Irrigation System Service and Repair
Irrigation systems periodically require maintenance and repair in order to operate effectively and efficiently. Spending a little on preventative irrigation maintenance may save you a lot later on costly repairs or unnecessarily high water bills. Reasons for sprinkler system maintenance or repair include:
Leaks or excessively wet areas when the system is not running.
Sprinkler heads broken, missing, or not spraying correctly.
Controller, rain sensor, or timer working incorrectly.
Water bills excessively high.
Plant, tree, or turf health problems such as brown patches on lawn, excessive leaves missing from sections of the tree, chronic pest or disease problems on flowers, grasses, and foliage.
Your irrigation system has no maintenance history.

Mulch is a protective covering, usually of organic matter, placed around plants to prevent the evaporation of moisture, the freezing of roots and the growth of weeds. We mulch to keep watering requirements low, protect the roots of plants in the winter, keep weeds down, enrich the soil and for aesthetic reasons.
Hedges, Bushes and Shrubbery need maintenance and need to be trimmed on a regular basis. This is not just to make the Hedges, Bushes, and Shrubbery look better but because it is also good for the plant.
Regular Trimming of Hedges, Bushes and Shrubbery's will not only make the plant healthier but also promotes fresh growth of the plant so that it will fill out properly without bald spots and dead ends on the plant. If you would like to have your Hedges, Bushes, and Shrubbery's trimmed feel free to call us and one of our Landscaping Specialists will come out to you home and give you a free quote.
Some species may survive transplanting any time during the year when the ground is not frozen, but woody plants are preferably moved in the spring after the ground thaws and before the buds on the tree or shrub begin to swell. They may also be moved in the fall after leaf drop but before the ground freezes. Fall planting should take place soon after leaf drop, providing time for new water absorbing roots to develop before the soil freezes. This is often difficult to estimate in the Northern Plains. Since evergreens are especially prone to winter browning if planting is delayed until shortly before the ground freezes in the fall, they should be moved late in the summer to early fall. Properly applied antitranspirants may help reduce the effects of winter desiccation in some species. Fall transplant success may be increased by transplanting hardy plants into sites with good soil moisture and wind protection. Woody plants that are transplanted in late spring and early summer, when shoot growth is at its peak, tend to show the greatest transplant injury.

The thatch on your lawn can be your biggest hindrance in growing a vibrant and healthy lawn. A thick thatch can prevent water and essential nutrients from reaching the soil, and the result is a lot of your time and effort wasted for a minimal result. Luckily, there are several ways that you can reduce the amount of thatch present in your lawn and thus make it easier to keep your lawn healthy.
Aeration is when a machine takes cores out of your lawn that are between 3 to 5 inches long. These are the little dirt cores that you probably threw at your friends when you were kids. When you aerate your lawn you are creating more physical space for water and nutrients to enter the soil, as well as creating more room for the grass to spread its roots.
