More Time to Enjoy Life without Lawn Care Management

by Kelly Dowell on March 10, 2014
Find me on:

"I love gardening but with 2 busy, teenage girls and a husband with an aversion to yard work, I have to keep it simple. Dowco has been keeping my lawn care free for over 15 years so I can do what I love best.

In the summer, I love to use heat loving and mildew resistant zinnias. Low and bushy growing "Star Gold Zinnias" hold up well through the first frost. Flanking the front door I prefer "Magellan Yellow Zinnias" they grow full and tall (12") and last through the first frost as well.

After the first frost I replace the Zinnias with Tulip bulbs with Pansies on top so I will be ready for spring!

To dress up my homes plain facade, I added window boxes. In the spring, I plant them with all with heat loving plants such as Angelonia, trailing Verbena, Lantana, Vinca, Purslane, and Calibrachoa. In the fall, I use a burlap drape with kale, any fall colored plants filled in with gourds and pumpkins. I also tie a bunch of Indian corn with fall colored ribbon in the front of each box. After Thanksgiving, I fill the boxes with fresh evergreen and pine boughs finished with a red bow.
