We are performing the Sprinkler System Checks & Repair services. You should have your irrigation set to run 4-5 days per week, 10 minutes on pop-up zones and 20-25 minutes on rotating zones.

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.

Prune shrub roses and ornamental grasses this month.

The month of Feburary is the ideal time to prune shrub roses and cut back ornamental grasses.

The illustration above shows the proper way to trim roses.  Notice that all of the smaller canes/growth has been removed, leaving only the 4-7 largest main canes only.  Shrub roses should be cut to approx. 12-18" from the soil surface.  Don't be afraid to get aggressive with your roses, they will thrive on this type of pruning and you will amazed at the production they will provide this year.

Ornamental Grasses should be cut to a mound approx. 8-20" off the ground depending on the size of the grass.  Smaller, dwarf grasses can almost be cut nearly to the ground while larger grasses may need to be cut in a 20-24" mound.  Please don't hesitate to call us if you have any questions on these prunings.
