A Bud of a Neighbor

Amaryllis belladonna was introduced into cultivation at the beginning of the eighteenth century from South Africa. More...

June Bugs Are Prompt Little Buggers

Here they come! June bugs are on the rise, and fittingly so. They get their name from emerging in great quantities in the month of June. They are also referred to as May beetles (leave it to the early risers), or genus Phyllophaga. There are 300 species of beetles belonging to the plant-eating sub-family Melolonthinae and share genetic roots with the Egyptian Scarab. They go through four stages of development: egg, larva, pupa and adult. The larva lives in the ground for 2-3 years before surfacing to become an adult, killing lawns by severing grasses from their roots. Good news… they are on the menu for toads, lizards and moles, and make excellent fish bate. Shop closed, gone fishing!


You May Have Spotted Tree Down at the Steps

Yellow tape marked a downed tree at the Kessler Steps, and prompted an area closure until removal & inspection could be performed and safety accessed. This task fell on the City of Dallas, and municipal protocol can be a lengthy process. KNU partners with the City on beautification of some public spaces, both parties fulfilling certain maintenance roles. We appreciate the reports we received from residents and your patience when the unexpected happens.
