Below are topics and questions we answer often.
How much should I water new plants or sod?
New plantings: water each plant from a hose for a count of 5 or if using automated methods, water area for 20 minutes. Do this every other day for the first 2 weeks, then to twice a week for two weeks, then as needed. In very hot weather, more frequent is better. New sod: water sod with sprinkler or automated system each day for 20 min per zone at 5am. do this for the first 2 weeks, then every other day for 2 weeks, then as needed. In 90+ degree days, twice a day may be necessary for first two weeks.
Yes…we hear it all the time. Any landscape requires some level of maintenance. The more gardens you have, the more work required to keep them looking great. Contact us for a year-round calendar of landscape maintenance that you can do yourself, or have us preform Monthly Maintenance Visits like we do for about 40 other customers!
Can you plant with color all season?
Of Course! We have extensive experience and knowledge in horticulture and are able to create any color arrangements that mother nature provides.
What’s your warranty?
1 year post-installation on plant material, not including sod and ground covers

Do you have Insurance?

Are you licensed?
Currently, there is not a specific landscaping license required in our state. The only qualification in our industry that requires legal paperwork is retaining walls over 4 feet tall. This requires an engineered design and sign-off that we can provide for your project. For proof of insurance, please send request through contact page.
When is the best time to prune?
Pruning plant material when dormant (fall/winter) is best. For flowering shrubs, just after flowering period will promote flower bud growth for next flowering period. Generally, we preform pruning after new growth has come in – sometime in July. Perennials are best cut-down in the fall during Fall Clean-up, though some like to leave certain ones up (like grasses) for winter interest and habitat. For instruction on specific items, call or send a note via contact page.
Do you offer on-line bill payment?
At this time we do not offer payment online. We do accept payment by phone, credit card payment including: VISA, MasterCard and Discover; as well as check and cash payment.
Does water run uphill?
