A small change in the way we do things at Mountain High
In a cost savings effort we will be making a small change this season at Mountain High.  Upon the completion of your Plant Health Care and Lawn Care services your technicians will be leaving not only the information regarding the day’s services, but also a completed invoice (when a balance is due) with a return envelope.  They will be left only at owner occupied, residential properties. If work is added or changed while we are on site, an invoice will not be left.  We value all of our clients and we are always looking for ways to provide our superior Plant Health Care and Lawn services at an affordable rate.

The 2010 growing season was one of the “buggiest” in the past several years.  Monitoring your plant material continues to be the key to maintaining a healthy landscape. 

Several factors created the right conditions for high insect populations last year including low rainfall amounts, a very mild spring, warm overnight temperatures, and 43 days over 90 degrees.  The number of 90-plus degree days in 2010 was six times more than 2009 and nearly double 2008.  Insect life cycles are driven by three basic factors: temperature, moisture, and the availability of food.  In 2010 the Denver Metro area provided all three, and the various insect populations exploded. 

It is unlikely that we will experience the same conditions in 2011, but in Colorado you never know what to expect.  Therefore, steps must be taken to stay ahead of problems before they can damage a landscape.  Closely monitoring pest populations allows for smaller and more reactive treatments.  This approach to Plant Health Care helps to reduce the overall amount of pesticides used, and prevents unnecessary impacts to beneficial insect populations.  Records of insect populations, species, and changes in plant condition aid in determining when treatments are most effective and beneficial.  Maintaining records over a period of several years also helps to show trends in insect populations on a larger scale.  It is with this information that we can more effectively care for our landscapes in an environmentally responsible way.

With March beginning we will soon see the first signs of spring, and inevitably some reminders of winter.  Make sure your lawn comes through ready to embrace another Colorado summer.

The extremes of March in Colorado isn’t just tough on us, it’s also a killer to turf areas around our homes.  As the days get longer and warmer the turf will begin to become active.  This new growth would be a blessing if heavy storms and unexpected freezes weren’t around any corner.  Physical damage to newly emerging tissue creates pathways for various fungal agents to spread infection.  In addition to the disease agents causing damage we often have to worry about repairing damage that was caused from winter mite feeding in the more exposed and sunny areas of turf. 

Combating the elements of nature is not easy, but it is possible.  As difficult as it may be it is vital to get out and water turf areas whenever unseasonably warm temperatures create drying soil conditions.  We cannot rely on spring rain or late snowfalls to keep soils moist.  Without efforts to respond to the March weather conditions you could spend your money and time repairing turf areas this summer.  When it comes to your lawn, the old saying “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”, could not be more true.

I can’t tell you how many of our customers don’t know that Mountain High has a landscape and sprinkler division. 

I show them pictures of some of the beautiful renovations, outdoor living spaces, custom patios, fire pits, and water features and of course the gardens we have created and I get the same reaction. Wow! I had no idea you did this! It is the same reaction with our sprinkler division. Our landscape and sprinkler divisions provide the same high quality service you have come to know and expect from our tree, lawn and plant health care divisions. Right now is the perfect time to start making plans for your property and visit with our landscape design team. Please visit the landscaping page on our website to view some of the projects we have had the privilege of creating and see how we’ve grown. We look forward to visiting with you and helping you with all of your outdoor needs.
