The temperature is dropping and winter is creeping in. Plants are going dormant and we are putting up patio furniture and covering up the grills. After we finish cleaning up all the fallen leaves, it feels like we can take a break from yard work until the spring. What you may not know is that the winter can be an excellent time of year to do some much needed pruning. But where to begin? There are lots of different practices/rules that landscapers follow when pruning, and we hope this post will help give you some insight when doing it yourself. (more…)
Fall is the time of year to begin shutting down irrigation systems for the winter. Below are some helpful tips to make sure your irrigation system is prepared for cold weather:
The backflow unit is the U-shaped piping that sticks up out of your yard and is the only piece of the irrigation system that is exposed to the elements, which makes is susceptible to freezing and cracking. A damaged backflow can be a costly repair so it is best to winterize it to remove all of the water out of the system.

Irrigating your lawn can be a hit or miss. It’s possible that you are not irrigating enough. Drought stress has many different effects on turf. As grass loses water, the leaf blade becomes less rigid and starts to wilt. If you are seeing certain areas in your turf turn a purple hue, water the area immediately, as this is usually a sign of wilting. A good way to test if your turf is wilted is to step on the area. If your shoes leave depressions in the turf after walking through the yard, it more than likely has drought stress and needs watering. If the grass goes a long period without water, it will go into dormancy and turn a yellowish color. The plant is still alive but the leaves dry up and die. (more…)
