Fall-ing For You

Oct02 inspirational

Fall is a magical time in the St. Cloud area. Our stunning color shows and crisp weather make for a lovely season. Unfortunately, fall "leaves" us with a lot of cleanup. That's where Emerald Companies (St. Cloud, MN) comes in! Emerald takes pride in keeping your yard in the best condition no matter the season, so be sure to schedule your fall cleanup with Emerald Companies. We'll take care of winterizing your lawn, mowing it down short, and vacuuming up leaves. Emerald will blow out excess leaves under and around structures as well, such as rock beds and shrubs, and haul them offsite. Even better, Emerald partners with a local farmer to naturally dispose of the leaves and use them for farming purposes such as bedding or out in the fields. At Emerald, we care about the environment, and recycling leaves is just one way we keep our commitment to being green. Trust your St. Cloud lawn care and yard cleanup to the experts at Emerald Companies. Call (320) 251-5296 today and schedule your free consultation.

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!
