Flowers in field

Most people don’t think twice about plucking a pretty flower or breaking off a tree branch. That is because we know that plants don’t have a brain or a nervous system like humans do. However, plants can react to outside elements and protect themselves to survive.

Humans have five senses – taste, touch, smell, hear and sight that they use to interact with the world around them. If we taste something sour, you can tell from our facial reactions, or if the temperature in a room is cold, we will cover ourselves with a jacket.

Rabbit

While we love them at Easter time and their fluffy cotton ball tails can be adorable, we don’t love them in our gardens and yards! Rabbits lose a little cuteness when they’re munching down on all of your beautiful plants that you cared so well for. If your yard is prone to the little creatures, here are some tips to safely and humanely keep rabbits out of your yard.

spider mite

What’s worse than seeing the landscape, that you worked so hard on and cared so well for, be attacked by mites and fungi? Although there are many elements of nature that could be harmful to plants, we tracked down some of the most common pests that are prevalent in early spring in Colorado. Spider mites, Clover mites, and Snow mold can all be a nuisance for your garden but there are ways they can be treated.

Please, excuse your excuses when it comes to gardening. Just because you don’t have the magical “green thumb” doesn’t mean that you can’t cultivate a flourishing garden. You simply need to cater to your audience.

In this case, we are not referring to Colorado’s rapidly growing population as the main target audience. Rather, you will need to be mindful of the steadfast qualities of the Colorado landscape that have been present for centuries on end. Primarily, this means being mindful of the alkaline soil and the quickly changing weather patterns.
