Tahoe Gardening Inspiration and Solutions
Summer is coming, and that means grass cutting, weed pulling, and garden building during the growing months. Are you new to the area and wondering about easy care designs for Tahoe gardens? Perhaps you’re considering buying here? (Call me!) In Placer County the USDA Plant Hardiness Zones run almost the entire range of options! As a result, it’s important for you to know our area’s predominant type of gardening.
‘Alpine Gardening’ is a style that takes into consideration the altitude and geography around Lake Tahoe. The advantage of a good alpine garden is that once established, the garden and lawn is fairly low maintenance and stays healthy. For a great source of inspiration, visit the Pinterest page that focuses on this kind of gardening. There’s also another Pinterest page with photos of Lake Tahoe gardens.
Once inspired, each homeowner has to decide if they want to spend the time creating an outdoor environment, or get someone else to do the work while enjoying the warm summer days. Do you prefer to dig in the dirt, or write the bills for someone else to have that privilege? For the home gardener at heart, visit the Villager Nursery. You’ll find all the plants and knowledge you need to create your outdoor paradise. The active outdoor enthusiast can get the home gardening done by a number of experienced companies and individuals- the Village Nursery also offers landscaping services. In addition, take a look at our previous blog article listing North Lake Tahoe landscaping and grass cutting companies.
