One of our owners met with a manager from another large landscape maintenance companies. This company has over 400 employees serving the Bay Area. In an effort to force their cutomers to move to a more sustainable method of landscape care, the company chose to use organic fertilizer on all of the lawn areas. The trouble with organic fertilizer is the massive volume of material needed to supply the lawns with the needed nutrients. The company was not willing to pay the labor to do the second application and eded up shorting the plants of the needed 1 pound of Nitrogen per 1000 square feet. The end result was 80% of the lawn areas were yellow and thin.
Our danville yard hosted the Safety Bingo today. Cash and prizes were awarded to entrants who came through the last quarter with no injuries. Crews that went ‘above and beyond’ were also given additional opportunities to win. Carnitas off the grill were a nice way to end the day. Martin Cleary took the opportunity to make sure that the Danville Yard knows that we appreciate the guys efforts
White grubs are in the root zone of some lawns in the Fall. At this time the racoons come by to dig back the lawns to get at the White Grubs for a high protein meal. Pretty gross!
The Racoons will remember where they found the grubs and will return a year later in search of the same meal. In spring the grubs can damage the lawns by feeding on the turf roots, causing the lawn to look dry and unhealthy. The White Grubs can be treated with very specific chemicals. In fact, this chemical is Very similar to what we put on our cats and dogs to control fleas!
We just completed placing over 100,000 lights in a large Redwood tree for Diablo Foods in Lafayette. The accompanying photos were taken by Sally Rae Kimmel
I think that the deck has exceeded all of our expectations. Those lovely drawings did not begin to convey the real thing. You must (or at least should) be very proud.
This is very common question:
Oaks should be pruned in the dryer months to avoid exposing the open wood to fungus
Evergreens and conifers should be pruned in the colder months to reduce ‘bleeding’ and susceptibility to beetles.
Fruit tree should be pruned in early spring to let the right buds develop in the growing season.
For any questions, feel free to contact one of our Certified Arborists
