You know the summer is almost over when it’s time for the state fair. The Maryland State Fair is a wonderful family event no matter what your age is. There are rides for small and big kids. If you don’t like the rides, you can see the animals. The 4-H has lots of animals on display as well as the large farm animals in the Cow Palace. And the food! Who doesn’t love fair food?! The fair always has lots of entertainment, including concerts. This year’s headliners are Hailstorm and Sabrina Carpenter.

June Garden Tips

 There’s always something to be doing in the garden.

The dog days of summer can wreak havoc on your turf and drought intolerant plant material.  Water new plantings and turf every day unless it rains.  Continue watering the next day after the rain stops.  Cutting your lawn one half of an inch higher will allow the blades of grass to collect more morning dew.  Pruning this time of year not only keeps your plant material looking well kept but also gives a great opportunity to notice any unwanted pests or diseases.

For more helpful landscape ideas or help getting them accomplished, contact David Dix of DCD Lawnscaping, Inc at 443.463.9957.  Dave has a horticulture degree and is the owner and operator of his small business that has been serving the community for over 17 years.
