Your land and gardens are patiently waiting for you underneath another Kansas City winter.
We have three great ideas for getting a jump on the spring of 2014 with some New Year’s gardening tips:
- First, be green. Begin composting this year. This takes your food scraps, vegetables, fresh fallen or dry leaves, grass clippings, sawdust, and shredded paper, and in the end, creates the finest organic fertilizer. Make sure everything is small so it won’t resist decomposition, and always avoid fish, meats, grease, and diary products, which will make your compost toxic. Use this to fertilize indigenous plants, which will resist most weeds, have lower transportation and fuel costs, are low-maintenance and require no chemical fertilizers or pesticides, and will acclimatize easily and have good longevity.
- Second, use the Rosehill Gardens Plant Guide to find out everything you need to know about anything growing.
- Third, hire a landscape maintenance professional for the hard work. For 100 years, Rosehill Gardens has beautified Kansas City. Let us do your trimming, mulching, pruning, sodding, weeding, and planting, and spend the rest of the time enjoying your yard, your family, and your life. It’s important to call early in the year, so don’t wait; our spring books up quickly.
