It’s time for the holidays, which means many of us are still running around doing our last minute shopping even though we swore we’d get it done early this year. Unfortunately, some of us have those people that are impossible to buy for. But guess what, you’re in luck. We know the perfect gift for that person who has everything.
What if I told you I know the perfect gift for an elderly person, someone with not enough time on their hands, someone with too much time on their hands or anyone in between?
Are you listening? (Or reading?)
The gift of full-service lawn care.
Think about it. What other gift is going to be used and enjoyed as much as that? You’re giving them:
This is the part where I’m supposed to tell you where to get this wonderful gift. Environmental Turf Management is where. And we don’t only do lawns. Check out these other great services we offer.
Trees are arguably the most important feature of anyone’s yard. They provide shade on those hot summer days, privacy from those nosey neighbors, and they grow to become a defining symbol of our yard for generations. So it makes a lot of sense to take extra good care of them.
Here are just a few services Environmental Turf Management provides.
We know insects live and feed on our trees, that’s natural, but they can only stand so much. Certain insects like to overwinter on your trees where they lay eggs in the spring. A healthy infestation could really damage a tree’s appearance and lead to other issues later on.
That’s why it’s important to apply dormant oils to your trees in the fall or early spring.
Dormant oil is a thick viscous liquid that is sprayed on the barks of trees in the fall or in the early spring to kill all insects and eggs residing there.
At Environmental Turf Management we will apply dormant oil in the spring and in the fall to make sure all bugs are eliminated.
Many of us know what it’s like to be bitten by a fire ant, probably from when we were kids running around barefoot in the backyard. The unforgettable and lingering burn may make you think twice about ever walking outside barefoot again.
Not only do they hurt you but they also damage your plants. As the colony grows, it’s tunnel system expands and as it expands the hungry ants feed on the roots of your grass and vegetables.
The bigger the colony the more dangerous it becomes. Imagine your grandchild playing in the backyard and stumbling onto a fire ant mound. Not good.
If you suspect you have fire ants on your property it’s very important you get it checked out by a professional before they get out of control.
The experienced pros as Environmental Turf Management know how to evict these pests from your yard permanently. Check out our fire ant program for more info.
Aeration and Overseeding
Years of wear, tear, and play can take its toll on a yard. Sometimes the soil gets so compacted that water can’t soak in and roots can’t grow. Proper aeration is a vital step in any lawn care schedule:
Aeration is a very time consuming and costly task that involves renting or buying an aeration machine.
Let Environmental Turf Management do the work for you. They will aerate your yard twice a year and end with overseeding to make sure your grass returns in the spring looking thicker and greener.
We all know what moles can do to a beautifully manicured lawn. They can undo in seconds what took you all year to achieve.
Their unsightly mounds of dirt are offensive to look at and pretty embarrassing if everyone can see them. They also spell trouble for your lawn mower if you aren’t careful. Running over a molehill can dull the blade pretty quick, not to mention the small to medium-sized rocks in the dirt can be turned into dangerous projectiles.
You may be urged to go out and flatten those mounds down right away but it’s a pointless effort if the moles are still tunneling around your yard. You’ll wake up the next day and think your Bill Murray in “Groundhog’s Day” living the same moment over and over again.
So how do you get rid of these little pests?
Everyone and their mother knows a remedy to ward off moles ranging from human hair to walking out in your yard at night in your bathrobe and urinating in the tunnel. It’s true, look it up.
The lethal mole trap has been invented and re-invented about as many times as the mousetrap. These are usually in the form of a set of metal spikes that ram into the ground when the mole hits the trip plate.
But lethal traps are dangerous and only work some of the time. It’s hard to fight an enemy that you cannot see.
With ETM’s mole control program they first try to eliminate the mole’s main food source, grubs, which can also cause havoc to your yard. If this method does not work they have effective extermination methods to make sure you never see another mole again.
So don’t settle on some lame gift from the bargain bin that they’re just going to toss in a drawer and never use again. Make their lives easier by giving them the gift of year-round full-service lawn care. You’ve read about just some of the amazing programs offered by Environmental Turf Management.
