With the spring season coming into view, you are likely thinking about renewing your landscape beds. Once you have decided to install new softscape, the debate between annual and perennial flowers may come up. Some people think that perennials offer better value because of their longer lifespan. However, it really comes down to your preferences.
Here at Wood Lawn & Landscaping, we install both annual and perennial flowers for residential and commercial properties located in and around Atlantic Beach, Newport, and Morehead City, NC.
While perennial flowers definitely add aesthetic value to your lawn, we want to encourage you to plant some annual flowers during this upcoming spring season. Check out these four reasons to plant spring annual flowers.
Annuals, as their name implies, only last for one year. They must complete all of the stages of life in a shorter period of time compared to perennials. In one year, annuals need to:
Because of this rapid process, annuals are efficient growers. They often stay in bloom all season long, so you will have a bright and vibrant garden year-round.
Perennials will only bloom for a few weeks before they need to focus their energy on preparing for the next season.

Lawns and landscaping need to endure all manners of weather, including rain, wind, and snow. Winter weather can be particularly harsh on grass and landscape plants, and even routine snowfall can have a detrimental effect.
When ice forms on grass, it can make the blades brittle and all too easy to break—the same is true of other plant life. Routine lawn and landscape maintenance ensures your grass and plants will be vibrant and resilient enough to weather the winter months. That’s why it’s important to ready your lawn and landscaping for winter—a process known as winterization—which includes trimming plants, proper lawn mowing, and winter mulching, among other practices.
Here are some key reasons to ensure your lawn and landscaping is ready for winter in Morehead City, Newport, Atlantic Beach, and nearby cities in North Carolina.
Since weakened grass is more susceptible to cold weather damage, it’s critical to maintain a healthy lawn year-round. Proper and consistent lawn mowing, fertilizing your grass at the proper intervals, and routine weed control—in addition to proper watering—all contribute to the overall health and optimal condition of your lawn. The stronger you keep your lawn throughout the year, the better prepared it will be come winter.

Installing and renovating landscape beds is one of our specialties here at Wood Lawn & Landscaping, so when we got the call to install and renovate landscaping for a homeowner in Newport, NC, we were excited to begin.
This homeowner had quite a few areas of landscaping that needed to be redone, so our team sat down, came up with a design, and got to work installing their new landscape plants and ground cover.
Check out some more information and photos from this recent project below. We install and design landscaping for properties in Morehead City, Newport, Atlantic Beach, and the nearby areas in North Carolina.
At one time, their existing landscaping was full of life and looked vibrant. But over the years, nature began to take its toll and the homeowners had been left with shabby-looking trees and shrubs, as well as piles of old pine straw. We went in, tore out what was there, save for some majestic palm trees they had out front, and removed the pine straw as well. Doing this allowed us to start our renovation with a clean slate.
The outside of the home is a nice tan color, so we opted to choose plants that would complement the exterior and also give off a coastal North Carolina vibe. We kept their existing palm trees and installed new plants around them, along with some gorgeous ornamental grasses. Some...
