Plants To Help Repel Mosquitoes

We know that many of our customers are loving that the summer season is starting in a few short days. Even though it has been warm in Florida for some time, there is always something exciting about the official start of summer. One aspect of summer that we are not looking forward to is the onslaught of mosquitoes. There is nothing to like about mosquitoes. They make their presence known and leave you feeling itchy and uncomfortable when you are bitten. One way that you can help eliminate or reduce the number of mosquitoes is by adding certain plants to your yard.

Landscaping Tips Ideal For Florida Weather

Are you planning on doing some spring cleaning in your yard? Now is the perfect time to inspect your lawn and landscaping for any areas that need improvement. Perhaps you have suffered damage from a prior rainstorm and have postponed making the necessary changes. Maintaining outdoor landscaping can be challenging in our climate. We experience extremely high heat in the summer along with heavy rainfall and the possibility of a hurricane or heavy winds. It is important to have landscaping that is appealing while being able to withstand the elements.

Lawn Mowing Tips

Do you take great pride in your lawn? There are many factors that can contribute to a beautiful, lush, green lawn, such as weather, watering technique, fertilization, and lawn mowing practice. If you cut your own lawn, and you have been less than thrilled with the appearance recently, we are sorry to tell you, but you may be to blame.

Protecting Your Lawn And Landscaping From Frost

Many people choose to live in our area of Florida for the mild winters, although we still have our fair share of frigid days. While our daily temperature will never get anywhere close to single digits, we still have some days that reach close to or below freezing. Even though we have milder winters than other places across the country, we still have to prepare our lawns and outside landscaping for winter weather. We would hate for a frost to strike while you are unprepared and destroy areas of your property. We want to share some helpful tips to be sure that your lawn and landscaping stays protected this winter.

Should I Water My Lawn This Winter?

We live in an interesting climate where we don’t experience severe winter temperatures like other areas of the country do. Even though we don’t have frigid temperatures the entire winter, we still need to adjust the way we water and care for our lawns. The grass in our area typically grows more slowly from October to March. In fact, many lawns may begin to appear yellow and brown. Your grass is not dead if this happens. It has simply become dormant for the winter and will go back to the beautiful green shade come spring.

How to Save A Damaged Lawn

Even if you take excellent care of your lawn, it is always possible for it to become damaged. With the holiday season upon us, inflatables are on the rise, which are huge contributors to damaged lawns during this time of year. The size and weight of the inflatable doesn’t allow proper oxygen to reach the grass, not to mention that the stakes that are used to keep the object in place can also cause damage to the lawn. Additionally, fall and winter storms can cause serious damage to your lawn and lead to the need for repairs. Thankfully, it is possible to restore your lawn without needing to replace all of the grass on your property.

Protect Your Lawn This Holiday Season

We know that outdoor lawn decorations during the holidays are all the rage! Some people believe that the bigger and more decorations the better, but that is not always the case when it comes to the health of your lawn. Unfortunately, although outdoor holiday decorations are beautiful and adored by many, our lawns can’t always withstand the weight and lack of oxygen, easily becoming damaged. Follow these tips to ensure your lawn is healthy after the new year.

Preparing Your Lawn And Property For Winter

You are probably ready to see the end of fall and the end of hurricane season. This year has been rather difficult for the state of Florida, and we are ready to move forward. While we have rather mild winters in our area, there are still certain precautions we need to take with our lawns, irrigation systems, and outdoor properties. Over the past few years, we have seen colder temperatures come on suddenly and then fluctuate, with warmer weather in between cold snaps. Preparing for the winter now will help to prevent serious damage from occurring should the temperatures suddenly drop.
