Lisa's Landscape Corner


I hope you are enjoying the cooler weather….well, it's getting there! Next week promises to be in the 80s, winding its way to the fall weather. That nearly three-week stretch of rainy days far exceeds the previous records of 12 straight days in both 1967 and 1998. Henderson, Aliante and Summerlin have received upwards of two inches total! Some areas have seen debris and decomposed granite (colored soils) moving through their neighborhoods - I hope you are not one of them!

After the cleanup from all the rain it’s time to plant. Cool season annuals include African daisies, pansies, ornamental kale, hollyhock, poppies and petunias. Cool season vegetables include root vegetables like carrots, beets, parsnips and leeks. Leafy veggies can be planted from seed now and those include spinach, parsley, lettuce and kale. And for the kids, cauliflower, broccoli and Brussels sprouts - their favorites.

October is the very best month to plant trees in Southern Nevada. Remember to get smaller trees when you can. And if you are planning to plant fruit trees, they will be coming available very soon. I recommend you check for hot desert varieties; great plant lists are available from the Cooperative Extension Service or call the Master Gardener Hotline at (702) 257-5555.


Barkules Speaks!

Have you met Barkules? He is the cute puppy mascot at the Heritage Park Bark Park! This oversized play structure for children is six feet tall and 18 feet long, and loyally stands watch over the park.

Starting next month, Barkules will be hosting his very own column - "Barkules Speaks". Working with our Animal Control officers, he will provide tips for your pets and information on adoptable animals in our shelter.

Until then, don't forget to visit the Animal Control website to view dogs and cats that are waiting for  new homes.
