Leaves on the Lawn

If you are like us, you are probably stopping to enjoy the beautiful shades of yellows, reds, and oranges we see filling the trees this time of year. This is personally one of my favorite times of the year! The leaves are beautiful, but the annual cleanup isn't so much to look forward to. It is very important that the leaves be cleaned up though. If leaves are left to lay on the lawn, they will smother and kill the grass underneath as well as detract from the beauty of the yard. Let DJS take care of your leaf cleanup this season and let the beauty of your landscape shine all through the season!

Fire Pits

Nothing quite goes with a crisp fall evening like a fire in the backyard. Whether its making s'mores or just relaxing listening to the crackle of the wood, a fire pit can be the center of many memories. We offer fire pits in a variety of styles to match any taste and always install with the utmost care to ensure it will last for years to come. Let us build you this centerpiece of outdoor living that is sure to spark great memories for everyone!

Winter Annuals

Fall is now in full swing and its time to replace your summer annuals with winter annuals. Replacing them now will keep them from dying in the ground and looking unpleasant in your landscape as well as give the winter annuals time to get in the ground for the coming cold. Mums, pansies, and greens such as kale are a great way to give your landscape a pop of color during the fall and winter months.

October Plant of the Month

Japanese Maple - 'Sango Kaku'

The 'Sango Kaku' is a variety of Japanese maple that makes a bold statement. The feature that makes it so unique is the bright, almost florescent colors of its bark and leaves. The bark is a bright coral color that makes a striking contrast in the winter. The leaves start out bright green with a strong reddish tint that fades out as the leaves mature finally changing to a yellow-golden color in the fall. The 'Sango Kaku' stands out in all seasons and can be a beautiful focal point in a landscape.
