April is National Lawn Care Month!

Did you know that April is National Lawn Care month?

It's perfect isn't it? 

Last month we were busy fertilizing lawns and vegetation for the properties that we maintain on a regular basis. 

And we are working on checking irrigation systems and making sure that they are set correctly for the season. It's important to make sure that your lawn's sprinklers are working properly so that you have good coverage. 

If you need some help with any of that please give us a call.

Spend time outdoors!


The weather in southern Arizona has been beautiful!

Our family has really enjoyed more quality outdoor time the last few weeks. The kids have hopped in the pool, the girls have tanned, we planted a garden, and we have been cleaning up.

I've been reading about the benefits of being outside. If you didn't see our last blogpost about that click here to read about some of the benefits. 

Being out in the sun gives you vitamin D too! And all you need is about 20 minutes per day (without sunscreen)!

Did you know that it also helps with your circadian rhythm? Click here to read more about that. 

I am finding that there are many benefits to being outdoors. 

So that brings me to ask - how is your outdoor living area? Do you like to spend time in it?

Maybe you have a great back yard but it needs a little clean-up. 

Maybe you'd like a place to sit and have a BBQ.

Maybe you'd love a pool. (We did this and it's been worth every penny!) Plus we can help you create the perfect outdoor living space around it. 

The kids have friends coming over this afternoon. I think while they play I'm going to sit outside and enjoy the fresh air and sunlight! 

What can WE help YOU with so you can enjoy your outdoor living space?

Our top 10 plants!

It's March 1st and do you know what that means?!


It's time for spring!!

March is my favorite month - I love to watch the trees bud out and everything just seems to come alive. March is usually when things start to grow (including the weeds).

But it's also a good time to start thinking about adding some plants to your yard.

I recently read about the benefits of plants:

"Mental Health.  Studies have proven that people who spend more time outside in nature have better mental health and a more positive outlook on life."
People who spend more time outside in nature have a significantly more positive outlook on life than people who spend a great deal of time indoors. Communing with the natural world increases people’s feelings of vitality and energy, and consequently has a large positive effect on their overall mental health. Being outside around trees and ornamental horticulture is proven to improve people’s mental health, and give them a more positive outlook on their lives. People who spend time outside every day are less likely to be depressed or stressed, and thus have fewer burdens on their mental health. (Barnicle 2003, Faber Taylor 2001b, Grinde 2009, McFarland 2010, Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens 2009, Shoemaker 2009, Wolf 2004b)"

I think I better spend more time outdoors!

Flagpoles!

There are a few flag holidays in February but we've still got some throughout the year. 

But why not fly your American flag all year long?

That's what we do!

We've got 3 flagpoles at our shop. These are telescoping flagpoles.

Here you can see how low it goes.


It holds 2 flags.


Solar lights are a great option!







By the way, doesn't Arizona have amazing skies?!


Here is the one we have at our house. Look how easy it is to put up a new flag! 

You can get more than just patriotic flags too!

The one in the video was a "Happy Birthday" flag.
