Fall is here! The air is cooling and leaves are falling, but we're not ready to head inside just yet. Grab some blankets and cozy up those backyard spaces to extend outdoor fun, but don't forget about Fall yard care. The new season leads to a new set of maintenance responsibilities to keep your landscape healthy and safe for family and friends. The Pros are here if you need a hand!
While walking through crisp, crunching leaves can fuel festive Fall vibes, the longer you let leaves cover your lawn, the larger the chance they will mat and gather with moisture from dew and rain. This makes for a harder cleanup and can suffocate the grass, causing it to brown.

Having properly timed leaf removal will allow your lawn to breathe and nourish itself. Whether you decide to grab the rake and sweat it out yourself or maybe get the kids involved in yard work, it's best to get those leaves cleaned up early. Prefer to save time and not worry about it?
Call us to schedule Leaf Removal, Fall Clean Up, Pruning, and Gutter Cleaning to help prep your outdoor spaces for the colder seasons.

We were thrilled to bring our slogan, "Outdoor Lifestyles Reimagined," to life with this dream backyard. This design was all about building a space that could be used by everyone, including one member of the family who has a health condition requiring temperature-controlled areas. What began as a small deck in a bare backyard, turned into a stunning oasis with a pool, two composite decks, an outdoor shower, a paver patio, and a magnificent pergola.
Maintaining your lawn and landscape is essential to the health and growth of your landscape. Much like you tend to your routine household chores to keep your house in tip-top shape, your lawn and landscape also needs regular maintenance to thrive. From eliminating weeds, fungi, and unwanted critters to applying fertilizer treatments, pruning and adding seasonal color, ongoing efforts are important for cultivating healthy plants, trees, and turf.

Think ahead now, and thank yourself later by getting on our maintenance schedule for 2021!
Leave the hard stuff to us and find more time to enjoy your outdoor spaces with friends and family.

Roasted Ranch Pumpkin Seeds
Carve up some pumpkins with the family but don’t toss those seeds! This simple recipe will give the whole family a salty, crunchy snack to munch on.

2 cups pumpkin seeds (or whatever amount is yielded from 1-2 carved pumpkins)
3 tablespoons melted butter, olive oil or avocado oil
1/2 teaspoon sea salt / to taste
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon parsley
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon dill
1/8 teaspoon dry mustard
1/8 teaspoon celery seed
1/8 teaspoon paprika
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  1. Preheat oven to 300°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, and set aside.
  2. Clean the pumpkin seeds by removing them from the pumpkin, and then picking any large chunks out.
  3. Fill a medium-size mixing bowl with warm water. Add in the pumpkin seeds, and then swirl around with your hand or a spoon to dislodge any of the pumpkin "gunk." Let rest for five minutes. The pumpkin seeds will float to the top, and the pumpkin guts will sink to the bottom.
  4. Use a slotted spoon to remove the clean pumpkin seeds to a kitchen towel and pat dry.
  5. In a small bowl, mix together your seasoning mixture.
  6. Toss the clean and towel-dried pumpkin seeds with the oil or butter. Then, add in the seasoning mixture tossing to make sure each pumpkin seed is well-coated.
  7. Spread pumpkin seeds onto the prepared baking sheet, making sure they are in one even layer. If you need to move to a second baking sheet, do so.
  8. Roast in preheated oven for 30-40 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes, or until the pumpkin seeds are golden brown.
  9. Remove from heat and let cool completely (pumpkin seeds will crisp up as they cool).
