Let’s be honest. Have you let things go around the yard lately? Too busy with holiday revelry to tend the winter garden? We’re not judging you. Nope, your friends at Buzz are here to help. January is the perfect time to get moving on that yard you’ve always wanted. This week we’ll consider a few ways to bring your yard up to snuff for 2019.
A shipshape fence
What can we say? At Buzz, we’re all about fences. So we encourage you to waste no time in getting out there to take a look at yours. Is it dirty? Do you need to scrape off a little moss or hose it down? More seriously, do you see any rot? It might be time to repair a few panels or fix a saggy gate. If you’re not a DIY type, give us a call and we’ll be happy to fix sags and subpar slats.
Plan your plantings
January can be grim. But spring is just around the corner, and with it, flowers! Leaves! Greenery! According to the Dallas County Master Gardeners website, it’s not too late for Texans to plant hyacinth and tulip bulbs. You can also plant roses and fruit and nut trees. Like to eat what you sow? Swiss chard, spinach and snap peas can also go in the ground in January. Do you live in one of those non-Texas states up north that’s frozen solid until late spring? We’re sorry.
That special feature
Many of us have hobbies, interests, and passions that we procrastinate because life gets in the way. This could be the year to finally manifest a corner of your yard for that special activity. Maybe you’re the sporty type who dreams of a basketball court or a horseshoe pit. Devoted pet owners might want to add a dog run, a catio or a porthole in their fence so Fido can have a better view. Barbecue pit? Stone patio? A reading area surrounded by flowers? Your friends at Buzz can help with many of these backyard dreams. Give us a call today.
