We know you have been putting off your gutter cleaning project. Your gutters are full of nasty debris and it’s not your favorite task to climb up on a ladder and pull out all that muck. Gutters serve an important purpose by keeping all the rain that pours down on your roof from gathering around your home and from running down the sides of your house possibly creating leaks.

If your gutters get clogged and end up full of debris, they cannot do their job properly. That is why it is important to hire professionals to get your gutters in good shape so they can get back to doing what they are meant to do: protecting your home from unnecessary water damage.

Benefits of Clean Gutters:

  • Longer Lasting Gutters.
    • If your gutters are full of debris, they can become more easily damaged under the stress and weight of the debris they are holding. Having them cleaned regularly means less cost fixing or replacing them.

 

  • Correct Flow of Water
    • With an unclogged gutter system water will be able to flow freely to the appropriate drainage areas.

If you are thinking of selling your home this is especially vital. A good drainage system adds increased value to your home. Buyers do not want to purchase a home knowing they will have to put in extra time, money, and effort to replace an unmaintained gutter system.

It is recommended do a gutters clean up at least twice a year. However, if you have more trees than average on your property that means more leaves and debris in your gutter system. In that case, you may need more than the recommended two gutters clean up per year. Properties with a high number of trees need cleaned out at least every 3-6 months to maintain clean, clear, and undamaged gutters. You can schedule a cleaning with us any time of year and we will be sure to take care of all your gutter cleaning needs.

Aeration: Why should you Aerate and When
 
In order to achieve and maintain a beautiful lawn, you should employ basic lawn care practices such as properly mowing, fertilizing and watering. It is also important to ensure that nutrients can reach the soil beneath your grass. Aeration can be an extremely vital element to a healthy lawn because it allows air and water to penetrate built-up grass or lawn thatch.
Get rid of thatch and make way for a beautiful lawn with this quick guide to aeration. You’ll learn why, how and when to aerate your lawn for the best results.
 
What is Aeration?
Aeration involves perforating the soil with small holes to allow air, water and nutrients to penetrate the grass roots. This helps the roots grow deeply and produce a stronger, more vigorous lawn.
The main reason for aerating is to alleviate soil compaction. Compacted soils have too many solid particles in a certain volume or space, which prevents proper circulation of air, water and nutrients within the soil. Excess lawn thatch or heavy organic debris buried under the grass surface can also starve the roots from these essential elements.
 
Should You Be Aerating Your Lawn?
One of the most common questions from homeowners is how to determine if they should be aerating their lawn. Your lawn is probably a good candidate for aeration if it:

 

  • Gets heavy use, such as serving as the neighborhood playground or racetrack. Children and pets running around the yard contribute to soil compaction.
  • Was established as part of a newly constructed home. Often, the topsoil of newly constructed lawns is stripped or buried, and the grass established on subsoil has been compacted by construction traffic.
  • Dries out easily and has a spongy feel. This might mean your lawn has an excessive thatch problem. Take a shovel and remove a slice of lawn about four inches deep. If the thatch layer is greater than one-half inch, aeration is recommended.
  • Was established by sod, and soil layering exists. Soil layering means that soil of finer texture, which comes with imported sod, is layered over the existing coarser soil. This layering disrupts drainage, as water is held in the finer-textured soil. This leads to compacted conditions and poor root development. Aerating breaks up the layering, allowing water to flow through the soil more easily and reach the roots.
  • It does not look good or healthy. If you are properly Fertilizing, and watering your Lawn and it is still not looking good green enough or good in general. It may be in needs of an aeration.

 

 
When to Aerate Your Lawn
The best time for aeration is during the growing season, when the grass can heal and fill in any open areas after soil plugs are removed. Ideally, aerate the lawn in spring and fall.
 
Aerating Tools: Plug Aerator vs. Spike Aerator
Two main aerating tools exist — a spike aerator and a plug aerator. With a spike aerator, you simply use the tool to poke holes into the ground with a solid tine, or fork. Plug aerators remove a core or plug of grass and soil from the lawn. For the best results, use an aerating tool or machine that actually removes plugs of soil. Poking holes is less effective and can actually cause additional compaction in the areas around the holes.
Best aerating tools or machines remove soil plugs approximately 2 — 3 inches deep and 0.5 — 0.75 inches in diameter, and about 2 — 3 inches apart.
 
Finally
 
Aeration is a beneficial practice toward achieving a beautiful lawn, but most people don’t realize it or understand the process. If your lawn is a candidate, make it an integral part of your lawn care regime. Your lawn will thank you for letting it breathe again. So, as soon as you are ready for us to Aerate your Lawn just give us a quick call to set up a quote and to schedule your aeration.

Do I need to use Mulch?

Keep your yard healthy and beautiful all at the same time just by simply adding mulch to your beds!

The proper amount of mulch is essential for the health and growth of the plants in its surrounding areas. How much mulch do I need? First you need to understand what would one yard cover. Once cubic yard will cover approximately 100 sq ft and measures, 3’x3’x3’.  A layer of 3 -4 inches of mulching in flower beds is just what you need, any more than that will reduce its effectiveness on your yard and can cause rotting around your plants.

Chinch Bugs- Act now before its too late!

Chinch Bugs love our hot Texas Summers. As the temperatures continue to rise and yards become drier, these Chinch Bugs can destroy a lawn in no time! that is why you need to check your yard often for Insect and/or diseases.

Know what signs to look for, if you notice yellowing in your grass on the edges near your driveway it’s only the beginning of an infestation. Chinch bugs will only move on to greener grass and begin to damage all areas of your lawn. They’re about the size of a flea and can be spotted on the edges of damaged areas. The Chinch Bugs flourish in hot and dry environments; therefore, it is important to properly water and fertilize your lawn.

Repairing a lawn from Chinch Bugs infestation can be a very timely process. Don’t wait to fertilize before it’s too late. Once the Chinch Bug infests an area, they kill the grass thus resulting in the yellow and brown spots throughout the yard. You can re-sod or wait for healthy grass to grow and cover the damaged areas. Although healthy green lawns are also in risk of being invaded by Chinch Bugs, the damaging process isn’t as quick as a malnourished lawn. You will have time to prevent the reproductive cycle by applying a liquid insecticide properly over a 21 day period in 7 day intervals.

Once the temperatures decrease again, these pests will no longer be an issue. However, we all know how long these hot Texas days last. Don’t let your yard get damaged by these pest, let us help you maintain a healthy lawn!

We can help you with fertilization and insects and disease control. Call Us NOW for a free estimate before it is too late and you loose your lawn against the Chinch Bugs.
