How Much is Too Much Mulch?

How Much Mulch is Too Much?

Ever wonder if you’re killing your plants with mulch? I know, you think more is better; you’re keeping the weeds down or whatever. But are you putting down too much mulch?

And it’s plenty deep to keep the moisture in so you won’t … [Read more...]

Gardening To-Do’s for May

A Swath of Daffodils

Here’s a list of things to keep in mind as you putter around the yard: Prune spring-flowering shrubs such as Forsythia and Lilac right after flowering to improve shape and control growth.

Protect Your Flower Beds through the Winter

Leaf Mulch for Winter

Do you have bulbs or perennials in your flower beds? The best way to protect them from fluctuating temperatures is by mulching. Fluctuating temperatures can heave your plants and bulbs right out of the ground and damage or kill the plant. Three to four inches around trees and one to two inches in your flower beds is sufficient. If you mow and bag your leaves you get a great shredded/mulched mix … [Read more...]

Cement blocks are an excellent choice to put in the bed of your truck or in your trunk to add weight to improve traction so you can get around. Be sure to place them right on top of the rear axle. Putting them … [Read more...]
