Weed N Feed - Customization for Your Lawn

May01_WeedFeed

You say to yourself…it's all grass, what’s the big deal? But do you find yourself trying to get your lawn to grow? Are you not sure why your neighbors lawn looks so much better/healthier than yours?

Emerald Companies (St Cloud, MN) offers customization for lawn growth. Emerald Companies personally visits each lawn and creates a plan to meet the needs of your lawn.

For example, if your lawn is not responding well to any liquid applications, then we look at possibly switching over to a granular program of similar quality of product. The granular form of the lawn treatment may be successful for your lawn, because you're not going to have to worry about it latching onto the soil as much. If your lawn is known to be stubborn when it comes to lawn applications, we may have the solution for you.

If you have a healthy lawn and you want to maintain it, as little as four weed n feed treatments could keep your lawn healthy and looking great. If you have issues going on with your lawn, five or six application may be the solution for you.

Call Emerald Companies (St Cloud, MN) to find out what your lawn needs to look beautiful and be healthy all summer long.

When to apply pre-emergent to your yard

May04_InspirationalWhen considering how to best prevent weeds and crabgrass from overtaking your lawn, timing is crucial.

Putting down pre-emergent when it first appears is not the answer, as by this time some crabgrass seedlings have already sprouted and cannot be controlled by pre-emergent chemicals. Therefore, applying pre-emergent may kill crabgrass that has already sprouted, but any seeds it has left behind will inevitability sprout next spring.

In an effort to avoid this scenario, Emerald Companies (St Cloud, MN) advises having a team of experts perform a series of spring clean up tasks for your lawn, including dethaching (if needed), using fertilizer to help thicken your lawn, followed by the application of pre-emergent chemicals. The earlier in the spring this is done the better. An extensive procedure such as this can protect your lawn for months to come and cause fewer headaches later in the year.

Call Emerald Companies (St Cloud, MN) (320) 251-5296 for more information.

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.
