Hello Saint Cloud! Wow, what a busy summer we had! Thanks to all of our great lawn care and landscape project clients for making this summer one of our best ever.
We are excited about the cool weather, and wanted to remind you that this is the perfect time for cleaning up flower beds, trimming trees, getting the moss out of your trees (but wait until November for that, so they are nice and creepy looking for Halloween) and weeding out any of those places that are just to hard to tackle in the summer heat.
Starting in October, you will probably need to mow your lawn every 10 – 14 days. So, in keeping with your schedule, the off week for mowing should be your “on” week for other projects. If you space these out, by the time Thanksgiving is here, you will have a lush and spruced up lawn, ready for holiday decorations.
When we do professional maintenance for our clients, we always have a plan. But it is simple to translate this into your own personal routine as well. If you stick to your plan, you will find that you can have a beautiful lawn with just one – two (or so) hours per week work. Try this for each month (not summer!):
Sometimes you make new friends while tree trimming! This owl we met on a project near Rummel Rd, Saint Cloud, FL!
Week 1 - Mow, weed-eat all areas (including those hidden places you overlook), edge drive way and side-walk. Always blow off drive-ways and footpaths, or rake up clippings.
Week 2 – Weed Flower Beds, Trim hedges, cut excess foliage from overgrowing plants
Week 3 – Mow, weed-eat, edge.
Week 4 – Trim trees, pick-up branches or excess lawn debris, check gutters and be sure they are clean.
The secret to a happy maintenance routine is to never try to “do it all” in one day. This will just exhaust you, and you will need to rest for the next 3 weekends and then one exhausting day all over again. Your home is a place where regular care should be part of the routine both inside and out. So make it fun and enjoyable.
As always, we are here to serve our friends and neighbors in Saint Cloud. If you have any questions call Jim at 407-319-8899.
