Winter is Coming
Here are a few simple things you can do to help your landscape hibernate.
  • Leave the bag off the mower and keep mowing until the grass stops growing and goes dormant. This mulching process will increase the organic matter in the soil.
  • Remove debris from around plants to prevent damaging animal nesting.
  • Apply a layer of mulch in planting beds will help retain moisture and regulate soil temperature.
  • Don't forget to bring those frost susceptible plants indoors!

Have you Winterized your Irrigation and Ponds?

Call us before that freezing weather arrives and minimize your risk of freeze damage. We also provide spring start-ups.
Learn A Plant- Beautyberry
In this new segment we take a closer look at Callicarpa japonica, commonly known as Beautyberry. With a hardiness range of zone 5-8, it does very well here in zone 6 Indiana. Native to far east Asia this deciduous shrub gets it's name from the showy bright violet fruit that ripens in late summer and holds on after leaf drop. Small pinkish white flower clusters bloom in June. Callicarpa has a rounded form with arching branches and grows about 4-6 ft. tall and wide. A very hardy plant that roots quickly. Deer tend to prefer other delicacies but recovers well from any form of pruning. Attracts birds and prefers well drained soils of medium moisture. Plant in groups in full sun to partial shade. 
he world's favorite season is the spring. All things seem possible in May." - Edwin Way Teale
