How to Use Arizona River Rock in your Landscape

In today’s landscape tip video, we explore Arizona River Rock.

River rocks are stunning with their smooth surfaces and versatility, as they can be used in various landscape installations, adding beauty and functionality.

They are especially great for pathways and problem areas in your landscape where it is hard to grow grass or plants. River rock is also an excellent choice for narrow or tight spaces in a landscape where you need to create visual appeal but don’t have enough space to grow grass or plants.

At Village Green, we know your landscape is an investment in the future of your home, and we make it a point to take the extra steps to deliver on our mission to grow plants, people, and trust.

Tour Steve and Madelyn’s New Landscape

Steve initially called me because he and I served on a church committee together, but as often happens, he gave me Madelyn’s number because she’s the real gardener of their family. I could not agree more. Madelyn knew her plants and what she wanted for her landscape which made our job considerably easier.

Madelyn likes plants that attract bees and ensure their backyard plants are dog friendly. Most of the landscape was already in place, so our focus was on improving pockets of the landscape.

We installed kaleidoscope abelias, purple heuchera, and red yuccas to add blooming color and chose evergreen plants of flirt and obsession nandinas along with giant liriope.

The front landscape gets a lot of Sun, which doesn’t work well for a Japanese maple, so instead, we used a forest pansy redbud with purple leaves most of the year and lovely pink blooms in early spring.

Madelyn warned me at the start of the project that she is picky, so her praise for Hannah, Manny, and Darrius and her enjoyment of our overall process was excellent. She told me the result was what she wanted, which we always love to hear!

How Can We Earn Your Trust?

Our guiding principle at Village Green is to grow plants, people, and relationships. This mission drives everything we do as a company and why we’ve been helping your neighbors with all the lawn, landscape, and sprinkler needs since 1980. We’ve worked hard to earn the trust of our customers, which is why it makes us so happy when they take the time to let us know how we’re doing.

Take Robin in Richardson. She was so happy with the service provided by our landscape team that she took the time to call to let us know about her experience and how Hannah went the extra step to lay down on the ground in the rain to fix the sprinkler system. How the team quickly and pleasantly adapted to changes, getting other plants as needed and offering helpful advice during the installation that ultimately improved the landscape’s overall design. And finally, how Manny and Darrius not only dug a hole for a new tree but took the extra time to review their work from the patio to ensure it would be placed in the perfect location. She went on to say that she would recommend our services to anyone looking for landscape work and that her son would call us for some work at his home.

This level of service is how we earn our customer’s trust and is what makes Village Green different from other companies.

If you are looking for help with your lawn, landscape, or sprinkler system, we invite you to read our Google reviews or ask your neighbors about their experience working with us.

Your Fall Lawn Questions Answered

As we get deeper into fall and our days grow shorter, and temperatures get cooler, we begin to transition our lawn health treatments to a fall pre-emergent designed to reduce fall and winter weeds. We also get a lot of fall-related lawn questions at this time of year, so we are sharing them and our answers with you today.

What do you recommend we do with leaves on our lawn and landscape?
Leaves left on your lawn for too long can lead to fungal problems, so it is good to rake or mulch them as you can. On the other hand, leaves in your landscape beds are good (think free mulch!)

Do you recommend installing plants in a landscape in the fall?
The answer here shocks most people, but the answer is yes. Fall and winter are two of the best times of the year in North Texas to install a landscape. When you install in fall, winter, and spring, you give your new plants time to establish before our hot and dry summer months, leading to deeper and stronger roots. And deeper and stronger roots are vital for plants to thrive in these hostile summer conditions. Village Green has the experience to install year-round and a plant warranty to give our customers peace of mind, but if you can cherry-pick the time of the year for your landscape, go with fall and winter.

What are the best plants to add fall color to our lawn?
We addressed this a few weeks ago (you can read the full story here.) We recommend pansies, violas, kale and cabbage, mums, cyclamen, pumpkins, and gourds.

Do I need to water my lawn in the fall?
YES. The most important thing you can do for your lawn’s health, other than working with Village Green, is to water the proper amount each of our four seasons in North Texas. You can download our free fall watering guide here.

If you need help with your lawn, landscape, or sprinkler system, 972-495-6990 or email Info@VillageGreen-Inc.com for more information. In business since 1980, we are locally owned and operated and have North Texas know-how and experience to deliver results and earn your trust.

Here’s How Borders Benefit your Landscape

Your landscaping at your home is an investment, and to ensure that investment is protected, it is important that you create a border for your landscape. Not only are landscape borders functional (they keep invasive grass out of your beds and keep your landscape plants in,) but they also look great and, if done correctly, complement your landscape.

When it comes to landscape borders, there are many choices (drop-edge, steel edge, composite, and stone). In today’s video Ken Hyatt, our Founder and President, show you all you need to know about the various types and details of our preferred style (and how we install them in our projects.)

Landscape Tip: Use Black Stained Mulch to Create a Landscape that Pops!

Today we wanted to show you a new product we’re using in our landscapes, black stained mulch. It is a fine shredded hardwood, organic mulch that still breaks down and provides good nutrients back into the soil. The reason we like to use it is that the black color really makes our landscapes pop! It makes the plants stand out and creates a unique look to our landscapes.
