Mulching

Mulch is organic material that is placed over soil. Spreading mulch or mulching provides the following benefits to your landscape:

  • Inhibits the germination of seeds from most weeds
  • Reduces the need for the use of herbicides
  • Lessens the need for constantly cultivating bed lines
  • Moderates soil temperature on hot sunny days
  • Retains moisture during dry weather decreasing the need for watering
  • Keeps the soil in a loam state which allows your plants and bushes to flourish
  • Inhibits soil runoff during rain storms

Planting of Annuals

Annuals refer to flowers that grow, bloom and die in a single season. Petunias, begonias, geraniums and pansies are some popular annuals. Perennials are flowers that once planted will bloom every year such as tulips and roses. Most gardens have a combination of annuals and perennials. During the summer, you can alter both your plant bed design and the colors within. (Read More)

Fertilizing

During the summer there are several types of fertilizers that are needed. Two examples of this would be one to properly fertilize lawns and the second would be fertilizers for shrubs in planting beds. A proper fertilizing program prevents invasive plant species to take hold and ruin your lawn or bushes.
