Flowering quince is in bloom! It is one of my favorite shrubs. The scientific name is Chaenomeles japonica. Flowers are various shades of red, pink and white. It will grow in sun or shade but blooms better when planted in full sun.It is the first shrub to bloom each year.
I like to use this plant in cutting gardens or planted with an evergreen backdrop because it is deciduous. Flowering quince looks especially beautiful when cuttings are incorporated in an early spring indoor arrangement!~Shelly

The hottest trend in home gardening the past few years has to be container gardening. What better way to meet the requirements of today’s demands on time, space, long bloom and spectacular color with ease of care, than with pots filled with an assortment of great plants.
Some tips for container plantings:
Here are some examples of our work.
Being water wise benefits your landscape, environment, community, and budget. Outdoor residential irrigation accounts for as much as 60% of municipal water use in the summertime.
Occasional deep watering is better than frequent light watering. The amount of water to be used will vary tremendously from one site to the next depending on the soil, sun exposure and location. Consistency is the key.
A good rule of thumb for summer watering is one watering every third to fifth day for your landscape. Color plantings will require a bit more.
Obviously, rain, cloudy days, wind, drainage, type of watering, amount of water per time, and water bills all affect this schedule.
We can help you with any irrigation questions and concerns that you might have.
There are few things that bring more pleasure than the return of perennials each year. Perennials, as opposed to annuals, bloom year after year. Most perennials disappear during the winter and grow up again in the spring. There are, in fact, so many varieties of perennials that you are sure to find the perfect design selections for your garden.
Perennials do take some patience initially as it will take a year or two before they are established and blooming in your garden. The reward of watching your lovely perennials bloom year after year is well worth the wait.
When designing your garden, there are several things to consider, such as blooming season, spacing, textures, layering by height, sunlight requirements and complimentary colors. Most perennials come in a variety of vivid colors making it easy to create a beautiful tapestry.
Among the most interesting and useful perennial plants are some of our Texas natives. Salvia, Gaillardia, Coreopsis and Penstemon are notable examples.
If you are looking to enhance the vibrancy of your garden give us a call today to learn more about perennials and where you can enjoy them most in your landscape plan!

Are you looking for cost-effective yet eye-pleasing ways to lower your energy bills? Planting trees, shrubs, vines, grasses, and hedges could be the answer. In fact, landscaping may be your best long-term investment for reducing heating and cooling costs, while also bringing other improvements to your community.
A well designed landscape will:
You may have noticed the coolness of parks and wooded areas compared to the temperature of nearby city streets. Shading and evapotranspiration from trees can reduce surrounding air temperatures as much as 9 degrees. Because cool air settles near the ground, air temperatures directly under trees can be as much as 25 degrees cooler than air temperatures above nearby blacktop. A well-planned landscape can reduce an un-shaded home’s summer air-conditioning costs by 15-50%.
Widespread tree planting and climate-appropriate landscaping offer substantial environmental benefits. Trees and vegetation control erosion, protect water supplies, provide food, create habitat for wildlife, and clean the air by absorbing carbon dioxide and releasing oxygen.
