Landscape Management released its 2016 LM150 list of the largest landscape companies ranked by 2015 revenue. Yard-Nique ranked No. 62 on the list, up from 74 in 2015.

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.
Yard-Nique’s President, Brian Dumont, had the opportunity to speak to future landscaping professionals at a North Carolina State University Landscape Construction class being taught by Mr. R. Lee Ivy.
Brian was able to pass on knowledge gleaned from his experience building Yard-Nique, and discussed topics such as developing and nurturing relationships with clients, acquiring bids, job estimation and work scheduling. Brian also used Yard-Nique’s Installation Division as a case study and detailed how it is setup to perform to Yard-Nique’s exacting standards.
This September, Lawn and Landscape Magazine published an article entitled “Acquisitions from the buyer’s perspective“. The article discusses two landscaping companies that have made mergers a part of their growth strategy. Yard-Nique is one of those companies.
Some of the ideas discussed in the article include how Yard-Nique finds new companies to acquire, how to get buy in at a new company from employees at all levels, and how to make the new venture successful.
