Lawn fertilizations and tree applications have started full swing and our irrigation department is starting to book up quickly. If you have not returned your annual property care proposal, now is the time to get it taken care of.  We want to make sure that you get the best possible care that we can give.  Our goal this season is to meet or exceed your expectations!  If you do not have a lawn program with us, please give us a call and we can get it set up for you.

TREES - Soil Quality  

Isn’t Mother Nature magnificent!
Our landscapes are coming back to life every day! It is crucial for you to take advantage of this springtime to ensure the best results for
hands holding soil
your yard’s health all summer long. Promoting soil quality should be part of your landscape care program. The benefits of improving soil quality include, but are not limited to, increased root density, improved drought resistance, vigorous growth, increased leaf density, flower retention, increased fruit production, and vibrant fall color.

In Colorado, our plants have to deal with extreme weather conditions, so it’s important to implement a program to improve the soil that supports our plants every day. Soil improvement programs should be tailored to each specific site. For example, a program for heavy clay soil with high salt levels should include amendments that focus on restructuring the soil and leaching salt. Some of the most common soil improvement products include epsom salt, gypsum, sulfur, chelated iron, blood meal, diatomaceous earth, compost tea, Revive products, humic acid, fulvic acid, Superthrive, compost, and mycorrhizae fungi.

LAWN
Lee Kral, our Lawn Department manager, has been out setting bait stations for voles and is troubled over the trend
BABY VOLES
that he is seeing.  Voles are at an all time high already this year, with spring being one of the peak breeding times.

The breeding season for voles encompasses most of the year, with peaks occurring in the spring and fall. Most voles have multiple families per year. Some voles have been shown to produce upwards of 10 litters of two to five young in one year. The normal is three to five litters a year.

LANDSCAPE
Water conservation may not be one of the hottest topics, especially when we have a winter where the mountains are well above average for snow pack or we have an exceptionally wet spring, but it should be. We live in a high alpine desert where water is certainly our most precious resource and conserving that resource is not all that difficult when it comes to your sprinkler system. There are some very simple things that you can do yourself to minimize the potential waste a sprinkler system may generate.

One of the easiest things to add to a sprinkler system is a rain/freeze sensor. This wireless device will 
freeze-sensorsinterrupt or delay a sprinkler program if enough natural precipitation is registered or if the weather turns and gets too cold to water. Another very simple thing you can do is monitor your lawn throughout the season and adjust the run times of each of your turf zones as the year progresses. Periodically checking the system for breaks, misadjusted heads or leaking valves will also make a significant difference in the amount of water wasted.
