Things To Do Now

Things to do now… April/May Now is the last time for pruning most evergreen trees and shrubs. This is also the last chance to prune citrus and ficus and other sun-sensitive trees. Be careful. If you wait too long, new foliage will not have time to fill in before sun damage occurs. As a rule, any area of bark exposed to direct sun for 3 or 4 hours needs to be protected with shade cloth or tree wrap to prevent sunscald. Thrips begin to appear in Citrus Bloom. Don’t get alarmed at all those thrips crawling in and around your citrus blossoms. The citrus bloom is the most likely place to see thrips. Thrips vary in color from black to pale yellow. Since they pose no particular threat to citrus bloom, attempts to control them during the blooming season should be avoided to protect the honeybees. There are two general rules for pruning flowering trees and shrubs: For plants that produce blooms on old wood or last season’s growth, prune as soon as possible after the bloom ends. For flowering plants that produce blooms on new wood or this season’s growth, prune in late winter or early spring. Still time for fertilizing all trees, especially citrus deep fertilizing. It’s also a good time to apply a 2-3 inch layer of mulch around the base of trees and shrubs. This relatively inexpensive soil amendment does more to improve growing conditions around desert plants than any other treatment including fertilization. It reduces soil temperatures, runoff and evaporation, encourages nitrogen cycling and improves soil microbiology. Cut out any cold damage on tender plants as they begin to show new growth. That will be a good indication of where to cut. Wait until nights are in the high 60 degree range to start sowing seed for summer grasses. If there is a winter grass planted over existing Bermuda grass, discourage the winter grass by cutting it short and allowing it to dry out before resuming water to summer lawn grass.

Grass transition and weed control

Posted by on Apr 24, 2019 in maintenance, recommendations, spring | 0 comments

Dear Valued Grow Land Clients, The transition from winter Rye grass to summer Bermuda grass is not going as smoothly as planned this year, and this has affected maintenance clients throughout the industry in the Phoenix Metro area. This is a valley wide problem, mainly due to the excessive amount of winter/spring rain and irregular jumps up and down in temperature. The night time temperatures are the control point of Bermuda growth and Rye die off and they simply have been too inconsistent so far this season to stay on the normal schedule. We ask that you please be patient during this transition period. We have resumed watering turf and are doing our best to be proactive to what mother nature is giving us. Along with a prolonged transition period the weather has also created an excessive amount of weed production in both rock and turf areas. The spot spraying we do during regular maintenance, and pre-emergent treatments we offer at an extra charge, have helped curb production in rocked areas we have treated. For turf areas, our maintenance crew hand removes weeds as they show up and apply a weed and feed fertilizer as needed. In some instances hand removal is too labor intensive and some varieties do not die off with the weed and feed application. We have added a turf spray application that will selectively kill the weeds and not damage the winter/summer grasses. If you have not previously received the pre-emergent application or would like to discuss a turf application please contact me for pricing and details. Thank you for your business! Tim Verhoek, Maintenance Field Mgr. Grow Land, LLC 602.697.4628...
