Make sure your plants are getting the water they need this summer with our tips.
Summer Watering Guide
The intense summer heat has abated for now but providing your plants with enough water should still be your top priority. The number one reason we give our customers with failing plants this time of year is a lack of water.

Appropriate watering is extremely important to the health and beauty of your plants, especially in the heat of summer. At Estabrook's, we recommend deep waterings 2-3 times a week even when it rains . Although it might appear that your plants are getting plenty of water even in heavy rain storms, most plants will shed rainfall like an umbrella, leaving the root system dry.

Follow these tips to make sure your plants are getting the water they need...
Kerry's Tips of the Week
Ho-Hum Today, Dazzling Tomorrow!
It is never too late, or the wrong time of the year, to tackle a garden’s makeover. Perhaps your foundation beds are overgrown, or your gardens are far too much maintenance, or the landscape lacks waves of season after season color. Maybe you want to attract more birds and butterflies or water less. An attractive, year-round landscape that improves property value without demanding excessive maintenance is a smart decision anytime.

Summer is a great time to have a garden and landscape consultation . This is typically when gardens are at their peak and should be looking their best. If not, well, that is another reason for an onsite consultation. After a consultation, you will be armed with a plan of action and a superstar plant list.

For further inspiration, check out these before and after pictures of gardens that I reworked for happy homeowners:
