Keep Your Shrubs Looking Beautiful All Season Long!

Shrub trimming should be done twice per season on average after the first round of growth in June/July and late in the season when the shrub is done growing for the season usually around September or October.

Shrub trimming has a number of positive effects for the shrubs 1) by removing dead leaves and branches you make room for new growth. 2) You are able to maintain the desired height and width, or shape if you so desire,  by staying on a regular maintenance schedule with your bushes. This also helps to keep shrubs/trees from growing into the side or roof of your home/garage before it’s too late. With the recent storms we have experienced many homes were damaged unnecessarily by dead limbs.

Keeping your bushes trimmed can help on both sides of the fence when comes to security, it can be used to create a nice privacy barrier for your backyard with a nice arborvitae hedge.  Pruning/trimming can also be used to your advantage to keep views from your windows unobstructed and give you clear line of sight to all areas of your property.

Sprinkler Winterization and Blowout: What we do!

Winterize your Sprinkler SystemCrack in Backflow Device from Freezing        With the cold weather approaching, it’s time to think about preparing your Sprinkler System for winter. At Total Lawn Care we offer complete sprinkler system maintenance and winterization services. From a broken sprinkler ran over by a vehicle to a break in your sprinkler line, we can fix it!

        It is important to Winterize your Sprinkler System to avoid costly damages done by water expansion during the cold months. When systems are not properly drained, the most common damage is a split copper or ball valve on the back flow preventer. This repair is costly due to the time it takes to replace the copper parts and re-attach them. Poly Pipe that is not winterized will become brittle from the cold and when the water expands it breaks easily. Sprinkler heads with water left in them will also break when the water witin them freezes and expands inside.

        At Total Lawn Care we treat every system with the time necessary to perform a thorough winterization. After the initial hook up with our air compressor, we blow out every zone twice untill only a fine mist of water is evident. Upon the second run through of the system, we will catch any trapped water left in the system. Upon completing the removal of 99% of the water, we will double check the water shut off valve to make sure there is no leakage of the shut off valve.

Pink and Grey Snow Mold Patches

Snow Mold Treatment and FungicidesSnow Mold Fungus is unfortunately a very common occurrence here in Michigan. Often times Snow Mold shows up as either a grey or pink patch in the area where large amounts of snow has melted. Edges of driveways and street curbs are the most common places Snow Mold shows up. Snow Mold is not always easy to diagnose. Some of the tell-tale signs are white areas of turf in which grass blades are dead, bleached, and clumped together. Even though the sight of Snow Mold is a cause for concern, it rarely causes permanent damage. Gray Snow Mold typically damages just the blades of grass, and can generally be combated by a light raking of the area and a spring application of fertilizer. Pink Snow Mold, on the other hand, can invade the roots and crowns of turf and cause more extensive damage to the grass.

Although Snow Mold is a fungi, fungicide applications are generally not recommended for residential lawns except in extreme cases. Spring Fertilizers generally have a concentration of salt, which is healthy for soil and helps remove the fungus. This is the most often used form of treatment, and least chemical intensive.

If you think you may have Snow Mold damage to your lawn, please call us to have one of our Turf Specialists visit your property to diagnose your lawn. Call us at 248-588-1694 info@totallawncareinc.com, or Click Here to use our Online Request to schedule an appointment for a free!

Landscape Design

 

Landscape is to a house what a picture frame is to a good painting. It is perfect for bringing out the best features of your property while hiding the rough edges. A house that doesn’t have good landscape design can look naked and as if it doesn’t belong. Another great thing about a designed landscape is the increased curb appeal – the International Society of Arboriculture has said that a landscaped house can be worth up to eighteen percent higher than its non landscaped neighbour.

The increased liveability of a house that has a landscape design is amazing – creating an outdoor living space can give you the extra room you and your family need. Not only does it look good but landscaping can provide a great deal of personal satisfaction, its when all the elements come together in a visually appealing way that you know for sure that you have achieved successful landscape design.
