2019 September Newsletter

Welcome to September’s Newsletter

It’s hard to believe that we are already in the 9th month of 2019. We have certainly had an interesting summer with what feels like plenty of rain & clouds. Hopefully you and your family have found time to relax and enjoy this summer season. As fall approaches, we have our annual fall preparation reminders.

  • KOI OWNERS: As the water temperature dips below 60 degrees, we want to switch back to a cool season/wheat germ food (we sell this at the nursery). Continue feeding fish until the temperature hits 50-55 degrees (typically mid-October).
  • AQUATIC PLANTS: Fertilize your lilies and other aquatic plants one more time in September, to continue to get flowers.
  • TERRESTRIAL PLANTS: It is still a great time to put plants in the ground. You will only have a few weeks left to water before the October rains start.
  • SALE: buy three plants (terrestrial or aquatic), get one free. It’s not too late to enjoy more life in your pond or around the garden!
  • SALE: Fish $35 or more are buy three, get one free.
  • SALE: All display fountains are 15% off.
  • Several display fountains are on clearance!
  • SALE: Pumpkins, owls, & jack-o-lanterns are 75% off!
  • LANDSCAPE DESIGN: Fall is an excellent time to hire our landscape company, Falling Water Designs, to finish (or start) those landscape projects you were unable to complete during the busy spring and summer months. Falling Water Designs works year round, whether it’s creating garden designs for new clients, cleaning and repairing ponds, or installing ponds, patios, fire-pits, etc. Let us assist your needs!


This month’s How-To helps pond and water feature owners prepare for fall and winter. Our What’s New And On Sale is always changing and our inventory is limited, so be sure to check out our featured decor and garden art. For information on classes, events, and weddings, click here.

Take a look at our landscaping team’s Most Recent projects. They have been working non-stop this summer!

For plants that are looking great in the garden and available for purchase at the nursery, head over to the Cool Plants section.

This month we are introducing Kikokuryu. Learn more about this koi breed here.
