Progreen always marks the beginning of the season for me, and gets me excited for opportunities to inspire you and to share ways to spend time in the beautiful outdoors.

This outdoor fireplace and pizza oven comes already assembled from Belgard, or can be custom made to your specifications.

Ideas to incorporate might be a courtyard with pavers, a seating wall, or a water feature.

Then there are the trendy colors…Tangerine Tango.  This Yucca is not only beautiful, it is drought tolerant and attracts the hummingbirds to your garden.

Native plants are the in thing, our Gumbo Lily or Tufted Evening Primrose is a Colorado native that blooms in the evening, is scented and attracts the Sphinx Moth which flies so fast it looks like a hummingbird.  Evening entertainment in the back  yard, along with some wine and cheese?

We must take responsibility in caring for the land and creatures, so organic choices are a must.  (much better for our health too!) Ask for them at your local nursery.

And if you are worried about not having enough space to garden, never fear, they come in miniature too.  Something for everyone and aren’t they so cute!

Accessories galore

Personally, I love interesting pots and succulents, so this is one of my favorites.

So, what are you waiting for?  Start planning now, start small, take one idea and run with it. Implement, take notes and observe.  Take time to smell the flowers and enjoy the fresh air.  And of course if you need help, you know where to find me.  Don’t worry – Plant happy
