We are often asked the question, "What should I do to keep my landscaping looking fresh?"
In this article, we will discuss some tips to maintaining your landscaping... after all you invested in it, it should look great every year!
1. Know your plant materials!
For the most part, the plant materials we are use for residential projects come from Eagle Lake Nurseries. They offer extensive information for each plant on their website, so if you don't want to spend the money on a professional maintenance crew, all of the plant information is available to you!
2. Different plants need to be maintained in different seasons!
Again, all of this information is available at Eagle Lake Nurseries website, but be aware that not all plants need attention at the same time. A large majority of plants need attention throughout the spring and summer, and a good clean up in the fall, but species vary. Being aware of how to take care of your plants can make them last longer and look healthier!
3. Have the right tools!
Luckily, gardening tools are very affordable and can be found at your local Lowe's! Having the proper tools can turn pruning or weeding into a shorter and more enjoyable project. No one wants to waste 10 minutes a shrub trying to prune the dead twigs back, get the right equipment!!
