This transformation is the perfect example of how transformative a hardscape can be to a yard. The client reached out and told us that they had a slope in their yard that they didn’t know what to do with. They wanted to look at that area and say "wow, this is our yard!". The design included a terraced area that would preserve both the Juniper at the lower end of the slope and the Austrian pine on top of the slope, yet flatten out each level of the yard. The first step in thi
Darlow's Enigma Rose
Rosa Darlow's Enigma
Zone 5-9 Although this has typical foliage for a rose, the blooms are everything but typical. Fragrant, white flat blooms (single row), with bright gold centers. Blooms in clusters. Plant in full sun for best growth. Can reach 8' tall and 4' wide. Long bloom time from early summer to fall. Beautiful red rose hips in the fall. Tolerates low amounts of water.
The final transformation of this property is a simple but much-needed change. The client wanted a flagstone patio, not only for its look but for its function. At the time, they had a covered porch but wanted to be able to sit outside and look at the stars at night time and get-togethers, as well as get a little bit of sun during morning brunches. The first step in this transformation might sound a little familiar at this point…remove the weeds and native grass. Rather than b
Q: I heard watering your plants before a freeze can help protect them. Is this true? A: Although there have been studies that show watering your plants before a LIGHT freeze may help protect them from the cold, watering your plants before a hard freeze will damage them and possibly kill them. We do not recommend either!
Juniperus sabina var. tamariscifolia
Zone 4-7 If you are interested in a semi-low growing evergreen that is easy to maintain, the Tam Juniper is a perfect choice. Tolerates a wide variety of soil types. Plant in full sun for best growth. A moderate grower that can reach 2.5' tall and 15' wide. Water regularly until established, then water occasionally. Easy to care for. Soft green foliage creates mounds and does not hug the ground.
Q: Can I leave my battery-operated irrigation system on during the winter? A: This is a big no-no. Whether it is battery operated or not, all irrigation systems need to be shut down in order to prevent costly repairs.
Zone 5-9 The textured/wrinkled foliage on this shrub will add nice character to your yard before it even blooms! This moderate grower can reach 15' tall and wide, so make sure you have the room for it! Blooms creamy white, cascading clusters of fuzzy flowers in spring and summer that add a weeping look to the shrub. Blooms have a sweet fragrance. Does best when planted in shade to part shade. Water regularly until established. Easy to care for.
Q: Best pest prevention methods for my plants? A: If you want the absolute best pest control for your plants, you are going to want to use a systemic pesticide. This needs to be applied at regular intervals during the growing season.
