So You Bought a House. What's next? Nature Calls: Conversations from the Hudson Valley

Episode 33: So You Bought a House

Are you a new homeowner in the Hudson Valley? Do you have questions about where to start when making an existing garden your own? This podcast episode of  Nature Calls: Conversations from the Hudson Valley might just be a great place to start. Realtor and Master Gardener Volunteer Candidate, Eileen Goble, provides lots of good suggestions.

Assessing what is already planted, meeting your wildlife neighbors, watching how much sun or shade your property gets during different times of the year, testing your soil, determining how much effort you are willing to put into maintenance, and understanding what will grow in this New York climate, are all things to think about before you dig in and start planting. Whether you are thinking about annuals, perennials, shrubs or trees, making an investment in time to plan your new landscape will pay off in years to come.
