Now that autumn is upon us, we will be servicing our Full Service Grounds Maintenance clients to add seasonal color, prepare for the winter months, and plan for gorgeous blooms next spring. Here's what's on the horizon:
Annual Flower Installation - We'll install pansies for flower beds and flower pots in October.
Irrigation Shutdown- We'll email a notification to all of our Full Service Grounds Maintenance clients sometime in October or November. Contact us if you have questions.
Tulip Installation - Tulips will arrive from Holland on November 12 for installation by the end of that month.
Turf Maintenance - We'll perform turf renovation and repair work in addition to our fall turf program: aeration, fertilization, and overseeding.
Autumn in an ideal time for planting trees and shrubs; contact us if you want to request a quote for this type of work.
DAFFODILS ON ORDER
It's not too late to order daffodils if you want to add them to your 2010 budget; we'll install them in December.
Why do we overseed turf that is already established? There are two major benefits to overseeding. First, you ensure that your turf stays thick and dense. Second, overseeded turf is more disease resistant. For warm season grasses, that go brown in the winter, we overseed with rye to keep the turf looking green and fresh. For fescues, we overseed to compensate for the natural slowing of the turf's reproduction rate (because grass ages).
