It’s a rainy weekend and that means healthy landscapes and a lot of work needs to get done. That’s why we’ve got Jay with Harper’s Nursery & Landscaping Company here to give advice for your home!

  • How water preservation applies to agriculture and what YOU should be doing to combat water waste.


  • Dave – He lives in a complex of 12 duplex condominiums. The water bill for the property was outrageous last year. (Up $5,000) They’re considering not watering the bermuda lawn. Will that kill it?

Recommendation – No. It might have bare spots and it will turn brown, but that should not kill it. Bermuda is very tough to kill. Jay talks him through killing it if that’s what they want to.

*More on killing bermuda lawns and options once you get rid of it.

  • Jay – He has a blood orange tree and he hasn’t had any success. Do we have a recommendation on the variety he should plant?

Recommendation – The Arizona sweet is a decent option and Jay loves a trovita veriety. He shares why he would plant that one or going with a tangelo as an option. We also discuss why blood orange struggle here.
