Tip of the Week: Get Your Yard Party-Ready!

Now that the weather is warmer and the pollen season is winding down, we all look forward to outdoor entertaining.  But how do you get your yard to go from drab to fab for your festivities? has some excellent suggestions to accomplish just that.  Need instant color?  Purchase packs of annuals, set them in your flowerbed and mulch or pinestraw directly around the container.  Once your party is over, you can pot or plant them properly.  Guests using your rear or side entrance?  Clean it up with fresh pea gravel around the stoop and add a small simple seating area to make it more inviting.  No room for chairs or a bench?  How about a good size container with trailing ivy and some bright annuals.  I also suggest  They provide a project calculator and other tools to keep you on track. Check out these ideas and more before you hit the nursery and home improvement center!
