This time of the year we have already started laying out new routes for lawn cutting our equipment is being serviced and we are buying whatever […]

Fall Cleanups, Leaf Removal & Landscape Projects

We are still a couple of weeks away from ending another great season. We are working up to Christmas with fall cleanups, leaf removal projects and landscape plantings to complete. The rain ruins any chance of doing our work and lately we have had several days each week of rain.

The daytime temperatures are still warm keeping the soil temperatures warm and the cooler nights help retain more moisture. We begin doing spot herbicide spraying of lawns […]
