Arbor and Water Feature

This Arbor was used to help block the view of the stone driveway from the house. However this design became much more and grew to include the water feature and plantings.Wisteria covers the Arbor and is beautiful when blooming in spring.

Patio in the Trees

Kingdom Landscape of Tulsa created a place way above the ground to give this the feeling of being in a tree house. A contemporary design was used for this deck. A lovely way to relax at the end of a day.

Plant in Fall for Spring Color in Tulsa!

Tulsa has one of the most beautiful Springs because of the available range of plants. Azaleas, Dogwoods ,perennials and various other flowering trees and bushes add to the charm of our Spring season. Planning and planting now will insure that your Spring is everything you could hope for in the garden!

Arborvitaes: Surviving Tulsa's Hottest Summers

Tulsa has seen some of its hottest summers over the last 2 years. Arborvitaes have been dying or have died back so much that they had to be removed. However the arborvitaes that have survived were protected by shade from the West Sun. They will not grow as well in shade but they did survive, Consider using them by placing where they will get morning sun till about noon and shade for the remainder of the day, and of course water consistently.

Screening with plants...Tulsa

There are many great plants that work in our climate for the purpose of screening. I will be using different examples over the next few days.This picture illustrates the use of Arborvitaes and Crape Myrtles. Using an evergreen like Arborvitae will give a solid wall of foliage over time, while the Crape Myrtle adds a dimension of color and depth to the design.
