Now that summer is just about over, it’s time to start preparing your lawn for fall. Most lawns here in Maryland are made up of cool-season grasses. The thing about cool-season grasses is that fall is a very important time of year for them. Fall is when cool-season grasses have a burst of growth, especially root-growth. The grass is preparing itself for the frigid winter ahead. Early fall is the best time to help your lawn prepare for winter with fall lawn care services like aeration, seeding, and lawn composting.

When people think of dangerous animals, typically, their minds go to the great predators of the world. Lions, tigers, and bears (oh my!). Though these animals are dangerous in their own right, they’re not even close to being the most dangerous animals in the world. The scary thing is: some of the most dangerous animals in the world are tiny, unassuming, and live in your backyard. Mosquitoes, fleas, and ticks are some of the most dangerous pests in the world. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), there were over 600,000 cases of diseases spread by these tiny pests in the United States from 2004 – 2006. The good news is that, with a few outdoor pest control techniques, you can keep these pests out of your backyard, keeping you and your family safe.
It’s that time of year again, winter will soon be coming to an end and Spring will finally free us from Winter’s icy grasp. Winter can be a very stressful time on your trees and shrubs. The freezing temperatures, loads of snow, salt spray, and the moisture-leeching wind, just to name a few. One problem that we don’t think about in the winter, especially for our trees and shrubs, is insects. Your dormant trees and shrubs could be loaded with time bombs right now. Insects overwinter on and in the bark of trees and shrubs, waiting for the temperatures to rise so they can wake from their slumber. So, how can we stop this oncoming invasion? The answer is dormant oil.
