Spring time is Sod Replacement Time!

April 2011

Do you need sod replacement?

If so, now is a great time to replace. Here are just a few great reasons

  1. Temperatures now are warm enough to encourage quick establishment of your new turf while not so hot to cause extreme heat stress. This means less water! Less water used is more money in your pocket!
  2. Moderate temperatures also mean less evaporation. With less evaporation, more
  3. Water gets to the root system of the new sod. This will allow your new sod to develop a deep root system which will give you grass that is more drought tolerant in the summer months.
  4. Replacing your sod now, gives the sod the time to establish well before the height of pest season. A healthy, established lawn will have much more resistance to chinch bugs, sod webworms, fungus and other common summer pests.

Florida’s Majestic Oaks: Source of beauty, relaxation, & natural cooling

March 2011

Florida Oaks

As I sit writing this, with a pollen count of 10.6 for oak for the 20th consecutive day, sneezing, with a clogged nose, itching eyes nose and throat, coughing, post nasal drip and watering eyes, waiting for the majestic April showers, all I can say is:

I’m sorry. I still love the oaks and the flowering shrubs and plants.

Warm weather is here and Crapemyrtles are blooming early

March 2011

Crapemyrtles

With the sudden, early onset of warm weather, we are receiving calls regarding the trimming of Crapemyrtles. It is the policy of JLC Outdoors, as a rule, to not trim Crapemyrtles and it is not included in our regular service. Properly placed, crapemyrtle is a low maintenance plant needing little or no pruning. We do however, realize that there are always exceptions and because of improper cultivars selected at the nursery, improper placement in the landscape, or in order to facilitate foot traffic flow, trimming is sometimes necessary. If you need help or advice regarding your Crapemyrtles, do not hesitate to give us a call at 407-595-5818 and we will be glad to take a look.

Spring is Almost Here

March 2011

One of the most enjoyable things about living in our area is our fantastic Florida weather. When it is good, it’s very good, and when it is bad, it is horrid. Sorry! I couldn’t resist… Right now I don’t see how it could be any better. Daytimes in the mid 70′s to low 80′s with slow evening cool downs into the mid 50′s or 60′s. Hopefully the extreme cold is over for this year.

As demonstrated in the Old Farmer’s Almanac article we are fast approaching the Spring Equinox on March 20th, and our days are getting longer, giving us more daylight to enjoy outdoor activities and leisure. It is also a good time to take a look at our yards and assess what needs attention.

Cold Hardy Plants for Central Florida

December 2010

This will make our third winter in a row where we have seen extended periods of sub freezing temperatures throughout much of our area. Although we have typically been able to grow colorful tropical plants in our area, the past three winters have proven to be significantly colder than usual. With that in mind, there are many great plants that grow well in our area and can withstand freezing temperatures. Unless you are willing to take measures to protect your sensitive plants during freezes and/or replace these plants annually, I think it’s a great idea to consider using plants that will survive these conditions.

Cold Hardy Shrubs for Central Florida

Here are a few of my favorite shrubs for Central Florida that will withstand freezing temperatures:
