APRIL 2014 NEWSLETTER
 
SPRING IS OFFICIALLY HERE...
  
 The official arrival of Spring has come and gone, but it sure hasn't felt like it.  The recent blizzard that hit the Eastern part of the state certainly proved that winter just doesn't want to let go.  Everyone is tired of the long, cold, snowy winter!  The onset of warmer temperatures is only around the corner.  The growing season will be here soon, and it's time to prepare yours lawns, landscapes and sprinkler systems. 
 
REMINDER!!!!!!
  
 Our "Service Renewals" were mailed out in February.  If you haven't returned your renewal yet, be sure to do so as soon as possible.  Early scheduling allows us to serve all of our clients efficiently and promptly.  If you  have any questions regarding your renewal, or if you would like additional service quotes, please contact us.  We are currently preparing our equipment, trucks and crews, getting ready to begin services within a week or so, weather permitting.
 
OFFICE HOURS-
 
    Our office is now back to full time hours, Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. until 4 p.m, and ready to help you.  We would like to introduce the newest member of our office team, Kathleen "Kat" Rusin.
"Kat" has been on board since February, and has been working hard to learn our customers and their needs.  She is looking forward to work with you.
  
THINGS TO DO IN EARLY SPRING...
 

* service your mowing and garden equipment so it is ready to go

* remove fallen branches, twigs, leaves, etc.

* lightly rake lawns and clean landscape beds,

   avoid heaving raking so as not to disturb soil

   controls to landscape beds

  lawns (now through mid to late May)

* prune plants that need to be cut back heavily

  which will allow them to fill in for the season 

* clean and start water gardens

* inspect low voltage landscape lighting fixtures, replace bulbs

   as needed

YOUR TREES AND SHRUBS NEED CARE TOO!
 

Your valuable trees and shrubs are constantly being threatened by insects and diseases, as well as heat stress and drought, throughout the growing season.  Winter's harsh and dramatic temperature changes can also threaten plants.  In addition, regular fertilizing of your valuable landscape plantings is critical to their survival, and to maintain a strong and healthy root system.  The specific timing of shrub and tree treatments will protect your valuable investment for years.     

 

 

Our program is designed for year long protection, including:  

  • DORMANT OIL SPRAY (APRIL)
  • INSECT/DISEASE CONTROL SPRAY I (MAY-JUNE)
  • INSECT/DISEASE CONTROL SPRAY II (JULY-AUGUST)
