We Honor Mom and Memorial Day This Month
Summer heat is just around the corner. Add mulch now to your flower beds and trees to hold in moisture and nutrients and keep grasses and weeds away. Houston Plants and Garden World offers a wide variety of mulch to choose from including pine bark, cedar cypress, hardwood, black, and red colored mulch. Also available in bulk are black mulch, bedding mix, and native mulch.
Another great way to keep moisture where you want it and reduce the need to water this season is to add expanded shale to your flower beds. Expanded shale not only loosens tight clay soils but also absorbs water and slowly releases it over time, helping your plants stay hydrated and healthy in the Houston heat. Ask one of our nursery professionals how much expanded shale you’ll need for your garden.
What to do (and not do) for your lawn this month.
Now’s the time to set your watering schedule for the season. If you haven’t done it already, grab a helper and test all of your irrigation zones for broken or malfunctioning sprinkler heads.
Set your watering schedule for the early morning hours. To avoid destructive mold and disease, never water at night. For best results, water your lawn longer in each zone and do so every other day to encourage healthy root growth. Over time, you’ll use less water and get better results.
