Relaxing in Your Backyard
If you are like many of us, your backyard has become your oasis. This is the spot you choose to spend quality time with your family and friends Spring, Summer and Fall and Winter, weather permitting. It is the place you can get away from it all. It’s the place where you do a lot of your living – outdoor living.
Outdoor living spaces have become a welcomed extension to our homes, our own private place to breathe, to reflect and to recharge after a busy week. If you are thinking of adding something new to your outdoor space like a patio, fireplace or fire pit or a water feature, Timberline Landscapes is here to help you every step of the way.
Patios & Fireplaces
Let a new patio and fireplace or fire pit become the stage of your outdoor entertaining space. Whether it’s hosting a birthday party, graduation, wedding or just hanging out with friends and family for the weekend, let your new patio become the outdoor heart of your home.
A beautiful water feature is a great way to add a splash to your yard. If you love the sound of water among your plants or are looking for an escape to your own tranquil place, adding a water feature will do the trick.

Keeping Things in Tip Top Shape
Weeding – this time of year those pesky weeds will want to put out their seeds to produce more of the same pesky weeds to torment you in the future. Keep weeding to prevent their reappearance this fall or next spring!
Trimming Perennials – trim back your perennials. If there are seeds you can put them in an envelope, label what seeds are inside and seal it. Store them in an airtight container in a cool, dark, dry location. The seeds can be sown next spring. You can plant them directly in the garden, or get a jump on the season and start them early indoors.
Deadheading Annuals – If you want your flowers to continue to send out new blooms, you have to deadhead them to keep them from going to seed. You should also prune damaged and tired stems.
Watering – Watering Reminder Highlights include
1) Check all plants regularly
2) Slow, deep watering is preferred
3) If the soil is moist, do not water
