Landscaping a home can be a very nerve-racking time. There is a lot that goes into making sure your investment is done 100% correct or you risk wasting a lot of your hard earned money and time. To make this process a little easier we have laid out the top 3 (there are more but you can contact us here to find out more) landscaping mistakes that nearly every homeowner tries to make or has made.

Where Should I Plant My New Trees?
One thing you will hear nursery pros say all the time is, “The right tree for the right space”. But what does this mean? It means that you should always take the space you are planting your new tree into consideration when choosing your new tree. Some trees grow more upright, some grow wider than others, and some grow taller and wider. So what do you do? The best thing you can do is ask a certified nursery professional, like the ones at all Moon Valley Nursery locations.  Below are a few recomendations for trees in tight spaces along with trees for larger areas. 

Trees for tight spaces

Ficus-2.jpgColumn Ficus “Hollywood Hedge”
Our Hollywood Style Hedges are narrow upright growers that work very well in tight areas where there is not a lot of room for planting or for allowing a tree to get to wide. These are great for privacy as well as blocking out unwanted noise and providing great cooling shade. Click to see more privacy hedges

 

 

 

queen-palm-3.pngPiru Queen Palm
The Piru Queen Palm is the absolute best variety of Queen Palm available. Thicker trunks, fuller crowns make this Argentinean variety a customer favorite of Moon Valley Nurseries for over 20 years. Plant these in groups to create thick cooling shade, privacy, and to minimalize the planting area. Click to see more privacy hedges

 

 

carolina-cherry.jpgCarolina Cherry 
Moon Valley Nurseries grows the compacta variety of the Carolina Cherry, this is the best variety to grow in our Southwest climate. These tight growing column style plants are another favorite for tight areas that will provide privacy, shade as well as a great dark green color.

 

 

 

privet-1.pngJapanese Privet 
The Japanese Privet is a deep green glossy-leaved tree that grows as a hedge or it can be trimmed to grow as a tree. The small root structure makes this ideal for planting in tight spaces, around pools, BBQ area, fire pits, patios, walkways, and more.

 

 

 

pygmy-1.pngPygmy Date Palm
These small dwarf variety palms add a splash of tropical flair to any landscape style and are extremely easy to grow and to establish in our climate. The multiple trunks that grow with the pygmy palm make this great for filling tight areas while having a minimal root structure and not being invasive.

 

 

 

crape-new.pngCrape Myrtle
A beautiful flowering tree, the Crape Myrtle is available in many different varieties and colors. These small to medium sized trees are summertime bloomers offering an abundance of color throughout the season. These are easy to plant in tight areas due to their small non-invasive root structure. Click to see more flowering trees

 



Trees for larger areas:

 

tipu.jpgTipu
If you're looking for a tree that can grow on its own with minimal assistance from you, then the Tipu tree is the one for you. he Tipu tree is one of the most popular trees we offer at Moon Valley Nursery, and it is everywhere in our city. We guarantee you passed one on the way to work today. They are very fast growing trees that have an upright growth pattern creating and providing a large area with shade. These trees are also drought tolerant once established and they can handle even the hottest summer days. It produces a unique show of golden blooms from late spring and into early summer.

ficus-1.jpgFicus (Arizona and California only)
These fast-growing evergreen shade trees are the perfect option if you're looking to block out a large from the summer sun. It's foliage dense which allows no sunlight to penetrate through its canopy and as an evergreen it will keep its foliage all year. It can be pruned to any shape and because its canopy is so dense it provides great privacy as well. When properly placed around a home, its canopy can provide enough shade to help cool down the backyard and your home, which can lead to lower utility bills.

 

pistache.pngChinese Pistache
A fast growing tree that provides piercing beauty to any landscape, the Chinese Pistache is known for its bright red and orange leaves in the fall which makes it a reliable favorite for fall color every year. The tree produces a large canopy of shade while displaying showy and attractive dark green leaves during the summer. The Chinese Pistache is drought and cold tolerant and can grow in the full sun. Due to the Chinese Pistache's size, the tree is ideal when planted in an area where shade is needed.

 

Evergreen-Ash-1.pngEvergreen Ash
A classic looking "Legacy Type" tree, the Shamel Ash, also known as the ‘Evergreen Ash’, is a great solution for just about any landscape that needs a large, fast-growing shade tree. Capable of reaching great heights, the classic, larger-leaved, green foliage is attractive and compliments just about any landscape. It creates a massive canopy of shade and is a great climbing tree or even one to hang a swing off of! 

 

 

live-oak-2.pngLive Oak
You're probably thinking, 'a Southern tree in our region'? The answer is yes and the Southern Live Oak, Quercus virginiana, looks right at home planted in Southwestern landscapes. It is native to the coastal plains of the southeastern U.S and grows at a moderate rate. It is a large evergreen shade tree noted for its beauty and extreme drought tolerance. In fact, the Southern Live Oak was the lone survivor during the recent great Texas drought! Once established it will require low water, just let nature do the rest. This beauty will thrive in your landscape with full sun and little to no special care required.

Planting too much or most likely too little
Homeowners landscaping a new property don’t always understand exactly how many or how few plants they may actually need. If you plant too many plants in an area, you may end up having to spend even more money down the road to have them removed and it can also raise maintenance costs for the property. If you don’t plant enough plants then you are going to have to do this all again later and this will increase more time spent plus the plants you wanted may not always be available. This is why before you plant, you should always consult with a Moon Valley Nurseries certified design pro. A good designer will listen to your goals and what you are trying to accomplish thus ensuring that your lansscape projext is done right the first time. 

Buying Trees and Plants from bad sources
The third and probably the most important step that most homeowners make when landscaping a new home is they go to the big box stores or to non reputable nurseries in their area. Where you buy the mateial for your landscape is probably just as important as what you put in your landscape. Don’t be fooled by cheap prices and inferior products and don’t just buy a tree because it’s cheap, you get what you pay for.

Moon Valley Nurseries has certified tree professionals at all locations and is the largest box tree grower in America. Our trees are larger and grown only from our premium cuttings to assure that our customers are getting the best product available. Go where the pros go and make sure you speak with someone from Moon Valley Nurseries before you make one of these 3 critical landscape mistakes.

Why June Gloom Is The Best Time To Plant In California

Posted by Garrett Cleverly on 5/30/2017
june-1.png
June Gloom has arrived and while it may dampen our outdoor fun for just a few weeks under the usually sunny Southern California sky the June Gloom marks one of the best times to plant trees and shrubs of all sizes. 
 
Now you're probably asking, 'how could overcast skies make this month one of the best times to plant?'
 
A quick breakdown you can use to amaze your friends, family members, and neighbors is that the June Gloom weather pattern in Southern California creates ideal conditions conducive to amazing plant growth. The cool nights and the overcast yet humid mornings that give way to sunny and warm afternoons are the near perfect conditions planting trees and shrubs of all varieties. If you're looking to amaze people even further, check out the extra tips from our certified nursery professionals. 
 
Extends the planting season
This weather pattern extends the planting season, which provides newly planted trees and shrubs an extended period of time to establish their root system before the temperature cranks up a notch in July, August, and September. With an established root system, the newly planted tree or shrub will focus its energy on top growth. 
 
Humidity helps
Newly planted trees and shrubs do not want to be planted in hot and/or dry conditions. Those conditions will force the newly planted tree or shrub to work even harder to establish a root system. Plus, many of the trees and shrubs homeowners are wanting to plant will need water. With overcast conditions and humidity, which is just water vapor, the newly planted tree can ease into its new home in your backyard without having to work hard to establish a root system. Plus, the cooler weather, overcast days, and humidity give all of us an opportunity to cut back on our water usage.
 
Filtered light
We all know that when it is hot outside the last thing you want to do is to stand under the sun for hours. You'll 100% be uncomfortable while possibly getting burned and thirsty. Now we are lucky because we can run back into our homes or jump into the ocean. Our trees aren't as lucky and they have to take those conditions every day in throughout the summer. Established trees can handle these conditions, while newly planted trees can have a hard time. Planting now allows the tree to minimize its transplant shock. The forecast calls for 70 degrees all week. That's obviously much better than those summer days when it can get up to the mid-90s. 
 
Give Your Trees A Fertilizer Boost
There are ways to give the material in our landscape a boost during this beneficial time and that would be with a specialized fertilizer designed to trigger new root hair growth and stronger cell development while helping the tree grow faster and recover quicker from stressful events. At Moon Valley Nurseries we have our Super Charged Moon Juice. It also enhances the ability of plants to ward off diseases, possible infestations and infections from outside sources. It helps trees and plants both prevent and recover from stresses caused by extreme heat, frost, freeze, transplanting or other stressful events. In addition, we also have our Super Palm Juice which will help produce thicker, stronger trunks while maintaining the fronds with a healthy, dark green appearance resulting in lush, dense crowns, our Moon Green which is an easy to use solution for yellowing trees and plants, and our Moon Dust which provides Nitrogen, Phosphorus and Potash (Potassium) for a perfect horticultural ratio that will benefit virtually every plant in your landscape.

Top Health Benefits Of Landscaping

Posted by Garrett Cleverly on 4/26/2017

Landscape-15.png
We all have crazy and fast-paced lives. Between the 40+ hour work weeks, what seems to be endless commitments to family and friends, and the random errands that consistently pop up it really is hard to stop everything your doing to literally smell the roses.

On today's blog that is what we are doing. We're going to try our best to convince you to stop the hustle and to get outside and to smell the roses. This is especially true during this time of year and you do not want to miss it. Flowers are blooming, butterflies and hummingbirds are everywhere, and the temperature is still amazing.

Our nursery pros are outside everyday, and we asked all of them what health benefits that brings them throughout the week.

Burn Calories
Have you been dreading that 4-mile run? It's ok, we all dread it too! Instead of a run, consider doing some light maintenance on your yard. Need to mow the lawn? That can burn around 300 calories. Are the weeds looking nasty? Pull them for an hour and you have burned more than 200 calories. Even watering and just walking around your landscape can burn calories. Most of these are equivalent to that run you've been dreading! Check out this link from CalorieLab that has even more calorie burned ratios for lawn and garden care.

Eat What You Grow
When you're at the grocery store, you're at the mercy and trust of what was applied to the vegetables and fruit your about to eat. Bottom line is that you may never know. When it comes to growing you're own food, you know exactly what is in the soil and what you have fertilized them with. PLUS, gardening with the little ones is a great way to expose them to those nasty vegetables they have been pushing off the dinner plate. By allowing them to participate in the process from seed to food they will be able to reap the rewards. And finally, it has been proven that gardeners take in more vitamins and minerals than those who do not garden. With all the extra food in the backyard, you're bound to eat it up!

Better For Your Health
You don't need to escape to the wilderness to improve your health. Little things like a view of nature outside a window of trees or a garden have proven in studies to have more positive influences of your state-of-mind compared to urban scene or even that plasma television. Many studies have shown that just by looking outside your window at trees can reduce blood pressure and walks around your landscape can make you a better task performer and a decreased in anger compared to walks around an urban area. Neighborhoods that have green spaces or community garden areas have shown lower incidences of stress, lower health care coasts, and an improved quality of life. If you have time check out this guide from Naturesacred.org. It further discusses the health benefits of nature and landscapes.

Cleaner Air
Trees and shrubs are amazing. Without them, we may not all be here. While we are stressing throughout the day these amazing plants are constantly improving our air quality. Studies have shown that a tree can remove up to 26 pounds of carbon dioxide from the air. That's about one cars yearly annual output. Another study showed that one acre of trees can remove up to 26,000 tons of unwanted gases and particles in the air. Trees and shrubs can remove dust, smoke, and other pollutants from the air and even inside our home. There are many indoor houseplants that act as natural filtration systems. No need to spend hundreds of your hard earned money on a machine. Put a few houseplants in your home and you'll notice the difference right away! Click here to see the top indoor houseplants we recommend to cleaner air.

There are even more ways that landscaping can improve your health and we'd love to hear about it below! Sound off the in comments by sharing the benefits it brings to you.

If you have any questions on how to properly landscape your home for these amazing benefits, be sure to visit us and speak to one of our certified nursery pros. You can map us right here! Hope to see you soon.

How To Landscape A Home For A Quick Sale

Posted by Garrett Cleverly on 3/1/2017

 

Nice-House.png
When it comes to selling a home or even your home competition can be tough and you're always going to want to have that unique edge over the other homes in the neighborhood. One area that is often overlooked is the landscape. So much time and effort is spent making the inside look amazing that many sellers overlook the first thing people see when the arrive at your home.....the front yard landscape! 

Whether your a homeowner selling your home or a real estate agent looking to help a client, our nursery pros have identified four key areas that can help you sell that home even faster!

Block out unwanted views and nosy neighbors to create a private backyard space
The last thing you want a potential home buyer to see is a unsightly site on their new landscape or the neighbors eyes peering down into the backyard. Fortunately for you, Moon Valley Nurseries has the best selection of privacy hedges and giant shade trees. And no, we're not talking about privacy that will take years to grow in. We're talking instant privacy that can be planted in less than a day.

Ficus-Hedge-3.pngLet's start with our hedges. Because we are the growers, we're able to grow unique specimens that fulfill our customers needs. So when a customers says that they need instant privacy, we turn them to our "Hollywood Style" hedges. The most popular choice we have is our Indian Laurel (Ficus) columns. These evergreen hedges are fast growing, can tolerate both heat and cold and can grow so big they can block out a second story view. Some other fantastic options our our Japanese Privets, Italian Cypress, Japanese Blueberry, and Carolina Cherry. Now if you're looking to add color and privacy, consider a Bottlebrush (red flowers), Oleander (red, pink, white flowers) or our Crape Myrtle (red, purple, pink, white flowers).

Bottlebrush-5.pngAnother option for privacy is planting a massive specimen tree. We have thousands of them at Moon Valley Nurseries and to keep the privacy all year long, you are going to want to plant an evergreen tree. Evergreen trees require minimal maintenance and will stay green all year long. Great options for this is our Ficus, Camphor, Fruitless Olive, Live Oak, Japanese Privet, and Magnolia. If you looking to add a little color we have the Brazilian Pepper (produces eye-catching and showy red berries) and the Thevetia (produces yellow flowers). All of these trees provide great shade as well.

How to properly landscape around a home
When it comes to planting a landscape, you're going to want to consider a theme and proper placement.

Museum-palo-Verde-2.pngBecause we live in such a unique climate that allows us to plant a wide range of trees and shrubs, there are many landscape themes to pick from. You can go with a Mediterranean theme (Italian Cypress, Mediterranean Fan Palms, or one of our Olive tree varieties), an attractive desert theme or water wise theme (Museum Palo Verde, Chilean Mesquite, Desert Willow, Sweet Acacia, California Pepper, African Sumac), a minimal maintenance theme (evergreen trees), or even a tropical theme (Canary Island Date Palm, Tropical Bird of Paradise, Hibiscus, Piru Queen Palm, Pygmy Date Palm). The list above is just a small sample of what we have to offer at Moon Valley Nurseries. There are hundreds of more trees and options and we are for sure going to have the solution at Moon Valley Nurseries.

The reason why you want to keep a theme is that you don't want an unsightly landscape that features a desert tree mixed in with an evergreen and deciduous tree all planted next to each other. That is just way too much for one landscape. When it comes to placement, the last thing you want to do is to plant a tree that will drop its foliage straight into the pool or a tree that will block a water or electric line. Even worse, you don't want to plant a tree that doesn't fit the HOA code.

November Landscape and Garden Tips

Posted by Paul Popoff on 11/15/2016

Winter Watering, Fertilizing, What Trees to Plant Now and More

November Landscape Garden Tip.jpg

In this months issue of November Landscape and Garden Tips, we have a wealth of information that is going to help you and your yard this season. This is the time of year when things finally begin to change around town. Some trees are changing color as they adjust to the cooler winter temperatures and others are pushing out spurts of new growth. One of the most overlooked practices this time of year by homeowners is watering and fertilizing. A big misconception is that because everything is pushing out new growth and seems to be growing well, that they are getting the right amount of water and fertilizer, unfortunately more often than not, this isn't the case.

To Do List:

  •  Winter Watering: During the cooler months it is important that we back off the watering frequency. This allows trees, plants and even grass a chance to develop strong deep roots that will encourage more growth come the following spring. This also creates a landscape that is less susceptible to disease and insect infestation. It is important to continue to water deeply each time you water, and different plants will have different frequency requirements. You can download our watering guide here Winter Watering Guide to help you get a better idea on just how to take care of your landscape. 
  • Fertilization: Fertilizing everything and hardening them up as we say in the industry is a great way to give your landscape one last push through the winter months. Fertilizing your palms, shade trees, evergreen trees, flowering trees, and even your dormant trees now gives them the best chance of pulling though the winter and taking off come spring time. We recommend using our custom blended fertilizers for your landscape needs as they are specifically formatted for our soil and weather conditions. These cane be purchased at all Moon Valley Nursery locations or online here
  • Vegetable Gardens: Fall and winter is a great time to be planting your winter veggies! Our cold weather vegetables are going to be things like cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, kale, lettuce, peas, spinach and everyones favorite tomatoes and jalapenos! These should all be started now and fertilized once a month while they are growing. These need to be watered regularly and given a chance to dry out in between each watering cycle. This helps them to develop good strong roots through post production. 

Below are a few trees our experts recommend planting for this month

Chinese-Elm-3.pngChinese Elm 'True Green'
One of the best shade trees or those sun drenched homes, the Chinese Elm is an attractive tree that can be planted as the focal point in any landscape. It absolutely loves the sun and the variety we carry at Moon Valley Nurseries does not weep. Ours is a fast growing tree that grow upright and round for maximum shade and curb appeal. It's leaves are small and elliptic in shape and the bark sheds in a puzzle fashion. It's a fantastic option for any landscape seeking instant shade. 

 

Tipu-11.pngTipu
This fast growing tree is an excellent option for those water conscious homeowners looking to add shade and color at the same time. The Tipu is one of the fastest growing varieties we offer at Moon Valley Nurseries . In time, it's upright and open umbrella shaped canopy will provide shade where desired. When it comes to color, it's flowers are a golden yellow color and are abundant in late spring to early summer. It can become drought tolerant once established and it thrives in cold and heat.

It produces white flowers in late spring and in the fall and winter it produces pinkish colored fruits in clusters. Many homeowners use these berries during the holidays for crafty displays. 

 

California-Pepper-1.pngCalifornia Pepper
Even though this tree has the name "pepper" in it, it is vastly different when compared to the Brazilian Pepper. The California Pepper is originally from South America, but it has found a home in our region. It is an evergreen tree that displays a weeping appearance that is graceful looking. It thrives in our sun and it produces a broad canopy of layered shade. It grows more upright than it does wide and it is supported by its strong trunk and branches. The California Pepper also produces red-colored berries in small and rounded clusters. It requires minimal water once established.

Lemon-2.pngFruit & Citrus - Lemon tree in photo

Jacaranda-6.pngJacaranda
These trees can be found almost anywhere in our region for a reason. Their showy, blue-purple flowers in large-thick clusters is what makes this tree a popular flowering tree for just about any landscape. The Jacaranda loves the full sun and it can handle the cold as well. it's growth pattern is upright, as if it was trying to reach for the stars and the tips of its branches are where the clusters of flowers bloom. The Jacaranda has more of an open canopy creating shade to a large area where shade is desired. We offer single and multi-trunk varieties at Moon Valley Nurseries and this tree is one of the most eye-catching curb appeal trees you cab plant.

Magnolia-2.pngMagnolia
The Southern United States does not have a monopoly on this tree, and they can be found throughout our region. Magnolia's are amazing trees. For starters, their cream-white flowers not only are impressive to look at, they also give off a pleasing aroma.  It's large waxy-like leaves have helped the Magnolia have a thick canopy, giving much-needed shade. At Moon Valley Nurseries, a few of our Magnolia varieties have the green and brown backs adding yet another layer of color. Over time, the Magnolia will create a wide range of shade and it absolutely thrives in our sun and heat.

Japanese-Blueberry-1.pngJapanese Blueberry
The Japanese Blueberry is a visually appealing evergreen due to its dense, lush foliage and striking leaf color throughout the year which provides a fantastic backdrop for contrasting flowers and shrubs. It thrives in full sun and handle the cold extremely well. It has become one of regions most planted hedge variety and is an excellent choice for just about any landscape.

 

 

Carolina-Cherry-2.pngCarolina Cherry
Native to the Southeastern United States, the Carolina Cherry has become a popular choice for its minimal maintenance, natural upright conical shape, and ability to tolerate heat, drought, and wind.
