Lawn Ambitions

July02 Lanscaping St. CloudWhether you are looking to put in a new lawn, or maximize your current one, Emerald Companies (St. Cloud, MN) is on hand to help you with all your lawn ambitions. When doing your summer mowing, leaving about 3.5" may be longer than you are used to, but healthier for your lawn. Your lawn will be less stressed and have better vitality and weed control. We don't expect everyone to know this, which is where the experts at Emerald come in! July isn't the most ideal month to add a new lawn, but if you find it necessary, laying down sod is likely the best option. Trust our experienced landscapers at Emerald to give you the best, healthy lawn by ensuring the health of your soil and pre-treating for weed control when installing a new lawn from sod. This helps prevent weeds from pushing up through the brand new sod. There are many factors coming into play to ensure a healthy, lush lawn. Trust Emerald to cover all your bases. Call (320)- 251-5296 today and set up your free consultation. We look forward to meeting you!

The Other Bucket Challenge

July02 inspirational.jpg St. CloudEmerald Companies (St. Cloud, MN) is always on hand to give you the best possible landscaping for your home. If you're not sure what your lawn needs during these dry summer months, Emerald has a few suggestions for doing your own water audit. One of these is placing several buckets 10 and 15 feet away from your sprinklers and running them for ½ hour. Measure how much water is in each bucket. A good rule of thumb in very general terms is to water 1" per week, in order to soak about 5-6 inches down. Rainwater, of course, is best, but supplemental watering is best done in spaced intervals, not every day. When lawns get stressed, they get a darker tinge on top. This isn't a reason to panic, merely the sign that it needs more water. Call Emerald today (320)-251-5296 and set up your free consultation. We look forward to greening you!

When it Comes to Landscaping, We Never Sleep

ShrubTrimming

Winter in the St. Cloud area this year has been marked by generally mild temperatures with 4-5 cold days within a two week period. Such weather is ideal for shrub trimming. The lack of snowfall combined with the fact that shrubs are dormant this time of year means preliminary trimming can occur with minimal chance of damage to the surrounding plant life.

Emerald Companies (St. Cloud MN) has a rapidly filling schedule of February jobs, so if you are interested in having your landscaping looked at, please call as soon as possible.

Generally most landscaping projects can begin after the first thaw with the installation of landscaping edging. This usually requires two weeks of planning prior to the official start of the project. Emerald Companies recommends having one of our experts come out to observe your yard in person and finalize measurements along with other aspects of your project.

We might be able to start on your landscape project sooner than you think! Call Emerald Companies today (320) 251-5296.
