Now through the early parts of November are the best times to plant spring-blooming flower bulbs, such as tulips, daffodils, hyacinths, crocus, and more! These flowers are the first blooms that we see each spring and become a welcome sign to our gardens after a long and cold winter. These bulbs are really simple to plant and they will come back year after year; there is no maintenance or replanting needed.

Bulbs need several weeks in the ground to get their root systems growing before the ground freezes. However, you don’t want to plant them so early in the season that they have time to sprout. Sending up leaves will deplete some of the energy stored in the bulb, which it needs to get i...

Pantry moths can often be an alarming and disgusting find in our homes. As their names suggests, these are moths that feed on grains and for that reason tend to be found near our kitchens, pantries, or other food storage areas.

First, a little more info on pantry moths. Pantry moths are whitish, gray in color and the adult moths that are most noticeable to us are about 3/4 inch in length. They live a pretty quick life, going from eggs, to larvae, to adult in about 3 months. Adults live long enough to breed, but that is about it. Their complete lifecycle will not exceed about 4 months. It is the adults that breed and lay their eggs in or near a food source (such as flour, cereal, rice, and oth...

We have heard it from many customers... this summer was incredibly tough on our lawns. So many of us are now looking at brown patches in the lawn and wondering what to do next. Will this grass come back? When should I re-seed the bare spots?

Here is what we recommend this Fall when it comes to grass seeding:

Is my lawn really dead? Grass is meant to slow growth and will fade in color during periods of extreme conditions. As a result, you may notice at least some of your areas coming back to life now that we move into September with cooler days and more frequent rainfall. We typically recommend that you keep a close eye on the troubled areas of your lawn and if they look to be recovering on th...

This summer has been quite dry and just a couple weeks o of little rain can cause our lawns to loose color or die. Supplemental watering with the right sprinkler can help bridge the gap during times of extreme weather. Do you have the right sprinkler for the job?

What are these annoying flies that are populating my kitchen? Where are they coming from? How come they never seem to quit hanging around? These are questions that we are asked every year during the summer months. Here are some tips for diagnosing which pest you have and for treating them effectively.

Fungus Gnats – are tiny (1-2 mm) small flies that sort of “bounce” through the air. Their erratic behavior is annoying and makes them tough to catch. Fungus gnats have very little structure. Their bodies are thin and their wings make up most of their size. If you have live plants in a room they are noticed in, or an adjacent room, then you can pretty much figure that fungus gna...

temp-post-image

1) Frayed Grass - Shredded, brown tips to your grass may not seem like a big deal, but this exposes the grass blades to insects and disease more than a clean cut would do. Grass can also experience more moisture loss because of frayed edges as well, which is never a good thing during the summer time. The picture to the right shows a lawn just mowed by a dulling blade >

2) Dented or Nicked Blade - A mower blade with too many dents will need sharpened. Dents can happen because of small rocks or roots that are co...
