The Scent is in the Air!

It seems that most landscapes and gardens are measured in terms of visual appeal. Sight may be the most important sense used to assess a garden; but in reality, how a garden interacts with each of our senses is its true measure of success. This makes the sense of smell one of the most important intangibles when establishing a garden.

Large Tree Planting in downtown Columbus

(PICTURE INCLUDED BELOW) GreenScapes crews planted a 7.5" caliper Scarlet Oak for a new apartment complex being constructed in downtown Columbus. The process is always super intensive when dealing with plant material of this size. Extra care must be taken to avoid damaging the tree canopy and trunk. However, at the same time you are maneuvering a very heavy tree with large machinery, such as the lift you see in the pictures. It was something to watch, and our experienced employees handled the process very well!

Food for Thought…and Healthy Plants

As the ground warms up during the spring and summer, plants and grasses stretch their roots further into the soil to search for additional nutrients.  If they can’t find all of the nutrients they need, their growth becomes stunted. You can assure that your plants receive vital nutrients by providing fertilizer.  Fertilizer can give your plants the extra boost they need as they grow and expand and help them thrive in the hot summer days to come.  Fertilizing several times a year also helps combat the stresses of nature on urban and suburban landscapes.

A Gardener’s New Year’s Resolutions

First, let me be clear – I don’t make New Year resolutions! Quite a few years ago I realized going through that annual exercise was a futile attempt to change overnight – something that isn’t all that realistic for me. I vowed to lose 10 pounds more often than I care to remember; it was no easier in January than in the other 11 months of the year!
