Wind chimes complete your landscape

 

Landscape is more than just how your yard looks. The best landscape plans incorporate elements of sound such as water features and chimes. For several years we have carried the Corinthian Bells wind chimes at Main Street Lawn and Garden. We have them in our own backyard. There is nothing more relaxing than sitting in the yard listening to the clear, soothing tones of these unique wind chimes. They provide the perfect finishing touch to your landscape.

Corinthian Bells are made in the USA of heavy powder coated aluminum. Each tube is hand tuned for the proper tone. Cording and strikers are made of heavy duty weather resistant materials. The result is a calming sound that resonates throughout your yard.

Corinthian Bells have a 5 year warranty and will give you many years of pleasure. There are many options based on sound, design and price point. They make perfect gifts. Visit us today to hear for yourself.

Happy New Year

We hope everyone had a wonderful holiday! Now that the Christmas decorations are put away and the celebrations are over it’s time to concentrate on getting prepared for spring planting and yard work. In zones 7 and 8 January is a great time to put out an extra layer (at least 2 inches) of mulch or pine needles around shrubs like azaleas, hollies, camellias and boxwood especially with the extreme cold weather we have experienced lately. We recommend a finely shredded variety.

Before you put away your mower for the winter you might want to mow and mulch your lawn one last time to get up the last of the late fall leaves. Mulching enriches the soil and provides nutrients for the roots of your grass. Don’t forget to winterize your mower and power tools before you put them away for the winter. Make sure to use a fuel stabilizer and run it through the engine before you let your equipment sit in the shed or garage. This will help you to avoid costly repairs in the spring.

Of course we can not forget our feathered friends at this time of year when food and water are not readily available. Our backyard birds prefer Nyjer seed, sunflower seeds and white proso millet at this time of year. A small shallow container of fresh water placed close to the feeders will ensure that they water. Refresh the container with warm water if it freezes.

No need to worry, Main Street Lawn and Garden is prepared for the worst winter weather. We have sleds, shovels and ice melt. Grab your favorite warm beverage and sit down to make your list of plantings for the coming season. Spring will be here before you know it.
