A message from Vaughn Willoughby February 2,2015

"Dear friends , 

Thirty two years ago a much younger Vaughn Willoughby, started with a simple idea, and the help and guidance of Chester Honeycutt, Living Landscapes Inc. was founded. Through the years your friendship and trust allowed me to be successful in these endeavors. I have been truly blessed over these years to build these relationships, and I value each and every one.

Today marks the next evolution in our continued journey. After much thought and careful consideration I have decided it is my time to move on and allow the next generation to take the reins.

Living landscapes Inc. is pleased to announce that Mr. Tim Walker and Mr. P.D. Ross have purchased the business from T. Vaughn Willoughby Jr. They both bring a wealth of knowledge and experience from many years in the landscape industry. I have known and worked with them both for many years, and feel very strongly they are the right men to lead the company in the future.

They can be reached at the office by phone (336)227-5769 or by email tim@livinglandscapes.net or pd@livinglandscapes.net

I am excited for the future of Living Landscapes Inc. and know that it is in good hands. They share my vision for what business is about, great customer service and going above and beyond customer's expectations. My hope is that you will embrace these young men, the same way you accepted me, those many years ago.


T. Vaughn Willoughby Jr.

  •  Replenish mulch or pine needles, where needed.
  •  Apply a pre-emergent weed control on top of new mulch to prevent weeds from germinating. Follow label directions.
  • If you have thin or bare areas in your yard, reseed them this month. If you to this though, you cannot apply pre-emergence crab-grass control as well.
  • By the 15th, apply slow release fertilizer with pre-emergence crabgrass prevention to fescue lawns if it is not done in February, and if you are not putting out grass seed at this time.Begin mowing this monthContinue to plant trees, shrubs, and groundcovers.
  • Water thoroughly when planted, and continue to water throughout the growing season every week if we have not had 1” of soaking rain.
  •  This time of year thunderstorms occur, which can dump a lot of rain in a short amount of time. This moisture usually is run-off and does not soak into the ground. Don’t let these quick rains fool you on your watering schedule.
  • Fertilize established trees and shrubs with a fertilizer that is higher in nitrogen.
  • Prune and fertilize Camellia japonicas after blooming. Use fertilizer formulated for acid loving plants.In late March . prune Roses (floribundas, hybrid teas, and grandifloras) to approx. 15’-18’, leaving 3-5 strong canes/ begin rose spray program as soon as new growth occurs. Follow label directions.
  • This program of spraying should continue all summer.With everything going on outside this month, don’t forget to take some time to watch all of the exciting college basketball games going on this month. You gotta love March madness!
