Flag Pole

Memorial Day

Memorial Day is the beginning of the summer for many people. In Phoenix and the East Valley, it is already warm. It has been in the upper 90s and lower 100s. If you retired, it is a busy weekend with more people running around on Monday. If you are still a working stiff, then it is a 3 day weekend! Woo Hoo!

Memorial Day is a day to fly your US Flag. Time to be thankful for what others have sacrificed. As a child, we liked to be the one who put the flag on the front of the house. We were always careful to not let it touch the ground. I think part of the reason is that we had to climb up and stretch around the front of the house to put it in the bracket. Exciting stuff for a child.

Some people like a flagpole in their yard. You always have to check what housing association rules and local ordinances are before installing a flagpole. If you have existing features in your yard or are getting items installed, be sure to contact a professional landscaper like Redwood Landscaping in Mesa to get their ideas to enhance your new or existing items. If you have a tree or flagpole or built in barbeque whether it is the front or back yard, hardscape or softscape can be used to make your features stand out. I don’t claim to be an expert, but I like the look of flowers or a rock area around a tree or flagpole to set it off.

The other thing that I like about professionals is they listen to what you want and are able to suggest plants that will fulfill your wishes. I happen to like blooming flowers and don’t mind bees, butterflies or birds feeding. I remember how my parent’s yard had flowers from the crocus pushing through the snow to autumn mums. They can definitely make your yard more beautiful! Call Walter at Redwood for a free quote today!
