Fall is the best time to fertilize your fescue lawn. We recommend applying Fertilome Winterizer in September, October and November. Wait at least 30 days between applications. During this fall time, grass uses fertilizer to develop a stronger root system and store energy for the following year. A lawn properly fed in the fall will be healthier and better looking the entire year, and require less fertilization in the spring. Tree Top will help make you the envy of the neighborhood with dark green lush spring lawns. Our Maintenance department can give you a price to apply lawn chemicals, request one today!
Wrap the trunk of young red maples during the winter months with a paper tree wrap to prevent sunscald. Sunscald appears as a dead sunken area on the south or southwestern side of the tree trunk. The damage is caused by the heating and freezing of bark tissue. The wrap will provide the tree with extra insulation to prevent the damage from occuring. Remove the tree wrap when the tree leafs out again in the spring. The Tree Top Maintenance Department can wrap your trees for you, just call us for an estimate!
November is the best time to fertilize trees and shrubs. Fertilizing your trees has several advantages: more rapid growth, faster recovery from pruning, fewer problems with injuries and pests, and better fall foliage color.

No lawn weed is more recognized than the Dandelion. These weeds are relatively easy to control as long as they are treated at the right time.
You will get the best control by spraying in October or November the next best time is spring when they are flowering.

Spray in the middle of the mowing cycle.
Spray while they are growing well. Water the week before if needed.
