  1. One of the site members here has an apartment available for sub-lease in West Campus at The Block on Leon Street. The Block The apartment is a 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom and is unfurnished and currently has one person living there (male). If anyone is interested please post here and he will get in touch with you.
  2. When is the best time to start that new landscape? RIGHT NOW I am often asked “when is the best time to install a new landscape?†What better way to answer that question on a large scale than by starting the August column with that question? When I consider when the best time to install, I look at the hottest, most stressful time of summer and try to create the largest window of time I can between install date and that hottest part of summer. That would mean that the end of summer (August) would be the beginning of prime time to install landscapes. So how do you get the ball rollin
  3. The Heat of Summer is Here, But Don't Sweat It! July is here, welcome to summer in Texas. Coming into this month, we’re sitting in much better shape than we have in the past. Here just north of DFW, we’ve had only one day of 100 degrees so far and ample rainfall. We’re pretty green going into July and thats a very good thing. What to do this month? July is not really a month of growing, but a month of surviving. Most plants will not look their best in high heat conditions like we’ll have this month. So the focus this month is surviving and improving our chances of better perfor
  4. How to deal with stone vendors An acquaintance of mine who lives in another state shared with me a story about their experience with one of their do-it-yourself projects at their home. He and his wife had decided to create a sitting area in the back landscape where they could sit with friends around a fire pit which they would also build. So he sketched out a drawing of what they wanted it to look like. They decided what materials they would need and how much. After determining costs, they proceeded with their project. Unfortunately, it didn’t get off to a good start. They ordere
  5. — Twitter API (@twitterapi) November 7, 2011 Didn't see this posted anywhere, this was from last Saturday. I'd like to think we live in a world where stopping to check if people ok isn't big news, but we don't. We as a society (I am guilty of this as well) are so consumed with our own business/agendas and getting everywhere as fast as possible that we may miss a chance to help someone in need.
  6. Hello Growing Season! April is here and that’s a big deal in the landscape business. Everyone wants to get outside and enjoy the mild weather and get their landscapes in order. And that’s what we’ll talk about in this month’s edition of the Landscape Column. Let’s start with those of you who have spent the winter inside or have avoided the landscape through the winter until now. I would suspect you have a major clean up due. Get rid of those leaves! You’ll see piles of leaves blown into corners of the landscape, around your shrubs and low growing perennials. They have t
  7. The Rains are Coming, Is Your Property Ready For It? I’m going to talk about drainage this month. I’m doing this now because the spring rains are just over the horizon now and hopefully talking about it now will help you later in the month and beyond. Some may be thinking – “why do I need to read about drainage? I’ve been in my house 5 years and have had no problems.†While that may be true, the only certainty in life – and landscapes – is change. Drainage problems can be caused by a number of things but most often its simply time and changing terrain or added/removed fe
  8. Most years there's always someone on both sides of the ball, sometimes more than one who exceeds expectations or progresses farther along than most thought possible. Who will those guys be this year? Malik Jefferson wasted no time in making his name known in the Big 12, but suffered somewhat of an off year last year. An emergence from that slump would be nice this year. This year I'm thinking Chris Warren picks up where Foreman left off. I saw some real magic when he ran the ball, before he was hurt. I think we'll see that again. And I think he has the coach who can make the splash
  9. I sat down with mrs joeywa last night and watched Tower. It's a documentary about the 1966 tower shootings on the UT Campus. http://www.towerdocumentary.com/ If you have the time, I strongly suggest you watching it. Wow. From the story itself, (which I was already familiar with,) to the way it was filmed to include first hand accounts, actual footage mixed with animation, to the music and the interviews, this film was amazing. I watched the trailer above, and really questioned whether I'd like that type of format. I didn't just like it, I loved it. VERY well done.

  11. Ok, we have the head coach we think will take us to the promised land. Who will he hire to help get this team there? Early word I've heard is that Tim Brewster will be among the staff Herman brings in. That would be big, IMO. Does anyone else hope that Traylor is retained?????
  12. Beware the cold, dry winter! Weather has trended dry in much of Texas during December, with January the driest month still ahead One of the last things most folks want to think about during the month of January is their landscape. After all, it’s cold out there. lol . . well, sometimes it is. One of the things we have to look at each month is what the previous month brought us. The southeastern and northeastern parts of Texas received ample rainfall during December. The rest of the state did not. So much of Texas is a little dry right now. No big deal, right? It’s January, wha
  13. I have a few political insiders sources . . . telling me Texas-Ex, BMD and Exxon mogul Rex Tillerson is about to be named Secretary of State. He was interviewed by Trump and word is he knocked it out of the park. Hook'em!
  14. This is a new hype song for the '16 UT Longhorn Football team. Press play and share to get the fans and players pumped up! Hook 'Em Horns!
  15. What are these mushrooms in my lawn! One of the most common questions I get each growing season is “Help! I have mushrooms in my lawn! What do I do?†The answer – absolutely nothing. Or, if you’re like me, you’ll practice your field goal kicking skills with them. lol The appearance of mushrooms in your lawn is nothing to worry about. It means you have a lot of organic matter in your turf/soil, which is a very good thing. It also means that things became damp and probably overcast for a few days. When these conditions come together, the fungi in the soil will explode and gr
  16. April is here and it marks the real beginning of spring. It is indeed one of the busiest months on the calendar for landscapers and is an exciting time of year to be outside. Let’s jump right into this as there is much to talk about this month. FERTILIZATION Go ahead and plan to fertilize now that April is here. A couple of notes for you folks out there staring at the Home Depot and Lowes shelves wondering what to buy. If you have St Augustine turf, you want to buy a fertilizer or weed/feed product that is designed for use in St Augustine turf. You folks who have Zoysia o

  18. Longhorn Nation: Here at the University of Texas at Austin, a group of highly motivated, proud Longhorns are seeking to start an official University of Texas Longhorn Olympic Weightlifting Team that will compete for championships, nationally, internationally, and at the Olympics. UT has produced Olympians in Track and Field, Swimming and Diving, and has sent an astonishing number of first-class Longhorns into professional sports competition, world-wide. There is simply no earthly reason that the University of Texas at Austin should not DOMINATE Olympic Weightlifting. A donation would be g
  19. Hello, My name is Luis Veras Landron and I'm currently a freshman at the McCombs School of Business here at The University of Texas. Last fall I attempted to walk-on to the football team, and after months of training I have decided to try out in the spring again. Throughout the months leading up to spring tryouts I created a video showcasing what I'm capable of. Please find the YouTube link to the video attached below: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sz_l9rgyrMU Any positive feedback or constructive criticism is all I'm asking for! Thank you and Hook 'Em! -Luis Veras Landron
  20. I came to The University of Texas in 1964 on a recruiting trip for the Texas Football team, which was then under legendary coach Darrell K Royal. As I watched Coach Royal’s team practice that day in Gregory Gym, I could feel the electricity from the players and coaches. It’s a feeling I’ve never forgotten, and I doubt I ever will. The teamwork, enthusiasm, pride, integrity and dedication that extends across the Forty Acres have kept my wife and me involved with The University of Texas long after we were students. It is with great joy that I now return to serve as the Interim Texas Men’
  21. UT athletics just released major news. Long-time SID John Bianco is leaving "to pursue other interests"
  22. Courtesy of UT Athletics: AUSTIN, Texas — The University of Texas athletic programs once again have their annual set of data to prove the Longhorns are advancing toward their ultimate goal – to graduate all student-athletes. UT surpassed the required NCAA standard in all 20 of its intercollegiate athletics sport programs, according to the multi-year NCAA Division I Academic Progress Rate (APR) released on Wednesday. “Academic excellence continues to be a hallmark of Texas Athletics programs, and we’re pleased to see the progress toward graduation all our student-athletes
