Irrigation System Winterization
It’s time to make sure your irrigation system winterizing is scheduled. Call our office at: 508-495-1181 to schedule.
Fall landscaping clean ups starts mid November.
If you are planning holiday festivities and would like to make sure your property is cleaned of leaves and debris, call the office at 508-495-1181 to schedule a date.
Gutters should be cleaned prior to winter. Build up of leaves and debris in your gutters can cause standing rain water which will freeze, and can lead to an ice dam which allows water to back up into the house at the gutter line. The gutters can be cleaned at the same time of the fall clean-up.
Protection for all evergreens and other shrubs that hold their leaves year round is an application of trans film. Trans Film applications cover the shrubbery, can not be seen and protects the plants from winter damage. Deep root feeding for shrubs is done this time of year, as well as tree spraying to eradicate the caterpillar eggs that will lead to winter moth.
Lawn Core Aeration for September…
We are currently scheduling lawn core aeration for the the month of September. This is one of the better months to try to tune up your lawn. Due to shorter days coming and cooler nights, the lawns should come back from dormancy. Aeration is done at this time to help your lawn stimulate growth and with added slice seeding to fill bare spots and thicken lawn.
Fall is a great time for planting. The Spring and Summer colors have come and gone, so lets add some new plantings that bloom in the Fall. We like to call it rolling color throughout the season.
Fall is good time for final pruning. Call us to schedule a maintenance crew to come by, shape up the shrubs and up limb any ornamental trees. At the same time the crews could be weeding the flower and landscape beds too.
Irrigation turn off and winterization…
Now that the temperatures are reasonable, it is time to think about scheduling an appointment for your irrigation turn off and winterization. Keep in mind the system should run into the Fall, as the Cape Cod environment is still very dry with drought conditions.
It is very important your irrigation system is winterized properly. All water needs to be removed and back flows drained of water. Any water left in the system will freeze, creating ice, which will expand and crack whatever irrigation parts still have water in lines or heads. If this occurs, all parts will need to be replaced at additional costs in the Spring.
Spring is here early this year. The crews are out earlier this season starting the Spring property clean ups. Your lawn and landscapes will start greening up and blooming earlier this season.
The mow crews will be starting weeks earlier this season too with more than 28 mow weeks. Take a look at your property then contact us for anything you need to enhance your landscape and outdoor living spaces.
Any questions about our landscaping and property services, call the office at 508-495-1181, or email firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule your free estimate or property overview with Emir, Sean, or Chris.
The end of the Fall season is approaching. One of the final steps for the year, is the final property clean-up. The crews will remove all leaves and debris from the lawn areas and landscape beds, as well as any necessary late season pruning. All perennials and annuals will be cut back or removed. Please keep in mind, if leaves are not removed from the lawn area, this will increase the chance of snow mold and will limit oxygen and sunlight exposure to the lawn.
Due to the long winter last season and large amount of snow accumulated on lawn areas, we are offering a fall fungicide application that will help prevent or at least control snow mold again this season. Please call to have Don come by and give you an estimate.
Lastly, if you choose to clean your own leaves, we can send a crew out to remove the pile of leaves. The leaves need to be left near the road so the truck and leaf vac can park near the pile. Please call Sean for scheduling and pricing.
In our News:
We were honored to be asked to volunteer our bark blower and one of our operators to the Cape Cod Upper Cape Horticulture program. The focus was to introduce the students to some new machinery. The operator himself graduated from this very program five years ago. Greener Image proudly has three students currently doing their co-op with us now.
