Plant drought resistant plants – Cactus and flora don’t have to be boring or rough looking/feeling. There are many options like “Cousin It”  “Calliandra” “Lavender” and “Rosemary” to bring texture and fragrance without the need to fertilize.

Pressure Wash  – Clean the outside walls, driveway, patio, and walkways around your home getting rid of pet, dirt, and mildew buildup.

Gutters – Clean out all gutters. With the flowers come the showers, avoid debris blockage by cleaning out the downspouts.

Tip of the Week:

  • Aluminum foil can be used as a mulch for light-loving plants in shady areas, to bounce more light onto plants. Foil can be placed under plants- held down by rocks on corners and/or placed up against wall or fence for additional light.
