2018 brings a new, bigger and better Sparks store and 2018 will see a continuation of our efforts to turn our "high desert advice" into VIDEOS ... yes, we have fact sheets and information all over this website that is specific to where we live; because, we all know that information obtained nationally or from California is not necessarily accurate for our high desert gardening & landscaping. Now, we are turning our high desert advice into videos too. Take a look here! We will be working to grow this libarary of videos to provide another source of local information and to make our promise come alive ... Better Plants. Better Advice. Better Results.

Our newest and exxclusive tool for identifying high desert plants and their important characteristics ... Plant Finder is now available here!  Information obtained on plants from non-local sources is often incorrect for our environment & geography.

The 2018 Rewards Program with over 41,000 local household members has beenimproved; qualifying members get cash certificates ... purchases can be rewarding ... see how.  2018 improved Rewards program ... see it here.  For the 11th year in a row, Moana Nursery has achieved its own reward ...  picked from among thousands by industry experts as a top 100 garden center nationwide. But, most importantly, we were again voted as the BEST local garden center ... where we live! Thank You!

Our landscape maintenance staff has put together for a comprehensive calendar of when maintenance tasks should be performed.  Our high desert experience has shown that "instructions" without the benefit of local knowledge are most times wrong.  And, a new manual of specific and relevant maintenance activities is now given out at the completion of each landscape services project. To view the calendar or "The Essential Maintenance Manual" see our Landscape Services home page.  Plus, come see our selection of high desert approved, water-wise and drought tolerant landscape plants.

New gift and garden essential products and a full line of Gardner & Bloome organic products (G&B Organics) & Bonide recommended best products for the high desert.

How Much Water??? (a question we are asked often)
The answer to that question is ... you need to water enough to keep the soil evenly moist. With our warm and windy weather and especially for new plantings, that may mean every day but probably not. Until you get a good feel for how much water your plants need, the best thing to do is to gently poke around the soil just below the surface and adjacent to the root ball. The soil just outside the root ball should be moist but not wet. If you were to grab a handful it would clump together when squeezed but not drip any water. Factors such as sun exposure, wind, soil conditions and your irrigation method will all influence the water frequency needed. Eventually infrequent but deep watering will keep your plants healthy but until they develop an established root system you will need to monitor them closely.
