A yard that comes to life!

Flowers that blossom, a thick green turf, sparkling leaves, clear water trickling through the streams….and much, much more!

Our 18 years of experience have enriched us with a wealth of gardening knowledge. If you would like your yard to be and look its optimum all year long, take a look at some of our tips below:

During the early spring:

Fertilize: For healthy plants, add a carefully picked fertilizer at specific amounts at this time of year, or even a little sooner. Be environmentally sensible about your choices of the type and quantity of fertilizer used and always water when you are done applying, to prevent damaging the plants.

Prune: Cut off dead ends from your bushes, 4 to 6 inches from the ground level.  Ornamental grasses should also be cut all the way down to the base.

Mulch: After cultivating your flower beds apply no more than 2 ½ inches at one time. Add more mulch as needed, without ever going beyond the suggested height. 

Weed: Free your flower beds from all the annoying weeds at this time, before the weeds get a chance to multiply and cover your pretty flowers.

Later in the spring:

Prune: Have healthy bud sets next year, by pruning your ornamental bushes this year, two weeks after they flower. Also trim your roses, your vibrunum and forsythia.

Plant: Each plant type has its most optimum planting period. However, most plants can be embedded, when the winter cold has departed for good. Vegetables and some more sensitive plant types should be planted even later (during the early summer), when it has been warm for a while.

Composting: Spare the environment from your waste and also benefit financially, by constructing a compost pile in your back yard. In this pile your waste material will be transformed into compost ready for use.

Treat those bugs: Always be aware of bugs but especially during this time of year. Since each species is particular in its behavior, the Integrated Pest Management (IPM) method is best to use. This method is focused on providing treatments as necessary for each bug species.

 

Wait until consistently warmer temperatures have stabilized before planting more sensitive annuals and vegetables.
