Attracting Pollinators and Not Deer
Make your landscape inviting and sustaining to pollinators and beneficial insects so your flowering plants and vegetables will thrive, rewarding you with optimal blooms and produce. Our experts at Gerbert & Sons will create a plan and install the most appropriate species for your property, especially native plantings and perennial options, to attract butterflies, bees, and hummingbirds to provide your gardens with vital sources for pollination. With our organic approach to landscape care, no destructive pesticides are used that would threaten the health of these valuable pollinators. Spring is also a good time to consider adding deer-resistant plantings to your property to discourage them from feasting on your gardens. While there are no options that make your yard completely deer-proof, we can recommend many species that deer do not enjoy and will deter them naturally.
Caring for Perennials and Roses
Spring provides the perfect time to divide and replant certain varieties of perennials, giving them the entire growing season to recover and become well-established before the cold weather moves back in. We also turn our attention at this time of year to the special care of your roses, inspecting for disease and insect pests, which we organically amend with fertilizers or sprays. Pruning may be indicated to insure their continued health and overall beauty and with this extra care taken now you’ll be rewarded with glorious roses throughout the season.
