HERE’S WHAT TO KNOW TO CREATE A UNIQUE OUTDOOR EXPERIENCE
BY DEAN ROWLAND
REPRINTED WITH PERMISSION FROM HILTON HEAD MONTHLY

Big yards and big gardens provide a variety of options to enjoy all year long, from weekend parties to small gather-rounds with family and friends to quiet strolls amongst the flowers, plants and hardscapes.

Small gardens, on the other hand, are a special place unto themselves. Every plant, flower and outdoor touch of Lowcountry ambiance are nourished with love and attention to detail.
Although limited in space, they can unlock the imagination to create big statements. After all, season-long living in the Lowcountry begs for an outdoor oasis that titillates the senses, from color to fragrance to flowing water to unique textures in furniture to pinching herbs for sublime or bold flavor in your favorite foods.

They can be a place of solitude or casual lazing with a friend. “The past couple of years we’ve learned that you can be outside and have peaceful contemplation that is healthy, or a conversation,” said Janet Fanning, nursery manager at The Greenery on Hilton Head.

Flowers and plants create the foundation on which to build outdoor living space.

“There’s two different ways of seeing it: There’s the garden bed and the space as an outdoor ‘room’ that you create for cocktails or white wine in the summer evening,” she said.

“The first thing you need to consider is plant choice, which hinges on light exposure, direct sun,” Fanning said. “You need to decide if you want the garden space to have annual color that you need to change out two to three times a year, plants that are green all the time, perennials that will die in the winter or do you want a combination of those things?”

The checklist of considerations for creating a small garden includes sun, shade, exposure, maintenance, a water source, deer prevention, hardscapes, visual drama, sound and movement, privacy, color, materials, textures, height, bordering and more.

Free-standing horizontal pergolas or vertical trellises with arches of wood or metal anchor vines creeping up the side and on top greet guests to the garden walkway. Garden gates with welcoming potted flowers in front give an inventive flair to the environment.

Statues of all sorts—animal, religious, historical or symbolic and materials like stone, ceramic, cast iron or metal—can increase the aesthetic appeal of the garden space.

Water, whether it’s a pond, waterfall or fountain, has unlimited ways to embellish the space.

Fanning likes a hardscape that allows water to trickle or flow steadily. “The whole point of having water is for the movement,” she said.

A single or multi-tiered fountain achieves that, especially when stones are added to create a unique display. The soothing effect of water is a pleasant sound in an otherwise quiet outdoor retreat. Wind chimes also achieve the same effect.

A pond liner and pump will set up any homeowner for a small haven. Water lilies and white-water snowflakes add some color and float on the water like nature intended them to do.

Complete the outdoor ensemble with a bistro set of comfortable chairs and table and a water-resistant rug. Infuse the scene with subtle or bold lighting.

“A big statement can be done with hardscapes or decking to put your furniture on,” Fanning said. “There’s uplighting for your plants or specimen trees, which is nice to have at night.”

Decorative lanterns also can make the private garden glow after the sun sets.

Looking to create your own small space of peacefulness in your yard? Stop by The Greenery Garden Center today to talk to Janet or one of our other Greenery team members about the steps to take and the plants to use to make your garden into a little slice of heaven. We’re open Monday – Friday from 8:30 am – 5:00 pm; Saturday from 9:00 am – 4:30 pm and Sunday from 10:00 am – 4:30 pm.

The Truth about Spanish Moss

The name can be quite misleading for this iconic southern sight found draped on trees across the Southern portion of the U.S. and Central/South America. Did you know that Spanish Moss is neither from Spain nor is it actually moss?

Tillandsia Usneoides (Spanish moss) is actually an epiphytic bromeliad. Tilalandsia Usneoides, sometimes known as air plants, get their required moisture and nutrients from the rain and air AND as with most air plants, Spanish Moss does flower. Flowers are small, barely noticeable, but can be seen if you look very closely. They flower spring through fall. And they also exude a sweet fragrance at night.

Spanish moss reproduces through seed and by producing pups. Pups are genetic replicas and can form chains up to 20 feet long. Seeds are structured to be carried by the wind or creatures to a new location.

Generally, Spanish moss appears in older, more mature trees and shrubs. Because it is an epiphyte, its nourishment comes from dust and water in the air. Therefore, Spanish moss receives nutrients from older trees that are shedding dead cells.

SETTING THE RECORD STRAIGHT

Another common misconception about Spanish moss – it doesn’t actually kill trees! It takes nothing from the tree. Although, it can get heavy and cause some damage with its weight, especially after a rain shower.

Spanish Moss is sensitive to air pollution and is said to not grow well in areas where pollution is significant. So Spanish moss doesn’t need to be removed from the trees, and in fact plays an important ecological roll.

Many people also incorrectly believe that Spanish moss contains chiggers. After repeated attempts and experiments, entomologists have not found Chiggers in most Spanish moss. Chiggers are most commonly found in tall grasses.

**For those not native to the Lowcountry or the south…chiggers are extremely tiny pests that can only be seen through a hand lens or microscope. Their presence is usually made known by the extremely itchy welts they leave behind.

USEFULNESS

Spanish moss had many uses back in the day. In fact, during the civil war, Spanish moss was used as blankets and saddle pads. It was durable, waterproof, did not chafe horses, was breathable for the horses and was found in ABUNDANCE.

Spanish moss was used right up through the 1960’s as furniture stuffing, insulation, string, floor mats and many more everyday items!

Spanish moss has also proven useful to other creatures. Birds such as Warblers and Oriels often use it to build their nest. In addition, some snakes and bat species make their homes in Spanish moss.

This misunderstood centerpiece of Southern horticulture has gotten a bad rap but deserves to be defended. The next time you see Spanish moss magnificently draped on a majestic towering oak tree – don’t avoid it or plan to remove it. You should just enjoy the texture and beauty that it adds to the lovely scenery that surrounds you.

6 Signs That Your Irrigation System Needs Professional Attention

The summer months are fast approaching in the Lowcountry. And that means an increase in the temperature and more water required to keep your lawn and landscape well hydrated to survive the summer heat. Proper watering is key to keeping your yard looking good in all seasons, especially summer, but that doesn’t mean you have to break the bank with your water bill. There are steps you can take to assure that your lawn is watered and your back account isn’t drained in the process. Here are the six signs that your irrigation might need some professional help:

Your Water Bill Makes You Faint – A spike in water usage can indicate a leak that’s letting water escape from pipes while it drains money from your wallet. It’s also possible that your controls are not properly set. Irrigation systems can be complicated, and every installation is unique. The Greenery’s irrigation technicians have experience with both residential and commercial systems.

Your Lawn Has Water Puddles, or Brown Spots, or Both. Overly saturated areas and patches of yellow or brown grass both indicate trouble that can range from incorrect zone settings to faulty sprinkler heads. The Greenery’s irrigation professionals can pinpoint the problem and restore the efficient water flow that keeps your grass and landscaping green and healthy. 

The Sprinklers Activate at the Wrong Times – Your system controller probably needs attention. The information stored in the controller, the brain of the system, tells it when and how long to supply water to the sprinklers. There are hundreds of different controller systems on the market, and The Greenery’s irrigation professionals have experience with all of them. 

Your Driveway and Garage Door Get Watered Thoroughly, Leaving Your Grass High & Dry – Sprinkler heads can get clogged, blocked, or even worn out over time. Maybe they weren’t properly aimed from the beginning. One sprinkler head can waste hundreds of gallons of water over the summer.

You’ve Gotten Plenty of Rain, But the Sprinklers Still Turn On (Even During the Rain) – Remember the system controller we mentioned above? Something has to tell it that you’ve gotten enough rain. A simple rain sensor detects measurable rainfall, and automatically turns off the irrigation valves. The Greenery’s irrigation professionals can easily install a rain sensor, making even older irrigation systems up-to-date and more efficient. 

The Water Company Wants to Know the Results of Your “Backflow Test”. A special backflow valve is installed onto your plumbing system to protect your drinking water and the city water supply from contaminants that could flow back from the irrigation system. A regular test is required. The Greenery’s irrigation professionals can conduct the backflow test to certify that your system is compliant.

Don’t get stuck with a faulty irrigation system that wastes water and your money. CALL US TODAY for an affordable, professional check of your irrigation system 843-785-3848.

The Groundhog Predicts 6 More Weeks of WINTER – What to do now?

As we all know, Groundhog Day is celebrated each year on February 2 in North America. The tradition  derives from the Pennsylvania Dutch superstition that if a groundhog emerges from its burrow on this day and sees its shadow, it will retreat to its den, and winter will continue for six more weeks. However – if it does not see its shadow because of cloudiness, spring will arrive early!

Perhaps in a continuous theme that has seemed to occur recently – our reliable groundhog, known as Punxsutawney Phil, DID in fact see his shadow. Meaning 6 more weeks of winter…

While it’s a fun tradition each year to recognize…SPOILER ALERT – studies have found no consistent correlation between a groundhog seeing its shadow and the arrival time of spring-like weather. Not sure if you find this to be good news or bad. But either way, its important for you (and your landscape) to be prepared for whenever Mother Nature decides to usher in warmer weather.

Mulch

If the groundhog is right…then it is important to continue to be vigilant about taking care of our outdoor and potted plants. Remember that tropical plants are not immune to the adverse effects of freezing temperatures. Moving potted plants inside and outside regularly can cause undo stress on the plants. So you may want to consider just moving plants indoor for the duration of the cold months. However, outside plants need attention too. At the Greenery Garden Center, we use N-Sulate frost cloths to protect our outdoor plants and shrubs. Sheets can cause limbs to break and plastic tarps don’t allow the plant to breathe. But N-Sulate cloths help covered plants to stay 5 degrees warmer as well as protect against frost without weighing down branches. Keep in mind that this cloth will not help when there is a hard freeze.

Another important measure to take before a frost or drop in temperatures – is to make sure that plants are properly hydrated. Be sure to thoroughly water at the base of each plant. The exception to this rule is for succulents. Because they hold water and water expands when frozen, any freezing temperatures can cause succulents to break open. 

White Flowers

Maybe you will opt to bring the outdoors “in” during these last weeks of winter. A great option for you might be the Peperomia. This hearty plant was selected as House Plant of the Year by the National Garden Bureau because of its vast selection and ease of care. Peperomia’s prosper best with bright, indirect light and in temperatures between 60-80 degrees. The Greenery Garden center has a wide array of houseplants to choose from to help fight off those winter blues you may be experiencing. Studies have shown that having indoor plants can help you recover from illness quicker, reduce stress levels and improve indoor air quality.

Purple Flowers

But maybe you’re ready to prepare for Spring and forget about the groundhog’s prediction. Then stop by the Greenery Garden Center today. The daffodils and hydrangeas are in and blooming! They are certain to brighten your day and your yard! We also have a wide variety of fountains to start sprucing up your yard and outdoor area to prepare for warmer weather. There are large, small and even tabletop fountains available for any space. 

In the Lowcountry, the last official ‘frost date’ is around March 15th – so it is usually best to hold off planting sensitive plants outdoors prior to the end of March. Of course, The Greenery Garden Center DOES have a large selection of trees, shrubs and perennials that can be planted now to get you ready for spring! Just ask anyone at the retail store what might survive a late season frost. Our staff is happy to help.

So whether you are counting on more winter or clinging to the hope of sunshine ahead – come visit The Greenery Garden Center today for all of your gardening needs. 

It is a Great Season to Update Your Yard

We live in a milder climate even in the Winter!  Did you know that in the Lowcountry – this is one of the best times of the year to update your outdoor plantings?

Although the calendar officially welcomes Winter on Dec. 21, thanks to the Lowcountry’s moderate climate – we are fortunate enough to continue to make improvements to our yards well into the winter months. Our warm days and cool nights are perfect for establishing new plants and giving them a chance to take root. Another benefit to this time of year is that generally there are fewer pests – less hungry insects and plant diseases helps to create a healthier environment for plants to flourish. And a more comfortable atmosphere for enjoying your outdoor spaces! It’s not too late to plant perennials, trees and shrubs. 

Pansies

Too many plant options for your landscape have you feeling overwhelmed? Well…the experts at The Greenery are here to help! Most people don’t realize there are many plants that can grow beautifully this time of year in our climate. Some local growers produce late crops of spring and summer flowers that will perform well in Lowcountry landscapes up until a heavy frost. Don’t feel trapped by the “typical” early winter flower choices. Lowcountry landscapes have the unique opportunity to open a world of possibilities that other climates can’t offer. Plants such as Pansies, Violets, Snapdragons and Camellias are flowering summer annuals that can still add that pop of color to your yard. There are also nice foliage plant options to choose from such as Crotons and ornamental cabbage. And don’t forget about the permanent landscape plants that are perfect choices all year round – including Ginger Lilly, Stromathe and Dianella to really make your landscape stand out this season.

violets

Despite our mild temperatures, you may notice a reduction in color in your lawn as the plant reduces leaf blade growth and begins storing energy in its roots to survive the winter. Although you may think that just because your lawn isn’t green then it doesn’t need attention…this simply isn’t true. It is important during this transitional period to assist your lawn in this process. It still needs your help!

Just a few simple tips can help your lawn be the greenest on the block come springtime. Now is a good time to apply a high-potassium winterizer fertilizer to help your lawn prepare ahead of time for its upcoming dormant season. Aerate your lawn to ensure stimulation and nourishment takes place before winter dormancy begins on your landscape.

December is also a great time to trim back dead growth on your trees and perennials on your property to give plants a fresh start for Spring.

With the holidays upon us, it is important to consider updating your landscape and being attentive to your lawn as you welcome more guests to your home for holiday festivities – especially those guests trying to escape the northern winter cold! And with the sun setting earlier each night, this is also a great time to consider installing lighting to enhance your outdoor space.Although December has some of the longest nights in the entire year – that doesn’t mean you have to live in the dark. Outdoor lighting can enhance your property’s value and curb appeal as well as increase the security of you home.

It may almost be winter, but a full landscape installation from The Greenery can have you enjoying time outdoors with your friends and family all season long.

SWEET SUMMERTIME…CALLS FOR A YARD UPGRADE

Summer is finally here and that often means you’ll be spending more time outdoors. This year, you are probably looking forward to long awaited visits from family and friends. And what better way to greet your guests than with a freshly enhanced yard?

The Greenery recently completed an enhancement project for local Lowcountry clients that we would love to share with you for some inspiration.

BEFORE ENHANCEMENTS

Yard Upgrade - Before
Yard Upgrade - Before

We began by removing old plantings that were outdated and overgrown along the entryway area. To fill in the area between the sidewalks and parking, we added Liriope and Asiatic Jasmine as ground cover – both are great choices because they multiply rapidly and require very little care.

We also installed Cypress Hardwood Mulch to help contrast the plantings with the siding of the house.

Our clients desired a new driveway where the pavement wasn’t torn from tree roots and age. They also wanted a larger parking space permitting more vehicles and creating a backup area to avoid backing into the road. They also needed a sidewalk that would take them from the parking area directly to the front of the house where they didn’t have to cut through the yard.

… AND AFTER!

Yard Upgrade - After

Yard Upgrade - After

The new driveway and matching sidewalk compliment the fresh plantings perfectly.

Now these clients (and their freshly enhanced yard) are summertime ready. They are excited to invite their family and friends over to do some outdoor entertaining – one of the best parts of Lowcountry living.

Looking to host your own outdoor party but need to update your plantings first? Then you’ll want to call The Greenery’s Tim Drake at (843) 384-5963.

Turf Troubles

We all love having a thick, lush lawn, but it’s not always so easy to achieve – especially in the coastal region. In an article from the CH2 magazine, Jim van Dijk from the Greenery provides some great information about the unique needs of our Lowcountry landscapes. Here is the article from the magazine:

Turf Troubles? Here’s What Makes Your Lowcountry Yard Unique

by Jim van Dijk, The Greenery

There are countless reasons to love living in the Lowcountry. There’s salt in the air, a temperate climate, and more opportunities to get outside and enjoy nature. Most of the reasons we love to live here though can pose a challenge when nurturing a landscape. Whether you’ve just moved to the area, or maybe you’ve always called the Lowcountry home, it may be time to get acquainted with your unique Lowcountry landscape.

Without getting too technical, our native soil tends to be high in phosphorus and low in nitrogen, which are two tricky elements when it comes to growing turf. Our proximity to the beach means there are more calcium elements in the soil, like oyster shells and sand. This means our yards are missing that rich and organic soil matter you see in other places around the country. When homeowners start to enhance their landscape, they must be aware of how unique our native soil is before starting. “Most people tend to use the ‘kitchen sink’ method when they try to build out their yard,” said Carol Guedalia, Retail Horticulturist at The Greenery, Inc. “That means they are throwing a little bit of everything into their landscape without really understanding which elements will help it grow.”

Carol Guedalia, Retail Horticulturist at The Greenery

Salinity is another big issue in our area. “Salinity makes the turf weak and sets it into a decline,” shared Darren Davis, Residential Operations Manager at The Greenery. “This salt intrusion can be particularly prevalent after a hurricane.” Trees are another factor that makes our area unique. The Lowcountry is predominantly filled with massive live oak trees that have significant root systems. This can cause root intrusion in your landscape, plus backyards with lots of shade areas. Then there’s the heat; we all know how hot and humid this area can get in the summertime. Finally, we can’t leave out the Lowcountry’s prolific deer population. You’ve probably seen them forage and feast on your landscape before. “Deer, like people, are willing to try whatever,” said Guedalia. “You have to protect your landscape and plant appropriately to avoid them eating through your yard.” 

So how does a homeowner combat these elements: low-nutrient and sandy soil, salinity, large oak trees, heat, humidity, and deer? “You always want to consult a professional first, before investing in your landscape,” shared Davis. “Your yard can go wrong in a hurry because there are so many dynamics. Storms bring bugs, hurricanes bring salt. You want to rely on a professional that can continue to evaluate the health of your yard because it’s ever-changing.” One of the first steps you can take is to have your soil tested. Planting the wrong turf can damage your yard in the long run, especially if you accidentally introduce a potential bug or fungal infestation to the landscape. Not to mention, sodding / seeding your landscape is a big investment! You want to be sure you are laying the right type of grass based on the soil in your yard.

Another crucial and proactive measure to take is installing an irrigation system. “Irrigation systems are critical here,” shared Tim Drake, Horticulturalist / Residential Business Developer at The Greenery. “It is just too hot in the summer and coupled with erratic rainfall, you could lose your investment of a lawn or extensive plantings.” There are many new techniques out there to irrigate your lawn, like drip irrigation for plantings, spray for turf, and even systems that can be controlled with an app on your smartphone. “With shallow rooted-plants like your turf, you will need an irrigation system to have a nice and plush yard,” said Davis. “Turf especially needs irrigation throughout the year, but there’s a right way to go about it. You don’t want to over-water the turf, because you want the grass to find its water and not become self-sufficient on your watering schedule.”

You will also want to consult a professional about selecting the right plants for your landscape. “Landscape is all about contrast,” said Davis. “You don’t want all green plants, but you do want enough to create a background to show off other plants. Just as little pop of color can go a long way.” Luckily, many native plants in the Lowcountry require little maintenance, like Yaupon American Hollies. You can also incorporate deer-resistant plants to keep those furry friends at bay. And don’t forget to evaluate the existing trees in your backyard. Most live oaks in this area are large and provide a ton of shade – which is great for your family on hot summer days, but not so great for your plants. “When designing your landscape, there are ways to incorporate shade-tolerant and shallow-rooted plants that will not be as affected by large trees with deep roots,” shared Davis.

Once you’ve consulted a professional and selected the right plants for your landscape, then there are several other considerations to enhance your outdoor spaces. “There are so many options when it comes to outdoor lighting,” said Davis. “Up-lighting at the base of a palm tree can show off the fronds, while down-lighting in an oak tree can light up a large area. It also adds an element of softness and security to the yard.”

There are fragrant plantings like Confederate Jasmine and Tea Olive plants that will enhance the sensory experience of your landscape. These fragrant plantings bloom seasonally and provide incredible smells that are quintessential to a Lowcountry yard. “Consider adding birdbaths and fountains to your landscape,” said Guedalia. “This will attract and feed wildlife, like birds and other pollinators. Plus, fountains can create a peaceful and tranquil sound.” 

Fragrant Confederate Jasmine

With all the challenges a Lowcountry landscape can bring to a homeowner, there are just as many reasons to enjoy it. As we approach warmer weather, we can enjoy our outdoor spaces for longer than most. Just remember to consult a professional before you invest in your landscape!

In The News: Pursue Your Plant Passion at The Greenery

The Bluffton Sun recently published an article entitled “Paradise Promises Plentiful Places To Pursue Plant Passions.” It highlights the best local places to purchase plants and pursue your plant passion. In it, The Greenery Garden Center Gift & Home “wins raves.”

To Prune or Not To Prune

To prune or not to prune – unfortunately that is not the only question. How much, how little, when, and exactly how? These are also important things to consider before you pull those clippers out and start hacking away like Edward Scissorhands. The best thing to do is consult a professional…and that’s where we come in.

Our trained professionals at The Greenery will first take inventory of the shrubs, plants or trees around the property to decide which pruning route to take. Before any pruning takes place, our specialists will consider the reason the plant needs pruning and what the final goal will be. Also, timing is essential. That’s why its always advantageous to consult a professional before you prune because once the pruning takes place – there isn’t an “undo” button.

CORRECTIVE PRUNING

Corrective pruning helps to control the direction and thickness of a plant, tree or shrub. It’s important to start pruning while plants are young to maintain their natural form and avoid the need for drastic corrective pruning later. Corrective pruning can be an essential way to keep many species of trees, plants and shrubs healthy year round.

One example of corrective pruning is thinning a tree or large shrub to allow light to penetrate the plant more effectively. This will result in a healthier plant and more flowers the following season. If you can’t see the sunlight through the leaves of your tree – that may mean it needs some corrective pruning.

Through the removal of dead or damaged limbs, corrective pruning can allow for trees to continue growing efficiently. Our goal is to improve the structural integrity of the tree leading to a longer, healthier lifespan.

RENEWAL PRUNING

If your property is being swallowed up by overgrown shrubs or you look out the windows of the buildings and only see the ‘back’ of shrubs? Then it sounds like you are in need of ‘renewal or rejuvenation pruning.’

Oftentimes, without proper landscape care, pruning can be overlooked for several years. This can cause some trees and shrubs to become overgrown, weak or even unsafe. When this happens, more drastic pruning is necessary to restore the plant’s health.

Renewal pruning can be done to promote better health, enhance the lifespan, and improve the fruiting and flowering of the plant. However, not all plants will benefit from such drastic pruning. Also the condition of the shrub will affect how it responds. Our trained professionals will identify whether a plant will survive and benefit from renewal pruning before ever making one cut.

To rejuvenate an overgrown shrub, we will generally prune it back to 12” to 24” – depending on the type of shrub. Most shrubs will begin to flush out along the exposed trunks within 6 weeks. And by mid summer, you won’t even remember those exposed ugly branches.

Renewal pruning is time consuming and can generate a lot of debris, however, it is a cost-efficient way to get the look of ‘new’ shrubs on your property. If the plants around your buildings, parks or walkways have become overgrown, renewal pruning is a great solution!

As part of our maintenance program, The Greenery’s trained professionals will examine plants, trees and shrubs on your property each year to determine whether they need pruning. And since almost every plant has a different growth habit – we know the specific method of pruning that will benefit each individual plant.

Don’t wait until it’s too late or your shrubs have been butchered! To confidently answer the why? how? and when? of pruning the plants, trees and shrubs on your property – give us a call today. We would be happy to help with the corrective or rejuvenation of your landscape to make it look more appealing to your customers and patrons!

Visited today and LOVED the plant selection, knowledgeable staff, and beautiful gifts. I'll be back every time I visit HH!
