Avoid using troublesome plants

Fall and winter are the best times of the year to install new plant material. Though the weather is cold, the roots continue to grow.

Why should you get your furnace tuned-up?

The perfect weather is finally here after a long and hot summer. As we switch off the air-conditioner and enjoy the cooler temperatures, a furnace tune-up is the last thing on our minds. 

Put the right plant in the right place

The fall and winter months are the best time of the year to plant trees and shrubs. They will have a greater chance of survival after being planted because the weather is cooler, allowing the roots, which are insulated from the cold by the soil, to continue to grow. This results in a strong, healthy root system.
