Tips for a beautiful and green garden

  • Pay attention to how sunlight passes through your yard before choosing a spot for your garden. Most edible plants, including many vegetables, herbs, and fruits, need at least 6 hours of sun in order to thrive.
  • Water your garden regularly. Mornings are the best time.
  • Mulch around trees and shrubs to prevent weeds – check out this video to learn more.
  • Attract pollinators to your garden by planting Black Eyed Susans, Salvia, Hyssop or Bergamot – check out this video to learn more.
  • Remove dying flowers and prune back any dead branches from shrubs
  • Keep garbage and recycling bins to the side of the house.
