Jason Pye and Doug Talk Political Gridlock
"That when we make progress, there seems to be, especially when it comes up in an election year, the halfway point to a presidential year, you know, it's one of those things and I say this I'm jokingly, as someone who tried to be in the Senate, you know, every day there's a hundred people in the world who wake up and believe they should be president. They're all found in the United States Senate. And you know, but why is it that we seem to always especially as Republicans? And some Democrats, frankly, if you look at it, go back to this idea that the only way to solve some of these societal eels is to go to a process we know really doesn't work and cost us money. When you're talking about criminal justice system, that is just this throw away the key mentality, lock them up no matter what. You don't have a second chance. You don't have a third chance. You don't even have a first chance. If you listen to some of the rhetoric. I mean, it works to a point. It's not negative ads. I mean, they work to a point, but at a certain point in time, truth needs to prevail out. And it's really frustrating at this point in time that you're seeing this rhetoric because we know we know this rhetoric doesn't work. I mean, I flip those numbers around the other side. I look at the 85% that haven't been rearrested. Those are large numbers to say, look, this is working. As we go forward, disturbing trend though I'm seeing an election. And I saw it in my election in the Senate race. I was vilified by the cities under miss laugh where four by her team for being a defense car for actually have represented clients in our confrontational system. Wow, actually upholding the constitution shocker in that regard. What was even worse is the ads run against me. We're not even clients of mine. They were actually my partners. And had Hispanic faces. We'll continue on. Again, but that goes to the heart of this sort of scare tactic that goes on. But now we're starting to see it again. But there is some hope that it's not working. I know you're familiar with the candidates in Indiana. One had helped on criminal justice. It was three candidates in the race. The third one who had had no background at all actually ended up winning this primary. So what I thought was interesting was the two Republicans, both had legislative backgrounds. Wanted health been helpful on bail reform and other things in Indiana. The other one attacked them for that and came in a distant third. Do you see some of this with the proper discussion and political will, if you would, winning out or do we still have a life? It's really hard to say right now. And speaking, speaking more to your race, because I watched that race. And I've never hid this publicly. I voted for you in the race stuck. I actually had a hard time working in a yard too. But in your race, it was pretty interesting because of the spinning that both the loeffler team and others were trying to do because they were saying that life were saying, oh, I supported first step back. It was the prison reform and redemption act that we opposed because that was the predecessor Bill the first step. And they were hitting you on that. And it's like, there is no difference between these two bills. The first step
How Should Republicans Respond to the SCOTUS Draft Decision?
"Years. Justice Alito brings up the question of impact of a bad decision on other areas of law. You just alluded to that. One of the reasons you overturn a bad precedent, even when it's 30 years old, it's case here, 50 years old is row, is because it's distorting the law in order to preserve it, which is what has happened on free speech, for example, demonstrations have to be so many yards away, things that are never accepted in any other category of law that abortion jurisprudence. So it's a persuasive opinion. What do you think Republicans? They're Republicans running today in Ohio, right? They're going to be asked this by a media that is very pro abortion rights. It's impossible to neither reality of the media. How do you counsel them to respond to questions about this today and in the coming weeks? A few I'm reminded of what our friend Larry orne says in response to claims that perhaps Shakespeare didn't write Shakespeare's plays. Or sonnets. Whoever wrote him is pretty darn smart. And while I, again, I don't want to speculate about the reasons for this leak or where the court is and it's deliberations or where this draft opinion is. Whoever wrote it is pretty darn smart. And they understand our constitution. And they understand, when I've always made that row is an anomaly in the court's jurisprudence. It was a right invented and a thin air contrary to hundreds of years of angular American legal practice.
Caller: The New Rules of Working From Home, Avoiding Woke Folks
"I got three quick ones, and I'll bounce them off yet. First, I work out of my home now and the other day, I blocked insurance for the house and car in my underwear and I talked to the insurance lady. She was in her bathrobe and her home office. So these are called Zoom camps. Now where we live, you don't have to commute, you don't have to pay the gas with a big car price, but you don't have to deal with a woke people at work. They're constantly, you've got to walk on eggshells every time you get around. And if you really good at what you do, you could go anywhere. Second thing is I'm finding that they seem to this three new rules. Number one is that you can't martyr enough for the woke. You just can't. That's right. The second one is you can not negotiate with them. They won't go for anything. And they'll try to get you off your spot and call your name. So why not? And number three, eventually you have to abandon them. It's just like poison ivy in your yard. Eventually you're going to figure out, you've got to just get rid of it. Dig it up and throw it in the trash. Chuck, I think you're absolutely right. And I thank you for that. And I like your way of analyzing it. I have to say, I have a small concern that's getting a little bit larger over this issue of everyone working from home. Look, I work from home an awful lot as an author as a radio host as a speechwriter and that sort of thing. I work from home a lot. I've been doing it for a long, long time, but it doesn't work out great for everybody. If you think about what a lot of us were warning early on with the COVID lockdowns and the COVID mitigation strategies, march, April, two years ago, a lot of us were very concerned about isolating people that were not used to isolation. There is a need for human interaction, social interaction for lots and lots of people.

The Science Used to Support Gender-Bending Kids Is Wrong
"So let me tell you some of the things the methodology that's being used to promote this nonsense and to pretend as if there's millions of kids around the world that all of a sudden little boys are playing in the yard playing with their GI joes or whatever the heck they play with nowadays. And then all of a sudden they're like, huh, I want to be a girl. Or there's a little girls that are in their bedrooms. I know four years old, 5 years old and they're looking at, you know, they're pretty night lights in the room and they have their Disney characters out the princesses all over the wall, and then all of a sudden they say, huh, I want to be a boy. The left wants you to believe that this is, this is just happening all over the place. Like this is an instantaneous phenomenon that's just happening and we have to let these children run wild. There's more children that want to be transgender than just the human beings that God created them as. Honestly, this is sad. I feel like the left and I believe, again, they're synonymous with the Democrat party today, and I'm not talking about the average voter. I think a lot of the Democrat voters are just misinformed, low information voters, you turn on to CNN, MSNBC, if all you go through is Twitter, you're just not going to be informed. It's really as simple as that. You have the wrong information. They're getting the wrong information. And when they do, they're going to arrive at the wrong conclusions. But we have to be willing as conservatives to start fighting back. And we have to start thinking a new ways to fight back. And one of those ways is learning how to frame things differently. Hat tip the federalists, the study cited to support gender bending kids, are largely junk science, and

Caller Surprised People Are Still Wearing Masks, Even When Alone
"I will tell you this. First off, I enjoy your show. Thank you very much. I am in my early 70s. Yes, sir. You know, I've retired. I retired once and I'm working again for the last 6 years just because I can't set home and do nothing. Sure. I happen to work in an auto dealership. I'm in and out of people's cars, different people, every day, all the time, I can not I can not believe that some of these so called intelligent people, I guess. They still, they still masks for some reason or other. You see a man walking through a wound walking down the road with nobody within a hundred yards of him wearing their mask. I've never seen any more fearful people in my entire life. Now, but let me respond, but allow me to respond to that for just a moment. We got to remember something. You and I are on the same page. We obviously agree completely. But here's what I think you need to remember. If somebody wants to wear a mask, let them let them, you know? I mean, we don't know what's going on in their life. They might have stage four cancer, Howard. They might have, you know what I mean? And I know that people are afraid. You and I are fed up and most people aren't anymore, but I do think we have to have a modicum of understanding for people who might want to wear a mask for their own particular reason. They might wear a mask Howard for the rest of their life. Well,

"Approaching your landscape maybe for food production. Maybe for a better lifestyle. This can be really helpful for you. All right guys so. I'm not quite wrapped up yet. I WANNA stop with just one last little bit and that is this. Goes back to our ethics the permaculture ethics in the permaculture pro directive the only ethical decision is. I take responsibility for ourselves and our children. So how can you take responsibility when it comes to your use of resources are consumption? Consumption is how control right. I'm there too right so I've got to work on this. But how do we use our resources? We use them officially in wisely. Do we do we reframe. What waste means and take responsibility for the waste were generating? That's where I think. A lot of people are missing out right. We don't realize the overall cost of our waste footprint so start thinking about that. What about our impact of our landscape? What we'RE DOING TOUR SOIL. Are we building soil? Are we degrading soil most people degrade their soil? That's a huge huge environmental costs. That takes nature ages to rebuild on. Its own we have the capacity to consciously rebuild our soil's if deliberately tried to do so so what's your impact on your landscape when it comes to your soil would about chemical usage. There's a huge environmental costs. Attributed to chemical usage the energy required to produce and distribute them and the environmental impact of their use itself on the environment and also on our own health. What about heat? This might seem a little silly. But really what we've done with urban development across the world is we've decreased buffering capacity of the world right. So what are we doing? On our own landscape to manage in buffer systems to reduce the impact of sun exposure on things. Have you ever stood on Hot? Blacktop surface barefoot. Have you ever stood on a hot forest floor? I haven't so think about the impact of your landscape and also you know segue into the next point. Think about what our yard used to be before development. What was your yard like? I could imagine that it was probably better off. It's just my guess. So what can you do? Maybe you didn't drive the bulldozer. That came of your landscape to flatten it. You didn't drive the excavator that Dugout your basement or crawlspace. You didn't drive the crane that raised the IBM to support your house right. Probably not but you live in that house you have a partial responsibility in what was done to scar the land where you live. So how do we rectify those previous scars? That's what I'm trying to do with my landscape. That's what I hope I can teach you hear it easy living yards. That's what I worked to teach through my membership is. How do we rectify the previous scars on our landscape to make our landscape purposeful in some way to produce a yield for us? So if this is important to you guys you have to commit to making a change here. It easy living yards in for you guys listening we are about to make. Let's try this again as as trying to be all you know like fancy and stuff right. Let's try this again. We are about making tomorrow better than today. We about living with intent with purpose and with passion. Permaculture serves as a tool to connect us to living with purpose and passion in making tomorrow better than today.

"Ask to get in touch with me directly Their view of you that have reached out to me recently. I'm just getting back into the gear of things here in early January. So if you've reached out to me within the past few weeks I've really tried to Make some personal time with my family so I apologize for the delay. I I will get back to you shortly. I have not forgotten about you guys. So if you guys want to get in touch with me easy living yards dot com slash ask is a great way to do so all right. So what's going on with me right for with Ben Hale and with easy living yards so if you have if you guys have listened listen to the past few shows. I've done a couple rewind shows and really toward Thanksgiving time. I started to do some just personal reflection on how things were going for me For our family as well And what I decided is to take a step back a little bit from the the the go go You know and you know really pushing. I've been really pushing this year to really make some positive changes is Through easy living yards to really try and make some differences for you guys Through my business and What I'm realising is you know I wanNa make sure I'm focusing enough on me in my family as well and I feel like maybe I haven't given enough energy and focus on on a especially with my family but also for myself you know taking care of myself and so I decided for for the month of December to play some rewrite shows. There's some really good shows that we've you know have aired in quite back quite a ways back and I wanted to bring those back to the service so the great shows great value if you hadn't heard from also worth re listen if you've already heard him in the first time so that was December and as it came up up to the end of December I was actually planning on doing episodes ninety nine in one hundred Regularly scheduled. It was really an awesome coincidence since that episode one hundred would have aired on January first. But what I realized is okay that that would be really cool. Just for the number and the coincidence since but maybe what's most important is for one to take a break from the show for you guys because really what's most important. On December twenty twenty fifth and January first is to be spending time with family spending time with self were. Your friends would ever not focusing on easy Z.. Living yards or thinking about your landscape or You know thinking about how to make positive it's just time for being. That's what I feel right now. At least okay. I've always aired shows during that time in the past but this time Both for me and for you my listener. I've decided that you know what it's it's actually should take a break especially because those shows The you know. Normally my shows come out on Wednesday mornings eastern time and those shows. It was exactly coincided with with Christmas and New Year's Day and so I decided you know what I'm just going to take a break from those shows instead of spending energy to produce those shows rose and to get them out on time which would have taken away from some some valuable family time. I decided to focus on that valuable and it was really wonderful spending some time with with my family's past couple of weeks so thank you guys. If you were expecting your show I apologize for for not having those shows come out and also for not playing ahead enough to let you know beforehand so That was the decision I made. I think it was a great decision. Both for you and for me. So now. We're coming into January of twenty twenty last last time I left you guys we talked about. DIY landscaping mistakes was the last show aired which was a rebroadcast from earlier? In the year I believe it was this this year Yes it was. It was right at the launch of the membership which was earlier in March of this past year Twenty nineteen so now here here. We are bright in the beginning of twenty twenty and you know toward the end of two thousand nineteen. If I'm honest guys I've been a little bit out of energy Just kind of running out of steam to be honest and I don't mean that in a bad way for you know this podcast or anything like that but just feeling like I've really invested it a lot of energy into the podcast that business. My own personal Career at at my nine to five work life as well as you. You know. A lot of Focus on trying to be a good dad and husband and take care of house and all that stuff and so it really left me just kind of out of steam toward at the end of the year and that's why part of why decided to reenergize and so during this focus time this re energy time would have really thought thought about is. What do I want this business? This podcast this brand to mean for me into also to mean for you You know those people you guys who care about this show And and what value you bring from it and also the positive change it can make in your life to create your own easy living yard and so what I've really trying to focus on for this year is to due to refocus this Bene- focus but really to help help me reemphasize A focus on making positive differences differences so living in working with purpose and intent. I've talked about that. In previous episodes of living with purpose living with intent. What that that means and so really for this year what I want to focus on his being purposeful being Choice F-full in what we do with our time our energy and our thoughts and how we focused that time energy and thought and then really try and keep it on a An even keeled positive Tiv- basis. And so what I mean is Personally at least I've really pressure I tend to just pressure myself a lot always. He's trying to make things better. Think about all the things that aren't done that should be done Whether it's with my landscape with our family with our house with my business here all the things you know I would love it to be right and instead we can re shift that focus and to say you know to focus on the positive things. We've done the positive change. We've made the wonderful things we have right now. And that's what I'd really love to for for myself and also for you you to potentially think about is how can we shift that focus to be thankful to have gratitude for what we have to you know not to make us complacent but to make us positively thankful for what we have what we've done what we've been able to accomplish to acknowledge that accomplishment and to continue to positively move forward with positive encouragement as opposed to a feeling of goods and and need to in that sort of thing. So that's what I they want to focus on with easy living yards for this year in November. If you guys were listening I'm also wanting to shift our focus a little little bit more Intensely on environmentally friendly landscapes so landscapes that are environmentally friendly. That are beautiful beautiful. That we're proud of that are wonderful places for our family growing so places that are wonderful for kids and that's actually a a big focus for me this year so if I shift gears now to give you a little bit of update on what I WANNA do with our yard in our family life this is a great segue so for our family life. There are a couple of bucks of things I want to do this year with our family life. One is focused on things to to to help engage our children better into educate them better. So that's one bucket. Another bucket is to start tackling or start positive. There we go start right. Positively reforming our landscape around our home to be beneficial for us in in a couple certain ways which I'll get into and third third just to calm down and and chill out a little bit right so to start living that focus on positive difference differences differences embracing the now into living with purpose and intent so realizing that all these things Stri- for I can live them now in the space in the life that I have now and continue to build toward that long term goal of what my vision is for that you know that goal so hopefully that makes says basically to embrace the feeling that went to have when I reach whatever goal I have. So let's talk about kids first rate so If you're not familiar I have three guys in our house and so my wife and I we have a six year old a four year old and a two year old awesome kids a lot of fun lot of a lot of energy And and also a lot of work you know like kids are a lot of work right And so one of the things. I really want for our children is always have a space of To feel like a feeling of sense of wonder especially at the young age they're at a sense of adventure spaces that are safe but You know invigorating and exciting and enchanting and You know for imaginations help with developed with learning with creativity All those things and so I'm really big on. I'm trying to have elements of free. Open play for kids And I'm trying to figure out how to have that in our home and in our landscape as well and the challenge challenge here is that my wife and I. We both have a tendency to be a little bit high strung Parents Always focused on what could happen right. And so we're always concerned that we might have some sort of safety issue with things or or whatever and so it leaves us a little bit High Strung a little bit Hovering at times when I'd rather not be and so we're trying to for one how to read and learn how to readjust our parenting styles and to be calm Tom and comfortable with our kids being able to somewhat you know manage their own safety and their own wellbeing while being close by in present at the same time but to give them the freedom to be children and likewise how to provide opportunities for free play for them where we can just let them be to be in their own element to be in their own world and to create their own well world as well And also at the same time to help develop learning experiences for them in in those spaces. So that's Kinda some summarizes a little bit of my goals or you know summarizes the loose term there right of course but you know it's it's kind of like the sharing of what's in my brain for. I'd like to have with our kids so there were couple ideas that I came up with on how I'd like to do this this year. and this is one of the things we're actually feel positively accomplished already which is awesome rate. It's only January six that the time of this recording I think this shows coming out on on January. Eighth so Yeah so we're doing pretty good rate so One of the things I thought about was inside things. Get a little crazy easy in the winter months so in southwest Ohio. You know. It's a little chilly for sending the kids out at you know. Usually it's just the two older kids or six year old and four year old We let them roam about outside usually a little bit more than we used to At least in the backyard they kind of have free free roaming the area now with us being feeling comfortable to be inside still But in the winter months it's a little tough you know you've got cold fingers runny noses cold feet If there it happens to be water around it changes things very quickly. Once they get a little wet And so it's a little tougher to let them just be outside for some time. A. and and be happy and so inside things get a little crazy a little. You know little Pent up a little bit cabin feverish sometimes especially in the the colder months. That are coming up ahead so had a few ideas. One thought was To turn our living room and two eight four building conducive SUV area. And so. That's what I did. That was one of the Christmas presents to our children was to Basically what I did. Is I marked. A bunch of studs across the room room in a is symmetrical as possible manner. And I installed a bunch of Eyeballs are ice cruise into the studs to be able to serve as Hook mounting places and so as a gift they got all these All these I is crews installed around the living room And then a bunch of ropes with hooks on them that are easy to cinched tight and A bunch of sheets as well so they had a bunch of clamps little clamps that they can cook the sheets on with so now they basically have an opportunity to build a bunch of massive massive forts across our living room and the intent. I haven't completed yet fully but any intent is how I installed these ice cruise was was. There's one at about three feet height and wondering about five foot. And so in between I intend to string up these little plant hangers with little little little tiny succulents and some pots. So at least looks. Like a decorative a decorative installation when the fort's not built so that way it doesn't doesn't look like these just a bunch of random Ice Cruise screwed into the studs all over the room so You know what if I can. I'll try to provide a photo of of the finished product. Coming up soon Maybe on our facebook page the guys if you're not on facebook or instagram. Make sure you follow us there.

"Okay Northern California Mediterranean Climate Zone Nine Ninety which is temperature rains twenty degrees Fahrenheit all the way to one fifteen gene Fahrenheit causes a factor although haven't worked out a budget yet You think we could come up with a plan. Okay so I kind of did a little bit of back and forth with Perry and he sent a few photos as well to really informative and he has this beautiful in ground pool right in the middle of his backyard some beautiful rock landscaping around as well and then a nice durable pathway. That kinda circulates around through the backyard. So there's some nice these bones there as well but the rest landscape is kind of left a little bit neglected so inbetween this this path in the pool and a surrounding it as well is basically kind of a lot of just kind of almost like dirt and then a few scrubby plants here and there but not much else and so it. It kind of looks a little bit bear a little bit like take like somebody got a good start on a project but then they kind of just left it. There's also a beautiful beautiful shade tree toward the back of the backyard. That kind of provide some what appears to be pretty nice shade toward the back there and so when we're thinking about your yard Perry here's some questions I The classic zero escaping design. As you as you asked about. I think would look awesome here especially fits into your climate. It is well you have a Mediterranean style climate. You have pretty dry Climate throughout a good chunk of the warmer months of the year. So you get some rain early on the year so nice moisture coming in. But then it's pretty dry so zero escaping matches that well for those of you who knows escaping his basically drought tolerant landscaping. And so it can have like a kind of almost like a you know various styles depending on what you want so it could have a desert looking style that can still look very beautiful. Can Incorporate a lot of rock landscaping You can Have a lot of you know harder. Surface materials like that and also some succulent style Plants very drought drought tolerant plants. or it can also be something. That's more just you. Typical looking landscape with a lot of plant coverage and just those plants are focused to be water tolerant as well so depending on what you want. That's your style But I think here specifically the focus would be drought tolerance especially if you want it to be low maintenance so you cover that space with things. That are very drought. Hearty Whether it's certain grasses that would look really beautiful there of course you're succulents as well You're you're kind of desert plants as well Would also look very beautiful and Perry. I'm going to follow up with you. The UC Davis Arboretum has a wonderful for plant resource as well for drought tolerant landscaping. I think you would find it. Helpful with a selection of lot of mostly native plants That would look really beautiful so in your space now. The other point of focus here is that you want wheelchair access and that's important so With with the existing path you have. Of course I would recommend keeping it as open as possible and not planning to two large plants to close to that landscape space right right there right next to your path because that can be difficult getting a wheelchair or scooter through that space if the plants are flopping over on top of the sidewalk area if that makes sense so you WanNa have basically shorter growing kind of clump forming plants. That are closer to that sidewalk and the further away. You can have those taller plants that maybe don't I need management throughout the year as much and In aren't going to get in the way of your existing access. Now if you want additional pathways you could additionally add and some poured concrete pavement. Kinda like you have with that sidewalk or you can go with something like a a crushed gravel or something. That would look really good in that space. Maybe especially if you coordinate some of that rock color with your existing Your existing path. So kinda match or coordinate your crushed gravel travel with that path a little bit or you could starkly contrast to If if you think it looks nice and And so like a something like kind of like a quarter. French crushed gravel would actually do pretty well if you kinda compacted bit And put a good base down It could do well with wheelchair access as well so something to think about there. If you don't WanNa go all out that's probably a little bit easier than something like paver Type Path which would be doable? All but it might require Some management especially because you still get some frosts there Certain Times of the year. Okay let's see So I I hope that answers your question pretty well there as far as getting a start maybe you want to talk about like landscaping closer in toward you know around the the poor area first and then if you get kind of a win there again focused on expanding out so again. Tackle the project one bit of the time with the most impactful spaces cases. I the parts that you find most important and then work your way out through. The landscape is what I suggest most of the time and I think it would work out here as well so I hope hope that helps If you have any follow questions likewise Give me a shout up so next.

I don't WanNa get deep on this but time is a finite resource we don't know how much of it we have and when it's gone it's gone when our time's gone it's gone rate and so what we do with our time how we live with purpose how Elizabeth tent matters and if we waste that time mowing grass pooling our weeds trying to keep up with the Joneses figuring out what the how to just you have a pretty yard right that stuff sucks away our life it sucks away time from things we could do that are more impactful with our life so that's why I wanted help you have a beautiful landscape that you can be proud of but also a low maintenance landscape that has a positive impact on the environment okay that's what I all about here at easy living yards is making that landscape purposefully so you can live life purposefully okay life is is not meant to be wasted guys that's my true belief in our lives here is that we're each meant for some sort of purpose some sort of life with intent whatever that means for you individually and it's up to us to figure that out for ourselves so today we're talking about my commitment to a better world through the people in this okay so let's just jump right in so when it comes to making a better world through the people in this world it starts with you it starts with me okay it starts with us you can change your yard and you can change your life how you perceive your yard and what it does for your life can change your life and how you live with intent three yard changes your life this is how it all ties together right when you see the yard is something that can add to your life and does not take away the time from your life just to take away time from your life in order to have another obligation to do that's when everything changes so when you're committed to having a beautiful yard that brings you fulfillment brings you refreshment brings you an escape from the hustle and bustle of the world and you you create that landscape in a way that gives back to you in that way it also back to you in the time that you aren't required to maintain it that's when we win okay so let's create a beautiful yard we don't have to have a scrubby landscape. that's just you know it causes all sorts of problems negative energy with the people around us because they don't see that beauty that they want to have in your yard instead let's create that for yard that you can be proud of that you can enjoy in likewise your neighbors perceive it as something of value and beauty at the same time let's create that yard that doesn't it tons of work to weed into Mo- into maintain like it does on your neighbors property okay think about this how much negative energy comes from our yards if I think personally I'm being honest here all right so we kind of talked about this recently a little bit when I had the you know the gals from welcome home on a few episodes ago by the way guys if you haven't heard that episode it was such fun recording with Pearson and Graham from the welcome home podcasts I had such an amazing time just talking about outdoor entertainment with him that's about living three yards guys right it's about living with is to embrace the people in our lives that means something to us and to have good fun memories together we've been living ourselves in our own yard in our own life with that because we're not super super proud of our landscape I'll be honest right I have a lot I would love to do with their yard and so I ended up being a lot of self critical or I ended up beating self critical a lot about our yard so think about how much negative energy comes from your yard and also how much negative energy we direct word our yard that's reflected back to US guys right the more negatively negatively we think about something the more negatively we allow I can't say the word negatively today apparently I'm just positive to say the word negative guys that's the problem here right so the more negatively we direct towards something more negatively we allow inside of us because reality it's an internal thought right negativity is is something we perceive in inside ourselves. about something else or about ourselves right so the more negatively we allow to happen anywhere the more negativity reflects onto us right okay so how much negativity is there when you come to think about your yard what about when you think about how you have to mow your oh I have to mow my yard after we'd my yard to treat my art after go spray my yard or mired isn't good enough right I think all of these things except for the treat part because I refuse to at our yard because I believe that we can create a safer space for my family without those chemicals so figure out every way to do something else without the chemicals okay. I hope you think about what you do when you spray something on your yard and what it means for the those people yourself included in your family that it affects your pets your children your pregnant wife a lot of these chemicals can have very harsh effects and they're not always things we can directly I see okay so just think about what you're doing okay I don't want to get off on a tirade I want this to be an inspirational show for all of us okay but but it really think about that negative energy that we might be directing at our yards or really that negative energy is long as we allow those negative thoughts to be inside of us that you've thought has an effect on our body and our wellbeing in her mind in in the way we feel during the day it so I'm making a commitment here to try and prevent those negative thoughts from resounding inside a me too me more positive about my landscape to be more thankful for what we have the beauty we already have in our landscape I've still going to try and motivate myself to always improve on that and and so in doing so be thanked for this the space I already have in the opportunity to improve it so I challenge you to do the same make a commitment to be positive about the space you have right now all right I think that's enough about negativity right now I get to I'm so used to saying it now I'm pronouncing it properly so let's focus on positively let's get some positive energy going here let's get some good juju going right all right so when it comes to what I wanna do with our landscape it's really about removing the work from her landscape so we can enjoy that space that time with our family with the people we love let's hope live with intent. Okay that's what I WANNA do I want to help you live with intent and you in doing so helping me live with intent because this I feel is portent part of my purpose here is to help you figure out how to have a better yard in doing so I'm hoping you and everybody else listening that commits to making a change make positive change and together we make a big difference that is important to me also replace that neighbor envy neighbor envy with pride and purpose so instead of being jealous of what your neighbor has in their landscape or how you know they have some you know they spend all this time making a beautiful space or they pay all this money you have professionals come in and create this space that's beautiful but it takes tons and tons and tons and tons of work right once that and being envious of that have pride and purpose in our own landscape design that beautiful landscape with purpose the purpose being that we are going to save maintaining that beautiful landscape an intern use that time for something more important let's also designer landscape with purpose that we utilize that space as best possible to live our life more fully okay so how do we do this how do we actually do this well of course this has whether you live in an Hoa or not right whether you leave in a community with certain landscape regulations let's design beautiful landscapes that people would be crazy to me casse remove let's create landscapes they're easy to maintain our easy for you easy for anybody that has to maintain them you don't have to be a plant contain a beautiful low maintenance landscape let's create landscape supports biodiversity okay there's more than just US living here on this planet make our landscapes a home for all sorts of creatures that can live in harmony with us okay they don't have to be pests they can be something that lives next to us peacefully with that causing problems if you love butterflies if you love birds if you love visa to distance where they won't sting you this is what I'm talking about all this features if you love ladybugs all these creatures deserve space to live there's fewer and fewer spaces nature preserves in undisturbed locations where the creatures can live our yards are the new national forests guys they're the new nature preserves there the new wildlife habitats so let's create one in each of our own landscapes let's change the world we live in let's reframe what it means to have a yard okay it's a space to create educational opportunities for your.

"Today. We're going to be talking about how to create the dream yard. You deserve we talk about creating beautiful. Yard should be easy less jump in and create great dream yard. You deserve right so you can enjoy more time doing what you love. That's the tagline of the show. That's really important to me and i hope it's you're learning. It's important portent for you too. It's so important because really our landscapes right are not what we're here for. We're here for greater purpose. I believe that i hope you believe leave that to and really try to show that <hes> in in this show in the podcast that we do here in everything i do it easy living yards so really when when it comes to creating the dream yard you deserve. What do i really mean when i say that and what does it really mean for you so that's what i want to dive into. Today's today's show before that i just wanted to say a few things one a quick life update another where i'm recording this podcast from and <hes> you know i just wanted to share a quick update in case you guys actually are interested or care or whatever i just really want to share the so <hes> my family we you just got back <hes> recently right before i'm recording this from a trip to canada which was really interesting so we we we drove <hes> from southern ohio up through quebec and it was such an interesting experience we really want to start introducing our kids to to learning about the world in educational experiences <hes> through the world around us so <hes> bringing new sites new locations into that as well and so we drove up to quebec city and then up even further to saint lawrence bay region and both were very fun. Experience is very interesting experiences. <hes> quebec city is predominantly french speaking as is most of the province of quebec and so that was very interesting nine french speakers but we wanted to immerse ourselves and our children into a different culture and that was one of those closest places we could do it where the the actual language language is entirely different and it feels very european there so it was really fun exciting really interesting <hes> experience and the kids really loved it so i just wanted to share that with you and hopefully you can engage if you have children engage them and other experiences you know it doesn't have to be that extreme but experiences that can teach them and show them new ways of thinking in new things to do each day because i really think it just means a lot to the kids to have been able to do that. Then we went up to the saint lawrence bay region to a an area called the saguenay fjord so it's actually i didn't realize they were such things fjords in any place other than like finland but basically a fjord is this giant giant ravine or giant crevice dugout pie glacier and then it becomes filled with water after the glaciers recede and so is this giant cliff region filled with water and right where this fjord enters the saint lawrence bay is a massive massive <hes> wael destination so wales come from all over the world all the way from the antarctic area up to this region to feed on krill <hes> this time of year and so it was awesome we went on this whale crews and we saw wales. It was so cool so i don't know if you've ever seen well so if you haven't definitely try to do so they're such amazing creatures and it's so crazy to actually see them in action and so anyway just wanted to share that with you ah what's going on in our life right now we are trying to educate our kids in different ways in have them immersed in different experiences even at it's such a young age as they are so our kids are right now are holding six youngest is two so it's kind of crazy the other thing so i'm recording according this episode from the sacramento area of california so i think it said sacramento. It's really late also when i'm recording this because because i'm on a business trip for full-time gig but <hes> you know easy living yards right now is a side hustle for me and for you guys that means you get to benefit from around for my passion and my side hustle business right and so am i. Fulltime hustle. I'm in sacramento for for business thing and and <hes> here. I get to be in california for the first time and so here in california. It's awesome. I get to see this climate that <hes> you you guys my listeners that are in california shout out to you guys in such a wildly different climate than what i'm used to in south and southeastern eastern ohio and it's very very interesting so cool to see this new region and i'm excited to be here. Why am here so all right. Let's jump bump into today's show so create the dream yard you deserve. What does that mean to you. What does it mean to me. And what am i trying to say when i say that okay so when i'm saying increased the dream yard you deserve. What does a dream yard mean to me well. There's a couple of things for one to me. When you create the dream yard you deserve. It's something you can be proud of all right so your your yard can be a source of pride something. You're happy with something. You're proud that you have it. Also it was a source of beauty something that's not ugly it kind of ties into that pride thing right so a source of beauty something you admire when you look at it something you feel comfortable people in right. It's also low maintenance. That's a big thing where we talk about here right so you can enjoy more time doing what you love right. So when it's low maintenance that means as you can do other things that means you can do things more important than cut your grass or pull weeds or spray chemicals right and likewise. It's a long lasting passing landscape something you don't have to be out there changing tweaking maintaining on the long-term or redesigning on long-term as well so <hes> those are all things that i think <hes> are are important to me an important to most people when it's about creating the dream yard do deserve likewise on a more personal level to me me for me. My dream yard is something that's healthy for my family for the world around me so when i talk about that really ties into my my desire for <hes> non chemical approach to landscaping to building soil health and plant health intern likewise a noninvasive landscape so something where the plants i'm using in my landscape aren't creating problems in the greater landscape that i like to talk about so outside out of our yard. I don't want to create problems out semi yard by by spreading profusely in disrupting habitats likewise. I want to create a beneficial habitat in my art so this again is a more personal goal might not be the same for you but for me knowing that my yard is actually providing a benefit to other creatures than just me being happy looking at it. My neighbors not complaining about my beautiful yard likewise <hes> something that's interactive so this is a goal with my kids. I want something that my kids can can enjoy and can be proud of as well and so <hes> something that they can learn from as well so <hes> those are additional goals for me in your personal. Goals may be different so when you're thinking about creating a dream yard you deserve. It's important for you to think about what are these elements of a dream yard for you right and we'll get into that in a little bit with with scarring that and now another thing i want you to think about is what's not ideal right and so that might help you clarify your goals your vision in a dream yard for you so when it comes to what's not ideal when i think about that. At least i think about something that's ugly right. This is kind of the opposite of what we just talked about something. That's ugly so appealing right looks unkempt potentially something something labor intensive so takes a lot of work takes away from the joy in your life takes away from the time you can spend with your kids your families or to do the things you you love. Something disease prone right that means. You don't have happy plants. Don't does means you don't have a healthy landscape and so that creates work right likewise something. That's weedy is not ideal. That's additional work means you'd landscapes not properly manage or not properly designed to to prevent weeds from occurring as a problem right something that's stress inducing is not ideal so if it's something you're not proud of something so you have to work on a lot whatever that is whatever that stressor is. We want to remove that from your landscape right likewise something that causes neighborhood eh problems. What do you mean by that. Will you don't wanna landscape. That's going to stick your landscape out and become a focal point in a negative way. If it's a focal point point in a positive way that's great but you don't want something that's causing problems. We have to spend time fighting swimming upstream or whatever to to have the landscape that you have have instead. You want something you can be proud of that. Also <hes> is socially acceptable enough to where you don't have to have problems with your landscape okay so we've talked about what i think. Dream yard is in one. It's not right but why does this matter better. Why do you deserve your dream yard. Well here's where i get deep guys right. Get get down in there and really dive have deep and make this all serious and stuff right and and this is true wa- cheesiness aside. I can't help but be cheesy especially when it's talking about about something. That's a little woo right. So here's the reality. Your life is too important for your landscape chores. Your life is too important for your landscape. Chores chores okay. There are more important things you can be doing with your life. Yeah maybe sometimes you sit there and binge watch netflix right. I do too and it's kind of a waste of time the life let's face it but sometimes we got a veg out as true right. Some people say that's why they like to cut their grass. That's true to an extent but we don't need to be rescheduling life around our landscape and that's the big difference right. We can't just let the grass grow and we can go. Cut it whenever we want. One we wanna vege out. Do reality is when you grass needs to be an easy get cut when the weeds need to get pulled. They need right when you have a problem with your landscape and you have to to maintain it. That's work and it's not work. You can just flex around everywhere and so we need to cut that out. We need to create a landscape. We can be happy and proud out of that's not tons and tons of work at the wrong time instead. We wanna landscape that we want to be out there. Maybe working on it right. That would be an awesome ideal experience something where we can go kind of tend to it more like fiddling around that it's probably better that we don't because designed zayn so awesome and so well because you did such a good job designing and installing. You don't need to be doing anything right. That's the yard we want okay because your life is too important for landscape shorts. Your yard should add value and meaning to your life instead okay so this could be through many do things which i'll talk about a little bit ways that your yard can add value meaning to your life likewise. There's something better for you to be doing if i haven't said that clearly enough in different ways. There's something better for you to be doing than working on your yard okay unless it's your escape from reality right. If it's your your escape from the stresses of the world i get that right. We can still design a low maintenance yard so that way when you want to escape from the sources the world you can do something with your yard but when you don't have the time for that your yard we'll take care of itself right so that's why you deserve your dream yard. Guys has your life is too important for landscape chores..

"Two of the easy living yards podcast today. We're going to be talking talking about how there's a fungus among us. That's right guys. We're talking about the benefits of fungus in your soil as we usually think about when you you think about fungus you think alike toenail fungus or you know nasty poisonous mushrooms or something like that right well today. We're going to be talking about fungi. Fungi are fungi. Whatever you wanna say. Let's face it. I'm a fun guy right okay. All the jokes are out of the way by now. Hopefully maybe i have a few surprises that my sleeve you never know right okay but the reality is the world of fungus is so diverse so crazy that we don't even <unk> as humans. We don't even understand and know about it. We're still discovering new stuff about this stuff. Fungus is like this weird kind of. It's this is weird organism that somewhere between a bacteria and plant and in a single celled. You know little amoeba kind of thing. It's somewhere in there without getting techy all right. I'll try not to get super nerdy on you guys today but the reality is this super diverse group of organisms. There are tons of very very beneficial fungus that are super important for the health of your plants the the happiness of your yard in the low maintenance value. Are you in your yard too so that's the cool stuff. We're going to be talking about today. We're not gonna be talking about all the nasty toenail gunk in that sort of thing and let's face it to there are pest pest fungi as well and so <hes> when you're talking about your plants. Some plants can be attacked by a mold or some sort of you know infection in a fungal infection. Usually you know they say it's a fungal disease right well so we'll get into that and talk about <hes> how cool that stuff is now before we do that. I wanna share something with you guys and that is over the past few weeks to pass a few months. I've been approached by multiple multiple companies <hes> that have been looking for sponsorships and looking for me to promote their products. We're talking about big companies like john. Deere troy bilt that that sort of thing and i have turned them down actually even though i've mentioned their names here because i don't want to specifically endorse a product that i'm being paid eight four and so this is a absolutely free podcast that i have been <hes> putting out there to help you guys transform your life through your yard right. We want to have a low meanest landscape. That's beautiful something we can be proud of that. Also benefits are life by giving us back joy and giving us back time and that's what we're all all about here at easy living yards. I don't want to murky that up to cloud that up with <hes> promotions and sponsorships or whatever <hes> paid endorsements that sort of thing and so. I wanna make it clear to you. I am trying to give you guys as an honest perspective as possible that i can give you without being clouded by some of those things and so the way i make money here at easy. Living yards is through my membership and so you guys supporting me in me helping you in turn to transform your yard so so few are appreciative of this show here if you want to keep it free and you also want to transform your yard and you ready to take that step to make a big changing landscape consider the easy living yards membership. You can always go over to easy living yards dot com slash membership and check out how to join the membership there okay so i just wanted to let you guys know that i have been one hundred percent clear on that but yeah i've been approached by these giant companies you know and it is i'll be honest. This is kinda tempting right. It's kind of cool to be perched by some big companies and and and they're saying hey. We want you to support our product. We're gonna come on your show. We can talk about about it. <hes> and we basically want me to be an advertiser for them and i've turned them down and so i wanted to share that with you guys. I'm kind of proud out of them. I self so i just wanted to share that with you guys as well and i'm proud that you guys are here listening to me supporting my show as well and helping us all make a positive change in this world okay okay so let's jump back into our fungus among is episode all right so today's going to be kind of <hes> really an informative episode. There's not specific <hes> things you can do except for one tip i do have at the end of the show that can really help you boost the health of your plants so stick around for that. <hes> i guess yes. I have a couple there so i take back what i said all right so <hes> i have a couple of tips for you that you can benefit the fungal life in your soil and how that can help with with actually benefiting your plants as well as reduced working your landscape so before that i just want to kind of this kind of be like a a more fun than your typical science lecturer you had in school that you've slept through <hes> but hopefully a bit more fun than that <hes> introduction to to the benefits of fungi in your soil bill okay so first off. There's multiple pronunciations just so you guys know. I use them kind of interchangeably now that i'm a little more self conscious about how i say i realize i say fungi fungi and some people say fungi fungi as well. Those are all acceptable pronunciations as far as i can tell from wikipedia so you know that's an official source now these days right <hes> but they all mean the same thing. Basically it's this group of all right now now. Here's the nerdy definition for you. Fungi are eukaryotic organisms so they're more complex than than bacteria. Is that what that means so they have basically the same internal cellular structure as humans and and more advanced animals like mammals fish reptiles is that sort of thing so they have a similar internal cellular machinery has what that means and there's two groups of fungi. There's yeast and molds yeast are single celled. Molds are multi celled so molds are your typical u._c. Mold growing on your bread right you see a mushroom pop up. That's the fruiting body of a mold. <hes> so molds are really the ones we're going to focus on today <hes> yeasts there's also plenty of beneficial piece as well as there's plenty of yeast that are not beneficial official right but just like fungi just like bacteria <hes>. It's the same thing so what we're focusing on usually the classic perspective. Is these things we you can't see. These little organisms we can't see is that they're bad. We don't want them well. That's changing and that's what we're talking about. Today is when it comes to fungi especially molds olds. There's a lot of modes that are incredibly important and actually necessary for good healthy plant growth and that's what we're focusing on today so when it comes to your garden what do fungi really do well. Let's step back essentially good soil equals is having good microbial life in your soil good bacteria good fungi <hes> good yeast good mold <hes> good nematodes little tiny warms that you can't really we see all sorts of things are right and good. Microbes equals good soil. Basically it's synonymous. When you have good soil you have a good life basis this for all sorts of levels of life and all those different levels of life support healthy plants in a healthy ecosystem in your yard and that's really important and because it prevents you from having all these chemical inputs which actually kill the soil life so it's kind of a reverse cycle <hes> you know killing your soil life eagles requiring chemicals eagles killing your soil life and so it's the reverse process and so building in good healthy soil allows you have good healthy beautiful low maintenance plants that the disease free pest free and trouble free and it's it's crazy. We'll talk about some of the cool things that fungus can do in just a moment so if you think about this when you think about healthy forest healthy forest soil has very high fungal content when you pick up that i i don't know if you guys have ever done this but i'm kind of a a nature lover and stuff right in addition to being a nerd right and so i've i encourage you if you've never done on this without damaging the forest too much so maybe close to the trail and the spot that doesn't look like it's got a lot of erosion where a nice big pile of leaves push away those is leaves a little bit and and take a scoop of that soil underneath. It'll probably be hard to pick up because it's all interconnected with a bunch of what seems like little tiny roots and those czar a ton of roots but also in there is tons and tons of networks of fungal heidi or fibers and so basically veasley. You're pulling that soil apart then take a smell of that beautiful wonderful earthy smell that people describe when they're you know like the somali a with their wines. It's a wonderful wonderful earthy aroma right so that's what we're talking about right your your smile and the real thing the somali it would be overwhelmed with joy at the wonderful smell of a good healthy sort force for in my opinion right so it smells awesome and smells healthy. When i in contrast you think about that nasty like putrid area where there's been a bunch of water sitting for a while and you get that like funky nasty st smell from it. That's soil. That's lacking in fungal life. Lacking in soil health and generally speaking is a bunch of anaerobic bacteria belching off these these nasty fumes. That's creating kinda funky space. That's what that is so. That's the opposite right so good healthy. Forest soil is good healthy fungal life in that soil okay so what we're trying to do is we're trying to be inspired by that forest. We're trying to replicate some of that in our yard which is actually very easy to do okay so let's talk about the benefits of fungi. How's this stuff actually beneficial for us. Well i what fung i do think about it from the very conventional perspective you have a loaf of bread in your pantry. That's been sitting there while what happens right. Well somehow magically. Don't know where but somehow got moldy right. It gets a little spot on how the heck did that. Get in there because i mean touch that part of the bread and somehow basically what happened is. There's all it takes is a tiny little spore one little spore. It's this little tiny microscopic piece. It's it's basically like a seed right. It's a little preserved cell and that all it needs is the right conditions and it waits and waits their spores that have been unearthed like with the dead sea scrolls. They research the spores on them to see how how long they've been there. I think that's correct but i i do remember at least that the dead sea scrolls had spores on that they discovered from thousands thousands and thousands and thousands of years ago and they were still viable spores. That's crazy guys so fungus can preserve itself and wait for the right moment so that right moment in your pantry is when that bread starting to get a little funky but it still has a little bit of moisture in there that sports i hope time to grow oh it pops up and you get that bread mold right and then that fuzzy stuff you see is when it's starting to dry out and it's saying it's time for me to create new spores before i run out of food run out of moisture so that's what happens is that little fuzzy stuff is actually tons and tons of little tiny spores replicating waiting to do the same thing again right and so what i'm kind of highlighting here is.

"What's up. I'm Ben Hale and this is the easy living yards podcast. Creating a beautiful yard should be easy. Let's jump in and And create the Dream Yard. You deserve so you can enjoy more time doing what you love. <music> welcome to episode seventy five of the living yards podcast. I hope you're having a wonderful wonderful summer when this podcast is coming out. It's the early part of July. I'm actually recording this prerecording. This show on July fourth so happy belated fourth to everybody out there that is <hes> of Merkin descent and <hes>. I'm having a wonderful summer with my family. I hope you're doing the same. <hes> things are busy. Things are crazy are are landscape is is not where. I'd love it to be. I I'm guessing you're probably in the same boat too. <hes> and that's why we're here right so <hes> but life is good. We're having wonderful time with our little guys <hes> this summer. They're enjoying the outdoors. We've finally gotten a a vegetable garden planted planted here in southwestern. Ohio where June was the wettest June on record and pretty sure it was ridiculous. It was super wet and we couldn't really plant stuff in when there was a gap. It just didn't work out for US so finally we've gotten some plants in the ground who've gotten some seeds in the ground and hopefully we can get something of a yield field this year. If not hope we can get something that the boys enjoy <hes> with our garden. That's really big purpose for our garden. <hes> vegetable garden is to just just really have something to teach our kids where food comes from to have some nutritious healthy food <hes> if we get an yield and just to have them to do something they can see an impact of what they do anyway all right nothing to do with the show today. I just wanted to wish you a happy summer. We're jumping right into summer here. and you know that's when it gets hot gets a little crazy with time and events going on and it's really important to think about our yards and how they're not not so important right to focus our priorities on what is important and to not worry about spending so much work on our yard when we could be doing things that are more meaningful Oh okay so today's show. We're talking about safe mosquito control. Let's face it mosquitoes. They suck. right so so. How do you prevent them from causing such a problem with you and your family? They're huge discomfort. They're considered the the number one most lethal animal in the world for humans <hes> which is kinda crazy right to think that such a small insect causes such a big problem well. Luckily here in the states it's where I'm recording this. They're not as big as a problem as other parts of the world but they are responsible for transmitting disease right. We've heard in the news recently about Zico. the virus we've heard about. West Nile virus a few years ago <hes> other parts of the world. It's Dan Gay fever malaria. I'm going to mispronounce this one but chinking Julia. I think is what it's called. Those are all pretty serious diseases that are transmitted by mosquitoes these little guys right they cause a big problem and so what Do we do about it. Well a lot of times. You know what we do. Is We go out. We get some bug spray right some defeat. <hes> we get some. Maybe we have somebody. Come mm by intrigue our yard to prevent <hes> mosquitoes right from causing such a problem in our yards <hes> a lot of municipilities actually have a truck that comes around and sprays brazen fogs the air. There's a lot of things that are done to to deal with. Mosquitoes will reality is those things aren't always the safest thing This is a show based on my opinion so it's a very controversial issue. Some people don't mind this and if you don't mind wondering what is safe mosquito control you can go ahead and skip skip this show and that's totally fine but if you're here and wondering what you can do to keep your family safer mosquitoes and not have to worry about the chemicals you're using to do so stick around and we'll have some chats about how we can do this. Now I before we jump into that I want to understand or just get us on the saint page. I guess as to what don't we really like about Mosquitos. Why don't we like mosquitoes. I think this one's pretty obvious rate but but we just kind of touched on it right so they they bite you they suck your blood right and in doing so they can transmit disease and aside from that. They're just uncomfortable right. They cause itchy bite and that <hes> you know leaves you with something that causes a little unsightly well and kind of itches right so <hes> it's not the funnest thing in the world and they can be dangerous. dangerous right so so that's why we don't like them but are they actually a useful part of our world. Do they actually Z. Matter Right. That's a that's a bigger question. I just want to give us a perspective. Here is really why I'm asking this question well. The reality is mosquitoes. They're They're actually pollinators. They actually pollinate plants which we've been learning you know we've been suffering major pollinator decline over the past couple of years and Mosquitos are a fundamental part of that pollinator system so they actually drink nectar when they're not biting you in sucking your blood the female mosquitoes do that to nurture and nourish their eggs to allow their eggs to develop a and that's why they suck blood but aside from that adult mosquitoes also also feed on nectar from plants and so they are actually really important pollinators likewise they feed wildlife so aside from biting. US and sucking your blood they also our food sources for birds bats their larvae or food sources for frogs and fish and a ton one of other animals as well are supported by the existence of mosquitoes so just completely eradicating mosquitoes from existence while it might be more comfortable for humans in the short term right reducing the transmission of disease. It'd be awesome to to cut away. The disease transmission piece right but the reality is there also serve a fundamental piece in each ecosystem. They exist in okay so I just wanted to give that perspective. I'm not saying mosquitoes. is a good like. I said early on there the number one creature most responsible for human death so they're they're a problem right here in the United States. They're not as much of a problem. Okay so are jumping to the next topic are the current solutions really safe are they safe well. A lot of them use synthetic chemicals <hes> we've all heard of defeat right so deep is a synthetic chemical that that was found to repel mosquitoes and it's very effective. It works now. The reality is there's a substantial amount of research. That's been done that shows it might not be the safest chemical for us at the same time so while it is very effective like a lot of synthetic chemicals they are effective at their target purpose but at the same the time they're not without side effects and the question that you have to decide for yourself is whether those side effects are worth it and so deep and other synthetic chemicals in the current solutions they do all have known side effects and such as you know causing cancer and so it's up to you to decide whether that's important to you. We've all heard or most of us have probably heard of the Chemical D._D._T. While D._T. he is a banned pesticide that was used widely to treat for mosquitoes in the past here it caused massive environmental ironmental and human problems and finally after causing massive widespread problems that was completely and and thoroughly substantiated was the chemical finally band. We're still suffering from the effects of it. We still have <hes> a lot of you've predatory birds that they suffered massive <unk> population declines based on the use of t t t and it's persistence assistance in the environment and so they are still bouncing back from that years and years after it's been okay so enough on that another piece that is is used quite extensively right now as a group of chemicals called pirates piracy threatens our synthetic chemicals that are inspired. by a a chemical that exists naturally in the chrysanthemum flower. You might know this flower more commonly as the mum so mums had this chemical in them that they secrete and when it's concentrated it was found that it had repellent effects on mosquitoes so that's It's really cool right well. Then we took this inspiration and we created other groups of chemicals very similar to that that were derived synthetically in these returns are are considered largely right now. They're they're considered safe. Whether I believe that is another another topic but ah they are considered safe for use and these things because they're considered safer use are used very widespread right now and now there's research coming out. That's this showing that they might not be as safe as they once were considered okay and so these pay reasons are used quite extensively and in a lot of products and so for you out there. It's up to you to decide and to do the research what's right and safe for you and I said pirates. Piracy veterans are actually an I have to make a correction here. Perry three are the naturally occurring extract from the Chrysanthemum Flower and pay wreath royds are these synthetic ones so really doesn't matter a whole lot <hes> both chemicals. Even the naturally occurring one is is considered <hes> not not necessarily safe. There's research is showing that it might have some alternative or some side effects some some health effects so okay. I don't want to dwell on miss too much. I just want to highlight because a lot of us. Don't even think about whether the stuff we're putting ourselves or putting on our kids or dogs or putting in our landscape that can expose booze or kids are a dog's might actually have an effect right and so it's is really raising this question kind of putting this bug into your so you can go out and make your own decision as to whether or not you think this stuff safe and whether or not you want to use it okay so what about yard treatments right This is a really popular thing right now. It's quickly growing in popularity is to get your yard treated for mosquitoes and so with your treatments <hes> <hes> so there's for example. There's a company. I don't necessarily endorses company in fact I don't is a company called Mosquito Joe. They're really the really popular around our area right now and across much of the United States and they tout this <hes> their slogan is making outdoors fun again I think or making outside fun again well. Yes they take care of the mosquito problem that they're effective at which is good right. That's really good but is it safe. They claim to be safe. They use piracy throat and again. Maybe in specific use. They're not necessarily bad but in widespread use that's the unknown and right now. They're being used widespread and this chemical exposure to these prior. Eastwood's it can expose your your kids your pets yourself fish and bees now. This exposure kids in pets specifically are much. more sensitive than adults to chemical exposure likewise pyrethrum are well known to be highly toxic take to aquatic life so that's fish so this. This stuff kills fish likewise. It's coming out that it's it's now been found that these these chemicals these pirates while they're targeted for mosquitoes. They also kill things like your pollinators bees. rate. We're hearing a lot about bees right now. honeybees this highly toxic to honeybees and other pollinators butterflies okay. These are the things we care about right so while we don't like mosquitoes. It also has these non target effects on other insects on fish and potentially on your kids in your pets too Now I do have to say there's there's a saving grace here and that is that mosquito and other companies. Some of them do have a quote natural option okay. They claim it's not it. It doesn't last as long okay but at least this company. I've talked about mosquito. skewed Joe. Their natural option uses garlic oil or a mixture of Rosemary peppermint oils..

Let's jump into today's episode. Today We're talking about something a little different. Maybe it's you know that that spontaneous intro <hes> matches pretty well. Today I want to talk about how we can just relax and chill. It's just your yard. That's the title of today's show relax and chill. It's just your yard. We get so caught up in in all this. You know day to day stuff of trying to keep on top things and take care of all of our chores in our yard is. is just the same guys we especially this time of year around. The mid West in northern Cincinnati where I live people are scrambling every day during the work week during the weekend <hes> they're scrambling every day. I see my neighbors. Somebody's out in their yard hustling to try and trim things. We'd things Mo- mowing Thing is everybody's mowing all the time around us and <hes> you know just trying to keep on tops keep up with the Joneses right so I want to teach us that we can just relax and chill. Try and enjoy life a little bit more in refocus on our priorities. Guys are priorities is not keeping our yard beautiful and trimmed yes. We want to have a beautiful yard and I wanNA help you do that through the work here easy living yards. Yes there is some work to get there right eight but we don't have to have a yard that we have to work on all the time in order to have a beautiful yard too so that's what we teach her okay so I'm I'm just GonNa Kinda. Jump in today and we're going to get into just kind of just it's going to be a little bit of a free form show. <hes> I like to keep these these types of shows a little bit more a free form <hes> just so we can just kind of you know sometimes. There's a flow to it right so so. Let's get the flow going all right. So how can we just relax lacks in chill in our yard not be so caught up in an always having to scramble to stay on top of stuff and always being self conscious. You know that's a big piece of feeling self. self conscious or feeling like our yard is not good enough well. The first thing in the very most important thing is to focus on what is important focused focus on our priorities. If we can't focus on our priorities of life Nessa I'm talking about here. What are our real true priorities in life when We're talking about things like taking care of our yard and just the typical chores or you know trying to repair her house. Make it a better place. <hes> we get caught up in. You know things that You're not the true priorities so it's really important for us to stop to take a breath to breathe and to just be. and during that process start to focus on what our real priorities that's really import to think about you know. I'm just have a a few ideas here of like what is your priority for you. It's different for each of us and there's no judgement here but it's important for you to focus on really what is important and this does not to be Dumi and gloomy but this does tie into when you get to your last few breaths. What are you going to be proud of. What are Are you going to be thankful for and what are you going to have regrets for. Hopefully we don't live with too. Many regrets by you know the end but or you know her her next transition right <hes> but it's important to think about what are those things. We wish we didn't spend so much time on or so much effort or stress. address on so what are your priorities. Is it your family your. Maybe it's your spouse your friends. What about your career. career. How's that factor. In what about your yard. What about Your Yard Work Right. <hes> what about your legacy. What do you You want to leave behind. What's that importance to you. What do you think your legacy is. Do you have a legacy. What about your community. How important is your local community or how important is it maybe to find community. Feel like you fit in order to feel like you're part of something. What about mowing your lawn. How important is that Is that really a priority maybe it is you know maybe you're maybe your lawn is or maybe your yard. This is probably not true but just just just to entertain this idea right as I mean maybe you're yards some artistic expression of yourself right and so maybe that is really important to you and and maybe the specific way you do that. Activity is important to you. Maybe you find mowing your lawn a form of meditation right. Maybe it's your escape escape from the day to day and maybe that's true but I challenge you to to really think about. Could that time be better spent doing something else else for each of these questions is it a priority is it not and why in my opinion opinion are yards should serve us so our yards should should basically help us. Live our life okay and if it's not doing that I think something's and things not properly aligned or not properly designed me. If I consider myself a landscape designer I don't know Would I consider myself to be honest but let's just pretend I'm a landscape designer for right now. If I consider myself a landscape designer I I see most of our problems with our yards design. Issue things are designed in a way that serves us. Our yards should service. They should should help us live our life and so how how do we frame our yard to do that. How do we make best able to serve. or life instead of us be servant to maintaining our yard to some appearance that we feel like we have to maintain because we think we're going to be graded on how our yard looks at the end of our life or something I get you know sometimes yet we live in an area where they require certain things and and you know if you're not ready to move because of that. You have to live by those conditions right well. We can also redesigned your yard to to still meet those conditions but require less work. work. There's a transition process involved. There and I'm kind of getting ahead of myself here but <hes> let's step back so our yards should service right. I've repeated that a few times already are yards should help us live our life. Our Yard is really if you think about it. It's the the setting where life takes place. It's the it's the piece of earth where our home lives and where we live right so that piece of earth is is really our life right. That's important so how you treat your yard for one is a reflection of how you live your life but also how you live in your yard is part of living your life. It's a reflection of how you you are with your life. So how do you really create create. This space where you feel at ease in your yard where you feel like you can live and where you feel like you have to work <unk> oddly enough creating the space where you feel at ease in your yard. It begins inside of you. It has nothing to do with your yard itself. It has everything to do with you. How you perceive things and how you act upon your perceptions so when you think internally about creating this space. Where you feel at ease in your yard. It all starts with that mindset that our yard serves us our yard. it is the setting of a of the story of our life. It's where we always come back to the end of every day we transitioned through this space into into her home into our bed and with our family? It's where kids grow up. If you have kids to where pets grow up if you have pets right it's where we we relax where we chill as the today's show right relax and chill right so this is the space where we live. It's the best moments elements of our life could happen here so this begins within embrace the reality that this is your setting. This is your space piece. This is your piece of earth in live with that. That's the next piece is to begin to live with that. Instead of worrying ebb. Everybody else perceives just live with the fact that this is your setting. This is your space. This is your piece of earth you own that piece of earth right yeah. Maybe you rent or whatever but I'm talking about that. This is you this is your home okay and so your home part of the home Is Your Yard and your home in your yard or an extension of yourself. Okay so once you kind of get that internal little perception that this is your space and our yard should serve us. This is a space for life instead of a space for work Once you begin to embrace that and really feel that then we begin to create the reality that's within us so I you have to have that serves us and in our yard as space for where our life takes place in the setting of I okay so we're ready to create it right. We're ready to create this dream space. Where Yard serves us where the setting of our life takes place right. We're ready to create that because because now there's a disjointed reality right within. We believe that we feel that we embody that an externally. They're still this work that needs to be done right. They're still mowing the lawn pulling weeds. Maybe you have to treat your lawn. Maybe you have to irrigate your. John Right. There's all that stuff involved. How do we transition from that work that all that stuff that doesn't add to your life. That doesn't allow you to relax and chill. It doesn't allow your yard to serve you at doesn't allow your life to take place in this beautiful space. That is your piece of earth right. There's elements there. There are always elements there right. How do we create that full reality. We're now creating your dream. Yard it. I'll be honest that does not happen. Overnight eight can't happen overnight. This is a transition process. Every Transition Process requires work right climbing to the top of mountain requires work or else wouldn't be such a great achievement all right but reaching the top of the mountain is a wonderful achievement. manifestation of that internal reality for you now because again inside of you you live the reality that your yard serves you. You live the reality that this is the setting where your life takes place once you look at reality within you can't help but created around you right and and what I want to do with the easy..

Let's jump in and learn how to have healthy the youthful yard with less work so you can enjoy more time doing what you love. What's up in welcome to episode sixty nine nine of the easy living yards podcast today? I've got an interesting one for you here. <hes> we're going to be talking about exterior interior design design. That's right. It's a kind of a mouthful but basically what we've done is. I've been a guest interviewee on the big design small budget podcast podcast with Betsy Helmuth from affordable interior design. I had the good fortune to be on her show and had a wonderful time talking with her and I wanted to share this interview show with you. <hes> I do apologize in advance. The audio quality turned out horrible <music> on my end unfortunately so something happened with the Mike Hookup and we conducted the interview and afterward <hes> found found out that yeah the audio was horrible so betsy. If you're listening I sincerely apologize for the the issue and I'm pretty sure it was on my end. My I audio sounds really bad so anyway. If you guys can stick through the Audio I'm warning you in advance that it's not the greatest but <hes> it was great. Show wonderful careful discussion had a great time talking with Betsy and I want to share that with you today so I'm not gonNA mess around anymore. I'm the lettuce jump right into the show and I'll a follow up with you. After the end.
