Plant Smarter, Not Harder



No matter what you do in life, it’s always good to know how to work smarter, not harder. Gardening is no exception, and with these smart planting tips, you can enjoy a beautiful garden without the pain of overworking.

  1. Choose native plants. A native plant is one that occurs naturally in a particular region or habitat without human introduction. Growing them means less work since they have adapted to the area where they grow.
  2. Look for low-maintenance perennials. Next to native plants, low-maintenance perennials are one of the smartest additions to your garden. Beauties like black-eyed Susan, sedum, purple coneflower, daylily, Hosta, and peonies are among the top easycare perennials for any garden.
  3. Plant bulbs in the fall for no-work spring color. Welcome spring with color pops throughout your garden using bulbs. The best bulbs are those that are perennial, bringing you beautiful color year after year. Once you have planted your bulbs in the fall, you need only sit back and wait their showcase of color come spring. Choose from a variety of fall bulbs like tulips, hyacinths, crocus, daffodils, and more.
