If you have not heard of Restart, their goals are to train, mentor, and provide possible job placement for students who have battled with personal challenges.

We could not continue to do what we love doing without the support of the IREM memberships. We have a very loyal client base that has come from our involvement in IREM and Restart. Our Restart clients are a tremendously loyal group of managers.

We are glad to be a part of IREM and cannot wait to present them with another donation Next Year!

We have decided to not have our Annual Charity Golf Tournament this Summer due to it being our busiest time of the year. As many of you know, tournaments take a lot of time and work . We would like to be able to give more of our time to provide you with a great tournament. This is why we believe the Spring time will be a more appropriate time for us to hold ours. Please keep an eye out for a save the date this upcoming Fall!

The Drought Is Attracting Bark Beetle!

Due to the drought, we've had to reduce the amount of water used to water plants, grass, and trees which can cause trees to become stressed.These dry trees are now perfect hosts for bark beetle to feed on.

Bark Beetles are small insects that bore into a tree and make tunnels in the tissue under the bark. They lay their eggs within these tunnels, where the larvae feed on the tree tissue, until they mature and start the cycle again.

Bark beetles are attracted to stressed trees because they know the tree is too weak to protect itself. Trees become stressed when their environment is drastically changed , for example, over pruning or under watering.


Bark Beetle are actively searching for a pine species to attack from late spring to early fall.

How Can You Tell If Your Pine Tree Has Been Infected?

  • Visible holes in the bark were the beetle have been tunneling. 
  • Bark dust at base of the trunk.
  • Needles of the infested pine will begin to turn yellow or red
What should you do once you know a tree is infected?
  • Call a certified arborist and they will advise you if the tree can be treated or if it will need to be removed.
How to prevent infection?
  • Keep trees healthy by providing a steady supply of soil moisture.
  • Trees should be irrigated every 2-4 weeks.
  • Apply a layer of ground bark, wood chips, or other mulch around trees to conserve moisture. 
Landscaping Tips

POP Of Color: 
If you are looking to spice up your landscape for special events such as weddings and family gatherings, make sure to allow 6-8 weeks for annuals and perennials
to mature from a 4"pot.

Great flower options for this time of the year are heat loving flowers such as ageratum, asters, celosia, gazania, and marigolds.

Pesky Pest Control:
Caterpillars are beginning to appear at this time of the year. We suggest a nontoxic insecticide to keep them under control. 

Tomato Hornworms are hard to differentiate from the plant canopy due to their light green coloring.  When trying to locate these elusive pests, sprinkle the  plant with water and watch for movement as they
 shake the water off themselves. 
The Tomato Hornworm and the damage it does to tomato plants. 

Ants can be a sign that there is a pest lurking in your plants.  If ants are on a plant, it most likely means that they are farming the pest attacking it. Ants will also move the pest to another shrub, so look at all plants in the area.

Flowers don't worry about how they're going to bloom. They just open up and turn toward the light and that makes them beautiful. ~Jim Carrey
