Learn How To Pick Plants For Your Landscape

FALL IS AN AMAZING TIME TO PLANT

As we move into the cooler, wetter weather of the autumn season, I encourage you to think about planting new plants in your landscape. Maybe you have been dreaming of a new perennial garden, or contemplating adding some late season or winter interest plants, or maybe you are just eager to fill that one blank spot in your landscape before the snow flies.

Landscape Field Videos: How to Install Drip Edge

How to Install Drip Edge

This week TGC demonstrates how to install drip edge. Many times we encounter landscapes that have insufficient gutters, poor drainage and wood decay. Water can be difficult to manage and can cause significant damage to your home if not properly managed. Drip edge allows us to create an area where water can spill off the roof and drain with out splashing mud and water back up onto the side of the house. Drip edge is great to use where soil is too close to wood or sections of a roof do not have gutters. This is very common with bay or bump out windows. Check out the video below to see how it works.
