Trees are a breath of fresh air in the middle of an overrun city. They are a place to relax with a great book in a park. They provide beauty, block out sound and create a sense of calm.
For most of the country, fall signals the end of the growing season and an end to gardening. For many, it’s a relief to be done with all the chores that go into gardening. But here in Georgia, we are blessed with mild weather most of the year which means our growing season is longer.
Moles may be the most destructive pest that can invade our yards. The damage they cause creates multiple problems and can ruin the overall look and structure of a lawn. The following are steps you can take to control current moles and prevent future problems.
From raking leaves to protecting your home from fall pests, fall is a season of chores. Some of those chores carry over from the summer. I’m talking about pulling weeds. Weeds can grow any time of the year here in the Peach State which means a year-round headache for you.
Weeds are every home and business owner’s worst nightmare. Here in the Loganville, Georgia area, weeds start growing early with our warmer temperatures and high humidity. By May, if we haven’t taken precautions, our lawns can be overrun with them.
Moles can cause a lot of damage in your yard. They can disturb roots, cause the grass to wilt and die, and pile large amounts of dirt on your grass which can suffocate it. To get moles the best option is to eliminate their food source.
Winters in Georgia aren’t that bad but it does mean that our gardens are done for the year. But here in the Peach State, most of our state lies in hardiness zone 8. Which means we have a longer growing season than our northern neighbors.
Here in the Atlanta area, we feel fall more than our southern neighbors. This is the time of the year when our gardens come to fruition and die off. All the wonderful colors of summer turn brown and wither away. It might be October but that doesn’t mean your gardening season is over.
Here in Georgia, we don’t just have to worry about dangerous pests in our yard. We also have dangerous plants. Poison Ivy and its cousin Poison Oak are both names that trigger fear in the hearts of homeowners.
