Each season of the year brings different landscape needs. The past few weeks, we've shared how to take care of your lawn in the fall as well as prepare it for the upcoming winter season. Now, it's time to turn our attention to other areas of your landscape like perennials. During this time of the year, it's a good time to relocate perennials. Here's why along with tips on how to relocate those perennials. Make sure you transplant fall-blooming perennials at least six weeks before a hard frost. Signs that it's time to divide your perennials include it's too large for its present space or it's crowding other plants. Fewer flowers or straggly-looking leaves also tell you it's time for relocating these perennials. The day before you plan to relocate the perennials, water them well and cut back any tall portions.  Then, for clumping perennials like asters, chrysanthemums, and day lilies, you'll need to dig them up completely before dividing them up. Spreading perennials like phlox and bee balm look more like individual plants so you can dig up the ones you want to move and choose to leave some where they are. There are also woody perennials like rosemary and lavender. These have one main stem so you will need to sever the plant to relocate part of it. Taproot perennials like Oriental poppies also have one main root that you will have to dig up so you can remove the portions you want to relocate. Be sure to be ready to move these perennials immediately to their new spot. Otherwise, be sure to leave them in shade and give them water until you are ready to replant. When you replant, dig a hole for the perennials that is wider than the root ball. Include organic matter and fertilize run the hole to help feed the perennials. After putting the perennials in the hole, fill it with soil and add more fertilizer. Lastly, water them and add mulch to help insulate the roots. These newly divided perennials won't look good until the next season. They need to get accustomed to their new home and take root before they can stand up and bloom once more. As you can see, relocating perennials can be a lot of work. Call us if you would like to get professional help in taking care of your commercial or residential landscape.

For those of us that work out in that heat, we know how we feel: wilted and dehydrated (if we are not careful). Just that feeling alone tells you why you should avoid planting trees and shrubs in the heat of the summer. Imagine how they must feel and then on top of that trying to get acclimated to new soil and put roots down. It's not a formula for successful planting. Instead, you may want to forego any planting until the heat of the summer diminishes and wait until the fall to provide a better opportunity for the trees and shrubs to get settled in before the winter weather arrives. This is an ideal time to rethink your commercial landscape and explore more drought-resistant plants. You may also want to consider a drip system or other water-friendly measures. Our commercial landscape designers can also work with you on redesigning your landscape to offer something different. Or, we can suggest other ways to protect your landscape from the heat and light intensity of the sun. This includes inspecting your irrigation system, mulching, and re-setting your watering scheduling.

It’s Not Too Late to Plant Shrubs

Garden shrubs can be both ornamental and practical. Many shrubs offer scented flowers and colorful foliage. However, shrubs also provide a great way to add privacy and hide anything unsightly around your commercial property like trash cans, air conditioner units, and more. That way, you can present a much more attractive landscape. There is still time this spring to plant shrubs around your commercial property. You can choose from a variety of methods for planting shrubs varies, depending on whether the shrubs you are planting have a burlap rootball or bare roots or they are being replanted from a container. Here are some ways to plant shrubs. First, you'll need to identify the most ideal locations around your commercial property for the shrubs. Select shrubs that thrive in your climate as well as find a location that meets the shrubs' needs for sun or shade, moisture, and soil composition. When picking a location, know how big the shrub will grow to ensure there is enough space. Remember that roots spread laterally so keep that in mind for planting location. Measure the height of the roots from the ground to the “root flare,” which is the part of the shrub at the base of the trunk where roots begin to spread out. Once you’ve measured the rootball, then dig out the soil and place it on a tarp.  After digging the hole for the shrub, fill it with water. Test to see how it drains by leaving the water for 24 hours. If it has drained away, then there is good drainage for the shrub. Place the shrub in the hole. Always move these shrubs by the roots rather than grabbing them the trunk or branches. The root flare should be at or slightly above the natural ground level. If it's wrapped in burlap, cut that and any string or wire from the root ball. Next, fill the hole gradually. Don’t add fertilizer, peat moss, or mulch at this point. Make sure there are no rocks or debris around the shrub. Water the shrub and allow the water to soak into the soil for several hours after you plant. From there, you'll water it approximately once per week. If you would prefer professional assistance with planting shrubs around your commercial property, contact us now to learn more!

Why Your Landscape May Need Renovation

Landscape maintenance is one thing, but your landscape may actually be in need of renovation. While landscape maintenance can help an area look tidier and trim, there are times when it may need more than mowing or weed removal. Maintenance involves mowing, fertilizing, pest control, pruning, trimming and weeding. Over time, though, that will not be enough as lawns, trees, and plants begin to grow quickly and crowd each other. Because it's constantly changing, you can't just maintain a landscape. You need to undertake landscape renovation. Now, it's time to think about restoring and revitalizing your lawn and flower beds.  This includes replacing, removing and upgrading plants for the season or providing a new look and feel to your commercial landscape.  Also, trees may have grown so much that their crowns need to be thinned or they are impacting concrete and parking lots so need to be removed.   Remulching also falls under landscape renovation to provide a nice appearance and good coverage against any weeds. Turf most definitely must undergo regular renovation. This is because lawns can become compacted so they need aeration and seeding. Other reasons for landscape renovation may be due to the need to create a more environmentally friendly landscape that uses little to no water. Upcoming special events or a new remodel to your commercial business may also signal the need for landscape renovation. Finally, Mother Nature also has a way of reminding us that there is a need for commercial landscape renovation. For example, storms, snow, ice, and flooding may require landscape cleanup and restoration. Be sure to plan out what you want to renovate with your commercial landscape before ripping everything out. Similar to home renovations, it costs less and goes smoothly when you plan everything in advance. Have a budget in mind to also ensure you make the financial decisions that are right for your business. Consider working with a professional commercial landscape company that has the knowledge, skill set, and experience to provide direction and guidance on what works for your commercial property and business budget.
