Winter Clean-Ups: In most of Arizona, the winters don't get cold enough to effect most of your landscape. Sensitive plants may need some protection during the colder nights of winter. During winter we recommend the preparation services of laying down mulch or tree wrap, wrapping a cylinder around sensitive trees to protect against frost, and general removal of debris from the previous season.
Spring Clean-Ups: Spring time doesn't last long in Arizona, it begins around the middle of March and ends around the middle of May. During spring we recommend a clean up which consists of a weed and pest control, trimming shrubs, edging, debris clean up, preparing flower beds, planting, and other general plant care should be done during this ideal time.
Summer Clean-Ups: We all know how harsh the Arizona summers can be. Many plants also have trouble making it through the summer heat wave. Summer starts around the middle of May and finally ends around the start of October. During summer we recommend protecting the more sensitive plant with shading, also trimming back shrubs and trees so they have less stress to carry through the summer.
Fall Clean-Ups: Fall starts in early October and lasts right up to December. The fall clean up consists of cutting back shrubs, trimming trees to promote health, edging borders, weeding, getting rid of debris and preparing for the winter chills.

Pruning is a horticultural practice that alters the structure and growth of a plant. Pruning can also be considered preventive maintenance. Many problems may be prevented by pruning correctly during formative years for a tree or shrub.
Pruning is beneficial for several reasons such as:
Removes dead or dying branches injured by disease, severe insect infestation, animals, storms, or other adverse mechanical damage.
Removes branches and branch stubs that rub together.
Encourages flower and fruit development.
Helps maintain a dense hedges.
Helps maintain a desired tree form or special garden forms.
Controls plant size.
Keeps evergreens well-proportioned.
Removes unwanted branches, waterspouts, suckers, and undesirable fruiting structures that detract from plant appearance.
Pruning is really the best preventive maintenance a young plant can receive. It is critical for young trees to be trained to encourage them to develop a strong structure.
Trees and shrubs are living investments that grow in value every year. When properly chosen, trees and shrubs can be expected to thrive in the right environment. Just as certain drought-tolerant plants may not require water during dry spells, mature trees and shrubs growing in favorable soil conditions may require little or no fertilizer.
Fertilizer is often misunderstood and misused; it isn't food. Plants produce their own food in the form of sugars through photosynthesis. The minerals or nutrients supplied by fertilizer provide the ingredients needed for photosynthesis and growth. When minerals are lacking or absent in the soil, fertilizer can be added to maintain an proper levels.
Fertilizer should not be considered a cure for failing plants. When unadapted or unhealthy plants are chosen, carelessly planted or improperly watered you will see signs of distress in the plant.
When fertilizing trees and shrubs keep this in mind. Fertilizer is beneficial when it is needed, but use it in the right amount, at the right time, and in the right places.

During spring time, while the water temps are still below 50 degrees, is a good time to evaluate your pond and fountain. This is when you take inventory on your pond and fountain supplies and make sure you are stocked up on beneficial bacteria, water conditioners and even decide if there were any upgrades you wanted to make during this time.
Soon after the summer months come are probably when the most pond and fountain issues arise. Warm weather oxygen levels, encourages algae growth and makes fish more active, leading to increased feeding and waste production.
Some of the important factors in pond and fountain maintenance are:
Checking the mechanical systems
Making sure spillways aren't clogged
Looking for signs of erosion
Cleaning out any loose debris
Making sure your aeration device is properly functioning
Testing the pH levels and balancing
