For our Colorado landscapes this has been the most extreme and dry winter. Lack of moisture is surely to harm our beautiful landscapes without us getting out the hoses to give them them a drink. Weather forecasts predict temperatures in the 80's for the third week of March. February felt like summer with damaging winds and wildfires. It is vital and with most urgency I ask you to please water your lawns, trees, shrubs, evergreens, broadleaf plant material, perennials, and grasses, basically please water your entire landscape. Without it we will surely lose plant material that we have so preciously cared for and enjoyed last season and previous seasons. If you have already been doing so, thank you.

Please help to pass this message on to everyone that you know. Below is a link to CSU to assist you with watering guidelines.http://extension.colostate.edu/topic-areas/yard-garden/fall-and-winter-watering-7-211/

We are extremely concerned about our landscapes this year and gratefully appreciate your help. Please continue to water by checking the soil and keeping an eye on the weather. As we cannot predict freezes and do not want our irrigation pipes freezing, the best option is to water by hose.

Why you should not plant Aspen trees in an urban landscape. My clients often ask that I place Aspen trees in their landscape. I share (actually beg) for them not to do it unless I am working on a mountain property. There are too many reasons to list but one of many reasons include their suckering surface lateral roots that travel 30 feet or more ruining lawns, concrete, hardscapes, and create a complete mess including sharing that mess with their neighbors properties. There is no way to control these roots and even though they appear to disappear when you mow them, they are still there. Photos are worth a thousand words, here's an example. Unless the homeowner wants an Aspen grove consuming their property and neighboring properties selection of a more desirable tree is the right answer.
