Bring on the Trees

When it comes to landscaping, we can all agree that we prefer it to none. When we see a home or specific area, it is usually pretty obvious if the person maintaining the home cares about the way the outside looks. When a yard is beautifully landscaped then we are more likely to look at it. As a society, we like to have things that are beautiful to look at, and that includes our yards. We like knowing that compared to other things, we know how to keep a beautiful yard.

 

One thing that can be done when we are landscaping our home is to add trees. Here are some things from Lawn Starter, https://www.lawnstarter.com/blog/landscaping/fun-facts-about-trees, that you may not have known about trees:

 

  1. Trees balance out carbon dioxide and oxygen.
  2. Trees can talk to each other. This is usually done by the tree excreting chemicals to warn other trees about the insects.
  3. Trees can save money and energy. When the tree is properly placed it can save about 30% in both heating and air conditioning costs.
  4. Trees increase property value by about 10%.
  5. Larger trees can help to prevent crime
  6. There are trees in Utah that are 80,000 years old.
  7. The tallest recorded tree stands at an impressive 379.7 feet tall.

 

When it comes to landscaping, it is important that we are keeping our yards maintained. Having a beautifully landscaped home can really add value to your home. Trees are something that can be added to a yard, but there are other things that can be done. When it comes to your home, you are able to create walkways that are lined by different types of flowers, as well as add different shrubbery to your yard.

Things To Know About Landscaping

Landscaping in Las Vegas can be a great thing. When you look at all of the homes in Las Vegas it is nice to see that there are different types of landscaping all around. People have grass, rock, stone, sand, etc., in their yards all of which are helping to make the city more beautiful. While landscaping is everywhere, there are some things that you should know about landscaping.

 

Make sure that you have strong edging. Edging will keep certain things separate from one another, like grass and your garden, but it will also help to add dimension to your yard and make it look better.

 

Do not shy on the irrigation system. If you have grass and plants you need to make sure that they get enough water. Having a good watering system will help to keep your grass and plants alive. Just be sure to only water your grass according to the Water District. We are in a drought so it is important to save on water.

 

Mulch is your friend. Mulch is used to maintain the soil for your plants, but it also acts as decoration. Mulch will help to beautify your yard and plants. Also, the darker the mulch the more colorful your plants are going to be.

 

Be sure you are using good soil. If you are growing plants in your yard do not underestimate the benefits of using good soil. When you have good soil your plants will be able to take root and grow.

 

Stick with groups. When you group your plants together, typically in groups of three to five, it will help to make your yard look full. This will be more appealing to the eye, especially from people passing by.

 

Keep your yard colorful. When you are choosing plants that you want to have in your yard, you need to make sure that you are putting plants in your yard that bloom in all different times of the year. This will help to keep your yard looking colorful and alive.

 

Make sure that you have a good drainage system. The last thing that you want to do is have the beauty of your yard ruined because the water was not able to drain. When water sits in one area of your and drowns your plants. While it is important for your plants to get water, it is not good for them to be overwatered.

 

Remember sunlight is best. When you are landscaping your yard, and you are adding plants, you need to make sure that the plants are receiving enough sunlight. This will help your plants to flourish. Make sure that they are getting enough sun.

 

Remember to maintain your yard. When you are having your yard landscaped, it is important to keep in mind how much time or money you want to spend on maintaining your yard. If you want to make sure that your yard stays beautiful then you are going to have to put in the work. If you do not want to spend a lot of time mowing the grass or watering the plants, then you need to plan your landscaping accordingly.

 

 

When it comes to the landscaping of your yard, make sure that you know what you want. When you know what you want and can afford, then you will be able to start the project. Showcase Land Care can help you with all of your landscaping needs. Contact them today so that you can get started.

Tips To Maintain Grass During The Summer

 

Maintaining a beautiful yard is not always easy, especially if you have grass in your yard. During summer time in Las Vegas it can get very hot, which means your grass can suffer. The last thing that you want is to have your grass lose its color and start to die on you. There are some things that you can do in order to help maintain your grass during our very hot and dry summers.

 

DON’T CUT YOUR GRASS TOO SHORT

When the grass is cut too short your grass is not able to produce the energy for growth. If the grass is cut appropriately it will develop strong roots that are able to tolerate more stress.

 

FOLLOW THE 1/3 RULE

The 1/3 rule pertains to the height of your grass. It would be good to remember to not remove more than 1/3 of the grass height at a single time. By following this rule, your grass will be cooler.

 

TRY NOT TO OVER WATER

While many people believe that it is a good thing to water your grass every single day, or maybe even twice a day may not always be the best thing. You should keep in mind that it would be best to water deeply and infrequently. You would want the water to seep deep into the roots of the grass, but you do not want to overwater it. Only water the grass when it appears to be dry. This will not only help with the care of your grass, but it will also help to save you a little on your water bill.

 

KEEP THE BLADES SHARP

Make sure that when you mow your grass you are using sharp mower blades. When the grass is cut with sharp blades the grass will heal faster than if it were cut with a dull blade. Sharp grass blades will also help your grass to appear greener.

 

DON’T BAG GRASS CLIPPINGS

Grass clippings are actually beneficial to the lawn. They act as a slow-release fertilizer for the plant as they decompose. This will help the grass.

 

FERTILIZING AND CULTIVATION

During the summer it is not a good idea to fertilize your grass. Fertilizing will stimulate growth. This will take away energy from the grass and can cause more stress. During the hot summer days your grass is going to need all of the energy that it can get. You should also try to cultivate your lawn in the fall or spring when it is not as hot outside.

 

IMPORTANCE OF YEAR-ROUND HEALTH

If you can keep your grass healthy year round, then when it turns into summer your grass will have a better chance of surviving.

 

Maintaining your grass will be great for the overall health of your yard. It will also help to ensure that you can be proud of your yard. If you want good quality landscaping in Las Vegas, then Showcase Land Care can help to provide you with the type of yard that you want. Contact them today to get started.
