Wow, what a crazy year it has been! After a slow start, we finally got up and running. While everything has run longer than we expected, it’s nice to see fall is actually on schedule for the first time in a while. When I am writing the monthly newsletters, I always look back at the previous few years to see how things compare. Last year at this time, the leaves were holding on and we were playing a waiting game with them. This year, they are falling nicely. We have had some spectacular color on the trees as well.
Our crews are working through the fall clean up roster and if you haven’t seen us yet don’t worry, we will be there soon. The end of October was quite rainy so we are hoping that November’s weather cooperates with us for the next few weeks. As part of the clean up, the crews are cutting down grasses and perennials as well as cleaning up the leaves. We do have a few spots open for fall clean up in case you find yourself in a pinch or simply decide to hire it out. Just give us a call and we can come out to take a look at the property for you.
The other thing we are working on is finishing up our fertilizer for the year. We will be finishing up our second to last application the first week of November and will then be ordering the fertilizer for our last application. If you are thinking about starting a fertilizer program next year, this is actually a great time to start. The last round is a high nitrogen application that the grass stores and uses in the spring to give it that nice dark green color. This round is different than the rest of the applications because it is put down in a granular form rather than liquid.
Planning ahead means that we are working on mapping out our snow routes. Our current clients are given first claim for spots on the routes. At this point, we do have a few spots available! If you are looking for a snow removal provider and would like to discuss some options that we can provide, just give Jason a call (330-715-5863). He will be happy to come out, evaluate your property, and work up pricing for you.
