In the Weeds
Your weed may be your neighbor’s idea of a wild flower, but in short, a weed is a plant that is unplanned for the garden, that grows vigorously and can choke other plants.

 

Mighty Mulch
A thick layer of biodegradable mulch improves the garden by holding in moisture and reducing weeds. It also improves the soil and makes the garden more attractive. Every gardener should take mulching seriously.

 

Safe Lawn, Safe Family
There is no reason to ignore or abandon the green, grassy patch that connects house to sidewalk, driveway to house, and house to garden. We simply need to be mindful of the damage we do when we dump chemicals, both pesticides and fertilizers, on the grass. There are better ways to take care of our lawns.

 

Try Composting

Compost is decomposed organic matter that has been allowed to reach a rich, dark state so that it can be added to soil to improve and enrich it. Good compost helps keep the soil balanced and aerated, encourages earthworm activity, loosens clay soil and lets sandy soil hold water.


 

To Mulch in the Autumn
All gardens benefit from mulch. Chances are you mulched in the spring, but it's time to do so again to get the garden ready to face the cooler months to come.
