Even COVID-19 can’t stop the dandelions! Lawns have awakened and grass growth is in full swing, which means the nemesis of many people is also starting as well. The dandelions have made a strong run this year with many lawns going from green to yellow in a matter of days. Is this a problem you are having? We have designed 2 different fertilizer programs you can choose from to combat these little yellow annoyances. Both of our programs have an herbicide spray in them coming up next to attack them. If you have not signed up for a program yet but would like to discuss your options, just let me know. It is never too late to get started on a program.
The Jack Pear is a one of a kind ornamental tree. Beautiful white blooms appear in early Spring before the leaves come out. Mine is blooming now and it is full of beautiful blossoms.
It also has a golden fall color with hues of red. It is ideal for urban landscapes. If you’re looking for a tree to fit a smaller space, consider the Jack Pear. Reaching 15 to 20 ft. tall, 10 to 12 ft. wide, they don’t get that large. They’re generally problem-free, make a good yard accent and are perfect under power lines.
The Jack Pear produces scant half inch yellow-green fruit that look like little pears. These are thoroughly enjoyed by the squirrels, chipmunks, and especially the birds. We’ve even seen deer under ours munching on a Winter meal.
They are deciduous and lose their leaves in the Fall. It is recommended that you plan the Jack Pear in full sun.
What a year 2020 has started off to be! Winter did not bring much snow and Spring has brought lockdowns and social distancing. Our crews are doing what we can to keep things going as much as we are able. Our employees were issued masks to wear and will continue to use them for the foreseeable future. We will continue to monitor the recommendations and mandates set out by the Governor and his team. As things change, we will do our best to make those changes part of our company policy. Our main focus is the safety of our crews and clients.
Our mowing crews have started and are trying to keep up with all the lawns we take care of. The rain is making things difficult, like every Spring, but we will continue to mow what we are able. Our mowing routes are in the process of being finalized so you may notice a change in the crew taking care of your property. Once the routes are set, we try to keep from making changes. We want our crews to know the lawns they take care of so you can expect the same results every week.
Our enhancement crews are working on the spring clean ups and have just recently started mulching again. We appreciate your understanding as we have worked our way through properties and have had to split services unlike previous years.
If you have projects that you are looking at, please let us know. We are still doing estimates for projects, just with more phone communication than before, and are working on getting them into the schedule.
We hope you and your family are staying safe and healthy and look forward to helping you through what ever this year holds.
