May is the month to do everything! Everything that we have talked about up until this point has prepared you for this month. May is the month where spring is ending and summer is beginning!
More Mulch! (or Rock)
May is the time for more mulch or rock! If you already have rock down, you might want to fill in some low spots. If you have mulch, it is the right time of year to replace it!
Benefits to Replacing or Adding
-Plants are insulated in winter
-Keeps roots cool in summer
-Looks clean and neat

Low Maintenance Ideas
Are you tired of trimming your plants all of the time? Are you tired of replacing mulch every single year? Here are some low maintenance ideas that will still make your landscaping look beautiful.
Having rock in your landscape beds rather than mulch can be very beneficial and save you a lot of money. Many people think that rock does not have the same benefits as mulch does. When in reality, rock and mulch are one in the same. Rock can also seem expensive at first but in reality, rock is cheaper because you will never have to replace it.

Checking Your Watering Equipment
Checking your watering system is essential after winter. Cracked nobs, seals, and leaks will not only be a problem for your plants but will also be a problem for your water bill.
