Happy Fall, Ya’ll!
It’s that time of year again, when the St. Louis landscape transforms from lush green to vibrant shades of camel, sandstone, and rust. Around this time of the year is when our landscaping clients begin calling us, to get their City’s specific leaf or lawn debris collection schedule.
In July, the Quiet Village Landscaping team joined the Landscape & Nursery Association of Greater St. Louis on a behind-the-scenes landscaping and grounds tour of Busch Stadium in Downtown St. Louis.
Besides keeping plants well-watered while temps are high, now is the perfect time to look ahead to fall and fall-planted bulbs! We’re now offering pre-order opportunities for popular Mums, Tulips, and Daffodils now, to get vibrant colors added to your landscape this autumn and next spring.
Summer in St. Louis is in full swing, and many pet owners are getting a glimpse of some of the problems that can be caused by our four-legged friends being active in the backyard – digging, jumping, running (in the same spots!), and yes, even pooping can take their toll on yard areas with grass.
4th of July BBQ’s and backyard parties are just around the corner in St. Louis and so far this year, we’ve been busy creating the outdoor paradise that our clients have been dreaming of.
Gardening doesn’t have to be complicated. This spring, embrace your inner green thumb by introducing a few simple gardening hacks that are easy to learn and remember throughout the growing season.
For most homeowners, the backyard isn’t the main focus for their home design plans. However, this can become an advantage when it comes to outdoor living spaces. By the time many of us consider the backyard, we’ve already developed a strong sense of own unique décor personality.
Recently, we’ve seen an increase in attention focused on the plight of pollinators, in particular the honeybee. Honeybees are extremely important agricultural pollinators, while other native bees are also seeing population declines. The Rusty Patched Bumblebee is native to the Upper Midwest and was just added to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Services endangered list. Many people have been asking us what they can do to help support local St. Louis-area bee, butterfly, and other pollinator populations.
With spring right around the corner, what better way to get ready for warmer days and outdoor entertaining fun than by planning your outdoor living space? Whether you have an expansive yard or a tiny backyard area to work with, you can bring outdoor style to your home.
