Beautifying a City Corner

Living in a small city, I am often discouraged at the wasted green space in the medians throughout town. Having recently purchased my own home, with it came two fairly large medians. I quickly got tired of mowing, so Wildflowers were the perfect answer!

Why Wildflowers?

So you’ve been thinking about planting wildflowers for a while. Well, now is the time! Fall is a great time to plant wildflowers as it mimics the natural cycle
of flowers that drop their seed at the end of the growing season.

Tips on Commercial Seeding of Wildflowers

A question that comes up often when consulting with commercial clients is “What is the best way to sow a larger area?” In most cases they have some heavy duty equipment to work with, making the installation simple and cost effective for them. Some popular installation methods include hydroseeding, using a seed drill, or using a 3 point hitch spreader, all which are effective ways to sow a wildflower meadow.

Gardening for the Birds

Birds are one of the most fascinating creatures to watch and their chirps are often the first sign that spring has arrived. As a gardener, there are several ways to create an environment that will both attract and help our winged friends. By planting a garden that provides food and shelter for birds, you will create a beneficial, lively habitat in your own outdoor space.
