Never forget, your lawn is a plant, too!

By | September 26th, 2017|Newsletters|Comments Off on Never forget, your lawn is a plant, too!

Even though we tend to take the lawn for granted, it is plant life that serves a purpose and needs our attention. Just 55 sq. ft. of lawn provides enough oxygen for one person to breathe all day long. Lawns keep our environment cooler and enjoyable throughout the summer. Fall, however, is when we need [...]

Fall into loving your lawn

By | September 1st, 2017|Newsletters|Comments Off on Fall into loving your lawn

The calendar may still say summer. But in Colorado, the thermometer will soon be saying fall-ish. Daily highs will be getting cooler as daylight hours get even shorter. Have you noticed the cooler nights? Right now, average night-time low temps are 6 or more degrees cooler than they were on August 1st. Cooler night-time lows [...]

August is a great time to prune trees

By | August 10th, 2017|Newsletters|Comments Off on August is a great time to prune trees

We often take trees for granted. We forget they are the most expensive part of our landscapes. And if we're not caring for them properly, we're not protecting our long-term investment. Many mature trees are worth thousands of dollars. As trees grow, they increase property value and add curb appeal.If a large tree dies, you [...]

Summer is here, Get ahead of the heat!

By | June 14th, 2017|Newsletters|Comments Off on Summer is here, Get ahead of the heat!

Now that we are starting to have temperatures of 80+ degrees, it is important that you are watering consistently and also at the right times. Please keep in mind that roads, sidewalks and rock beds are heat conductors. This will cause water to evaporate quickly and not get to the root systems where it is [...]

How to cope with a wishy-washy spring

By | May 19th, 2017|Newsletters|Comments Off on How to cope with a wishy-washy spring

Last week we were dodging golf-ball hail stones. This week has brought a change-up from sandals to snow boots. The latest weather extravaganza along the Front Range has left people and plants confused over whether spring will ever arrive. When Mother Nature gets wishy-washy in the springtime, what should we expect? Fruit trees will likely [...]

Winter Desiccation takes place when the turf grass plant is in its dormant or semi-dormant stages and can cause varying degrees of damage severity. All turf grass species are prone to winter desiccation if the right conditions persist.  Winter Desiccation occurs when the leaves and other parts of the turf grass plant are damaged often [...]

Help plants get back on track

By | May 9th, 2017|Newsletters|Comments Off on Help plants get back on track

Late spring snows, that occur after plants have sent up flowers or leafed out, generally leave damage or destruction in their wake. Heavy snows that cling to leaves and weigh down branches cause limbs to break, push tulips to the ground and can force petals to fall off. Shrubs have branches splayed open and some [...]

Draining Your Irrigation System

By | April 28th, 2017|Newsletters|Comments Off on Draining Your Irrigation System

I wanted to notify you of possible light overnight freezing in the near future.  I have attached a diagram on draining your irrigation system as well as an instructional video from YouTube. I am mainly concerned when overnight temperatures will be dipping below 30 degrees for an extended period of time.  Soil temperatures are still [...]

Spring is Here!

By | March 22nd, 2017|Newsletters|Comments Off on Spring is Here!

We haven’t had much of a winter this year.  The temperatures have been unseasonably warm (and record breaking), while the moisture has been well below average. Hopefully you have been doing some supplemental winter watering to protect you lawn, trees, and shrubs from winter desiccation. We checked soil temperatures last week, and it looks like [...]

We have water, but plants are still thirsty!

By | March 1st, 2017|Newsletters|Comments Off on We have water, but plants are still thirsty!

Here's another Colorado conundrum: the snowpack is at 142% of average and reservoirs are at 106% of normal--but at least 52% of our state is experiencing some level of drought. Temps in February have been well above normal statewide--as much as 16 degrees above normal in some areas. What does this mean? We'll have water [...]
