Landscaping for the Holidays

Posted by San Diego Landscaper on Wednesday, 29 July , 2015

If you want your San Diego yard to look great for the holidays, you may want the assistance of a group of professionals like JCMS! We are happy to help you choose the right plants as well as install hardscapes, walks and other additions to get your yard ready for company or just for your family to enjoy during the holiday season!

No Snow, Thank Goodness!

San Diego residents are very fortunate not to have to deal with snow and ice. This allows us to choose plants that can thrive all year, even during the depths of winter. These plants can add tone and color to your landscape no matter what the season with the worry of frost or freeze!

Here are some recommendations for plants that will liven up your winter landscape and make your home beautiful through the holiday season and beyond:

  • Gaillardia, Gaillardia x grandiflora. This bloom is called the “blanket flower” in southern California because its warm colors blanket beds with daisy-like blossoms. Great for cutting and arranging, Gaillardia, which is Spanish for “bravery,” is a great addition to any bed, growing only two to three feet and requiring very little maintenance. If you want winter blooms, you can get them as long as the temps are above freezing, but you must plant early in order to get the best show around the holidays.
  • Red Hot Pokers, Kniphofia sp. As the name implies, Red Hot Pokers boast brilliant blooms in both winter and summer. Most varieties grow to three feet, making them a great bed backdrop, although dwarf varieties are available. Choose bright red rather than the calm coral shade for holiday planting.
  • Mexican Sage, Salvia leucantha. This perennial sage will grow from four to six feet with little care and will bloom from fall through winter. It is also drought resistant and very low-maintenance, making it the perfect addition to a flower bed if you do not want to spend too much time gardening.
  • Holly, Ilex cornuta. The cornuta variety of holly produces beautiful red berries and just seems to fit in with the holiday spirit, bringing a bit of cheer reminiscent of colder climates to sunny California. It also make a great shrub the rest of the year.

    I must say that Juniper Landscape Company exceeded my expectations, completing the job in a timely fashion and for a fair price which we negotiated ahead of time, and which did not change even though there were difficulties with the terrain around my home in Stonebridge Estates (Scripps Ranch). Juniper Landscape Company was on-time,... Read More

    I have a side strip of yard which is on the street. The original landscaping was VERY high maintenance and not attractive. I was always out there cleaning up the leaf litter or be fined by the HOA. I hired Juniper Landscape Company. They came out and actually listened to what I wanted. They... Read More

    Juniper Landscape Company has been fantastic. Before them, we ran through three or four other lawn and landscape maintenance companies who did spotty and sometimes outright poor work, were not always reliable and who ended up creating problems for us in a variety of ways. That experience led us to subscribe to Angie's List... Read More
