Tips From the Pros

AccentLightingHeader
Did you know...
One thousand square feet of bluegrass lawn generates about 200 pounds of clippings annually; 75 percent or 150 pounds of this is water. Clippings break down quickly and encourage beneficial microorganisms and earthworms. Nutrients in the clippings are recycled into the lawn, promoting steady grass growth. Clippings left on the lawn means no bagging and hauling, saving both human and fuel energy.

Managing Mosquitos

You have taken all of the mosquito-ridding precautions you can think of...you have removed all of those things that hold water (like watering containers, the little pools that form on tarp covers and trash can lids). You have even stocked larvae eating fish in your water feature that we installed last year. Yet you still spend your evening spraying and swatting the pest. Have no fear, TPS can help. Call us to schedule your Secure Choice Mosquito Assurance Program today. This service consists of a mist spray of two types of products for your lawn and landscape, which should be applied about every 6 weeks for best results. A special backpack power blower is used to apply a fine mist of products to your shrubs, trees, lawn, and around the perimeter of your home, especially in the back yard. This program provides great control of the pest allowing you to spend more time outdoors and less time worrying about the nuisance of mosquitos.

Annual Planting

There is no better way to brighten up your landscape than to introduce brilliant pops of color into your planting beds by installing annuals. Annual Planting is in full swing at TPS. Call today for an estimate to make your landscape the talk of the neighborhood. After all, isn't it time for the Jones' to keep up with you?

Those Pesky Grubs

Are you sure that those brown splotches on your lawn are the result of the dry weather or disease? In fact, they may be the result of grubs...the immature form of various beetles such as Japanese beetles and June bugs. In the spring through late fall, these grubs feed on grass roots, often causing patches of grass to turn brown and die. Even worse, birds, skunks, moles and raccoons may tear up your lawn for the chance of a meal of these plump critters. June through August is the perfect time to treat your lawn for grubs. Give us a call and we'll tell you about our process and give you an estimate for your lawn.
