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.

OCTOBER LANDSCAPE AND GARDENING TIPS

Posted by Jessica Downs on 10/5/18 8:00 AM

tips for Lawn Care and Plant Care 

The weather is just starting to cool down, that means it is now time to start taking care of your yard. The hot summer may have beaten your yard up a bit, so it needs to be brought back to good health and ready for the autumn weather! October is one of the best times of the year to rebuild a landscape or start a new project (or finish the one you started last spring!). Fall is also the best time of year to plant any trees, shrubs, and other plants you’ve had your eye on to improve your yard.

The Las Vegas area is finally getting cooler days and even cooler evenings. This is a welcomed relief from the blistering summertime heat, and relief for any home owner who has been avoiding the sun for months! While we can start to enjoy being outside more and working on our yard, the soil is still warm and will hold onto the heat for a while. This makes for a perfect environment to transplant any plants or trees and get maximum root growth potential and prepping it for long term success.
