Whether you bring them in big or start them off small, trees add a finishing touch to your landscape as they grow and mature. They can frame your property and add a sense of dimension. Their leafy canopies of deciduous trees provide shade when it’s hot and allow the sun to shine through in winter. And, in many cases, trees offer us colorful, fragrant collections of flowers, too.

How Long Can Grass Grow Without Water?

Posted by Troy Scott on 05 February

Homeowners who still have natural grass lawns worry that severe drought is always lurking. Mother Nature is unreliable, and the cost of water is skyrocketing. To further motivate us to conserve water, the State of California recently increased usage restrictions. Again. It’s hard to blame them, when you know that a residential lawn of just 700-1,000 square feet can use up to 56,000 gallons of water each year.

Drought Tolerant Landscaping Design

Posted by Troy Scott on 26 June

 

Drought tolerant landscaping is not the art of creating your own personal desert. It’s a design process that focuses on plants that can thrive with little water and hardscapes that help capture/retain moisture rather than allowing it to simply run off and be wasted. By following the same best practices professionals use, you can surround your home with landscaping that is both lovely and practical.

Drought Tolerant Bushes

Posted by Troy Scott on 25 June

Bushes have great value because they fill transitional space from tall trees to low-growing perennials and groundcovers. Bushes also give your garden a sense of enclosure which makes it feel more personal.

Unless you really love cactus (and, we admit, there are many attractive specimens), get that picture out of your head. Low water and true beauty are a combination made in landscape heaven.

Low Water Landscaping

Posted by Troy Scott on 05 June

 

Artificial grass has become the lawn of choice here in the Bay Area, for lots of reasons. Chief among them is the fact that natural grass lawns are by far the single-worst water wasters in residential yards. There is no excuse any more for watering lawns.
