Landscaping a slope?

Hey guys looking for some advice. I have a hill in my backyard it goes the whole width of my my yard and is fairly steep maybe 55 degrees and its around 6 foot to 8 foot tall. It's south facing but gets shade from the house most of the day. It currently is over taken by weeds. It's in need of a brush hogging. But after that I dunno what to do with it. Should I put down weed paper and put p stone on it. Should I let some kind of ivy grow over the whole thing? Don't really want to mulch it because of it being such a large area and mulching every year may get pretty costly. But I am sick of having it look like a jungle. Also there are two large pines each spaced in about 1/3 on either side of the yard. So if anyone has any ideas for what I can do to make it look tame. Maybe I can even try to take some pictures. As for planting things just keep in mind I'm located in ct which sees a little harsher winter than the buckeye state. Thanks any ideas are appreciatedRick from CTSee More

Crabgrass -- The good , the bad and the ugly !

Crabgrass --- Given the drought that many of us have experienced throughout the months of July and the early part of August, Crabgrass may be the only green plant in your lawn right now! The good news --- it is so easy to prevent crabgrass ! Just apply a pre-emergent crabgrass control herbicide to you lawn in the Spring ( March or Early April ) and your crabrass worries for the summer are over! Crabgrass Control herbicides such as Barricade ( Prodiamine) and Dimension ( Dithiopyr) are included with fertilizer and sold at the garden centers in the Spring -- this is normally referred to as the "first step" in a 4-5 step fertilizer program for your lawn.The Bad News -- If you did not use a crabgrass pre-emergent herbicide this spring, I will almost guarantee that you have grabgrass in your lawn right now ! This may be the only green "grass like" plant in your lawn depending on how dormant your lawn went during the heat of July and early August !The good news .... There are some…See More

What Plant AM I?

What Plant AM I?I AM a deciduous shrub with an open-rounded habit that typically grows 6-12’ (infrequently to 20’) tall. It is common throughout the eastern United States, most frequently occurring in wet open areas, low woods, thickets, swamps, upland sink-hole ponds, river bottomland and stream/pond margins. I have a tiny, tubular, 5-lobed, fragrant white flowers appear in dense, spherical, long-stalked flower heads (to 1.5” diameter) in early to mid-summer. My flowers are projecting styles give the flower heads a distinctively pincushion-like appearance. I am very attractive to bees and butterflies. Flower heads mature into hard spherical ball-like fruits consisting of multiple tiny two-seeded nutlets. My fruiting heads usually persist throughout the winter. Ovate to elliptic, glossy bright green leaves (to 6”…See More

In the Garden Kitchen for Augsut 20,2016 " at AM1290,News 95.7FM, iHeart Radio Network

August 20, 2016 all day
The variety P. persica var. nucipersica (or var. nectarina), commonly called nectarine, has a smooth skin. It is on occasion referred to as a "shaved peach" or "fuzzless peach", due to its lack of fuzz or short hairs. Though fuzzy peaches and nectarines are regarded commercially as different fruits, with nectarines often erroneously believed to be a crossbreed between peaches and plums, or a "peach with a plum skin", nectarines belong to the same species as peaches. Several genetic studies have concluded nectarines are produced due to a recessive allele, whereas a fuzzy peach skin is dominantAs with peaches, nectarines can be white or yellow, and clingstone or freestone. On average, nectarines are slightly smaller and sweeter than peaches, but with much overlap. The lack of skin fuzz can make nectarine skins appear more reddish than those of peaches, contributing to the fruit's plum-like appearance. The lack of down on nectarines' skin also means their skin is more easily bruised than…See More

PICK THE PERFECT PLANT - LATE SUMMER WOODLAND COLOR

Mid August is here with the late summer gardening challenges. Many perennials are completing their bloom cycle and leaving us with browning foliage and spent flower heads. It may seem like it is time to cut things back and start putting the landscape to bed for the year. Not yet! There are many late summer and fall flowers just starting their show.There is a group of tough, showy native plants that warrant greater use in the landscape. The genus Eupatorium, now divided into many genera, is providing a great late summer display. Mist flower or Wild Ageratum, (Eupatorium) Conoclinum coelestinum, is blooming now in open woodland and edge environments. It will tolerate full sun, grow to about 2 ft. tall and produce heads of silky lavender blue flowers. The flower is very similar in appearance to the popular annual garden Ageratum. This a great pollinator plant attracting butterflies and bees for late season nectar.Eupatorium perfoliatum, Boneset, is a great plant to consider for those…See More

In the Garden Kitchen for August 13th, 2016 "Sweet Onions" at AM1290,News95.7FM, gardentalkblog.com and worldwide on the iHeart Radio Network.

August 13, 2016 all day
A sweet onion is a variety of onion that is not pungent. Their mildness is attributable to their low sulfur content and high water content when compared to other onion varieties.The Bermuda onion is a variety of sweet onion grown on the island of Bermuda. The seeds were initially imported from the Canary Islands before 1888. Onion export to the United States made up such a prominent feature of Bermudian life; they soon adopted the nickname onions. Sweet onions from Texas largely displaced the Bermuda variety.Imperial Valley Sweets come from the Imperial Valley in far southern California. This is one of the leading growing areas for sweet onions, although they are available only from late April through June. The Carzalia Sweet onion is a variety of sweet onion grown by Carzalia Valley Produce in Columbus, New Mexico. The Sunbrero (Texas) Sweet Onion is grown in Texas and distributed by Sweet Onion Trading Company, Melbourne, Florida.The Sweetie Sweet is a variety of sweet onion grown…See More
