Gardening Tip of the Day

  • Tired of your yard being used as a shortcut? Had enough of deer and neighborhood pets inviting themselves into your garden? Plants with prickly leaves or thorns are very useful in the landscape as barrier plants. Barberry, pyracantha, holly, yucca, cotoneaster, juniper, mahonia, and landscape roses are both ornamental and good deterrents. Planted as hedges at the perimeter of the property, they discourage anyone or anything from wandering into your yard.
