Maintaining an Urban Landscape: Challenges and Solutions

This week, The Garden Continuum's Installation Staff was down in Providence, RI working on a commercial property. TGC designed and installed the landscape which includes dozens of shrubs and trees, multiple walkways and sitting areas, and large perennial and annual beds. Since this property houses many businesses and hundreds of cars and people, we are presented with a variety of landscape challenges. Below, we highlight a few of the challenges we face when maintaining a landscape in an urban environment. Perhaps you face some of these challenges on your own property. If you are interested in seeing more images of the property, check them out below the video.

Landscape Field Videos: How to Fertilize Annuals

How to Fertilize Annuals

Summer annuals have a short growing season in New England so it's important to fertilize regularly in order to get the best performance from your investment. This week, The Garden Continuum's Fine Gardening Division demonstrates how to fertilize annuals. We use organic fertilizers that allow us to feed our annuals more frequently because they have less Nitrogen (N), phosphorous (P) and potassium (K). This is better for the environment because there is less NPK waste and therefore little to no fertilizer runoff affecting the environment.  In other words, we provide the plants with what they need instead of wasting fertilizer that they will never utilize.
