News & Tips

Best of Northern Colorado

Thanks for voting us the best landscape design/build company in Northern Colorado, again.

Wildlife in your landscape

Did you know that your landscape can support wildlife?

Gifts for the plant lover

Last Sunday was National Poinsettia Day. Poinsettias are a great gift for this time of year.

Decorate planters for winter

If you’ve got some big planters in your landscape, they don’t have to stay empty and boring this winter.

Appreciate your Landscape

Over the last couple of years, many of us have spent more time than ever in our yards. When you were giving thanks last week, we hope that you spent a moment appreciating all that your landscape does for you.

Water your landscape

The Front Range continues to experience drought conditions. To avoid winter drought stress, we need to water our landscapes.

Company Christmas Party!!

Last week we celebrated Christmas with an amazing party at Ginger & Baker

Time for tool care

Are your garden tools ready for winter? Take some time now to clean them up and protect them from the elements. You’ll thank yourself next spring when they are ready and waiting when it’s time to get into the garden again.

Do your trees need a blanket?

Were you one of the many people who planted new trees during the pandemic? If you’ve got a young tree with thin bark, you should consider wrapping it for the winter.

Did you plant bulbs yet?

If you haven’t planted bulbs yet for next spring, there may still be time.

Care for your trees

It takes a little effort to help your landscape ease into the fall and winter.

Compost now for spring

If you took a cue from last week’s tip and mulched your leaves, you might have some extra leaf mulch in your yard. Or maybe you cleaned up your garden and have some plant material left over. You can turn those piles of yard waste into “black gold” by composting them for use next spring.

Mulch your leaves

Don’t hurt your back bagging leaves. There’s a better way--you might even be able to avoid raking altogether

Stay out later

Imagine yourself relaxing on the terrace with a mug of tea or apple cider as you enjoy the cooler nights of autumn in Colorado.

Get ready for fall

It’s a good time to put in some work to help your landscape stay healthy as it heads into dormancy for the winter. It's still warm, but autumn begins next week and we look forward to cooler days ahead. A little care now will help make your lawn hardier so that it will return next spring as vibrant as ever.

Time for a color change

Last week we talked about planting now for next spring. If you want some seasonal color now, try a fall-themed container garden.

Add more plants

The hottest days of the summer are over, and things should be cooling down soon. It’s a good time to add plants to our landscapes.

Pet-friendly landscapes

Last week we had National Dog Day--a good time to think about how to keep our four-legged friends safe while maintaining our landscapes.

Start late-season crops now

Want your harvest to continue into the fall? Start some leafy greens, herbs, broccoli and root crops now.

Heat and smoky skies continue

Record-breaking high temperatures aren’t the best conditions for growing vegetables. The heat, and smoke from wildfires, aren’t good for the gardener, either. Take care of your garden and yourself with these tips.

Battle the Bugs

Recent hot days and precipitation are a perfect combination for insects in our gardens and landscapes. Keep an eye on your garden, especially edible plants, and act on pests as soon as you spot them.

It's good to be a drip

When your faucet drips, it wastes water. But when your irrigation drips, it could be using water wisely. Drip irrigation uses a low pressure, low volume method of applying water directly to the base of plants or at the roots.

Lose the Lawn Bag

Emptying your grass catcher can be a hot, messy job in the heat of summer. Save yourself the work and improve your landscape in the process by grasscycling. Leaving your grass clippings on the lawn helps return nutrients to the soil and reduce evaporation from the soil.

Save water, save money

Water-efficient sprinklers, smart controllers, and low-maintenance plants help you conserve water and save time on maintaining your landscape. Using less water can save you money, too, after the initial investment. You may also be eligible for rebates to offset that initial investment as well.

The Heat is On

The Front Range is hot right now, and your plants might be feeling it a little too much. Here are a few tips for helping your landscape cope with high temperatures and sun.

Slower is smarter

Smart technology can help you save money, conserve water, and keep your landscape looking great. As we kick off Smart Irrigation Month, we’ve got a tip for using technology to do just that: water slowly.

Try native grasses

Turf serves an important purpose: it provides recreation areas for adults, kids, and pets alike. But native grasses bring a character all their own, with the added bonus of being low-water and low-maintenance once established. Ornamental grasses can also provide height, varying texture, movement, and year-round interest. Consider adding them to your landscape this year.

Bees get thirsty too

This week is Pollinator Week, when we celebrate all that the many types of pollinators—bees, butterflies, birds, bats, flies and more—do for us. It’s a good time to think of ways you can support your local pollinators. Remember that when it’s hot outside, pollinators get thirsty too.

Cycle and soak

As temperatures rise, you may be tempted to run your sprinkler longer. But resist that temptation, and instead practice cycle-and-soak watering. It’s an efficient way to keep your landscape healthy and be sure that none of your watering goes to waste.

Five benefits of mulch

One way to save water and dress up the landscape in the process is to top dress bed areas with mulch. And there is nothing better to use than fresh, 100% organic wood mulch.

Plant some sunshine

There’s still time to plant some sunflowers in your landscape. The National Garden Bureau named 2021 the Year of the Sunflower, and with good reason. This cheerful plant is always a popular cut flower, and it’s rather easy to grow.

Prep for hail

Late spring is hail season in Colorado. It's good to know what precautions you can take ahead of time and what you can do for plants after hail has dealt its blows.

Keep weeds in check

What is a weed? It’s any plant that grows where we don’t want it. Often they are non-native, potentially invasive plants that can outgrow and crowd out the plants we put in our landscape on purpose.

Give a gift that lives on

Cut flowers fade and die soon after gifting them. Why not give Mom—or any special person in your life—a gift that will give them joy for more than a week?

Train your turf

A little tough love now will benefit your lawn throughout the growing season. Springtime is when grass grows its feeder roots that will capture water all season long. Later it will grow more blades, then store nutrients for winter.

Order bugs to control weeds

Bindweed might look like a miniature version of morning glory, but it is a nuisance that seems like it can take over a garden almost overnight. It is very difficult to control once established in your landscape.

Avoid these 5 lawn care mistakes

A healthy lawn not only looks great, but it can prevent erosion, cool the local environment and filter pollutants from air and water. To enjoy all of those benefits, avoid these five mistakes.

Need spring color right now?

After recent snows gave them a dose of moisture, and with temperatures heating up along the Front Range, early spring bulbs are popping up in landscapes and giving us a hint of the color to come. Crocuses, hyacinths, even some daffodils and tulips can be spotted in gardens and flower beds.

Get ready for the growing season

Itching to get out and work in the yard? Planting time really is just around the corner. While you wait until the threat of freeze is over, there are plenty of ways to prepare for the growing season.

Ergonomic gardening

Gardening and landscape care can be a healthy hobby that helps us get outdoors and moving around. But proper form is important to avoid discomfort or injury.

Sustainable landscapes

It’s too early to start planting, but it's a good time to make a plan for a successful landscape this year. Recent heavy snowfall was much-needed, but it has not eliminated drought in the state, so be sure that your landscape plans are strategic and water-wise.

Spring Blizzard 2021

Northern Colorado had a Blizzard this week that dropped up to 30" of snow in Northern Colorado.

Protecting plants from heavy snowfall

It’s still winter—spring officially begins March 20—and heavy snowfall predicted this weekend is a reminder that despite the change in season, March is historically Colorado’s snowiest month.

Children benefit from gardening

Children who grow their own vegetables are five times more likely to eat them, according to a 2015 study.

Ice melt safety

Snow and ice can wreak havoc on our sidewalks and pathways, but responsible use of ice melt is important for people, plants, and pets.

Plan now for spring

After the recent deep freeze, it’s hard to believe that spring is just a month away. While you’re staying warm indoors, it’s a good time to plan your landscape for warmer months. Demand is high and we are already booking up, so get on our calendars now.

Protect Your Plants

When the forecast predicts overnight temperatures in the single digits, are your plants protected?

Soil is more than dirt

If you’re building a house, you need a solid foundation. The same goes for building a landscape. Soil serves as the foundation, so it pays to focus on creating a quality foundation if you want a healthy landscape.

Know your zone

It’s often said that the key to successful, sustainable plants is putting the right plant in the right place. But first, you need to know your place. That begins by learning your hardiness zone while you plan your landscape.

Your trees are thirsty

Trees are one of the most valuable assets in a landscape. With ongoing drought in Colorado, winter watering is more important than ever to preserve your investment. It’s a good rule of thumb to water your trees twice per month in winter.

Order now for spring

Winter officially began just a few weeks ago, but it’s already time to think about what you want in your garden this summer.

Winter Lawn Care

Dry conditions across Colorado mean you’ll need to drag out the hose and sprinkler and water your landscape this winter.

Plants of the year

The National Garden Bureau once again chose five plants of the year.

Winter plant care

Plants are a great living gift during the holidays. Be sure you know how to adjust indoor plant care during the winter, and your houseplants will keep bringing you joy well into the new year.

Safe holiday decorating

Live plants are a beautiful addition to your holiday décor. Wreaths of evergreen, eucalyptus, or herbs add a touch of nature and fragrance to your home, and the scent of a fresh evergreen tree really adds to the Christmas ambiance.

Trendy color for your landscape

This week, Pantone® announced that it had chosen two colors for 2021 Color of the Year. Pantone chose them as colors of a solid foundation (Ultimate Gray, reminiscent of rock or concrete) and of cheerfulness and hope (Illuminating’s sunny yellow).

Safe holiday lighting

Some households are celebrating the end of a challenging year by putting on spectacular light displays for the holidays. If you’re planning your own holiday light show, keep safety in mind.

Repurpose before you compost

Before you go shopping for holiday bric-a-brac, check out what Mother Nature has left in your yard.

Gardening indoors

The backyard garden may be finished for the season, but you can keep your green thumb in shape with an indoor herb garden this fall and winter.

Wrap and water your trees

November is a good time to think about wrapping your vulnerable trees for the winter. If you planted a new tree this fall or have a young tree in your landscape, wrapping it can protect your trees from winter damage.

Water by the thermometer, not the calendar

Fall is a critical time for lawn care and moisture.

Prepare for snow

Along the Front Range, snow is in the weekend forecast. We’ve already seen temperatures dipping pretty low at night this week, so you should already have prepared your irrigation system.

Did you plant spring bulbs yet?

This fall’s mild temperatures give us an opportunity to plant now for a beautiful landscape next year. It’s a good time to get bulbs into the ground for spring color.

Turn on the lights

The days are getting shorter, but it’s still warm enough to enjoy our outdoor living areas. Fewer hours of daylight shouldn’t keep you from enjoying your landscape. Outdoor lighting can keep the party going and allow you to spend quality time on your patio through the fall.

Compost your yard waste

As the growing season winds down and you prepare your landscape for winter, you may find yourself with a lot of yard waste. Instead of bagging it and tossing it into the garbage, why not make that yard waste continue to benefit your plants by composting?

Plant pansies now

Our days may still be hot, but autumn is officially here. Fall is a good time to plant, but for fall color it’s best to choose plants that can withstand a chill.

Fall turf care

As we head into fall, take some time to change up your lawncare routine to help it continue to serve you well next year.

Gardening season isn't over yet

Despite the extremely cold temperatures in the forecast over the next 48 hours, gardening isn't over yet.

Care For Thirsty Trees

Trees are also the most expensive plant investment in our yards and consequently, the most expensive to replace.

Are your vegetables too hot?

This growing season has had more than its share of heat-filled days. Super-hot days don't always grow the best veggies.

Protect your turf and leaves

Japanese beetles have descended upon many Front Range communities.
