Planning is the key to any great landscape. Look around your yard and decide now if you would like to incorporate fruits and vegetables into your landscape. Perhaps more perennials or a kitchen garden near your patio or door. More lawn or less lawn? A deck or patio for entertaining? More trees? Bushes, maybe a hedge for privacy?
Container gardening offers a variety of choices to the home gardener. Maybe you are a summer traveller and are looking for low maintenance options. Whatever choice you make, April is the month to make decisions and start working outdoors. Put the work in early so the summer months can be enjoyed days of gardening, socializing or soaking up the sun.
