Adding to the list of caretakers~

Just finished ‘cleaning up’ an historical site in Bflo. Brought back memories of passing it by so many times over the years. Now I’ve added to the legacy.


Thinking of Adding A Water Feature?

Sometimes, simple is easier. But creating an environment around the feature so  it ‘fits in’ and does not look static is the challenge.

Here are some projects Jacrist has completed. Give us a call to see how we can help you~

How Much To Water?

Have you ever wondered how much water is actually getting on your lawn?

How much is enough?

Well, here’s an easy way to see~

Place old tuna fish or pet food cans in a straight line about 5 feet apart over the lawn when you water. You’ll easily be able to tell how much water has been used.

So how much should you use?

Most gardeners encourage watering until at least 1/2 inch of water collects in the can.

BTW, if you have planted new shrubs or trees this season, it is imperative especially in the extreme hot weather we have been and will continue to experience this upcoming week, to water the base of the plants well.  Hit the leaves as well as the base of the plant at least two-three times a week with larger droplets or if you have a nozzle, set to the shower setting.

Considering Landscape Lighting to Accent Your Yard?

If you are considering adding landscaping lights to accent your landscaping, why not consider these, Nekteck Landscaping Solar Lights?

Do You Have Ornamental Onions in Your Garden?

If you have the beautiful purple ornamental onion or Allium giganteum in your garden, you’ve probably noticed that the head has now gone to seed.



Either clip off the stem at the base and discard it or leave it alone and it will freely seed in other areas of your garden.
