In sweltering temperatures like we’ve had lately, working outside might be the furthest thing from your mind. But your garden needs you during the summer! HomeGrown cohosts Bob Hill and Jeneen Wiche join us to take your questions about what your garden needs now, and how to get it ready to stay in tip-top shape through the end of the hottest months of the year.

How to Be a Green Landscaper

The newest trends in landscaping revolve around environmentally conscious choices that work to eliminate non-natural elements from your yard. Everything, from which plants you put in your yard to how you maintain them, affects both the local and global environments. Tuesday we will talk with green landscaping experts about how to make the best decisions for your yard and the planet.
