If you live in a place that has clay soil and you are struggling to keep your plants alive, all is not lost. You can have a lush and beautiful landscape. You just have to know how to grow plants in clay soil and which plants thrive in this type of dirt.
There is a time and a place where slugs and snails serve a good purpose. Inside your garden or flower bed is not one of them. So how do you get rid of slugs and snails? Fortunately, there is a very simple and safe way to deal with these slimy nighttime snackers.
Trying to landscape in an area where the soil is constantly wet can be a struggle to get right. The wrong plants won’t survive the lack of oxygen and will most often succumb to root rot. Luckily, there are many shrubs, trees, and plants that like wet soil.
I noticed that there seem to be a lot of articles out there to educate people on which plants are resistant to deer, but not so much on telling which plants deer love to eat, or what to avoid if that is not your intention. (As in, the deer will eat these to the ground). So, I decided that it is time to put the warning out there.
Each year, I look forward to the return of sunshine and warmer temps. Around our house, we are very big, backyard, BBQing people and have expanded our living space into the outdoors. Because we spend so much time outside, I wanted to share some of my favorite must-haves for outdoor entertaining. These items will help you make your outdoor living space as enjoyable as your indoors!
