With longer days and scorching temperatures, summer irrigation plays a crucial part in your lawn’s wellbeing.
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…)
Yard-Nique’s CEO, Brian DuMont, was interviewed by Landscape Management about the year long executive management program that Yard-Nique managers underwent last year.
Brian tells Landscape Management that
We worked on our core values, our vision statement, our mission statement and engaging employees.
The management training program is a way for Yard-Nique, as we grow, to continue to offer excellent service to our customers and maintain a healthy and productive work environment for our employees.

The sun is out and summer is upon us. With warm temperatures come the creepy crawly insects. Bugs can directly harm your landscape. We want to bring your attention to a couple of these little critters to look out for in your landscape this summer.
One pest to look for this month is Japanese beetles. Around the beginning of June is when you will see this beetle coming out of the ground.
This insect flies around and loves to devour your beloved Crepe Myrtles, Roses, Plum trees, Japanese maples, Cherry trees, and red buds. They typically feed between the leaf veins, giving the foliage a skeletonized look. A good way to guard your plants is to kill the beetles in grub form before they emerge out of the soil. You can also kill them by spraying a contact pesticide or a systemic chemical that lingers within the plant. Typically you can find these pesticides at your home depot or local garden store.
On Saturday June 14th, after a few scheduling changes due to inclement weather, Yard-Nique hosted an Earth Day celebration for the residents of Carolina Preserve in Bradford Hall.
With help from the property management company, Landarc, we were able to provide a cookout with hamburgers and hotdogs for the people that attended the event. The event included presentations on Ornamentals and Turf Pests, provided by our very own Tony Gregory. Tony discussed common pests that we experience in the industry, how to recognize them in the landscape, and management practices that the homeowners can use.
Yard-Nique also conducted a Container Gardening Seminar in which our landscape designer, Bobby Jones, talked about planter design ideas, how to create a container garden, and answered questions from the homeowners. During the discussions a planter was put together that was raffled off to one of the attendees. The planter was delivered to her home and placed in a location of her liking. All the food and plant material for the event was provided by Yard-Nique.
