Why do you love to garden?
Why do you garden? Is it the fresh feel of soil on your hands? Or maybe it's the time spent together with family playing in the dirt. As spring rolls along, our family is busy working in our own yard, and this year Abby has become a great helper. This week we planted watermelon seeds, replanted our patio container gardens with fresh spring flowers and pulled weeds out of the flower beds. It is hard to beat that kind of time shared together, planting, talking and just enjoying the garden together. So what's your reason for loving the garden?

What's your reason for loving the garden?

If you garden because you want an outdoor space that you can really enjoy, then this weekend's workshop is for you. You'll learn about creating curb appeal as well as creating a landscape that is hardy and low-maintenance. Plus we'll talk about adding garden accents and pottery to really make your outdoors something to be proud of. And if you need some extra design inspiration, check out Kerby's Landscape Design
. We are here to make your gardens your own unique  place to relax and recharge.

Happy Spring,
The Kerby's Nursery Family
