Happy Holidays! As we come to the end of another year at Grass Roots we are thankful for all our customers and look forward to another great year in 2016! Please know that with the upcoming holiday season your service day may shift during the week leading up to, or just after, a scheduled holiday. Grass Roots will be closed December 23rd – January 2nd so our employees can spend the holidays with their families. Hope you and your loved ones have a Merry Christmas and a peaceful New Year!
As the grass begins to go dormant your lawn maintenance crew will continue to focus on removal of all those falling leaves and keeping your turf free of debris. With your November invoice, you also should have received a note about Crape Myrtle Pruning and its detrimental effects to the tree. If you still want your Crape Myrtle pruned, please notify us prior to the end of January so we have your request on file.
If you are an irrigation program customer, we will be coming out soon to shut down your irrigation system and winterize it. Our technician will put a tag on your system to let you know that it has been shut down. Those customers taking care of their own systems will want to make sure to shut down the system prior to the first hard freeze we experience.
Lawn Care and Shrub Care
Your lawn has received its last application for the year, a pre-emergent to help keep winter weeds from germinating, along with liquid Potassium to help prepare your lawn for dormancy. It is still the time of year when your turf is susceptible to a fungus called brown patch, especially if your grass is getting too much water. Please notify the office if you suspect that you have brown patch in your lawn.
As the growing season has ended, our landscaping operations are on “pause” until springtime. If you are interested in having landscaping done in 2016, you are welcome to call the office to set up a time to meet with our landscape designer to plan and discuss projects in early spring.
Merry Christmas from Kathy and Angelle (and Harley, too) at the Grass Roots business office! Please call or email us with any of your questions. We can be reached by phone Monday-Friday from 8:30 – 5:00. If we are on the other line and you have to leave a message, please be assured it will be returned as soon as possible.
