All around Atlanta, home owners are putting on their gardening gloves, grabbing their shovels and planting gorgeous shrubbery and flowers. Even Azalea Homes’ communities, Edgeboro Park, Kenyon Farms and Stonecrest, are in full bloom.
To make your garden grow this year, the home builder suggests following these tips:
-Clear the lawn of winter debris such as leaves.
-Look for areas that need reseeding before mowing.
-Remove dead and damages branches from woody plants.
-Thin and trim summer blooming shrubs such as hydrangea and most roses.
-Clear the planting area of weeds and debris.
-Spread a four-inch layer of compost over soil.
-Plant perennials such as black-eyed Susan, forget-me-not and geraniums or annuals such as marigolds, pansies and petunias.
-Water as directed.
-Apply fertilizer when new growth appears.
-Clean bird feeders and baths with weak bleach solution (1/4 cup bleach: 2 gallons warm water). Rinse thoroughly, and fill with water. Remember to change water weekly.
If you follow these tips, no matter if you have a green thumb or not, your garden should turn out beautifully.
