Weed control options

Posted by Marie Trejo on Jul 2, 2021 7:37:47 AM

It's monsoon season!

I have always loved the rain, as you probably do too. And our land could sure use some about now. 

But, with rain comes the dreaded weeds.

No one likes weeds. They're like laundry. You can get all of the weeds done and taken care of but they are never ending. You can't take a break from them too long or you will have a mess!

Here are some options if you are tired of handling the weeds yourself:

Do you have an outdoor living space?

Posted by Marie Trejo on Jan 14, 2021 8:59:46 AM

I think we can all agree that the year 2020 will be remembered as the year we all stayed home (for the most part). I'll remember it as the year I didn't get on a plane.

New Year's Resolution - One Word

Posted by Marie Trejo on Jan 6, 2021 8:47:29 AM

As we finally close the doors on 2020 it is a perfect time to take a few minutes to reflect on the past year. We are almost a week into the new year but it's not too late! Think of the things you learned, the challenges that you overcame, the sorrow, the happiness, and even the blessings.

Supporting Small Business this Season

Posted by Marie Trejo on Nov 24, 2020 10:23:30 AM

The season of gift-giving is upon us and we want to shout from the rooftops to “shop small and support local.” Shopping small has never been more important than right now. With Covid-19 hitting earlier this year, many small businesses were greatly affected. Some businesses had to shut down temporarily while others were permanently closed.

Can you imagine all the stress and worry that business owners are experiencing this season of how they are going to get the sales they need?

This is why small businesses need YOU!

A family update

Posted by Marie Trejo on Nov 4, 2020 2:34:24 PM

Many of you have been clients of ours for a long time, while many of you have recently joined our Grasshopper family. 

I thought since this is "thankful" month, I would start by expressing our gratitude to you for trusting us and our Grasshopper team with your property and projects. We really, really appreciate your trust and business!

Also, thank you for voting for us again as Sierra Vista's #1 Landscaper and #1 Pool Maintenance company! 

We started sending out Christmas cards to all of our clients when our family looked like this:

Beautiful Plants for Southern Arizona!

Posted by Marie Trejo on Aug 3, 2020 7:00:00 AM

We get so many requests and questions about what plants do best in our area that we decided to compile them all. 

Many of our clients want to know what kind of plants they have, and many want to know what the plants look like that we propose to install for them. 

With the extended closures and the uncertainty in the world, there is no better time than now to start thinking about creating an outdoor space that will provide you with peace and comfort. And you don't even need to go big either. Just creating an area in your back yard for some things that you enjoy - like an area to read and relax, an area to play in, or an area to entertain in. We can create a space that is just your style. One thing we've learned from 2020 is that things can change in an instant! Who knows if or when another mandate to lockdown and quarantine will be. 

One of my favorite places in our yard is our fire pit area. We have many Elderica Pines and Mesquite trees and I love to sit under them and read. This is also a place that I love to sit and visit with family.
