Grub control, honeybees, and your lawn

It’s amazing to think that so many factors go into maintaining a healthy lawn! One of these factors is ensuring your lawn is receiving appropriate grub control treatment. Grubs feast on the roots of grasses and plants, causing sections of grass to die. But you don’t want to use just any grub control product! You should know what your lawn care provider is using on your lawn in any case, but when you have kids and pets, you want to be especially aware of what is in these products. Be sure you know what products your lawn care provider is using, and what impact these products have on your lawn… and the environment. read more →

Crabgrass and Foxtail are “March madness” you don’t need all summer long!

It’s March, which means spring is just around the corner! Early spring is when annual weeds like crabgrass and foxtail start to rear their ugly heads. Unless you apply a pre-emergent, they will pop up and become eyesores in your lawn all summer long! read more →

We had a very successful holiday lighting season this year for a couple reasons. We have the BEST clients around town that allow us to create awesome holiday displays for them and everyone in their neighborhood to enjoy. Our installation team really put in a lot of effort and long hours to make sure everyone was taken care of on our list. We were also fortunate to add many new clients to our existing list of holiday lighting customers and add them to the Paradise Lawns family. Although we didn’t hit our goal of new holiday lighting clients, we came very close and are very happy with those who allowed us to light up their houses this year! It was a very fast and fun season for everyone involved, and the install team is ready for a little down time to relax with their own families…until Takedown time! read more →

led vs. incandescent lights

Will LED or Incandescent bulbs win this battle of holiday lighting?

When it comes to holiday lighting, you generally have two choices: LED (Light-Emitting Diode) bulbs and incandescent bulbs. Incandescent lights are the traditional electric light bulbs. They have wire filament that is heated to a high temperature, which then glows. LED lights, however, use a semiconductor to convert electricity into light—there is no heating to high temperatures with LED. Incandescent lights are still what most people think of when they think of holiday lighting, but LED is quickly gaining in popularity—and for good reason! read more →
