Community Food Bank

gardening_az_sahuarita_greenvalley

As a family that has grown up in the Town of Sahuarita, we have always wanted to find ways in giving back to the community. We knew that once our business began to grow, we wanted to make a point in giving back to a community that has always been there for those who are in need. We joined a wonderful Community Garden effort that is located at Anamax Park off of La Canada. The garden was established to create connections, community, and to give back to a local food bank. We knew that this was something that we could greatly help with, and are so very glad that we did!

This morning we harvested our first lot of cabbage (mostly), lettuce, and some broccoli. We were even more excited that this was something that we could share with our son, who also decided to EAT and ENJOY his very first piece of lettuce, who knew? It was a wonderful feeling to be able to provide a little something that is fresh and grown for someone who really needs it. We hope that this inspires someone to join in a community garden, and donate to a local food bank.

For questions in how you can donate to the Sahuarita Food bank, visit their website at http://www.sahuaritafoodbank.org for directions and contact information!

AZ weed control

What is a weed? The definition of a weed per Merriam-Webster is (1) a plant that is not valued where it is growing and is usually of vigorous growth; especially  :  one that tends to overgrow or choke out more desirable plants  (2)  :  a weedygrowth of plants. In Arizona we encounter many different types of weeds from bull thistle (Cirsium vulgare) to spurge. A great list for common weeds found in AZ is available HERE.

Weeds in general are not very nice to look at, especially in a master planned community, or at a place of business. They are also a cause for a lot of alleges that can affect friends, neighbors, and customers. Some folks have a hard time with seasonal allergies, and with the winds blowing it can help the seed spread and become a worse problem in the future. When weeds become large and out of control they become a place for unwanted critters to roam freely.

There are many different ways to take care of the pesky weeds, and to maintain a beautiful weed free yard!

The first way is to manually pull the weeds as you see them come up. This is not only cost effective, but it is also a great way to get outdoors, exercise, and meet the community. Many people also choose to pull the weeds to refrain from using a chemical treatment, which can become costly overtime as well.

The second way would be to chemically treat the weeds to prevent them from germinating, this is known as a pre-emergent. There are “seasons” if you will that will allow the pre-emergent to activate properly. There are laws, regulations, standards, and ordinances that landscape companies must and should follow with the application of herbicides in urban landscapes, as with master planned communities who spray the chemical often.

The last way would be the next step to the pre-emergent, known as a post-emergent. This is used for weeds that have already begun to sprout up. It is recommended for the best use, to be sure that you do not let the weeds go over 6 in in length to have the spray be more effective. Once applied the weed will take in the chemical and die. Most homeowners, or landscapers will use a blue dye that will help mark the areas that have been sprayed. It can take anywhere from 24-72 hours to allow for the weeds to die off.

The best ways to keep the weeds at bay is to apply all of the above tips and tricks. This will keep your yard and community looking sharp! Please ensure the check with your community, and HOA guidelines, and always ask a professional if you have any questions or concerns with any landscaping needs.

Monsoon 2016 Season

Nature always has a funny way in surprising us. Last night, the wind took over our Southern AZ communities and took a toll on some homeowners yards. From trees uprooting, and tree branches snapping, to the shock on some of our customers faces as we skillfully removed branches off of cars, and neighbors yards. We can say for certain that the windy night gave us all something to talk about. We strive to be as prompt with our services, and fair in pricing when it comes to last minute disasters like a tree that seems to have eaten your car! We are always grateful to meet new customers, and to know that we are the first on the list to call for our current/past customers when the Monsoon strikes.

Cane down the shrub

There are many reasons as to why you may want to cane down your shrubs. Sometimes the winter time blues will hit our plants. Cutting it down will help promote some new and fresh growth for the spring time, and will give it a fresh start. I remember my customer being a little worried that it may not grow back at all. I will post a picture showcasing where it is today!
