Get your yard into tip-top shape!

Now that spring is officially here all of our yards are starting to look more and more beautiful with all of the flowers and plants coming back to life after a long winter. Does your yard still need a little work? Here are a couple of tips to help you get your yard into tip top shape!


Flowers always make a home seem more welcoming. Adorn your entrance with assorted annuals and perennials to keep color year long. Petunia, Snapdragon, Lily-of-the-Nile, and 'Gertrude Jekyl' roses are great additions.


If you have a small space between your house and the street, try putting a low fence in front. It gives the illusion that your house is farther from the street than it really is, and it also makes for a great space for planting flowers and vines.


By carefully sculpting the landscape and choosing the right plants and materials, you can hide your unattractive driveway. Start by creating a slightly raised island of lawn in the center of the drive. Then, add a low boxwood hedge toward the back of the island with roses, annuals, and perennials rising above the hedge in the front. 


Add bark – bark is great at covering our yards imperfections and it will help fill in any empty spaces.
