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 →

But she’s not alone! read more →
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 →
