October Maintenance Tips


Winter is just around the corner, it's time to complete your fall clean-up and set the stage for spring.

* Turn off and drain your sprinkler system. When soil is dry, water by hand.
* Keep your yard clear of leaves and yard debris, they can damage grass and vegetation.

Trees and Shrubs
* As soil begins to cool, adding mulch helps prevent evaporation and helps control weed growth and erosion. 
* In the case of an early snowstorm be sure to remove snow from all branches.

Flowers, Ground Covers, Perennials, and Ornamental Grasses
* Remove diseased plants and deadhead as needed.
* Cut back perennials that don't contribute to winter interest.
* Tender bulbs like dahlias or gladioli will do best if they're dug up and stored for next season.
* Plant spring bulbs as soon as they arrive. 

Metco Team Spotlight

We are very proud of the Metco Landscape, Inc. team being recognized at this year's MAME Awards. 


One of our valued partners, Taylor Morrison won 2014 Best Landscape Design - Model Complex at Castle Pines Village.  Our Custom team worked on creating a mountainous theme while creating a sustainable landscape plan that would pay homage to the rugged surroundings.  Water features were added to bring the tranquil sounds of nature to the landscape.  This low-maintenance landscape design compliments the home while bringing beauty to the community for years to come. 


Another community we installed and maintain with Taylor Morrison called Skyestone, won 2014 Community of the year.  We are honored to be part of these two beautiful projects.
