Do something nice for him and he will appreciate it.

The Garden: Use fresh potting soil when planting containers. Always inspect your lawn thoroughly for grubs throughout the growing season. Working in the garden when leaves are wet can help spread many diseases. Wait until the foliage is dry before walking through the garden. Remember to cut flowers for fresh indoor arrangements early in the morning.
