Turf Maintenance
We are applying Round 5 of our 7 Round Turf Program. Round 5 is a liquid application targeting nutsedge, broadleaf, and grassy weeds in the lawn. Turf Managers will also assess lawns at this time to determine if and what is needed as far as a Fall Lawn Renovation. Aeration, verticutting and overseeding being the common items to be done in order to keep the lawn full and thick. If you are interested in starting your personalized turf health plan please give us a call.

Plant Health Care
We are currently applying Round 3 of our plant insecticide program for the 2017 season. Round 3 is a treatment to control primarily spider mites on spruce, junipers and burning bush. Please call to schedule a consultation with one of our certified Arborist today.

Mowing Service
The mowing season has begun and will run weekly from now until the end of October. Due to the rainy weather they may be behind a day or two but will work weekends to catch up. If you are interested in the weekly mowing service, please contact the office.

Should I bag my clippings?

Many people beleive that bagging your clipping helps to limit and reduce the thatch layer in your lawn.  This is not correct.  Thatch is not made up of grass clippings.  It is made up of decay resistant such as surface roots, runners and stems found close to the soil surface.  Grass Clippings are made up of soft tissue that is 85-90% water.  Therefore, when clippings are left to dry on the soil they shrink by 90%.  The advantages of letting clippings fall into the soil are 1) It takes less a third less time to mow 2) Up to 25% of the fertilizer nutrients are returned to the soil and 3) Reducing trash by 10% means less space is taken in landfills and fewer plastic bags are taken to the landfill.  Clippings contain approx. 4% nitrogen, .5% phosphorus and 2% potassium.
