Tennessee Home Garden & Design
Make sure you watch our new show - Tennessee Home Garden & Design on Maury County Now.
The show comes out every two weeks and airs on CPWS channel 13, and is also on Youtube. Our first episode we discussed prepping your landscape beds for spring, how to trim your shrubs, edge your landscape beds, apply pre-emerigent herbicide and putting down mulch. The second episode we highlighted Victory Landscape Supply and discussed what all supplies they carry for every wish a landscape could want. The third episode we were with OUTSIDERS Property Management and discussed getting your lawn ready for Spring - picking the right spreader, applying a weed and feed product, aerating your yard with a core aerator and finally applying fertilizer.
If you want curb appeal, why not add LED landscape lighting? Your landscape will pop like never before! Most people think LED is expensive, but it isn't. To run a 40 fixture system on incandescent bulbs for a year is around $400.00, while LED is only $86.00...so why not change?
LED does cost more initially than incandescent, but LED has a 10-15 year warranty, so you save the extra money!
If you already have a landscape lighting system installed in your landscape, we can retrofit it to LED. Landscape lighting will add curb appeal, security, and ambience to your landscape.
Call us today and we will bring new life to your landscape at night!
Prep Your Beds For Spring!
When prepping your beds for Spring, first you need to trim your shrubs. When you trim, take no more than 1/3 off of the shrubs and you only need to trim in fall through spring.
Next you should put an edge down, either by using a bed-edger or a shovel. This helps define the beds and keeps the mulch in place.
If you have weeds, spray them with a weed killer. Then we recommend installing landscaping fabric, or we have found used newspaper works just as well.
When mulching new beds, you need four inches of mulch, however when remulching you only need two-three inches. We prefer hardwood mulches (brown, black and pine bark), but there are gravels and pine straw, so it is your choice! Use what you like, not what someone else chooses for you.
If you have any landscaping questions email us or give us a call and we will be glad to help you out.
