Many times, we receive requests from our customers asking us to trim their palm trees in what is commonly referred to as a hurricane cut. To picture this, imagine you are looking at the face of a clock. A hurricane cut would be leaving only the fronds that are growing in the 11-1 or at most in the 10-2 positioning on the clock. We have been trimming palms in Orlando and surrounding Central Florida areas for almost 25 years. We highly discourage this practice.Read More
Hopefully the hurricane season for Central Florida is over even though the official season does not end until November 30. JLC Outdoors is catching up on getting our regular landscape maintenance customers properties cleared and back on a regular schedule after the recent storms. As usual after storms, large tree damage was most prevalent with landscape clean ups in the Windermere, downtown Orlando and Winter Park areas. For our established customers we have cut these larger trees out and stacked them in front of the houses for pick up.Read More
If so, any time after February 15th is a great time to get a jump on sod replacement. Here are just a few reasons why:
Temperatures are warm enough to encourage quick establishment of your new turf while not so hot as to cause extreme heat stress. This means less water! Less water used is more money in your pocket!

The Cathedral Oak Tree is a Southern Live Oak. It is a cultivar which means it was cloned from a mother tree with the same DNA so as to copy the dense and upper structure of the tree. This tree is exceptional for applications where a consistent look and a tall dense headed tree is desired in the landscape. It is consistent in height and spread whether planning 1 or 50 in the design. Cathedral Live Oak Trees do not require the breadth of space a typical Standard live oak must have and can be planted as close as 30 feet apart. It is perfect for any place where consistency, privacy and shade are desired in the landscape.Read More

For the Adams family, baseball has always been a large part of our life. I played four years of little league in my youth. As I reached my early teens other interests soon took over and that was the end of my organized baseball career. However, there was always the occasional pick-up game in the neighborhood and I can remember having to answer for at least a couple of broken windows.
When Jason was old enough to start T-ball we were living in my small home town in Kentucky. There were not a lot of recreational opportunities in a town of 18,000 people and little league was a major event. There were four baseball complexes, one for each quadrant of the county, and all four fields drew major turn outs for every game. These people took their baseball serious. I coached Jason for his first two years in t-ball and it was quite an experience. The moms were sometimes a little intense in their enthusiasm and certainly did not mind letting you know their opinions on what position their youngsters should play or where they should be in the batting order. But friendships were formed and I made sure all players participated equally as best I could. The season ended with what is now the traditional mom vs. team end of year game. Over all it was a very rewarding experience and I know I benefitted greatly from my interaction with my players and their families.Read More
In most cases the more sunshine the healthier the grass. Partial shade usually means less than perfect lawns. Heavy shade usually causes poor turf and no grass can survive in full shade.
Before your new sod is installed it is imperative to make sure that your irrigation system is operating properly, that the new turf will be receiving full watering coverage and in the proper amounts. In reality the majority of lawns, once established, could receive substantially less water than they do and still do great. Water wasters in the landscape are faulty irrigation systems, running the system for too long, irrigating more frequently than needed, irrigating paved areas etc. As water demand continues to rise in Florida, it is increasingly important that we all do our part to practice proper irrigation JLC Outdoors will be glad to consult with you in this matter.Read More
The official start of spring, according to The Old Farmer’s Almanac, is at 1:14 a.m. on March 20 for this year of 2012. I always look forward to the increased daylight, warming temperatures, and the rebirth of flora and fauna that comes with each spring. I just hope we have a prolonged, moderate season and it doesn’t jump into the 90’s too soon.
With the more moderate temperatures most of us will be spending more time in the yard. This is a great time to take a look around your landscape and take an inventory of what needs to be done to assure your outdoor areas are up to your standards.Read More
