When is the best time of year for a landscape installation?

It is generally agreed that fall and spring are the best seasons to plant. These allow for the best opportunities for maximum growth for newly planted seeds and bulbs. Summer and winter months are not ideal for landscape installation, but lawns still need regular watering during these months to ensure proper growth.

How often should I cut my grass?

Mowing a lawn approximately once a week will keep it short, clean, and beautiful.

How can I get rid of crabgrass?

Applying a pre-emergent in spring will help prevent crabgrass from germinating and taking over your lawn in the following seasons.

How much should I water my trees?

There is an easy formula to follow : 10gallons/inch/week. Adult trees require ten gallons of water, per inch in diameter, per week. Remember to water trees even in winter, as colder weather can cause trees to quickly dry out and die. Water younger trees especially often.
