Of all the plants that we featured last year, both as specials and as a plant profile, the one that created the most attention and by far outpaced all the others in orlando lawn care sales was the Italian Cypress. Most of the sales were in multiples and discounts are available for 2 or more trees. This is such a versatile tree that we are going to start 2012 off with a reminder that we still have beautiful stock available in this tree, both in 15 gallon and 30 gallon sizes. Give our Orlando Lawn Maintenance Team a call at 407-595-5818 for current availability and pricing, or fill out the Request a Bid form at the bottom of this page.Read More
The month of January is past and so far no horrible freezes, as far as plant damage at least. It looks like some areas may have gotten a little more than others. This is not unusual. Just be sure to resist the temptation to start cutting back or trimming plants where there is damage until after February 15, at which time we are usually safe from further frost damage. If you cut back damaged plants now it can leave them vulnerable to further damage if we do happen to have more frost.Read More
Here we are in the New Year of 2012. They say that ‘time flies when you are having fun’. I must have had a blast last year because 2011 certainly flew by way too fast. I am going to try to slow down some this year and maybe hold on to each moment a little longer. They become much more valuable as we age. Not complaining though. There are many great memories still in mind from last year, both business and personal, and looking forward to the same for 2012.
We want to start the New Year off by once again thanking all of our customers for making JLC Outdoors’ your choice for Lawn Maintenance and Landscaping Services. We sincerely appreciate you patronage and look forward to working with you for many more years in the future. We value each individual client and in the effort to ensure a long lasting and mutually rewarding relationship we pledge the following:Read More
**This is an article that Jason posted in December 2010. Even though we have made it through December so far without freezing temperatures, this article is still very timely and appropriate for the season. It details some plants that are particularly susceptible to freeze, tells you how to protect them, and even tells you what to do post freeze. This is a must read for every homeowner.
It’s only mid-December and we’ve already had two periods of below freezing temperatures in many areas of Central Florida. With several months of winter still ahead of us it is important to understand what plants in your landscape may be affected by freezing temps and the best way to protect them. Some common tropical plants in our area that need protection in a freeze are hibiscus, bougainvillea, ixora, plumbago, mandevilla, arboricola, philodendron, ti plants, firebush and allamanda to name a few. There are also a few common palms, such as foxtail palms, areca palms and roebellini palms that will need protection in a freeze.Read More

This being the last newsletter of 2011 JLC Outdoors would like to take this opportunity to wish all of our friends and customers the very best for the Holiday Season and a prosperous New Year for 2012. We thank you for making JLC Outdoors your choice for Landscaping Design, Install and Lawn Maintenance services and hope that we may continue to provide service for many years to come.
It has been a year of change for JLC Outdoors. Even with the economy being what it is we have seen a good percentage of growth in our maintenance division over the year of 2010. Our Landscaping Division has also shown remarkable growth. We have seen some changes in the scope of work. A large percentage of our landscaping designs and installs have come from within our existing customer base and are re-designs and on a smaller scale than in previous years. We have experienced a marked increase in the installation of larger, more mature palms, trees and other plants. These make an immediate and highly visible change on any property.Read More

Many landscapes look great in spring, but lose a lot of their interest in fall and winter months. Once identified, this problem is easily corrected by adding a few interesting plants.
There are many elements of landscape design. Color, line, balance, proportion, natural transition and simplicity are all elements to consider in a good landscape design. Movement is another design element that adds interest. This can be accomplished in many ways, such as a circulating pond or a babbling water fall. Movement can also be attained by adding some unique and interesting plants to your landscape.Read More
