Our plant pick of the month is Flowering Quince, which is a deciduous shrub known for its red, pink, salmon or white flowers that bloom from late winter into very early spring.

Ash Tree Protection
Ash trees are a great native shade tree with beautiful fall color; they were used for street trees, in public parks and on residential properties. The Ash tree in recent years has been on the decline due to the Emerald Ash Borer. This metallic beetle has finally made its way to our area. The larvae of this insect bores into the bark of the tree and eventually kills the tree. If you have an ash tree on your property and would like to protect it contact a licensed arborist to talk over treatment options.

Landscape Design
Summer is a great time for planning a landscape design for a fall install! Have you always dreamed about having a beautiful landscape but did not know what to plant and how it should look? Have Leydon Landscaping design your perfect outdoor living area using plants that will thrive, have multi-seasonal interest and add value to your home. We also design areas for outdoor living such as spacious patios with sitting walls for guests to sit and enjoy a fire pit or outdoor fireplace. Do you enjoy the peaceful sounds of water? Let us design a natural or formal pond with a waterfall that you could sit by and relax. Do you have a sloped backyard or areas with unusable space? We can create a beautiful design that would make the most of these issues by implementing steps or retaining walls to level off the areas. Our APLD certified designer, Noah Downs, will create a design that will stand out and be enjoyed for years to come.
