Get Your McHenry New Homes Ready for Spring

Have you taken time lately to enjoy the wonderful outside space offered by your McHenry new homes? Now that it’s almost officially spring, warmer weather is on the way and we want all of our homeowners to get the most out of their outdoor space.

One of the most beautiful parts of any outdoor living space is the garden. Our homes offer plenty of space to start a garden with our generous lot sizes. Here are some tips to get your garden growing:

*Make sure you know which plants prefer sunlight and which prefer shade, so that your plant will be happy in its new home.

*Make sure your soil is properly prepared to accommodate new plants and that it has plenty of drainage for those April showers.

*Be conscious of what animals and insects might be attracted to your new plants.

*Planting on a cloudy or rainy day actually makes it more likely that your plants will survive.

*You only need to water your plants once a week, even on hot days, but make sure you use plenty of water on that one day.

We hope these gardening tips will help get your new garden started on the right root. Once you’ve accomplished the initial planting period, be sure you enjoy the view from the four season room of your McHenry, Richmond, Poplar Grove or Williams Bay homes.
