With all the erratic weather we have had here in Atlanta, it’s hard to know what to do in your yard.

Here are a few suggestions:

You can prune your spring blooming shrubs such as:

Azaleas
Viburnums
Camellias
Rhododendrons
Mountain Laurels
Forsythias

You can also deadhead your shrubs that bloomed early due to the warm weather like Gardenias and Roses.

Also deadhead all your perennials that have bloomed out of season. It will clean up your garden and you may get some late season blooms to boot.

With the long days of summer coming, do you need extra help around your yard?  We offer personal gardening services including hand pruning of shrubs (not shearing!), weeding and annual bed/container maintenance.  We can also keep a look out for any pest problems that need to be addressed.  We will be happy to come by, evaluate your needs and make a plan for your landscape.  Keep us in mind!
