Benefits of Adding Water Features to Your Yard

Many homeowners look for clever ways to spruce up their lawns, which can include statues, topiaries, and outdoor lighting. Perhaps one of the most pleasing and relaxing additions are those that involve water features.

The trickling water invokes a sense of calm and adds a decorative touch to the landscape. The benefits of adding water features to your yard are numerous and include improved air quality, increased wildlife presence, peaceful tricking water, and low maintenance. Here are a few reasons why you should consider adding water features to your home or business in Palmetto, Parrish, Bradenton, and nearby Florida areas.


Water Features Attract Wildlife Such As Birds & Frogs to Your Residential or Commercial Property

One of the most exciting benefits of water features is the attraction of wildlife to residential and commercial properties. All animals need water, and they usually spend a good portion of their day seeking it out. The installation of a pond or waterfall will offer a refreshing place for animals to stop and cool off. You can see birds, frogs, squirrels, and many other animals visit your yard to take advantage of the...

Which Perennials Should You Choose for Your Florida Yard?

In this area of Florida that includes Palmetto, Parrish, and Bradenton, we are blessed with a great climate where many different types of plants can grow and thrive. That means there are several choices for you to consider when looking at installing new landscaping or renovating your existing landscaping beds. At Three Seasons, we can supply or install plants for your landscaping needs.

Here is a guide to commonly used perennials in our area so that you can read through and choose which perennials you’d like to use for your Florida yard.


What Are Perennials and Why Are They a Good Choice?

Coneflowers, or echinacea, are a great perennial choice for Florida yards in Parrish.

Perennials are plants that will live for at least two growing seasons, but often they will live much longer than that. They are a good choice for your landscaping because they are a lasting investment. Annual plants will only live for one growing season and you have to replant them more often.


Flowering Shrubs Include Azaleas, Begonias, Butterfly Bush, Hibiscus, & More

Azaleas can thrive in the Florida climate of Bradenton.

A great way to add color to your yard is to plant flowering shrubs. These shrubs can grow for years if they are treated with the right fertilizer and pest control practices....

Why You Should Choose a Local Plant Nursery

Choosing a local nursery is a great way to support local business, and to buy locally grown plants that are adapted to our climate and conditions. Also, many plants for sale at big box stores are shipped from out of state and can suffer damage along the way, leading to unhealthy growth and even death.

Our huge selection, knowledgeable staff, and healthier locally grown plants make a trip to our nursery a better overall choice than a visit to a corporate retailer.


Better Selection of Plants than Big Box Stores

The selection of plants at our Palmetto location outshines big box stores.

Most of the corporate “big box stores” sell thousands of items, and have a smaller “garden” section with minimal plant choices. Sure, they may look good on the shelf or pallet, but they often endure long shipping processes that can lead to a decline in plant health.

Our local nursery is dedicated to nurturing and growing a wide variety of locally grown plants that are already accustomed to our conditions. Our inventory is much larger than the one or two aisles you will browse at a national retail chain, giving you a better selection for choices, sizes, and plant species.

If you want the exact plant that will suit your landscaping ...
