    If you go to big botanical gardens in the early spring, one of the prettiest things you will see is a big lawn full of naturalized crocus and daffodils popping up through the spring grass. If you have a larger lawn area that doesn’t get a lot of foot traffic, or a lawn-covered slope that could use some brightening, this is a fun project to add interest. The key to naturalizing bulbs is patience. Patience to let the clumps grow over time and patience to let the grass grow in the spring after the bulbs bloom.

    After Labor Day, our gardening and lawn care focus immediately turns to fall. After what has been a dry season for many, we're finally seeing some rain from tropical storms.
  • 10 Sep
    The fall is one of the best times to repair the lawn from summer damage and to encourage thicker growth of cool-season grasses. In cooler, northern climates, overseeding is a lawn care technique used more for repair. In warmer, southern climates, overseeding is a matter of aesthetics.  In warm regions, the turfgrass will go dormant and turn brown for the winter. Overseeding with a cool-season grass will ensure a lush, green lawn all winter.

    If you want a beautiful lawn, you need to start with the right tools. A dull mower blade will rip the grass and lend the lawn a messy sheen. An improperly calibrated spreader will put too much or to little weed killer on the lawn, resulting in a weedy lawn or burnt grass.

    There's a lot of talk right now about lawn replacement. People all over the country are tearing out their lawns-at least part of them-and putting in groundcover gardens, perennial gardens, mulch, rocks, and hardscape. All of this to save time, money, water, and chemicals that are generally needed for lawn care. Ambiance

    I've mentioned before that I'm less concerned about lawn weeds than some people. I also firmly believe that the right lawn care will save you a lot of problems with weeds. However, there are some weeds that need to be stopped, and stopped early, or you'll find yourself without grass and with an entire field of dandelions.

    For me, my garden, lawn, and landscape is a reflection of who I am. My garden is my life, and my lawn is the frame to that picture. I don't usually do my own lawn care, though. I'd rather garden and let someone else mow. That doesn't mean I sit idly by, though

    Raise your hand if you're lazy about lawn care? Good, that makes two of us. "If it's green, mow it," tends to be my philosophy.

    My immediate inclination when there's a problem of one kind or another is to take care of it quickly, sometimes without fully understanding the situation. Case in point from last summer: I had about 5 yards of compost left over from a 12 yard delivery. Instead of carefully prepping the new garden bed I decided to create, I just started shoveling soil and making a new garden space.

    We're entering the heat of summer, which means we should all be looking for drought tolerant perennials.  In North Carolina, it is already HOT and HUMID.  The humidity does not translate to rain, unfortunately.  That doesn't mean the end of a beautiful garden, though.
  • 05 Aug
    Some areas of the United States are naturally drought-prone, or have dry soils throughout much of the year.  Other areas experience drought conditions from time to time.  To keep your yard looking its best through wet and dry, plant  perennials that are well-adapted to dry shade in your shady landscape beds.

    Summer's in full swing, and while some areas of the country are getting deluged with rain, others are scheduling lawn irrigation under water restrictions.  Just because there are limitations about how much and when you can water doesn't mean that you have to let your grass go completely.
  • 01 Aug
    During the heat of the summer, many homeowners dream of a lawn planted with drought-tolerant grass.  That doesn't have to be just a dream.  You can renovate your existing lawn, planting a drought-resistant variety, and care for your existing lawn in a manner that will make it more resistant to drought conditions.

    There are some vegetables that you need to plant almost before you think you should plant anything.  If you wait too late to plant these vegetables, you will not get a full season of harvest from them.  Some will not even mature before it gets too hot.

    Early March is a great time to think about scheduling your lawn aerating service for spring.  Over the previous summer, the lawn will have been subjected to a lot of traffic, causing compaction.  Soil compaction leads to a variety of other problems, if not alleviated, so it is best to alleviate compaction as early as possible in the year.
