will be starting Irrigation Winterizing on Tuesday, October 11th right
after the Thanksgiving long weekend. Our team will be starting in
Gallagher's Canyon on the South Side followed by the North Side which
should take until approximately the 18th. After that, we will be moving
on to the Mission area which should take another week where we hope to
have it wrapped up by October 25th.
We are aware that there is a massive crabgrass issue out there. Crabgrass
is an annual weed, meaning that the plant dies off every winter but
leaves seeds that enjoy germinating and infesting your lawn. It is not
only on the lawns that we take care of and it is NOT
transferred from lawn to lawn via a lawnmower. As of about 5 years ago,
due to federal pesticide regulations, there are no longer any
pre-emergent control methods available in Canada other then a natural
solution, Corn Gluten, applied in the granular form first thing in the
Spring. We have had mixed results with this method. Another method of
control is a product called Acclaim, and this product is used as a
post-emergent. The application timing is critical but from what we have
heard, it is an effective control method and needs to be applied by a
licensed company with an IPM certificate holder - this is where Creative
Roots can help. Both services are not cheap but ABSOLUTELY
necessary and will be offered to you when we are setting you up for the
2012 season. The crabgrass is wrecking the lawns out there and we need
to wage a war on it!!
one of those years again when the Voles are wreaking havoc on the
plants. Many of you have also seen the damage they do to your lawn once
the snow melts in the spring and although they could be considered
cute, we HIGHLY recommend taking action against them. We have purchased Vole Stations
and bait for anyone who wants them at a cost of $8 per station and
these would be placed in strategic locations around your property -
typically every 12 feet along the base of the house and rock walls.
