Lantana camara 'Lucky'
Are you looking for a burst of annual color, but unsure about which route to pursue? It is not too late in the summer to add color without losing your investment. Rich-Way Landscape has just the solution.
A small number of Lantana, specifically the camara ‘Lucky’ variety, is a great way to add low groundcover to the front of beds without the worry of pruning, cutting back or dividing all summer. Lantana ‘Lucky’ comes in a multitude of colors, and we can find one that fits the color of your landscape palette seamlessly. These are not your typical lantanas that can reach heights of 3 feet tall. The ‘Lucky’ variety is propagated as a dwarf form without creating a dwarf flower.
Lime - Does My Yard Need It
Many of you may have heard of the process of liming your lawn, but may not be aware of how this process can benefit your lawn. Liming is a method of improving the efficiency of fertilizers applied to your lawn.
One of the indicators used to evaluate the health of your lawn is the soil pH. Soil pH is a measure of whether the soil is acidic or alkaline. The pH scale ranges from 1 to 14. Soil pH levels approaching 1 are very acidic whereas levels approaching 14 are very alkaline. A pH level of 7 indicates the soil is neither acidic nor alkaline and is often referred to as being neutral. Lawns prefer a slightly acidic soil pH in the range of 6 to 7. This is true of many shrubs, although certain acid-loving shrubs such as azaleas and camellias prefer a pH in the 5.0 to 5.5 range.
