As we grow and times continue to shift and change, we adapt as well. This year, a part of this for us is implementing new tracking software for our crews. We’ve been working with the new software for a few months now. While it has been a learning process, we are beginning to see the fruits of our labor. What does this mean for our maintenance clients? The new tracking software “talks” to our accounting software. This is the first invoice cycle that we have fully implemented the new software so you may find that your invoice looks a little different. Please reach out to us if you need any clarification or if you have any questions. We are happy to help you! Each invoice has been reviewed for accuracy, but we’re human and it’s possible that we still missed something. Thank you for your patience and for your business!
This season has been a challenge since it started. Between our shutdown in March due to Covid 19 and the rain, we are behind on all services. The spring clean ups and mulching are ongoing and we are working our way through the list. Because each week has been so unpredictable, we are not scheduling jobs like usual. Instead, we are looking at our list and sending the crews out when we are able. We appreciate your understanding and patience as we try to get to everyone.
The mowing crews are struggling as well. We are working late on the nice days to try to get everyone cut each week. As the rain gets less and less each week, we are planning on getting everyone back to their normal mow days. We want to thank everyone for being patient and understanding the past few weeks.
Looking ahead, our goal is to finish the cleanups and mulching by July 4th as long as the weather cooperates with us. Once we are done with those, we will start getting ready for the summer pruning. This pruning is to shape the shrubs and clean up the growth since the spring pruning was completed. If you did not sign up for a mid-summer pruning but would like it done, just let us know. We are happy to come out, take a look at your shrubs and work up pricing.
Creeping Myrtle is a fast growing ground cover plant that is great for spaces where other flowers won’t grow, like under pine trees. It will take root and spread over the area in no time. It has a lavender flower that contrasts well with the dark green leaves. The flower blooms in the spring and summer, making it an excellent plant to blend with daisies and daffodils. There is little care involved with this plant. Just water it every few days, and make sure you keep the undergrowth cut out so that Creeping Myrtle Vine looks healthy.
The ground cover reaches a height of six inches and spreads by sending out runners as far as 18 inches that root where nodes touch the ground. The extended rooting process is quick and makes for a fast ground cover with lush results.
