Waterfalls Designs

For people who love the sound of water cascading off rocks or spilling into a pond below, a waterfall is the perfect addition to the backyard. One of their benefits is the attraction birds... Most bird species need water to drink and to bathe in; so, if you provide moving water you'll have a lot of birds won't able to resist the attraction of moving water. Birds will flock to a waterfall or stream or even a fountain much more readily than they will a still pond or bird bath.

Why your lawn is important?

















"As a society we tend to take the benefits of grass for granted," says James B Beard Ph.D., one of America's leading turf experts and the chief scientist at the International Sports Turf Institute. Lawns have remained a desirable element of a beautiful landscape for hundred of years. Aesthetically, lawns enhance the quality of life, contribute to social harmony and community pride, increase property values and compliment other landscape plants.

In many cities of our country, a lawn may just be a small, well-tended area surrounded by native plants and creative landscaping or a big place that contributes to community green space; however, keeping it looking good requires the right knowledgement. If you’ve just added new turf to your property, we hope this post will help you keep your new lawn looking gorgeous all time.

The scientific evidence clearly shows that a healthy lawn is good for the environment, "Most homeowners don't realize noise and air pollution are reduced in most suburban areas because the grass ecosystem serves as a natural filter for the environment".

At Landscape By Today, Inc., we trying to give special attention to transforming and maintaining lawns into highly effective, aesthetic landscapes; for that reason, we recommended some tips:
- When should you cut your new lawn?  We recommend cutting your new turf when it reaches about three inches tall. The shorter your lawn is cut the faster it dries out, and this depend of the month of the year when you cut and for weather.
- Keep the soil moist until you’re ready to cut. If you have a newly seeded lawn should receive 5 minutes of water 3-4 times per day.
- Your lawn needs a regular routine of fertilization, weed control, mowing, and watering. If your lawn goes 30 or 40 days without any moisture, you’ll have problems and may need to replace it.

At Landscape By Today, Inc. we provide full-service care for your lawn to ensure its ongoing health. Part of our services are:
* Irrigation assessment

The Importance of Mulching

Good morning everybody, dear customers and users!

This day, we continue with the TIPS & TECHNIQUES; so, our third tip will be about “THE IMPORTANCE OF MULCHING”.

THE IMPORTANCE OF MULCHING

A newly planted tree’s best friend is mulch. It is very important to remember to mulch your tree after you have planted it.

Mulch is a valuable for your trees health and care because
1.    Mulch insulates the soil helping to provide a buffer from heat and cold temperatures.
2.    Mulch retains water helping to keep the roots moist.
3.    Mulch keeps weeds out to help prevent root competition.
4.    Mulch prevents soil compaction.
5.    Mulch reduces lawn mower damage.














Steps to Adding Mulch Around Your Tree

1.    Add mulch to the base of your tree by removing any grass within a 3 to 10 foot area depending on the size of your tree.
2.    Pour natural mulch such as wood chips or bark pieces 2 to 4 inches deep within the circle.
3.    Keep the mulch from touching the trunk of the tree.
4.    Learn proper tree watering practices.

Well, we hope that this tip to be useful for you! See you in a few days with other tips!

Tree Cares Tips & Techniques. Selecting a Healthy Tree

Good morning everybody, dear customers and users!

This day, we continue with the TIPS & TECHNIQUES; so, our second tip will be about “SELECTING A HEALTHY TREE”.

SELECTING A HEALTHY TREE

Good tree care starts with a healthy tree. Follow these tips and learn how to buy a tree.

WHAT TO LOOK FOR ON YOUR NEW TREE

Inspecting your tree upon delivery or at the nursery will help your tree provide a lifetime of benefits.
1.    Bare root tree: Abundant root growth, fiberous and numerous small roots, good color; moist
2.    Balled and burlapped tree (B&B): Firm soil ball, with trunk securely tied. Do not accept a plant with a broken “ball”. Do not accept a tree with circling roots at the base of the trunk. Always carry B&B plants by the soil ball, not the trunk, stems or branches.
3.    Container-grown tree (containerized and potted): Avoid trees that are “root-bound” in the can. Roots can circle around the edge of the container may become circling roots. (Cut any circling roots when planting.) Because of this, B&B trees are generally preferred for large trees. Always remove can, basket or pot when planting.

    Bare Root Seedlings
ü Roots should be moist & fibrous.
ü Deciduous seedlings should have roots about equal to stem length. 

    Balled & Burlapped
ü Root ball should be firm to the touch, especially near the trunk.
ü Root ball should be adequate for the tree's size.











Potted
ü Pot should not contain large, circling roots.
ü Pruned roots cut cleanly, none wider than a finger.
ü Soil & roots joined tightly.









SOME EXTRA THINGS TO CONSIDER WHEN PURCHASING MATURE TREES

When choosing trees for city plantings along streets and in parks, you will want to trees with fairly substantial caliper (trunk diameter).
ü Strong, well-developed leader (or leaders in a multi-leader tree).
ü Bright, healthy bark.
ü Trunk & limbs free of insect or mechanical injury.
ü Branches well-distributed around trunk, considerably smaller caliper than trunk.
ü Ideal spacing between branches, at least 8–12" for most species.
ü Good trunk taper.
ü Wide-angle crotches for strength.
ü Low branches—they are temporary, but help develop taper, promote trunk caliper growth, and prevent sun damage.
ü After a good start with good nursery stock, now it is time to learn how to plant your tree.

Well, we hope that this tip to be useful for you! See you in a few days with other tips!
