Our website is currently under construction, and the plant database is temporarily down. Coming soon, you will be able to search water-efficient plants within our database for specific characteristics like sun exposure, water use, and bloom time. Please check back later for the upgraded plant search tool.
Get your yard ready for the winter with these fall tips
Plant trees and Shrubs: After a long cold winter, start of by conducting a thorough check of your sprinkler system. Many leaks are easily missed or are overlooked but even the smallest leak can waste thousands of gallons and cause a lot of damage.
Winterize your sprinklers: Each fall remember to shut off the water and get the water out of your sprinkler system. This will help to avoid damage to pipes, sprinklers, valves, and your property.
Fertilize and aerate your lawn: Fall is the most important time for fertilization and weed control. Applying high nitrogen, fast release fertilizer in the fall will give you a great head start next year. Also, apply a good pre-emergent to help keep weeds from growing next spring.
Adjust your mower height: By lowering your mower to around 2" will help slow the spread of winter-active fungal diseases such as snow mold. It also helps to remove leaf liter from the lawn.
