An unattended pile of leaves may take two to three years to decompose! So take a look at some tips for composting your fall leaves!

 

- Fall leaves are a valuable resource because they keep garden soil productive. By following a few tried and true composting techniques, you can optimize fall-leaf composting.

- The minimum size for compost bins is three feet by three feet by three feet. Bins larger than six feet across may restrict oxygen infiltration and slow decomposition.

Reducing Snow Load on Branches

- Evergreens may need to be lightly shaken to remove snow loads from branches during snowstorms. Snow can weigh the branches down which will change the shape of the tree and can break branches. A great way to do this is with a household broom. Using the end with the bristles, gently tap the underside of each branch to shake the snow off.

Wildflowers are ideal for a more natural, less formal appearance. A planting of wildflowers will become a complex, interactive plant community, not just a collection of individual plants. You may choose to model wildflower plantings after surrounding native-plant communities or use wildflowers to provide bold splashes of color. 

The term “wildflower” does not necessarily imply that such plants are native to our area. Rather, it refers to an overall “look” or “feel” of an informal planting. Many plants in wildflower seed mixes are not native to Colorado. 

Do you know which plants are poisonous to your dog, cat, or other pet? Keep your fuzzy
friends safe! Here is a list of the more common plants and flowers that may be dangerous for
your pet.

We all enjoy our flowering plants. However, pet owners need to be aware that some plants
are toxic if their animal has a hankering to eat them!

Composting Yard Waste

by C.R. Wilson and J.R. Feucht 

 

All yards produce waste from pruning, lawn mowing, and other routine plant care activities. Composting is a way to reduce the volume of organic wastes and return them to the soil to benefit growing plants. 

Is something eating your roses? Or maybe your grapes? Or your apple trees? Is your grass yellowing? Chances are, it's a Japanese Beetle. These beetles are very showy- bright greens, purples, browns, and very shiny. They also like to hang out in clusters together. 

 

Life Cycle:

Japanese Beetles have a one-year life cycle. In that one year, they can do quite a bit of damage. They start as larvae living in the roots of grasses, feeding on their roots until around June when adult beetles emerge.
