Know before you grow. 
When we saw a group of pitiful sago palms, we knew we had to write about them (wait 'til you see our photos). Not highly recommended unless you're dedicated to their care, and even then you face some challenges. Fortunately, ArtisTree offers a couple of hardy alternatives for you to consider. 

Seasonal shade syndrome 
Thanks to ArtisTree Landscape Designer Brian Clouser for sending us a dramatic photo comparison of discolored shrubs affected by seasonal sun exposure -- all because of poor plant placement. Here's how to avoid potential disappointment in Florida's winter months. 

Mother Nature is finished.
Mother Nature is finally finished running her course with winter weather. This past season her cold shoulder caused lawns to turn brown in certain areas, causing concern for a few of ArtisTree's community residents. These facts and Spring's arrival will put your mind at ease.

Wet Check/Irrigation Report
The following is a helpful guide / example of how to read your wet check reports from the ArtisTree irrigation team. 

The top line of the report shows what time the irrigation is set to run (pictured above, the irrigation runs at 2:00 AM on Tuesday and Friday). Column A shows the zone around the house, and column B shows the type of irrigation in that zone (S=Spray, R=Rotary, D=Dripline). For example, according to this wet check, this home had 4 spray nozzles replaced in zone 1 (front left side of home) and 2 spray nozzles replaced in zone 4 (right side of home). ArtisTree will replace any broken heads they encounter during the monthly wet checks, otherwise a work order needs to be submitted if broken heads are discovered during the remainder of the month.

Please Note: If the Repairs Made/Parts Replaced section is blank, the wet check was completed and no repairs or replacements were required.
