Moon Valley Christmas Trees Are Back

Moon Valley Nurseries is happy to offer our community the best Christmas trees once again this year! These are the freshest trees you will find anywhere – just come in and smell the difference! Our premium-quality trees are grown in Oregon on sustainable tree farms and cut to order. Then the trees start their journey from the Pacific Northwest to Nevada. We place them in our super cold trucks and express-ship them straight to our Christmas tree lots. From the moment they are harvested to the minute they go home with you; our trees are stood in water basins to keep the foliage green and ready for decorations. Because they are available within days of harvesting and cutting, we can guarantee that you will have the freshest and most aromatic trees in town! You might even catch a glimpse of some Pacific Northwest snow on the trees when they arrive!

The Perfect Yard Starts with the Perfect Hedge

FALL HEDGE OVER HEELS WITH YOUR NEW YARD

Hedges are great additions to your yard and useful for a number of reasons! They help reduce noise from roads, nearby parks, and loud neighbors. They block the view of two story homes around you. They also make incredible wind barriers and some of the larger ones can offer several feet of thick shade for your yard. Outside of their amazing practical uses, they also make classic looking property borders and impressive entryways when planted to lead up to your front door.

November Landscape & Garden Tips

Posted by Jessica Downs on 11/9/18 8:00 AM

Get your Yard Ready for the Winter Holiday Season

This is the time of year when the weather is finally beginning to change in Nevada and shifting into winter. Some trees are starting to change colors as they adjust to the cooler winter temperatures and others are pushing out new growth all over the place! One of the most overlooked practices this time of year by homeowners is watering and fertilizing. Maybe because of the cool weather and lower temperatures, you think less effort is needed but these are the perfect conditions to care for your yard. The November weather creates an environment that allows for the most efficient root growth (and foliage growth, depending on what type of plant you have in your yard). The weather changing also means that you must update your watering schedule to match those changes.
