The heat is on

heat is on

The Front Range is hot right now, and your plants might be feeling it a little too much. Here are a few tips for helping your landscape cope with high temperatures and sun.

  • The best defense is a good offense
  • The best way to help your plants survive Colorado’s altitude, intense sun, cold winters, and hot summers is to select plants that like to live here. If you are adding or replacing plants this year, look for low-water plants that work best in our conditions. Native plants are a great choice, and may even be better suited to withstand the temperature swings, hail, and other extreme weather events we see each year in the state.
  • Right plant, right place
  • The location of your plants is also important to consider. Any plants that face south or west and get a lot of sun will need more water. With containers, make sure they are in a good potting soil that retains moisture throughout the day.
  • Don’t worry too much
  • If your plants are wilting, that doesn’t necessarily mean they are dying. Plants will wilt either because they need moisture or because it’s their coping mechanism to conserve moisture during the heat of day. If you look at the same plant at night that was wilted during the day, it may be back to normal. Resist the urge to overwater. To know if the plant really needs water, check the soil with a screwdriver probe. If the soil is dry 2” into the soil, it needs water.
  • Mulch for moisture
  • Make sure you have wood mulch or even grass clippings on the soil to retain moisture—the added benefit is that this will help control weeds.
  • Make sure our plants don’t dry out while you’re on vacation
  • If you don’t already have a smart irrigation system, you can buy a timer to make sure your plants get the water they need while you’re gone. Drip irrigation is very useful for consistent moisture. Talk with a landscape professional about how to create a watering system that works for your landscape and can keep it properly watered while you’re away.

5 Tips to Create and Maintain a Beautiful Yard

A beautiful garden or a lush green lawn enhances the visual appeal of the property. It provides you a space in the lap of nature, where you can de-stress and spends quality time with your family and friends.

Maintaining a great-looking lawn requires dedicated efforts, regular care and troubleshooting problems in an expert way as they arise.

Here are five secrets of irrigation and sprinkler system that will help you maintain your yard in the best way possible.

  1. Water Your Lawn Properly: A beautiful lawn requires periodic watering. When it comes to watering your lawn, you should consider the right time of the day, the proper amount of water and frequency of watering. Considering the weather conditions, you should water your lawn in the early morning and fewer times to a depth of 4-6 inches for the development of a healthy root system.

  2. Learn How to Tune Up Your Manual or Automatic Sprinkler System: An efficiently designed and well-tuned sprinkler system saves 30-50% of water. You need to check your sprinkler system and ensure that there are no crooked or clogged heads, broken lines, leaks, and proper coverage by your heads.

  3. Get Sprinkler Shut-Down and Winterization Service from Expert: Shutting down your irrigation system by the first week of November and preparing it for winter months (Winterization) to prevent freeze damage would require availing services of an expert and licensed technician.

  4. Upgrade Your Old Sprinkler with a Smart Controller: If you are using a conventional in-ground sprinkler system with the existing controller then it is high time to replace the timer with the new, smart controller. This will set the watering time as per the weather conditions and details about your yard. This will save a considerable amount of money on your watering bill.

  5. Use Moisture Manager to Reduce Your Watering Bill to Half: BestYard’s new water-saving technology Moisture Manager can help you reduce your water bill up to 50 per cent, prevents diseases and help maintain a healthy lawn. The moisture manager is actually using patented tiny granules of a wetting agent that attract water molecules out of the air and surface areas and deliver moisture to your lawn’s root system for 3 months.

Pretty Plants That Don’t Guzzle Water

lantana flower

In Colorado, we love our landscapes and we are spending more time outdoors where we can enjoy them. With so much of our state in drought conditions and under water restrictions, we are reminded we need to look for plants that are easy to grow, can handle summer heat – and don’t need a lot of water.

If you are looking for more water-wise ideas for what to plant this year, here are some plants you might want to bring home to your yard.

Annuals for patios and porches

Our porches and patios don’t seem complete without a container or two of annual flowers. Group plants in a few large containers rather than many small ones. The bigger the container, the bigger the soil volume and that means you won’t need to water as often.

Place a large saucer under the container. It will not only protect wood decks from water damage, but collect water that runs through the container to be absorbed by the plant later.

Next, slow down evaporation by adding mulch to containers just as you would in bed areas. Mulch helps the soil retain moisture longer, meaning you need to water less often.

Top suggestions for low-water annuals include:

Lantana (pictured), Portulaca (moss rose), low water varieties of Verbena and our standby seasonal flower, Petunia. All offer instant impact in a wide variety of colors. Annuals need a week or two with a little more water to get established, and thereafter, only about ½ to ¾ inch of water per week based on the weather.

Perennials

Perennials groupsWater-wise perennials need more water during their first growing season to become established, but in following growing seasons require much less water. All the hardy, low-water plants listed below offer color and interest in the landscape and have low water needs once established.

 

  • Oenothera Silver Blade – Evening primrose
  • Sedum Blue Spruce
  • Berlandiera Chocolate Flower
  • Gaillardian Goblin – Blanket flower
  • Salvia Blue Bill – Meadow sage
  • May Night Meadow Sage
  • Wild Thing Rose
  • Perovskia Blue Steel

If you’re not familiar with these varieties, take the list to the garden center or do a quick Google search by name to see photos and learn more about each plant.
