Are you ready for spring in your backyard? Ready or not, here it is! Homeowners are suddenly spending a lot more time in their backyards. As they head out and deal with the issues from a long, snowy winter they want cover and color and they want it fast.
We really only have about two weeks of growing season left in the our region of the northeast. You need to use the clock to your advantage because you need a solution now. Look to mature plants that require as little growth time as possible. Choosing flowers and plants such as Proven Winners means you’ll get to enjoy the benefits of the foliage without having to invest the energy and time – both of which are in short supply!
To get a head start for next time, while you’re working on the flowers and plants, turn to your lawn. It could be healthier and if it was, then it would look a lot better. Take just a few minutes and fertilize the lawn, overseed it and aerate/patch any bare areas. The results from just a few minutes of work are well worth the time you invest.
If you’re interested in going green in your backyard, the beginning of the season (right now!) is a great time to investigate organic lawncare options. There are many fertilizers and nutrients available that do the job well but aren’t harmful to other plants or animals and don’t pollute our local waterways. Runoff from residential developments and yard chemicals are major contributors to the degraded condition of the Barnegat Bay. Yes, the green lawn care products will cost you a little more today but like any good investment, they will pay dividends for many years to come.
If all this still sounds like more than you want to do, we understand. It may be to time to give us a call!
