We wanted a good place to share great projects and some of our expertise with our clients and the world at large, so when we put this new site together, it was important to us to include an awesome blog.
I hope you’ll take a moment to check out some of our posts. We can always be reached through the contact info at the bottom of the page, feel free to give us a call with any questions.
In order to meet Clean Water Services’ stormwater facility guidelines, we planted native trees and shrubs and brought this new development up to specification. This included over 26,000 plugs, or small native grasses, planted 5 inches apart. This helps keep water on-site– native plants help treat the soil and process contaminants, preventing run-off from developments from heavily impacting the water system. Jute netting we laid down helps with erosion control. For more information on storm water facilities, check out Clean Water Services’ page on it.
Though the crane fly, AKA “mosquito hawk,” doesn’t actually eat mosquitos, their larvae, often called “leatherjackets,” are ravenous for your grass! This time of the year, the larvae seek out a safe home with good food, and can destroy your lawn as they chow down on its roots.
Spring is in full swing, and your garden is likely to be enjoying the sunshine. A few things to keep in mind during the heat wave; your new potted plants will suffer the most in this type of weather. If your pots are mostly in direct sunlight, you will want to water twice a day.
