Trash Disposal

Spring Mulching Coming Soon…A Common Sense Safety Remindertulips
As we look forward to the emerging tulips and daffodils, our planting areas will soon be receiving a springtime topping of mulch.  There are many advantages to mulching, but there is also a safety suggestion that we all should be aware of.  If you have mulch in your planting areas, and also have landscape lighting, this would be the perfect time to do a walk–around inspection.  By adding this extra step and uncovering any decorative light fixtures that might be hidden by leaves, mulch, or debris, you will be taking an extra measure of safety by preventing the overheating, and a possibility of combustion, of this organic material.  Of course, the disposal of matches and cigarettes in combination with mulch are to be avoided as well.  By using common sense we can keep our plants happy and our homes safe!
