Winter Tree Care

Trees get the brunt of Michigan's harsh winter weather. Although they go dormant, they are not protected from the elements. To help young trees that have yet to grow a sufficient root system survive, here are a few things we can do to help.

Wrap: Wrap your trees with burlap or plastic tree guards to help keep pesky critters away and protect the trunk from thawing during the day and freezing at night which can create cracks in the trunk.

Mulch: Before the first freeze during late fall add about a 2" layer of mulch around your trees. This will help insulate the soil and help protect the tree roots against the harsh cold. 


Choose your salt wisely: If your newly planted tree is near a driveway or sidewalk and salt is necessary, be sure to use an ice melt that contains potassium, calcium or magnesium chloride. Basic rock salt (sodium chloride) prevents the roots capability of absorbing water, oxygen and nutrients.

The Monthly Pro-September
With fall around the corner and summer coming to an end, it is time to think about winterizing your irrigation system. Freezing temperatures are a major threat to your system and if not winterized properly can lead to costly repairs come spring.
 
When is the best time to winterize?
The ideal time is well before the first hard freeze! Mid-September through October is the best time in Michigan. Frozen temperatures can cause pipes, pumps, valves and other irrigation parts to burst.
What if my grass dies?
Grass actually does not die, it goes dormant! Though your grass may look dead, its alive. Once the temperatures start to rise again in the Spring, its color will began to change and start growing again. 
 
Tips for a healthy lawn during cold months:

Use a late fall fertilizer
- Late Fertilization helps lawn density while also stimulates color & growth 
Clean it up - Rake up leaves and debris as much as possible, especially before snow fall
Stay off frozen grass - Walking on grass that is frozen can break the grass blade and damage the turf. This may cause a slight delay in the grass bouncing back next spring

The Monthly Pro - August

With the peak of summer here you want your irrigation system to work smarter, not harder. Here are a few keys tips that will help your system be most efficient.
Less is More
Most people think that the more you water your lawn, the healthier and greener it will be. In fact this can cause adverse effects. Frequent watering leads to a shallow root system and fungus. Watering your lawn around every 3 days is ideal, it allows a strong deep root system to form making it more drought resistant. 
Timing is Key
Believe it or not there is a right and wrong time to water your grass! Early morning between 6-10 AM is optimal. Watering in the morning keeps your lawn cool throughout the day which relieves stress off your grass from the hot summer sun. Watering too late in the day can cause your lawn to stay wet overnight, which can be a breeding ground for fungus & disease.
Install a Smart
Irrigation Controller
A Smart Irrigation Controller in an investment that definitely pays for itself. Smart controllers helps save time, money and water. They gather local weather information and make adjustments appropriately so you can guarantee your lawn is getting the correct amount of water, at the most ideal times of the day. They also help diagnose any problems your system is having. You can monitor all of this from the convenience of your cellphone. Interested in a smart controller?

Most importantly stay cool and enjoy summer while it lasts!

The Monthly Pro - May

 
April Showers Bring May Flowers!
 There are various benefits to having a flower garden. Not only is it visually appealing and can add a pop of color to any landscape, it also holds many health benefits. Gardening has proven to be a sufficient form of exercise and helps increase flexibility. It also creates cleaner, healthier air and has shown to be a mood enhancer.
(Drip Irrigation System prior to being buried under mulch) 
Don't have enough time to water your garden every day, and worried it may not survive? Consider installing a drip irrigation system. A drip irrigation system sends water straight to where your plants need it, the roots. This type of system eliminates waste, discourages weed growth, and promotes healthy plants. Which in return will save you money, and help your garden grow to its full potential.

The Monthly Pro - April

Spring is here!

Don't already have an irrigation system? Here are some benefits:
 
Saves Time: Hand watering your lawn takes time away from your family and things you enjoy. Now you have more time to do thing you love, while your lawn gets what it needs to thrive.
Saves Water: Installing an irrigation system helps you conserve water, while helping maintain a healthy lawn. 
Saves Money: The benefits of an irrigation system outweigh the initial cost, you should see your water bill decrease and your system will end up paying for itself.
Start your spring off right with an Early Spring Fertilization Application that will help your lawn establish the strong roots it needs for the rest of the season! Hate those pesky summer weeds? It is important to get your first round of pre-emergent down before mid May to inhibit the growth of seedlings and ensure a thick, healthy lawn.
