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!

No 'Lion

May03_inspirationalEmerald Companies (St. Cloud, MN), your lawn care experts, understand how dandelions grow and spread. Dandelions are perennials, like hostas, so they will keep coming back.

As long as you don't have a neighbor with a dandelion field, you CAN get them under control with some time and effort. Emerald Companies is here to help! In cooler times, the plants are dormant. When it warms up, they pop up. Now is the time to get them under control and reduce their numbers. Emerald doesn't blanket spray and waste chemicals in the summertime. Our goal is to reduce the use of chemicals and only use them at appropriate and effective times. Trust the experts at Emerald. Call (320)-251-5296 today and set up your free consultation. No 'lion!
