PREPARING FOR FALL
With the arrival of September, cool nights and shorter days begin the transition of late summer to early fall. Evergreens, such as Pines and Cedars, will soon be dropping older needles, but not to worry for this occurs every year. September is a great time to overseed or install new lawns. Aerifying and fertilizing will work wonders in revitalizing an old, tired, dry lawn. If you only fertilized once a year, the fall application is the most important. Slug season is back. The lack of rain and the heavy dew in the morning bring the slugs out to feast. Slugs lay lots of eggs in the fall. Controlling slugs now during this breeding season will result in fewer next year.
Spiders are now out spinning their webs everywhere and fall is the time to get them, too.  We offer free estimates for any of these applications.
