Purposefully pollinating with edible gardens, custom water features, creative hardscapes, planting more green, and sustainable landscapes, are just a few of the latest 2017 trends!

Residential Backyard Stone Path

Green on Green on Green

In a recent color study done by Psychologists at UC Berkeley, it was found that people are most attracted to the color green. The theory is that the color green represents life itself and the preference towards green could be a nod to plants. It was shown that when a person is in the presence of greenery their muscles relax, they are calmed, and feel invigorated all at the same time. Green is good for you and for your landscape.

The Hardscape Advantage

Summer means more backyard BBQs & time outdoors, which is why adding hardscape to your landscape can bring so many benefits! Hardscapes can:

-Direct traffic around your yard or property and help avoid excess walking on turf

-Reduce maintenance and add privacy to your landscape

-Extend the usability of your yard; fire pits, water features, outdoor kitchens and more!

Through incorporating hardscape materials, you can achieve many incredible and unique landscape designs.

Plant With A Purpose

Honey bee populations have significantly declined in numbers over the recent years. Vegetable gardens have proven to be a great way to encourage bees to come and pollinate. While encouraging honey bees are good for your plants, wasps may not be as welcomed. Knowing the difference between the two and their nests is crucial. A beehive is usually easy to spot due to the bees swarming around the hive, compared to a wasp’s nest that has a paper-like appearance. Wasp nests are typically high up in the trees or sometimes in the ground.

Apartment Complex Landscaping

Sustainable Landscapes Are In!

Sustainable landscaping is the practice of using strategic methods for business and residential landscapes with the purpose of offsetting negative environment impacts. Not only does making the transition to a sustainable landscape save you money on water bills by using drought tolerant plants and minimizing turf areas, but it will also reduce the amount of chemicals in the environment due to the reduced fertilizations. These landscapes are low maintenance and environmentally responsible! A sustainable landscape can take on many designs that will fit your needs and style preferences.

  • I was very pleased this morning to see Reno Green clearing out the dried up brush in the irrigation ditch behind my house. In the six years I have lived here, I never saw (former landscaper) do anything to maintain the irrigation ditch, and I'm happy to have the fuel for a fire removed…the change to Reno Green was a positive one.

I can't say enough good things about Steve and his crew of guys. The extra mile that they go to and the amount of issues those guys have to deal with, it amazes me that they continue to do them with a smile. I also had to call the emergency line about five times this past Saturday and again, whomever was answering the phone, I felt so bad each time, but he got the guys out there and addressed each issue promptly. I just want to say thank you to him as well. Thanks again for a job well done."
