Considerations when creating your outdoor space include:

  • Site preparation
  • Plant Selection by hardiness zone
  • Planting season
  • Spacing in the landscape
  • Planting depths
  • Watering habits
  • Staking, protecting, and mulching

These are aspects of integrated pest management and a great way to ensure the growth and longevity of your investment.
