Wildlife and Your Garden

Wildlife and Your Garden

My gardening values differ drastically from many of my fellow Utahans. While most of them value a tightly mowed weed-free lawn, I prefer something that offers more diversity as well as more food for me, my bees, and the wildlife around me. [...]

How to Deal with Overgrown Roses

How to Deal with Overgrown Roses

When I moved to my new place last year we had a huge ‘Peace’ rose. It did the job of flowering brilliantly until about mid-July, and then it just stopped despite my sister’s attempts to keep it deadheaded and looking sharp. This is a problem with many roses as they get older, and it is not uncommon for this to start showing up a couple of years after planting. The solution to this drop in productivity is pruning. [...]

How to Use Landscape Fabric

How to Use Landscape Fabric

I confess I am not a big fan of landscape fabric. While it can save lots of time on yearly chores, the payback when the stuff needs to be removed is a doozy. But I also understand very clearly that landscape fabric can be a necessity in some modern settings. Let’s take a closer look.[...]

Take a Break!

Take a Break!

Let’s be honest, it’s been a tough year. Natural disasters, political strife, and violence in the news have taken a toll and many of us are tired, angry, and walking around with semi-permanent frowns. Now would be a good time to step away from the negativity on social media and the news and find something that will reduce stress and put a smile on our faces. Getting out in our gardens and landscapse is an obvious choice, but as the season winds down there might not be much left to do there. Here are some other great suggestions:[...]

Seeds, the Poor Man’s Garden Delight

Seeds, the Poor Man’s Garden Delight

I have been talking a lot about different plants lately, but not enough about the seeds that we sell. To an extent it’s because I work every day with plants that are already sprouted and established, but it’s also because I’m already sold on growing from seed and I forget that some folks are not so familiar or confident with seeds. So today I am going to share with you just how wonderful it is to plant from seed![...]

Late Season Weed Control

Late Season Weed Control

Let’s be honest here, if you have a bunch of weeds going wild on your property right now you've missed the boat earlier in the season. This is not something you are going to correct instantly and the effects are probably going to last years. That’s the bad news, but on the other hand there is no time like the present to start correcting the problem. Let’s take the time right now and come up with a plan that can make the best of a difficult situation and make it easier for next year and the years beyond. [...]

The Future of Beekeeping

The Future of Beekeeping

For those of us involved in beekeeping right now, you might get the feeling that beekeeping has hit its pinnacle. While we are still struggling to keep up with the changes nature is throwing at us, we have been caring for our bees much the same way for a long time. The Langstroth hive most of us use is over a hundred years old now. And while it has been updated as new technology has become available, it would easily be recognizable to someone from the late nineteenth century. [...]

Sand, Silt, or Clay: What Have You Got in Your Soil?

Sand, Silt, or Clay: What Have You Got in Your Soil?

Even those that live in big cities are surrounded by soil. Surprisingly enough their lives are constantly influenced by it, even when all the soil is buried under multiple layers of concrete and asphalt. Soil is not well tamed by man’s constant attempts to control and hid it. If you don’t believe me look at the history of sinkholes in Florida or landslides in any hilly or mountainous state. While there are other forces in play in those situations, it is also clear that what the soil does makes a big difference in how these phenomena interact with humans. [...]

Is Your Landscape Sustainable?

Is Your Landscape Sustainable?

You’d need to have been hidden under a rock for the last ten years or so to not have heard the terms sustainable, green, natural, wild-crafted, etc. in addition to the old school organic type of gardening. While organic now has a legal definition, there is no standard definition for any of the other terms when it comes to your garden or landscape. Even when I used the term “sustainable” as part of my company name, I knew I could not give a set of rules to describe my use of the term. Part of this had to do with the folks I was working with all having different ideas of what the word meant, but more importantly, it was determined by the needs of each project I was involved with.

Drip Irrigation Basics

Drip Irrigation Basics

Work and social media have been inundated with folks that have irrigation issues. Most of these problems are coming from drip systems and I think it is high time for me to write about it. [...]
