Turning your landscape into an ideal outdoor living space may seem like a rather daunting task at first, but it can be accomplished with the perfect combination of strategic brainstorming and creative conceptualizing.
Property owners know all too well the constant need to maintain it through the seasons, no matter the size, location, or nuances of the landscape. With rare exception, one of the most integral components in this process is weekly lawn care.
As summer gets underway and brings with it a wave of warmer weather, you may find some portions of your landscape are in need of a mid-season refresh. By replenishing planters and gaps in garden beds with a selection of annuals, you can easily provide an added pop of color destined to flourish through the months of July and August.
Annual flowers require a little TLC to remain lush and vibrant throughout the season. From deadheading and pinching to fertilizing and watering, giving these beautiful blossoms a bit of ongoing attention can go a long way toward ensuring continual color in your garden or landscape.
As warmer weather beckons, those amateur gardeners among us may be left pondering the age-old question: What’s the difference between an annual and a perennial, again?
In short, annuals blossom all season long, then fall fallow with the frost, and cease to bloom again; whereas perennials live to flourish the following season, and for several thereafter, so long as they are properly cultivated and cared for.
Annuals serve as a great addition to any property, no matter whether your home is sun-drenched or lightly dappled by morning light. Customizing your plant selection is key to ensuring that the flowers you choose will flourish for the duration of the season.
