Water Your Lawn  – May Garden and Lawn Care Tips

We hope you are having a great May.  Spring is in full bloom.   Lawn chairs and deck furniture are cleaned and placed in their sun soaking spot.  Warmer days means outdoor picnics and strolls in the park.   Our Spring cleaning rituals remind us that summer is on its way.   We hope you are enjoying the sun and outdoors and the special people in your lives.

May is the month we celebrate mothers and hope you and a great time loving the special ladies in your life.As someone put it “honouring our women is year round joy!”     We thought we would give you some ideas for May or anytime of the year.

  • 10 COOL DIY Indoor “Garden” Gifts Do a Yard Sale for the Cure
One of our clients has made it a tradition in May to honour her mother and other women by raising awareness about Breast Cancer.  The Yard Sale for the Cure is begins on May 24th.  What a great idea to mix spring cleaning, garage sales, and charity altogether!    

Words are powerful and precious.  Write or say something nice.   One of our friends gifted his wife with a compiled book of words of appreciation from all her friends.     We asked Frances from our office write something for us for our Mother’s Day blog.  We thought we would share it.  She writes,  “I love my mama because she is sweet, funny and selfless.  She is always putting other people ahead of herself (the way that moms do) but never fails to stay positive and always has the biggest smile on her face every time she sees me.  I would not trade that for the world! I love you mama!”
