Labor Day Outdoor Living

School is getting ready to start and Labor Day is right around the corner. Now is the time to get your yard ready for the Labor Day festivities.  Do you need to expand your outdoor living space? Perhaps, adding hardscape like a paver patio with a seat wall… or an outdoor kitchen…or a makeover of your existing landscape.

You would be amazed at how a few simple touches can make a world of difference…

You would be amazed at how a few simple touches can make a world of difference…a fresh application of Pineneedles or Hardwood Mulch, defined bed edges, sidewalks and driveway edged, and the pruning of dead or unruly shrubs. A small amount of work can go along way in defining your landscape.

A variety of perennials are blooming now, try adding them to spruce up your Summer landscape. Summer grasses are an eye catching addition to any landscape. There are also a few Summer blooming shrubs as well that will stay green throughout the Winter months. Try planting Butterfly Bush, Gardenias, or Verbena…these are only a few of the many plants that will add color to your Summer landscape.

Don’t let the heat of the Summer scare you away from adding plants to your landscape. Container trees and shrubs are kept under irrigation at the nursery and will thrive when put in the ground. Simply keep a check on the amount of water your new plants are getting and water as necessary. Trees which are balled and burlap and already dug are ready to plant anytime of the year. In ground trees will require a larger root ball if dug in the Summer…the only disadvantage to this is the weight of the tree will be much greater due to the size of the root ball.

Landscaping is a year round activity here in the South. Just don’t forget some plants need compost added to the bed prior to planting and NEVER forget to mulch. Not only does mulching enhance the plants in your yard, but it helps control weeds and helps retain nutrients and moisture.
