protect lawn from salt damage

It’s winter in Nebraska, and we see frequent snow and ice this time of year. We’re relieved when we see the snow plows out preparing the roads before a big storm, but have you ever stopped to wonder what the salt does to your lawn? 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 →

Fall is Lawn Renovation Time! Repair and Renovate Your Lawn from Summer Damage

One of our clients called the other day and asked if all this extreme heat and torrential rain should make her worry about her lawn. I asked if she had adjusted her sprinkler timers to compensate for each of these extreme conditions–this is when she realized she hadn’t done so.

But she’s not alone! read more →

Questioning Lawn Aeration?

Questioning lawn aeration?

Last fall, a curious five-year old watched with great interest as we walked our machines through his parents’ lawn. When we were finished, he asked me why we put so many holes in the ground. Why do we aerate a lawn in the fall?

It’s a good question.

The little holes we drill with our aerators allow food and water to reach grass roots. And those little holes also provide extra space for roots to spread and grow. After aeration, natural nutrients and water can more easily reach grass roots. read more →
