Since 2001, Quiet Village has been providing complete lawn mowing and yard maintenance services in St. Louis. With that experience comes best practices that we follow to ensure your lawn stays well maintained and lush all season long. One of our most frequently asked questions is “When are you coming to mow my yard?”.
The short answer is that we try to maintain a regular schedule of lawn maintenance, but that doesn’t always happen. Here’s why.
Lawn care goes beyond just cutting your grass when it gets too long. Mow smarter this year with our expert tips on maintaining a healthy lawn, year round!
Dry conditions in the St. Louis-area are expected to continue, making it urgently important to take action by thoroughly watering trees and shrubs. This is especially important for newly planted trees or evergreens.
Add fresh mulch this winter for happy plants!
Every winter St. Louis experiences freezing temperatures, which can damage plants.
So, while most of us only think of mulching our yard and plant beds in the spring and summer to keep unwanted weeds at bay and to retain moisture, there are useful reasons to perform winter mulching too.
Backyard ponds or in-ground water gardens are a great way to add interest to your landscape and help support local wildlife. Garden ponds can also be benificial for growing specific types of plants, flowers, and even creating habitats for fish or amphibians.
It can be easy to forget that our landscape plants need to be fed (just like our lawns!). Finish off your landscaping maintenance plan for 2017 strong, by giving your trees and shrubs what they need to continue to grow and thrive in St. Louis – a deep root feeding, best performed in fall!
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.
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.
