The best time to fertilize your lawn is in the spring, when it’s just getting out of winter dormancy and starting its growth cycle. This way you can provide nutrients for new leaf development as well root health! You should also consider applying a little something extra if possible – like anormals fertilizer with micro-nutrients that will help keep those greys blue all year round (even through heat waves!). You don’t need to be at home for our fertilization program! Our trained technicians will take care of your lawn and leave you with an invoice. Be sure check the backside after each visit, as notes on how best to maintain it are often written there- just like a doctor would note what they meant during their diagnosis (I know this sounds scary but trust me; everything’s going smoothly). We also ask that gates remain unlocked.

Some types of trees that grow well in Indiana are the American Hornbeam, Hackberry and Japanese Tree Lilac. Each of these species not only grows best in Indiana’s weather patterns and soil conditions, but they also give lawns a touch of beauty.

What are you waiting for? With so many different types of water features to choose from, your yard will be the showpiece of any home! Choose one or two that catch everyone’s eye and add them into an aesthetic landscape design. For example: fountains can make sounds like chirps while streams flow gently along their length; ponds create reflection in stillness except when fish jump out at predators lurking nearby .

You can stake your lawn to show snowplow operators where the road or sidewalk edge meets grass. You should also mark fire hydrants, retaining walls and other obstacles that are in their way during removal of winter storms by placing markers on these items so they know not only what you want them for but how high up off ground each one lies as well!

If you want to keep those pesky bugs away, we can help! Our trained technicians will apply a special blend of insecticides that targets both adults and their eggs. The Champagne Gold Misting System is convenient because it only takes about five minutes for us do all the work – no need to worry about getting off your couch or leaving home at 5 am in order hunt down pests on our own time (I know what I’d rather be doing).

A. II can tell you that the best days to have your property maintained are Tuesday and Thursdays. Why these particular days?

This is a basic guide for pruning. When you notice damaged or diseased shrubs and branches, remove them to prevent further harm from occurring in future seasons – most flowering plants require this type of maintenance after blooming but before next year’s buds set again! Prune whenever possible as it will help keep plant health high while also maintaining its natural shape.. We highly recommend manual labor over using shears because those cuts can take longer when done by hand instead with an expert eye looking out on each branch.

Pruning is one of the most important things you can do for your garden. Not only does it keep plants healthy and disease free, but pruned branches tend to last much longer than ones that have been cut with shears – so don’t forget about this essential step! When deciding how much room needs trimming each year (or when necessary) here are some guidelines: About half-way between winter frost date & planting season.

Our team will work with whatever is best suited for site conditions so contact us today about what’s right fit both budget-wise and plant health wise!.

Turf grass should be watered 3/4″ – 1″. Shrubs and trees will require more frequent watering, typically 1 -2 times per week for deep Maintenance Mode or 2-3 small bitty waterings per month if in pots on patio + garden beds (less often). Annual flowers may need 6 weeks between Watering CYCLE markings depending upon type; perennials generally only requirement monthly attention!
