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...

April Newsletter | Things to do now…

Posted by on Apr 18, 2019 in landscaping, newsletter, spring | 0 comments

April Newsletter | Things to do now… ———————————————- – 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 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. Grow Land specializes in winter-to-summer transitions, so call us for pricing! If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to call us for a free consultation at 602-689-2947. We are here to help. (Read online...

MONSOONS! – Grow Land can help with these tips…

MONSOONS! – Grow Land can help with these tips… MONSOONS are IN, Big Time! Call us right away if you have trees that need trimming. The winds cause a lot of unnecessary damage in trees that are not prepared for this season. Tree staking and the wind – we can fix it! Call us for a free consultation. The weather is HOT, so please watch for signs of stressed out plants and check your watering. If Grow Land is not weekly maintaining your property, then “check that system!” It’s still a good time for installing sod and planting summer grasses. Note that new grass CANNOT be overseeded the first year. Don’t let your maintenance guys tell you different. Citrus trees need their 3rd deep fertilizing scheduled for August. (Feb/May/Aug/Oct) We use a totally ORGANIC fertilizer. Don’t settle for topical alternatives! Desert trees can be trimmed now, and we provide full tree service – planting, trimming, disease treatment and removal. Check your sprinkler system. OVERWATERING HAPPENS FAST IN THE MONSOON WEATHER! Set timings for this seasonal transition. Remember that soil types and location are important, so call us if you need help. *Note: Winter grass overseeding preparation is only 6 weeks away…..this means it’s time to have us go through your sprinkler system (so call us!) at 602-689-2947. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to call us for a free consultation at 602-689-2947. Or Click Here to use online form to contact us. We are here to...

Bocce Court at McCormick Ranch

Posted by on Apr 12, 2018 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

This project of the month included a state of the art bocce court right here in McCormick Ranch, worthy of tournament play! This owner wanted to give their business tenants both a space for relaxing, and a space to release, and we think they hit a home run! From the planning stages to the final walk-through, we built this project in collaboration with the general contractor and modified our calendar and schedule to make this happen, even working on the weekends and off hours. This is a true public outdoor gathering space for all the tenants in this business center, and provides a fantastic outlet for them to commune and relax between work sessions. The outdoor courtyard space includes escapes for those who desire either a serene lounge area or want that combined with an outdoor sport area. This is truly a complete 360 degree space! We have since been contacted by the owners of this court, and will be guest hosting a bocce round-robin tournament for their tenants. As with every project, we provided our “like it was my house” service, and now we maintain this public bocce court, and keep it looking fantastic and ready to play! Commercial Bocce Court With hardscape elements Tenants love the court A game in...

Bocce court at Dancing Apache Winery

Posted by on Apr 12, 2018 in bocce court, construction, newsletter | 0 comments

This Bocce Court & Horseshoe Pit installation is our featured project of the month, and this family operated winery at Dancing Apache Ranch wanted activity / game play features for a special events wine tasting room, as well as one for a more private “family” gathering space. Their choices were bocce & horseshoes, and we couldn’t have been happier to create this for them! We first had to meet with the client to select the location for each amenity, and after a little brainstorming and checking out our other bocce & horseshoe courts online, we think we nailed it…the bocce court selection was directly adjacent to this cool outdoor tasting room. The view from the bocce court is the barn-converted tasting room on one side, and the vineyards on the other….PERFECT! If that wasn’t enough, we also installed new matching-themed landscape lighting with bronze fixtures and a programmable timer. Now the competition starts with wine and goes on into the dark… Next came the locale for the family horseshoe pits, and the natural spot was right next to the most popular family gathering area. Where you ask?…why, the kitchen / outdoor dining ramada of course! This added sport amenity really brings the family together, both young and old, and the simple style ties that ranch theme destination together full circle. With a little sod removal and some grading, this completed install was a total ringer, with everybody a winner. Adding sport amenities to gathering spaces is a great way to bring family and friends together. From the bocce court at the tasting room to the horseshoe pits at the ramada, the installation of these two activities included all the finishing touches. One look at the bocce court proves why we are the top bocce court builder in Arizona! As with every project, we provided our “like it was my house” service. Call us for your very own creation!        ...
