Planting Bulbs and Seeding the Lawn

Project: Victorian Kitchen & Bath Remodel, Episode 10, Part 2



The 100-year-old clapboard home is ready for painting. Ronald Boyajian of California Paints checks the moisture level in the wood with a two-pronged meter before selecting a linseed oil-based tinted primer and Velvet Flat acrylic latex paint. In the garden, landscape designer Ruth Foster shows Bob how to plant bulbs correctly and how to reseed compacted, damaged grass.
