Holiday traditions light up your fall and winter

The shorter days and chill in the air signal that the holiday season, with varied holiday traditions, is right around the corner. Here at Paradise Lawns, we are transitioning from organic lawn care to exterior holiday lighting. It’s a nice time to pause and  think about how each holiday is unique, just like our customers.

It's not too late for fall aeration

Prepare for spring with fall aeration, dormant grass seed planting and topdressing with compost

We recently talked about the importance of yearly aeration, overseeding and topdressing with compost. Ideally, overseeding treatments should be completed by the middle of September. This allows for seed germination and establishment. Although there will most likely be a return to warmer temperatures, we are in a transition period with cooler overnight temps and lower daytime temps. With surrounding states already receiving snowfall and freezing temperatures, it won’t be long before we will be moving towards winter conditions ourselves. What does this mean for your lawn? If you haven’t scheduled your fall maintenance program with us yet, you should do so sooner rather than later.

Fall Aeration: a breath of fresh air for your lawn

Your lawn is a living, breathing part of our planet

When life gets busy, it can be easy to forget that your lawn is a living, breathing part of our planet. “Many organisms inhabit soil: bacteria, fungi, algae, invertebrates (insects, nematodes, slugs, earthworms) and vertebrates (moles, mice, gophers).“ There is an entire world below your feet. Don’t let compacted soil choke your lawn this fall. Help it breathe with aeration

It is a sign that our hard work is paying off and that the troublesome weeds in your yard are dying.

With the approach of fall to the Omaha area, let’s look at summer’s negative impact on your lawn.

What you do now, this fall, will determine how healthy and lush your lawn will be next year.

Paradise Lawns recommends a combination of Aeration, Overseeding and Topdressing with Compost every fall to address many common issues brought on by summer abuse. Let’s look at some distress signs and what you can do to ensure your yard is at its best next spring.

Summer Swarm

You are enjoying a nice summer evening outside with family and friends. Suddenly, you are overcome with swarms of flying gnats. What you have encountered is called a male mating “cloud.” Basically, this is when male gnats fly in a cluster around dusk each night looking for love. Clearly you are not a female gnat, so why bother you? They are attracted to your body temperature, odor and sweat. Also, they tend to fly towards your eyes and mouth because they are drawn to the moisture. They ruin your fun, but placing bug zappers around your yard won’t help, since gnats are not attracted to light. read more →
