VALUED CUSTOMERS & FRIENDS+

Thank you to all of our guests who visited us in Dwell Outdoor and came to support Cassy’s presentations!  It’s always comforting to have so many friends and clients engaged in these events.  We know there will be savvy questions and profoundly useful conversations.

We are also grateful to the Dwell organization for providing a beautiful forum for discussing important issues like drought and the evolving outdoor look of Los Angeles.

Sincerely,

Cassy and Kirk Aoyagi

WHAT TO EXPECT+

Los Angeles is expected to be a dry county through the summer. Just because it will be difficult (and expensive!) for thirsty plants doesn’t mean your garden needs to look desiccated come BBQ time. We’ll be putting extra effort into keeping native gardens vibrant and party ready. We will:

Get ready to party!

  • Deadhead to keep summer blooms coming
  • Refresh container gardens for added pop
  • Check oaks for pruning (July – September)
  • Check lighting for efficiency and drama
  • Shine up hardscapes and ready BBQs!

Invite water to stay

  • Eliminate run-off and overspray
  • Inspect irrigation systems for leaks
  • Check the coverage of drip irrigation systems
  • Mulch, mulch, mulch and raise mower heights to keep moisture in the soil
  • Water by hand where necessary
