Hanging Baskets

3rd Annual Mother’s Day Celebration, a hit!

Thank you to all who came out and made our Mother’s Day Celebrate such a wonderful success! The event was on Saturday, May 12th at our Water Garden Center.

We have a handful of hanging baskets left. They are absolutely beautiful ten inch baskets for $20. Stop by and get one before they are all gone!

If you didn’t make it to the event on Saturday, mark your calendar for next year on the Saturday before Mother’s Day

One of the additions to this years event was a chili cook-off. It was quite a hit! We had 12 different chilis for our guests to taste, vote on and then help themselves to a bowl full.

A huge thank you to all of our Chili Cookers! They were greatly enjoyed by all our guests!
Congratulations to our winners. The prizes for the top three chilis were gift certificates to Creative Visions Landscapes and Water Garden Center for $75, $50, and $25.

May Landscaping Tips

May is a great time for planting.  We had a long winter this year and there is nothing better than to get this spring started with some splashes of color in your yard.  Hanging baskets are a great way to add color above ground level.

  • Divide perennials
  • Plant new perennials
  • Plants annuals
  • Cut back any mums that returned from last year by half
