A fast grower that can spread 12" wide and 1-2 inches tall. When spaced properly, Turkish Speedwell can be used to create a beautiful sea of blue between flagstone patios or pathways.

Today, we take a look at a property that had a gravel walkway lined with bricks and wild vegetation for the front yard. Our clients wanted something lush but low maintenance with a clear cut flagstone pathway from the gate to the front door. We started by removing the gravel pathway and brick, then worked our way through removing all the wild vegetation. The dirt was raked and leveled out. Next, we planted pink Texas Sage, Catmint, Blue Mist Spirea, Russian Sage and Mugo Pine
Q: I was looking at my aspen trees and noticed large webbing on a few branches. What is that and what do I do? A: Tent caterpillars are terrible pests that can quickly eat the leaves of any tree they appear on. There is usually between 150-400 eggs in the egg-sac; those eggs quickly mature into adults within 6 weeks. They leave behind unsightly webs and are a major nuisance. You will need to contact a tree company since we do not spray chemicals in trees. If you prefer to do

Our clients had two simple requests: vines growing above the wall for privacy and flagstone steps to connect the front yard and the backyard. We designed a low maintenance, yet colorful and lush xeric yard for the client to enjoy. A dry river bed was placed to ensure all the water over flowing from the rain barrels would be transported outside of the yard. Trumpet vines and wisteria were used to create the privacy the client desired. A clump of aspens were planted in the corn
Q: I want landscape lighting in my backyard but I don’t know where to start. Do you design and install landscape lighting? A: We sure do! The type of landscape lights will depend on what you are looking to accomplish. A spot/flood light can give water features, trees and other focal points a dramatic appearance at night. Path lights can illuminate pathways and patio areas so you can easily see where you are walking and adds a touch of elegance to your yard. A combination of b
Perovskia atriplicfolia - Zone 4-9 Also known as Russian Sage, clusters of wispy lavender-blue flowers cover tall, white stems to create a unique shrub that will add a distinct beauty to any yard. Plant in full sun and water regularly for best growth. A moderate grower that can reach 4 feet tall. This plant sends out clone shoots (a.k.a. suckers) that can quickly spread the plant into unwanted areas. If a tidy look is desired pull or clip the clone shoots as soon as they pop
Our client wanted the same relaxing, welcoming yard as the front but with more plants. We started off with removing the old the flagstone patio and saved some pieces for the pathway. We planted thyme just like the front and kept the plants and design quite similar (yarrows, catmint and coneflowers), but added some lavenders, agastache and aspens. The added height from the aspen allows the yard to feel larger. Our client wanted an apple tree right next to the water feature - w
