June is the time to beware of those nasty insects (Chinch Bugs and other turf eating insects) that can cause thousands of dollars in damages to your lawn. Now that the hot weather is upon us, these damaging insects can take hold, nest and multiply in your precious lawn.
Chinch Bugs look like a small flea and are only about 1/8th of an inch long when fully grown. These insects lay eggs [...]
INSECT ALERT !!
Although Chinch Bugs start to spread in June, they may not come out until July. This is the time of year when you will begin to notice some damage in the way of brown spots.

Fall is the best time of the year to think about getting your lawn Aerated!!
The soil in your lawn gets compacted down more and more each year because of heavy foot traffic and lawn cutting. Ideally, you should turn over and cultivate the soil like you do with your gardens each year. Because the grass is on top of the soil we cannot get under to turn it over, so this is where Aerating solves [...]
Remove fallen leaves. Mulched leaves added to the garden in small amounts provide rich organics to next year's flowers and shrubs.
Cut your lawn short to make it easier to get the leaves and leave the last cut short as well to reduce trapping moisture and mold growth.
Aerate to loosen the soil.
Fertilizer with the right blend for your soils.
Edge garden beds and you're all set!
