When to re-pot? If your plants are requiring frequent watering and looking to start suffering, it is important to consider replanting them. If plants are not actively growing because their planters are too small or the soil too old, you will often see some signs of the plants not looking so healthy.

We sell lots of concrete and masonry waterproofers each year to help protect porous stone and concrete surfaces from snow and ice damage. However, the majority of products only last 1 season. They wear off quickly with frequent contact with car tires and through sunlight and natural elements. If using these products, you will typically need to reapply every 1-2 years to prevent damage to expensive concrete surfaces, such as your driveway or walkways.

For those that wish to seal concrete less frequently, you will be excited to know that we sell a longer-lasting alternative! Masonry Saver's heavy duty masonry water repellent lasts up to 5 years with just one application. This is perfect for th...

Early spring season weed control can be difficult because traditional weed controls are not as effective when temperatures are not so hot. This is because most weed control suppress and limit the growth of the plant and when temperatures are not extreme enough to cause the plant to die, many weeds may slow their growth but be just fine in the end. This can be very frustrating when you send an hour or so as well as $20 to spray your lawn, and see little to no results.

As we bounce around with high temperatures in the 50's and low 60's, consider using Bonide's Weed Beater ULTRA. This product is proven to work better against lawn weeds when temperatures are cool (down to 45 degrees F). The wee...

As the days are getting warmer and before we go setting up the patio furniture, the early spring is a great time to stain the deck before it is put to frequent use during the summer.

How often should I stain my deck? This depends on which product you choose, but typically stains need to be reapplied every 3 years. They slowly breakdown from foot traffic and UV light, so by staining your deck, you are not only providing beauty, you are making sure that the surface remains protected from the harsh sunlight, water, and chemicals that they are exposed to throughout the year.

What are the best stains to use? The best stain for your deck will depend on a couple factors: 1) the condition of your deck...
