Mites and Miticides! Know what to do!

        The recent HOT/DRY weather has promoted Mite activity on Evergreens, including Albertus Spruce, Colorado Spruce, Norway Spruce, Hemlocks, and Firs. Mite damage can often be seen when the needles start to look brown, or dusty in color. The solution: Spray before the population grows to minimize plant stress. We have had plenty of Mite activity in the Deciduous Trees and Shrubs this year, primarily Locusts, Amelanchiers, Crabs, Burning Bush, and Roses.

Landscape Lighting

Adding lights to your landscaping is a great idea to add a little color to your gardens. By simply putting landscaping lights in and around your house you can add security as well as I had talked of wonder, style, and beauty. An Eco friendly approach is to install solar lighting to your yard. Landscape lighting can brighten darker areas of your property and increase the safety of your home by making it easier to see steps and obstacles at night.

There are three main types of landscape lighting used. Accent lighting will cure all attention to a special feature such as a tree, sculpture or waterfall. Pathway lighting is lighting along or around paths on a property. They often cast an outward, downward glow. Mood lighting typically casts a soft warm glow to, often to talk or dine by. Common choices are the wall mounted, string or lantern varieties.

Soil Compacted? Get a free diagnosis!

Lawn Aeration needed for Compacted Soil in Birmingham MI Compacted soil creates an inhospitable environment for grass root development. While a layer of thatch is healthy for most yards, sometimes this layer becomes too dense for roots to develop properly. The effects of compaction include a decrease in drainage (permeability), water-holding capacity, and air movement within the soil. After extended periods of compaction, the conditions in poorly aerated soils can reduce mineral nutrient uptake which can impair the growth of tree and plant life. Professional companies use a “Core Aerator” to fix this issue. The core aeration removes plugs of soil, allowing more room for nutrient and gas exchange which can lead to a greener, healthier lawn. Not sure if you have compacted soil? Call us here at Total Lawn Care Inc. and we will send out one of our turf technicians to give you a free diagnosis!

Tips: Cut it high, and leave the clippings please!

Lawn Cutting 3" Height

        By keeping your grass height at 3″, the turf will create a natural barrier against weeds and other unwanted vegetation. When mowing a lawn, always remember: Taller blades of grass promotes longer root growth, and shades out weeds!

        Lawn Mowing clippings are a natural turf fertilizer. They are a wonderful source of Nitrogen (What is commonly found in almost all fertilizers!), and can reduce the need for additional fertilizer by up to 25%!

Fertilize with a Healthy Lawn Care Provider!

        When choosing the type of fertilizer you will be using, always choose “Earth Friendly”. Living in Michigan, we need to do everything we can to protect our waterways.

Landscape Care Program

        A great way to do this is by following SOCWA’s Healthy Lawn Care Program for Watershed Protection. The program consists of several guidelines designed to help protect our waterways, while still keeping the nice lush lawn we all desire. Some of the guidelines include avoiding “Weed-and-Feed” combination products that add many unnecessary chemicals to our landscape. These “Blanket” applications often effect insects and other vegetation beyond the intended target, and are wasted. Looking for a Lawn Fertilization Company?
