    Started using Daddy Pete’s pine bark fines in my annual beds because of your videos- thanks for the detailed videos, sir.

    Hi. Did you put down mulch or was that soil? I ask becuse I purchased black mulch for our front space because we mostly have shrubs that has been there for years. Well as of today I decided to buy flowers (didn’t purchase any gardening soil) 😟. Was I supposed to? Or can I plant them and then put mulch around them ? If I have to get the gardening soil, do I no longer need the mulch? Or do I put mulch around the shrubs and soil around the flowers . Anything you suggest helps becuse I’m a first timer!

    What flag is that hanging on the house?

  10. Cindy Crandall on August 19, 2020 at 9:59 pm

    My husband said you did an absolutely fantastic job. He enjoys watching and learning from you.

  11. J Dorris on August 19, 2020 at 9:59 pm

    You at the end sitting there drenched in sweat is a sign of a good day’s work. Looks nice Pete!

  12. Tim Gragg on August 19, 2020 at 10:01 pm

    You sure got your flowers right! AWESOME Pete!

  13. Tre on August 19, 2020 at 10:01 pm

    Landscaping rookie here. Don’t flowers bring in more insects?

  14. JCR Services on August 19, 2020 at 10:02 pm

    Amazing work as always Pete! Appreciate all of the tips! Look forward to each and every one of your videos!

  15. Ron Hart on August 19, 2020 at 10:04 pm

    Look N GOOOD !!!!! I don’t know if your Lantana is the same as Florida Lantana. But in my area you would have planted WAY to many and to close together. I planted mine in the spring and it is already 2ft high and wide. The late freeze got me. So I cut them back to the ground and they came back in beautiful . Love the color and the bees they bring . I have some Blueberries planted and the Lantana has really brought in the BEES and Butterflies 🙂

    I just moved in to a neighborhood where people take their lawns and gardening VERY serious. The competition is on! Thank you Pete

  17. K Jr on August 19, 2020 at 10:07 pm

    What red bush do you have in the north part of the house?

  18. Philip Suter on August 19, 2020 at 10:09 pm


  19. JR on August 19, 2020 at 10:11 pm

    is snapshot similar to preen?

  20. ColonelK0rn on August 19, 2020 at 10:15 pm

    After watching your video you did last year on your beds, I used some of the tips you gave in that video to make my flower bed in the front. I’ll be extending my bed around the South side of my house this year. I was really excited to see this notification pop up in my feed. I’ve got some coleus that I’m looking to get into the ground soon, we’ve been blessed with some rain this week. I’ve tried to get the Daddy Pete’s soil conditioner product locally, but can’t find it 🙁

  21. Chase Williamson on August 19, 2020 at 10:17 pm

    Awesome job. That looks really good.

  22. 1981 sports card dad on August 19, 2020 at 10:17 pm

    Man you keep a great looking yard. Hope my yard is there some day been working on it this year. As we just moved in.

  23. Alex Beard on August 19, 2020 at 10:21 pm

    Please show an update on your annuals today!

  25. Myrick Willard on August 19, 2020 at 10:25 pm

    I’m glad you showed how you apply the Snapshot pre-emergent… I didn’t know you could put it down that heavily AND on the actual plants themselves… good to know. Let me ask this, does putting this pre-emergent down not hurt the roots from the plants when they start spreading out into the dirt at all? I would’ve thought it would, but I know you’ve been doing this for a while so I wanted to ask?

  26. German on August 19, 2020 at 10:25 pm

    Does snapshot affect the growth or health of the flowers at all?? I would think it would get down to the flowers roots and hurt them

  27. Idkmybff Jill on August 19, 2020 at 10:26 pm

    Hey pete..what does a healthy fescue blade look like as opposed to an unhealthy one? Does the blade thicken with time? Would you mind showing in a video of established lawn vs 1-2 year old?

  28. CleanCutLawns NC on August 19, 2020 at 10:27 pm

    Awesome video as always! I’m not far from you. I’m near Charlotte. Do you have to join the academy to buy the sprayer assembly?

  29. Ortho Doc on August 19, 2020 at 10:28 pm

    Pete, just watched your fungus video from last year with NC State. The one point you didn’t cover was when to apply the fungicide. Do you apply it by weather conditions or when you start to see disease. Can’t seem to find an answer on this.

  30. R Ryan on August 19, 2020 at 10:30 pm

    Very nice Pete, Question- I have read that watering of a evening promotes bacteria and mold issues? What’s your take?

  31. Amos Hamlin Jr on August 19, 2020 at 10:31 pm

    Where you find that augur for the drill? You know your stuff, love watching your vids.

  32. J Woody on August 19, 2020 at 10:31 pm

    A lot of hard work right there. Good job Pete!

  33. Cecil All41 on August 19, 2020 at 10:32 pm

    Pete you are one bad dude; you inspire me!😁

  34. dixie normus on August 19, 2020 at 10:33 pm

    Us guy’s and girl’s from the southern hemisphere envy you guy’s at the moment because we are going into winter now and everything’s going to dormant where for you guys it’s growing season

  35. Danny C on August 19, 2020 at 10:34 pm

    What kind of glove do you use?

  36. Nicholas Ellis on August 19, 2020 at 10:35 pm

    Could you do a video tour of your plant beds? Really trying to decide on what to do in my own…

  37. Nick D on August 19, 2020 at 10:36 pm

    Love that Coleus. I need to get me some come spring. Do you get a specific Coleus?

  38. Keith Scalley on August 19, 2020 at 10:37 pm

    What about Preen to prevent weeds? Last 3 months

  39. j g on August 19, 2020 at 10:38 pm

    What do you do to make your liriope so amazing

  40. Ronald Parrish on August 19, 2020 at 10:39 pm

    Fantastic landscaping. What size drill do you use? Is it the same for your sprinkler heads? Thanks for getting your planting on Pete

  41. v bee on August 19, 2020 at 10:40 pm

    Pete what’s in the soil conditioner again thanks have a blessed day

  42. Chris Novelli on August 19, 2020 at 10:40 pm

    Looks great Pete. Is that a 2" or 3" bit?

  43. Mahidi Karif on August 19, 2020 at 10:41 pm

    Hey Pete……..So, do you use the pine needles for your perennials and the soil conditioner for your annuals?


  44. Joe on August 19, 2020 at 10:44 pm

    Man oh man, beautiful job on those beds Pete!. I’m just like you, all my beds are "symmetrical" in color and size.. I know it’s almost a rule of thumb to plant in odd numbers, however I’m so OCD about things having symmetry that I can’t bring myself to have the plantings any different!. Between all of the advice from yourself and Allyn Hane "The Lawn Care Nut" I have an absolutely amazing yard this year, Turf and landscape. So much so that I continually have people stop to ask who maintains my property and sometimes even to take a picture or ask to have a look at my landscape work!. Both of you guys have helped me to step up my game and are giving me the missing pieces when it comes to the yard work game, and it’s definitely gave me the edge over other homes on my street this year. Thanks to you both! You two are the sole reason my property looks so awesome this year.. cheers from ON, Canada.

  45. Toby Howard on August 19, 2020 at 10:44 pm

    Looks great, Pete! I love flowers, too. They really make a landscape pop with all the nice colors that contrast the green turf and the color of pine needles or mulch. I love it! #getyourflowersright

  46. N2LADIES55 on August 19, 2020 at 10:44 pm

    You’ve inspired me to do this at my home and it will make my home look more attractive.

  47. M&C Lawn Services on August 19, 2020 at 10:45 pm

    We started implementing some of your techniques in the way we do flowers, bed edging even the turf care in our own yard, and some customers and improved the way we do things, we can plant faster now as well. Great video and good information as well. God bless

  48. Bryan Pruitt on August 19, 2020 at 10:45 pm

    You the man Pete. I absolutely love the videos. Keep on keeping on brother

  49. Julie Elizabeth on August 19, 2020 at 10:46 pm

    What do you think about black plastic in your bed for weeds?

  50. Patrick Walsh on August 19, 2020 at 10:48 pm

    Thank you. you have been a great help with the flowers going to start doing this on my jobs
