Perennials, trees and shrubs have been effected by this spring’s dramatic temperature changes. Blooms have sprouted only to be damaged by frost. If you think you have a plant that has died, just monitor it for the next few weeks. They should be coming to life soon!
It’s so nice to see some beautiful blooms after that long winter! Blossoming flowers symbolize the start of the season for us, and remind us that we have many months ahead to enjoy the beauty of the gardens we work with. Does the beginning of Spring have you thinking about your own garden? Whether your landscape needs a little updating, some cleaning up or a complete renovation we are here to help! Schedule an appointment with our very own Carlos Montano (Horticulturist and Partner) for a professionally designed landscape full of diversity that you can enjoy all year long!

Now that the hot summer temperatures are winding down, it is the perfect time to redesign your landscape! When you plant in the end of summer or fall you don’t have to worry about watering as much! Cooler temperatures and less exposure to sunlight helps the plants retain moisture better! Some people worry that planting at the end of season puts the plants at risk during the winter, but as long as the plants have an established root system before the first frost, they will make it through the winter without a problem!

When designing your landscape project, it is important to maintain a wide variety of textures, colors, sizes and shapes in both your hardscape and softscape material. This creates a well-planned and eye-catching look that maintains interest. In the picture above, we have chosen to incorporate neutral toned brick pavers for the walkway and steps, with a mix of natural stone for accent pieces and additional stepping stones. The chosen plant material consists of a wide variety of textures, heights, shapes and colors with various blooming seasons. This creates a sense of fullness, warmth and diversity in the surrounding flower beds. To get the most out of your landscape project, it is important to consult with a professional landscape designer. Give us a call today, and schedule your free consultation!
When a hardscape design is put together, a lot of times the surrounding softscape is an afterthought to the landscape designer/architect.

Our partner, Carlos Montano, personally designs each one of our landscape designs himself. Not only is he certified in CAD and 3D hardscape design, but he also has a degree in Horticulture, which gives him the knowledge base and skill set needed to create unique hardscape designs surrounding by a beautiful and well-planned landscape.
