The highlight of the night, the coveted President’s Award was won for their maintenance services at the world class 20-plus acre Shakespeare Ranch, Lake Tahoe. The honor is presented annually for the best landscape receiving the highest overall judging score.

“To manage the landscape of a stellar property such as the Shakespeare Ranch makes me proud to begin with,” said Justin Trimble, partner of Signature Landscapes. “But to win the top NLA award adds a cherry on top! It’s really a great honor.”

Featured in Architectural Digest, Shakespeare Ranch (named for Glenbrook’s craggy rock resembling the playwright), has a famous following in its own right. Hosting dignitaries such as chef Emeril Lagasse, private concerts from Lionel Richie, and even former President Bush, who mentioned “They don’t make barns like this in Texas” during his stay.This is not the first time Signature Landscapes has been honored with the award; winning for the Cottages at Montrêux in 2007, and the Foothill Industrial Park in 2002. The company won 1st Place for the beautiful Ranch as well in the Large Residential Maintenance award category.

Garden clean-up in fall pays off in the spring

If you’re tired of outdoor chores, it’s tempting to walk away from the garden with a plan to clean it up next spring. But if you want a great veggie garden next year, you’ll be wise to take advantage of this warm weekend by doing some fall clean-up.

Why can’t you just wait until spring? Leaving leaves and debris in the garden gives diseases, fungus and pests a nice place overwinter and come back with a vengeance next spring. A garden that goes to sleep all cleaned up for the winter will wake up healthier in the springtime. There will also be less need to treat for pests and disease.

Need help with fall landscape chores? Contacting a landscape clean up pros at Signature Landscapes is as easy as clicking on our service request form, or calling (775) 857-4333.

Take these steps before you begin the clean-up:

  • Harvest root crops like carrots or potatoes that are still in the ground.
  • Make a sketch of this year’s garden, before removing any plant debris, that shows what was planted where. Having a sketch of this year’s garden will help you rotate placement of next season’s crops – like tomatoes – that do best when not grown in the same place each year.
  • Plant herbs, that will not overwinter outdoors, in containers to bring inside.

Tips for the clean-up

  • Remove all old veggies, vines, leaves and other debris from the garden. If leaves from trees blow in, keep them cleaned up as well. All of this decaying plant material makes a nice winter home for insects and disease.
  • Remove the weeds, too.
  • Most greens, leaves and small plants are fine to pitch in the compost pile. But leave out the weeds whose seeds will get back in the garden when you spread the compost. Also leave out tomato plants as they often carry disease, and large-stemmed vines such as pumpkin as they take too long to decompose.

When the garden is clean, do one last chore that will pay off next spring: work compost into the soil. You can also add straw mulch or grass clippings as mulch on top. Now your garden is nicely tucked in for its long winter’s nap.
