vacation home by the ocean
I recently purchased two lots with a manufactured home on them, surrounded by native trees and with a couple of rhodys and a hydrangea. It's close to the ocean - may be IN the ocean one day!
I've never gardened where the water comes from a well, or over a septic tank or where I don't live full time. HELP!
I know it's not a good idea to use any chemicals that will pollute the well water, but I have a zillion dandelions I'd like to get rid of. Is hand digging my only option?
And I know I'm not supposed to plant trees or shrubs with deep root systems on the drain field.
Are there any good websites that would give me good info about plants that would be fun for my vacation home but would survive a month at a time with no care. Any tips?
Thanks so much,
