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.
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.
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.
Many of us have put our health at the top of our New Year’s resolution list. We want to be active and eat healthier. A great way to work toward both of these resolutions is by having Quiet Village Landscaping design, install, and maintain an edible garden to keep your healthier resolution going strong through this spring and beyond!
