Spring Time!

That time is almost here! What time... Spring time! Everyone will be back outside running around and catching some rays - which I cannot wait for. One thing to keep in mind is your yard will be noticed more once the weather turns nice with everyone hanging out outside and people will not want to look at the old 2012 landscape that took a beating during the cold winter. Make sure to call your local Vienna Landscapers earlier rather than later to ensure your yard will be looking fresh and ready to kick off another Spring!

Glad you Stayed

Glad you stayed to see more of our mind blowing blog. Spring is here. Got that? That means you better get planting. Stop goofing off, listening to Rock N Roll music. Spring is when new plants grow and that's a fact, Jack. What are you doing about it. My suggestion? Put down the Nintendos and prep your soil.

"But I don't know how to prep soil" you might say. That's why you've got me here. I'm your guide. I'm your Mr. Miyagi. Think of the soil as Johnny from the Cobra Kai. No, think of the soil as Dutch from the Cobra Kai. You're gonna win the tourney against soil with my help. But you won't have to do a crane kick. And you'll win the tourney against Dutch, instead of Johnny. Wait, I was right the first, time, think of the soil as Johnny from the Cobra Kai, but without the respect that he gives Daniel-san after the tournament, and thus no redemption.

So the first thing we're going to do is paint the fence. Not literally. You don't have to paint the fence of your garden. First, we rake up any debris from the garden. Any dead annuals should be pulled up along with fresh, young weeds.  Then check the pH of the soil. You can get pH tester kits at your local store. Most plants prefer a pH in the range of 6.5 to 7.0. The best way to adjust pH is to add compost. Once done adjusting the pH, paint the fence.
