All About Balance

 In Blog, Summer

It’s pretty amazing how our society has changed. It’s also pretty amazing how much can be accomplished from home. Thank you for helping stop the spread of COVID-19. We are all doing our part to keep everyone healthy. Let’s keep up the positive pace.

Being Mindful of Work/Life Balance

One thing about being home all the time is the importance of being mindful of your balance. While some people find it difficult to motivate themselves to work, it is also very easy to never stop working. Don’t forget about making time for yourself and your family.

Therapeutic Gardening

Your garden and personal backyard oasis is a great place for you to spend time alone or as a family.

Weeding and pruning can be very therapeutic — unless that isn’t your calling or you have avoided it for far too long. If that’s the case, you will need the help of our experts. We’re here to help.

If you’re looking to add some visual interest to your garden and you have little ones at home, here is a list of some favourite plants among young children:

  • butterfly bush
  • lamb’s ear
  • magnolia
  • clematis
  • sunflowers
  • lilacs
  • alyssum
  • snapdragons
  • obedient plant

Think big flowers, butterflies, sweet scents, and varieties of textures. Or, consider a raised garden of raspberries and strawberries, tomatoes, cucumbers, pumpkins, and other easy to grow edibles. Kids will love to help take care of their plants and watch them grow.

A friendly reminder to our wonderful customers: We are still looking for photos of your landscapes and beautiful gardens. If you have any you would like to share, please send them to

We want you to be proud to say “Green Thumb is my gardener”.
