November
2014
  


It's hard to believe it is November already.  Our season is winding down and there are a few services that happen in November.
  1. Fall clean-ups are typically  performed mid-November to mid-December.  Call or email us if you would like your gutters cleaned with your clean up.
  2. There should be at least one lawn mowing done in November.  The lawns are mowed shorter this month to help minimize winter debris and damage.  If there are a lot of leaves on the lawn there may be a nominal charge to process them.
  3. This is a great time for a final pruning on ornamental trees and shrubs.  This is the best time to shape them for next year.

A Quick Word on Grubs


 

A few seasons ago we made the decision to not include preventative grub control in our Nature Guard Organic Lawn Care program. The logic for this decision was based off of a couple of important factors. One factor being that we were only finding treatable grub thresholds on about 2%-3% of our lawns that we were caring for. This meant that we were treating and charging 97%-98% of our clients for something that they didn't need. Additionally this meant applying a pesticide needlessly on most of our lawns. Another factor that weighed in our decision was that the only real choice for preventative grub control a few years ago was a product called Imidacloprid. Imidacloprid is in a group of insecticides call neonicotinoids. These insecticides have come under much scrutiny for their potential link to Colony Collapse Disorder in honey bees and have been banned in Europe, Canada and some US states. This season grub populations exploded. We found treatable thresholds on roughly 30% of our lawns we care for. Because of the increased grub population this year and the availability of newer, safer and more environmentally friendly control products we will likely add a grub preventative option to the program next season.
