Quick Steps For Caring For Your Bermuda Lawn

April 28, 2009

My Bermuda lawn is turning green now what should I do?

First make sure you have inspected your mower. Did you check/change the oil and spark plug?  How is that air filter from last year? Do the tires need air? Did you empty out that old gas? Do you have sharp the blades? Get these questions answered before you proceed.

Set that mower deck height to cut at 1/2 inch to 1 1/2 inches tall.

In April and early May, your Bermuda will start to come out of its dormant state. When it is about 50% green, apply a slow-release, high nitrogen fertilizer.  Follow the instructions on the bag or give us a call for professional service.

Mark your calendar – You should apply fertilizer to Bermuda two to three times during the growing season.

A second application should be applied in about six to eight weeks later or as directed on the bag.

The third application in another six weeks may be desired.

If you have weeds apply a lawn weed killer in June to control growing weeds.

Your Own Landscaping Idea

January 12, 2009

It is not always easy to come up with your own landscaping idea. But thankfully there are many places where you can get some fantastic landscaping ideas including books, magazines, the Internet and the other houses in your community.

Before you begin searching, however, it’s a good idea to know your yard. Learn how rainwater drains and check out the slopes and levels of your property. The more you notice the easier things will be. It would be terrible to choose a landscaping idea and then start work only to find that it cannot be completed halfway through due to some aspect of your property.

If you know that you want to change the landscaping in your front yard and your back yard then you need to use a landscaping idea that will incorporate both of these. Your front and back yards should flow together, this will give you the best possible design so look at a landscaping idea that will give you this kind of harmony and you will have a better yard for it.

The best place to find landscaping ideas and solutions is usually the Internet. Scattered among the millions of sites across the World Wide Web, you will find hundreds of websites that will have great landscaping ideas you can make your own. Unless you already have a few favorite landscaping sites bookmarked, a search engine such as Ask, Google or Yahoo! is the best place to start.

Popular landscaping magazines can also offer great advice and generate many landscaping ideas. The best ideas will come from regional magazines. These will offer a best match for your climate, soil conditions and general regional style.

And before you choose the final landscaping idea that you are going to use take a little extra time to learn the basics of landscaping. This is imperative if you have never done any work like this before. If you’re new to the whole world of landscaping then you might want to check out a book or two from the library. This way you do not have to pay for them but you will still get all that they have to offer. There is a lot of be gained from reading some good landscaping books — you might even find a landscaping idea in them.

Finally, take a stroll around your own community and stray from your usual path. You may be surprised to find that some of your undiscovered neighbors have yards with great curb appeal.

Landscaping ideas and inspiration can come from anywhere. So, once you know your own yard, the most important thing is just to pay attention and look around. Now Online
