Safe Lawns of Salem Timely Tips
Now is the time for: Lawn and Garden Insect Control
Keep an eye out for insect pests that can harm your lawn, trees, shrubs, and other plants! A traditional lawn care program will include a preventative insect control application. Organic lawn care customers should report any changes in the appearance of their lawns. Don’t forget to check azaleas and pieris for lacebug, mugo pine for sawfly larvae, and holly and euonymous for scale. Call us for solutions for all insect pest problems.
Now is the time for: Summertime Lawn, Tree, & Shrub Care
All lawn care customers will have their yearly soil test this month. Lawns are usually not fertilized in the Summer unless they are watered by an irrigation system. It’s OK to skip lawn mowing during hot, dry weather. Resist the temptation to overwater lawns and plants. It is best to water at a time when the grass and foliage will dry off the most quickly as wetness can lead to disease. Call us for solutions and how to get your soil testing and analysis.
