It’s time to think spring. Sure, warm weather is still a few months
away for most of the country, but for irrigation professionals now is
the time to plan for a smooth, successful spring start-up season.
Weed and Pest Control
Spring is here, at least in some parts
of the country. Soon little green
things will be sprouting up all over.
As usual, the sprouts will include
not only the plants we want but
some of the others, too . . . the
good, the bad, and the ugly. For
landscape contractors this means
finding ways to protect the good
while getting rid of the bad and the
ugly. In other words, weeds.
Once upon a time, landscape professionals just took care of landscapes. Issues with water were left to others. Then, as time went on, we expanded our range of services to include hardscapes, outdoor lighting, pond construction and installation, and most of all, irrigation. After all, without the targeted application of water to grass and plant life, nothing is going to grow.
One of the hallmarks of a quality landscape
installation is that it looks fabulous when you first put it in and
only gets better with time. The neat and tidy beds of a brand new
landscape almost always look great, even when plants are relatively
undersized. Then, as plants start growing to their optimal size, the
view just keeps getting better. With a great installation, the
landscape continues to look picture-postcard beautiful for years.
