If you arc buying or building a new home, or are about to re landscape an older home, you have probably wondered whether or not you should hire a landscape architect. Actually, the cost of the services of a landscape architect is more of an investment than it is an expenditure. The landscape architect is trained to design you a permanent, attractive, trouble-free garden. If you had a way of evaluating an architect's services over a period of years, we have no doubt that it would save you much time and money in the long run. Preliminary Plan What services does a landscape architect perform? First, he will prepare a preliminary plan showing all existing details and proposed changes, if any, and probably perspective and elevation sketches. After discussing the prelimin aries with you, he will prepare a general plan to include corrections, show dimensions and materials, and will include con' struction notes and detail sheets. If your site is irregular, it may require a separate grading plan The planting plan and plant list is usually included in the gener al plan. If sprinklers are to be installed, a separate irrigation play may be prepared. Cost Will Vary About cost, each architect has his own system of charging. Some state a flat fee based upon the size and shape of the land and how much work is needed. Others charge a percentage of the total cost of the completed landscape. In some instances, an architect will work on an hourly basis. And the cost will vary, depending on whether or n o t you want the architect to supervise the installation. As a cost example, the total architect's fee for the landscape design and supervision of the installation of a local one-t h i r d acre home site was approximately three hundred dollars. Certainly this isn't exorbitant, based upon the time involved and the value of the services performed. Doubtless this cost would be more than offset by the immediate increase in the resale value of the home. But if the home isn't sold, the savings in maintenance time and cost in three to give years would more than compensate for the cost of the professional services. Don't overfeed fruit trees Fertilizing fruit trees of all kinds can be overdone. If soils are moderately heavy to heavy, feeding fruit trees is generally unnecessary in the home garden. In sandy soils, a light application once each year in the spring of a nitrogenous plant food such as ammonium sulfate, will improve fruit quality. All fruit trees benefit greatly from a thick mulch which will keep roots cool in summer and hold down moisture robbing weeds. Sear Ends of Stems Poinscttias and other flowers having milky sap will last much longer after they are cut if the cut stems are seared over an open flame soon after they are cut.

Stuart 793-2203 Orange trees benefit from nitrogen Home garden orange trees will benefit greatly from several applications each year of a nitrogenous fertilizer.
