Its Time to Water Plants

The spritz of snow we had this week is a drop in the bucket when it comes to moisture needed to keep plants healthy. This is not a time to be complacent about dry plants. We need +/- 10 inches of snowfall to equal 1 inch of moisture.

Most winters along the Front Range, there is not enough snowfall to give plants the moisture they need.

Remember, this is dry Colorado and even leafless trees and dormant lawns need winter water. This year’s exceptionally dry fall means watering is already in order.

Adding supplemental water during the fall and winter keeps roots from drying out. Plants that receive water consistently will enter the spring as healthier plants.

Did you plant new trees, shrubs or perennials this season? If so, they are likely long overdue for a good soaking if they have not been watered since the sprinklers were winterized. Plan to check soil often and water throughout the winter.

What about other plants? Any plants, if the soil is dry down to a 3-inch deep, need water.

When can you water? Anytime daytime temps are above freezing and the soil is not frozen, plants can be watered.

What about lawns? Even though lawns appear dormant, they still need supplemental water especially areas of high sun exposure which tend to suffer winter kill.

How should you water?

  • Trees and shrubs are watered most effectively with a hose and a deep-root watering device attached. Because you insert it well into the soil, you will get more water into the root zone than by simply watering the surface of the soil. Water in a circle that corresponds to the area on the ground where the tree branches end. Place the device at about 18-inch intervals as you water.
  • For lawns, use a garden hose with a sprinkler. Water long enough so that the soil is thoroughly soaked without run-off. Water sloped areas in shorter periods, but more than once so water soaks in without running off.  (Credit to ALCC)

This allows you, your family and guests to enjoy your new fire element with without the concern of stock wood, flying sparks, cleaning ashes or replacing the propane tank each and every time you want to use it.

So the questions are………what is your fire element going to look like and when do you want to start the planning? Mile High Landscaping is here to help and we look forward to creating your new outdoor living space!

Turning 3d Renderings into Built Projects

Our motto, “Transforming the Everyday into the Extraordinary”, is a reflection of the complex and impeccable work we do every day. Our team is constantly pushing the limits in design and construction to create one of a kind projects for our clients.

As our projects have become increasingly more complex and unique we have relied on 3d renderings to portrait our design intent to clients and even our team of fabricators. We have found it to be a great tool for not only showing our design intent but also as a way to help the client experience the space before it is built.

 We have found great reward in seeing our concept models turn into built projects!
