It is easy to let up on our gardens and rest on our laurels. The temptation to rely on the work we have already done is in our nature. Nowhere is this truer, than in our landscapes. We cease to see the changes that are taking place daily.
So often we meet with people whose yards became overgrown with weeds and no longer reflected who they are or wanted to be. One of the most common oversights is leaving plants past their prime. Heathers (Calluna Vulgaris) and Lavender (Lavandula) both which have life spans that can be shortened to as few as seven years if not tended to properly. They are a gorgeous addition to many beautiful gardens but it is very common to see them without blooms and woody, knowing they will never regain their glory. Let the dying energy go and replant with new vibrant starts. It will benefit you and your landscape in more ways than you can imagine.
