Creating a Lush Garden with Plants

A variety of plants, trees, and flowers are essential to any completed landscape. When you are selecting plants for your home, it is important to establish your climate, type of sod, and the amount of shade the area receives. This information will help you find plants that will thrive under those conditions in the lawn centre.

Tips for Adding Plants to Your Home

•  Check your Hardiness Zone and pick plants that thrive in that area
•  Add plants of different heights, colours, and textures for added visual appeal
•  Add an irrigation system to keep the plants adequately watered
•  Use soil enhancers and mulch to add nutrients to the soil
•  Consider growing herbs that can be used in the kitchen
•  Plant at least one plant that looks great in each season for all-year enjoyment

Watering and Irrigating the Home

Irrigation systems are by far the most convenient way to deliver water to your flower beds and yard. When that isn’t an option, portable sprinklers make a suitable alternative. Take careful measurements of your yard to ensure the sprinkler you purchase will provide adequate reach.

If you have high hanging plants or difficult areas to reach, there’s nothing quite like a hose with a spray nozzle or a good, old-fashioned watering can. As you water, consider adding a plant food to replace nutrients that may not be found in the garden soil. If you want to feed your plants the natural way, take up composting and turn your kitchen rubbish into fertilizer for your garden.

Preserve the Yard with Proper Weed and Pest Control

The right pest control products can keep your plants, herbs, and vegetables nice and healthy throughout the growing system. Choosing the right weed control and pest control option is all about know what common bugs and weeds are found in your area and treating them with a product that is gentle on plants but tough on pests and weeds.

When you shop the incredible selection at the lawn and garden centre, you’re sure to discover the items you need to transform the look of your landscape and make it the most attractive home on the block.
