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.

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!
Besides enjoying pumpkin-spiced everything and thinking about what you’ll be for Halloween this year, fall is a great time to give your lawn an extra boost to make it through the upcoming winter months.
Summer ’16 in St. Louis is coming to an end, and it’s time to start preparing your plants for the cooler temperatures that are on the way. While fall isn’t exactly the most exciting time of year for gardeners, there are still exciting things to be done in your own home garden!
Early autumn is an ideal time to perform a lawn renovation at your St. Louis-area property. Renovating your lawn can be especially effective when paired with our 6-step fertilization program. Our lawn renovation process transforms your lawn space from a weedy, patchy mess to a lush, green carpet.
