It’s been a few weeks, but we’ve got Jay with Harper’s Nursery & Landscaping Company here to get your winter lawn and garden happy and healthy!

  • Turn off that irrigation. We’ve had plenty of rain and your wasting it if it’s still turned on.
  • Save water now before they make it a law to turn it off.
  • Priorities for this time of year and what you can be planting to take advantage of our growing seasons.
  • With all the rains, weeds will be everywhere this year. Pre-emergent herbicides will save you a ton of time.
  • Time to prune roses, and Jay has advice on pruning certain tree types.
  • Prepping your soil for spring planting….Add some of our favorite products from Hickman Family Farms.
  • Reminder to check out local spots for ideas on zeroscaping and other ideas for landscaping in Arizona. Check out the Boyce Thompson Arboretum or the Desert Botanical Gardens.
