When we think of lawn pests, we often think of unwanted visitors like deer, raccoons, and rabbits, who have an uncanny way of sneaking in and munching away on our landscapes, leaving only nubs, missing, and misshapen plants as evidence that they’ve been there.

These days, thankfully, we’ve gotten more scientific. We can do a whole lot more than water the grass and hope for the best. You […]

In recent years, a new method for aerating soil has emerged: liquid aeration. Liquid aeration has the same basic aim as manual aeration, but it uses a completely different […]


If you’ve ever been to a garden center or a nursery, then you will probably have come across the terms annual and perennial. They refer to the growth cycle of a plant and are useful in deciding where to place plants, when to plant them, and how to care for them.  But did you know […]
