Gardening & Lawn Care Tips — #phillipsre

gardeningSummer is on the way! This Saturday, June 21st,  is the summer solstice and the longest day of the year. With all this added daylight many people are tending to their gardens and lawns and spending more time outside. This article from MSN Real Estate has some great tips on how to care for your yard and some blunders to try and avoid. Keeping your yard simple and well maintained are the most important tips when it comes to yard care. With mowing, sometimes less is more. Instead of raking up all your grass clippings, experts recommend leaving the clippings on the lawn after you mow, they will decay naturally in a few days, returning nutrients to the soil in the process — which is a more environmentally friendly way to fertilize the lawn than dumping chemicals on it. If you are an avid gardener, you may also appreciate this article which has a great June Gardening Checklist – including what type of plants to plant, vegetables to grow and how to fertilize correctly.
