This is the time your backyard comes to life

The last week of June is when outdoor living really begins. Late June is when sprucing up the yard is inspired by Fourth of July parties and outdoor summer living. Nurseries are still filled with flowers to fill your container gardens and landscaped beds and it is not too late to start a vegetable garden or plant some incredible edibles such as blueberries, cucumbers, herbs, and potted patio tomatoes and peppers.
