It’s the time of the year we’ve all been waiting for. Warmer temperatures are upon us as well as the rebirth of all things lawn and garden. National Lawn and Garden Month is celebrated each year in April.

urban farmingGardens come in many shapes and sizes and can be adapted to fit your outdoor space. A small garden can yield an amazing amount of produce if properly planned. Flower gardens make a yard look beautiful and welcoming. Vegetable gardens give the added bonus of providing fresh vegetables for your table.

Now is the time to clean up your lawn and plant everything for your garden to get ready for summer. It’s important to get the mowing height right when you mow your lawn. Most lawns do well at 2” to 3”, but it’s a good idea to leave it a little longer during hot months. Leaving the grass clippings on your lawn recycles the plant nutrients back into the soil and is a great fertilizer.

Enjoy the weeks ahead as your celebrate Nat’l Lawn & Garden Month.
