Container gardens bring early spring color to your home
Move on from the doldrums of winter to spring’s rebirth of life and color with the versatility and welcoming warmth of a custom container garden, designed and created by our own Amy E. Uva, Master Gardener. Now is the perfect time to add a new container garden or update a current one with seasonal species that favor the cooler temperatures of early spring. For our area, these include pansies, violas, petunias, chard, and kale, which can be easily switched out with warmer varieties as the heat of summer moves in. Highlight their beauty against a contrasting background of evergreens or a layer of bedding, bringing texture and structure to your planters, or consider adding a trellis for a boost of height. The containers themselves have become one of the latest trends, with gardeners looking to unique new planter options for one-of-a-kind creations that reflect your personal style and taste.

Consider adding drip irrigation to your planting beds
Whether you are creating a new landscape design or just bringing your plantings back after winter’s rest, drip irrigation is a great option for keeping your plant beds and gardens at their lushest and healthiest throughout the challenging days of the summer heat ahead. Flowers, vegetables, shrubs, and trees are well served by this efficient and easily controlled delivery of water, which provides moisture at the roots where it is needed most and reduces loss due to evaporation and wind. This advantage of drip irrigation allows it to be exempt from watering restrictions set in place by Aquarion Water Company. Installation of this flexible delivery system rarely disturbs existing plantings, and can be moved and adapted as your landscape evolves. Our professionals will monitor and adjust your system as needed to keep your property well-watered while conserving this precious resource.
