The Month of Love….ing to Work on Your Yard
It is officially February, and if you have lived in Southern Nevada long enough you should be familiar with the fact that spring is actually right around the corner for us. The last month brought us some cold temperatures, even a few freezing nights, but the days are getting warmer as the sun stays out a bit longer each day.
Apply Pre-Emergent Herbicides
Pre-emergent herbicide works by putting a chemical barrier down, in granular or liquid form, over the top of the soil. This will stop the weeds from germinating above the soil line. To reduce the number of weeds or eliminate them completely, a pre-emergent should be applied at least twice a year. We recommend applying in the beginning of spring and fall.
When planted around your home, trees can create a completely different environment than what you would have without them. Not only do trees around your home add massive shade to parts of your landscape, they can make the temperature drop and give you a cooler experience than your neighbor just right across the street. They can even keep the interior of your home cooler, which means less strain on your A/C unit.

Get a New Yard with New Trees for the New Year
We love planting trees all year long, no matter what time of the year it might be! It doesn’t hurt that we live in an amazing part of the country that lets us plant and care for our landscapes, even in the winter months! Along with the great weather, we also grow our own trees and palm trees, so we get to pamper them from the moment we plant the seedling on our farm to the day we plant the tree in your yard. Our trees and palms are always at optimal health and ready to be planted even during the colder months (“colder” for Las Vegas). Below is a list of what we consider the best cold-hardy trees to plant during the winter season. Check it out….
