Expression through Flowers with Ace of Gray

Flower Arrangement

They are beautiful, they smell lovely and they can convey feelings that we often can’t find the words to express. Flowers make everything better. A simple bouquet can light up a drab room and help heal a broken heart. In short, there is real power in the flower.

You might know us at Ace of Gray for our hardware expertise or our huge selection of outdoor décor, sporting goods and power equipment. However, did you know that we also specialize in beautiful flower arrangements for all occasions?

Our friendly team can help you choose the right arrangement and color scheme for any occasion!

The Right Flowers for the Right Occasion

When you send a flower arrangement, it’s important that you choose the right combination for the occasion. Whether you’re celebrating the birth of a precious baby or memorializing an old friend, we will make sure that your arrangement is put together in an appropriate way.

The wonderful thing about flowers is their vast range of natural colors. From bright red roses and pink carnations to white lilies and callas, blending the color palate of your arrangement is a great way to show you care no matter the occasion.

Container Garden DIY

Choosing the Right Flowers or Vegetables

Georgia can get hot in the summer months, so making sure you choose the right flowers and plants for your garden is key. At Ace of Gray, our garden center specializes in beautiful flowers like Black-Eyed Susans, California Poppies and Sunflowers, all of which do well in Georgia’s hot and humid summer climate.

What You’ll Need

Container Gardens are extremely popular these days, and rightly so! They are easy to make, they take advantage of existing materials that would otherwise be thrown in the trash and they are a ton of fun!

Once you’ve chosen the containers you want to use and added the requisite decorations, you’ll need to make sure there are drain holes set about an inch apart throughout the bottom of your container. A simple drill and pilot bit are all you need for this.

Your plants will come in planting containers. If they are small enough to fit your decorative container, it is perfectly fine to place your flowers directly inside. Otherwise, you will need a small amount of potting soil. Fill your container with the soil, stopping about an inch from the top. Dig out a hole big enough for your plant’s root ball, place the root ball into the soil and fill in around it with more soil.

Pick Out Where Your Garden Will Go

Whether you want to hang your container garden or add it as decoration to a walkway, we have all the hardware and supplies you will need. For more tips on how to create a stunning DIY container garden for your home, give us a call or stop by Ace of Gray today!

Explore Our Lawn Mower Options

As the summer quickly approaches, you run into quite the predicament. The sun gets hotter and your grass gets longer. An easy solution would be just to cut it, but at Ace of Gray, we want to give you some pointers on ways to stay cool and get it done both quickly and efficiently.

Mowing a Beautiful Lawn

  • Our first recommendation would be to use a riding lawn mower. A riding lawn mower will help you conserve energy as opposed to walking and pushing. It will also help you move faster and perform more accurate turns, which will result in a better-looking lawn.
  • Figure out a way to mow while under an umbrella or other structure. There are some mowers that come with an attachment to shield the sun. If that is not the case with your mower, see how to construct a canopy on your lawn mower.
  • Dress in comfortable, breathable clothing. You will not want to wear heavy clothes while mowing because it will raise your body temperature causing you to overheat. Pairing an umbrella with cool clothing will definitely help keep your body temperature down.
  • To mow more quickly, have a pre-determined route you will take while on your mower. This will help your lawn look neat and will help you move quicker!

Take a look at the lawn mowers we offer at Ace. We have a few new models in stock that should be very helpful in making your lawn look incredible! As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.
