PollyDog Landscapes – Naturally

PollyDog Landscapes is a landscape design, consultation, and lawn and garden care company specializing in the planning and organic care of native and drought tolerant landscapes for the Austin Hill Country since 2005.

The Hill Country has long been known for its abundant springs, rivers, and lakes. The frequent droughts and sudden population growth are threatening those beautiful waterways that we hold dear. In an effort to help to protect our rivers, lakes, and aquifers PollyDog uses only all natural, non-toxic fertilizers and pest and disease control methods.

Our landscape design plans focus on reducing water usage without sacrificing the color and beauty most valued in a home landscape. A drought tolerant landscape does not have to be cactus and gravel. There are many beautiful, xeric plants available that provide color, movement, and a wide assortment of textures to the landscape.

PollyDog currently provides services to the Hill Country communities along the south shore of Lake Travis; including Spicewood, Briarcliff, Lakeway, Bee Caves, and Westlake.

Weeds, weeds, weeds!

It is that time of year again. Cool season weeds are gloriously happy and warm season weeds are about to pop up.There is not much to be done for the cool season weeds. If you have not stayed on top of them the past few months, just mow them down, bag them if you can to reduce the number of seeds scattered, and hope for warmer weather.
To help control the warm season weeds, apply corn gluten now. Like, right now. After Valentine’s Day it will be too late. Warm season weeds are about to sprout and then all the corn gluten will do is fertilize your lawn. Which is not a bad thing, just a pit pricey if it’s not working to control your weeds too.
