New Landscape Makes a Yard Feel New Again
One of the decisions you need to make when cutting your grass is what to do with the grass clippings. You can bag the clippings and dispose of them properly, or you can mulch your grass clippings instead. Here is what you need to know about each of these options.
Bagging your grass clippings is a good idea if you have very long grass that has not been cut in a long time.
As the weather changes from warm to cool and then freezing, you watch as your yard's landscaping changes sometimes overnight with a hard freeze and falling tree leaves. Mulching in your yard with the materials you already have access to and others you can purchase from a landscape supplier can protect your yard from winter's harsh climate and put it into a better situation for the spring thaw. Here are some recommendations to help you keep your yard and soil healthy for winter with fall mulching practices.
When you've moved to a property with fruit trees present, it becomes so important to focus on tree care to keep them alive for a long time. If you're worried that the trees are difficult to manage, you'll need to see how an arborist can help to keep the trees producing fruit.
Since there could be some concerns over how healthy your trees are and their ability to produce fruit well into the future, you'll need to see how you can work with an arborist to keep up with maintenance.
Do you have a part of your property that is overgrown with tall weeds, small bushes, and even some young trees? You might look at this land and worry that you'll never be able to clear it. And the good news is you don't have to. At least, you don't have to clear it yourself. There are companies that offer a service called brush mulching, and you can hire one of them to clear the land for you.
Crabgrass is an ugly annual weed that can take over your lawn in the warm summer months. Controlling this weed may require the use of several tactics.
1. Pre-emergent Herbicides
Apply pre-emergent herbicides in early spring before you see the young leaves of the crabgrass emerge. Timing is the key to effectively destroying crabgrass in this manner. The herbicide needs to be put down after crabgrass seeds begin to germinate but before the foliage grows in.
Hi. My name is Martha. My husband Leo and I are empty nesters. The last of our three kids moved out of the home about eight years ago. Since that time, we have talked a great deal about retirement and what we wanted to do with our house. The house is slightly too large for just the two of us, but we already have two grandchildren and from the way our kids talk, we are in for plenty more. We have decided to stay in our home since it has plenty of room for our family to come and stay with us from time to time. The one thing we really wanted to change is the backyard. Leo retired last year, and I’ll be retiring in about six months. We are already talking with the landscape contractor, and I’m excited to share some of our plans with you!
