Garden Planning

What beautiful spring-like weather here in Western Loudoun this week! There's no better motivator than nice temperatures to take a look around your garden and decide what you'd like to grow. February is the perfect month to make your plan and order seeds. One of our favorite ways to start by looking through catalogs and gardening magazines, clipping ideas out as we go.

Tree Time

October through December is the time to plant new trees and shrubs! Consider an Oak, Beech, Dutch Elm, Amelanchier (Serviceberry) or Maple to enrich your landscape, rebuild the canopy and improve the air quality. Trees are gorgeous to behold any time of the year. Email or call Wildwood Landscape today at (540) 338-7190 to for more information.

Hot & Dry in Loudoun

Rain would be welcome right now. It is hard to see all the grass turning brown and plants wilting.

There are specific plants that fair better in this type of climate and ways to care for your current landscape to keep it healthy. We can help you figure out what can be done to keep your property looking good under all conditions. Email us or call 540.338.7190 to set up an appointment.

Echinacea: Time to Deadhead

Right now, you'll see many of your flowers looking rather pale. Now is the time to deadhead in order to allow for more blooms a little later on. It also helps tidy up the look of your gardens as well as prevent too much re-seeding.

Echinacea (coneflower) seeds a lot so it's good to leave a few for the birds!
