Let It Grow, Let It Grow

Gardening isn’t easy, and trying to get your flowers to bloom makes the job even more difficult. Still, with enough love, care, and patience, you can grow the loveliest lawn you’ve ever seen. Do take note that caring for flowering plants is a little similar to taking care of a growing child. You need to invest a lot of time and effort. To make things easier, we’ll let you in on our five secrets to getting your flowers up and blooming.

First, you’d need to be mindful of how many times you’ll be watering your plants. Make sure that you’re giving them the moderate amount that they need to survive. Don’t let them wilt or dry up from lack of moisture and don’t drown their roots either. Only use enough water for the day.

Soil alone is good, but to make it better, applying mulch can help lots. Not only does it provide added moisture and nutrients to the soil, but it also helps your plants grow healthier.

Of course, let’s not forget our guest of honor: the sun. The sun provides energy for our plants, so make sure that our plants are rooted in great positions that receive enough sunlight. Remember that too much sun is still harmful, so watch out!

Last, make sure that you choose and use the soil that fits your plant best. Different plants require different types of soil. Your plant might thrive in clay soil while your other plants may not survive in the same soil, so make sure to do your research first before picking out specific types of plants. But remember that whatever type of soil you use, make sure that it’s dark and rich with nutrients.

Did we say five secrets? We meant 6! There’s a sixth secret, and it’s something that many lawn owners and gardeners overlook.


Wait, that’s it, you say? Well, people know it’s a necessary step, but they forget how important it is to pick the best fertilizer for your plants. We at Terra Garden Solutions provide a wide array of fertilizers, each suited to your different plants’ different needs. Whether your roses need some loving or your shrubs are looking a little pale this summer, you can count on our eco-friendly fertilizers to do the job for you.

Some fertilizers claim to be an all-around improver for all plants. Still, there are certain plants with specific needs, and most commercialized fertilizers also end up poisoning the soil over time due to their carbon content. We always make sure that our fertilizers are 101% nature-friendly and more effective for all plant types.

Seeing your flowers blooming healthily in your garden is as great as seeing your children growing up successfully and happy. So don’t wait too long and contact us for your garden fertilization needs today.

Because We’re All About That Grass

A common mistake is to think that trimming grass is enough maintenance, but even turf needs extra love and care!

Keeping your lawn’s grass healthy is crucial if you want to get the most out of your yard. Not only does it serve as a natural air regulator through the grass doing photosynthesis, but it will also provide you with a beautiful place to relax outside.

As long as lawn trends go, soft grass is becoming more and more into the times due to its carpet-like texture and appearance. Zoysia grass, a type of soft grass, is now commonly used by lawn owners within the Southwest Florida area.

And who wouldn’t be fascinated with Zoysia? With a grass of such beauty, it’s no wonder how trendy it is. But it is also not surprising that these kinds of grass require more maintenance. And that’s why we are here! Our unique Zoysia program treats as many possible issues that you might encounter when keeping your grass healthy all year round. Plus, our specialized products will ensure that your Zoysia turf will be the best in the neighborhood.

Trees: The Crowning Glory

Have you ever seen a poem as lovely as a tree? Well, our clients certainly have beautiful trees thanks to our services.

Trees are a staple of lawn design – they provide shade, regulate air going in and out of your backyard, and sometimes bear delicious fruits. But besides being helpful to us humans, trees also help provide a home for many animals, especially the birds and the bees.

Unfortunately, trees aren’t invincible; they too can get a little under the weather now and then. And the sad part is, it’s not always physically obvious unless you get a professional to look at it.

The only apparent signs of a sick tree can be seen through its leaves and its bark. If your tree used to produce dark greens that recently turned yellow, or if your tree’s bark suddenly developed large cracks within a month or less, it could be a sign of something else. Sudden insect infestations can also be an indication of illness.

If you suspect that you have a sick tree, we can help! Our specialized tree products allow for quick recovery, and our knowledgeable and experienced staff provides for an accurate diagnosis. If you have a sick tree that needs help, call us today.

In Conclusion

All plants are lovely and deserve the best. After all, they provide the oxygen that we need as well as the shade from the sun, the paper we use and the fruits we eat. Taking care of your plants shouldn’t feel like a burden once you try our services.

Protect your lawns, help your flowers bloom, and keep your turf green. If you would like to have a lush greenscape on your property, call us at 239-529-6305 so we can discuss the project you have in mind today.
