New Service - Find A Designer In Your Area

While The Landscape Design Site does a pretty good job of helping folks design and install their own landscaping ideas projects, some people will still end up needing the help of a professional. If not for their entire project, for certain parts of it.

While there are several reasons why you might need the help of a professional, finding a good one with a good reputation is often more difficult than it should be.

So I've added a form to the site that will put you in contact with a pre-screened reputable company in your own area. There's no cost or obligation. Who knows. Using a professional may be less than you think. You can find the form at:

Soil PH And Pink Flowers

Proper soil PH (acidity / alkalinity) is necessary for the proper nutrient uptake of plants. While most garden plants do well in a neutral soil, some require more acid or more alkaline to grow optimally.

In this article I'll give an example of the effects of improper PH while at the same time showing you how some gardeners alter the PH of their soil to make some of their naturally blue flowers turn pink.
