Think Like a Landscaper

Lawn & Yard Care

By Marty Ross

Landscapers make their living by planting and maintaining beautiful gardens. It’s their job to make sure that trees are planted properly, shrubs are pruned at the right time and flowerbeds flourish over a long season. Busy landscapers know that a little extra attention at planting time helps new plants thrive, and they are keenly aware of the benefits of regular maintenance.

To give your own garden some professional polish, think like a landscaper. A few tips from the pros will help you take good care of your garden and save you time and trouble.





Landscaping crews are efficiency experts. When you spot a crew in your neighborhood, watch them. If a good idea works for them, you can be sure it will work for you and your yard, too.
