April Newsletter 2016

Happy Spring to all of you and your gardens that are coming alive from the mild winter that we had this year. This Spring is starting out as one of our busiest ever. When Spring/Summer is followed by a mild Winter we are all in store for a rapid regrowth and development and all sorts of surprises good and bad. The good news is that the Gibbs’ Managers and Teams are well educated and prepared for what this Spring will bring.

Gibbs Landscape

Azaleas, Dogwoods, Redbuds, Spireas, Viburnums, Forsythia, fiddleheads on Ferns and perennials have been outstanding this year. Fescue turf is gleaming right now and is receiving another blast of liquid fertilizer this month perfectly timed with the weather. By performing all of our turf fertilization and weed control treatments in house we can control timing of product application. This delivers better results. Warm season turf is just now coming out of dormancy and is greening nicely. Let’s hope that weather doesn’t dip to below 33 degrees before the 15th of April. If so, we may see a delay of greening for another 3-4 weeks.

Granular fertilizers for shrubs will be completed this month and liquid rounds to follow through the summer months.

We are anticipating some heavier than normal disease and insect pressures this year from the mild winter that we just experienced. Managers and crews are on the lookout for Cercospora needle blights on conifers, Phomopsis blight on conifers, Volutella blight on Boxwoods and early insect population swings. We have had an early Aphid population and crews have been managing those very quickly. Tree and shrub injections are always the best preventative on susceptible plant species.

Poa annua and Poa trivialis continues to be the worst weed in fescue in the nation and has now continued its aggressive foothold in the Southeast. We are all anxiously anticipating for the scientists in the labs to help us all out with this grassy weed.

Crews are pruning on all properties right now, making thinning and corrective cuts and shaping shrubs for the continued onset of new leaf growth that the shrubs will develop over the next 6 months. Pruning is top priority each week to ensure overall healthy plant material.

Installation of new outdoor entertaining areas combined with new turf, trees and shrubs are the best way to create additional value to your properties. Hot trends now are outdoor entertainment, cooking and lawn game areas for family and friends. Contact your manager and they can put you in contact with our 5 Landscape Architects on staff who can help you with your design/build projects.

Look forward to more blooms out there coming from new Summer Annual Flower installations. Our Seasonal Flower Designers have been busy all Winter designing new color combinations and new varieties of flowers for all your seasonal flower beds and containers. Our flower installers are trained and ready for the next wave of flower installations.
Thank you so much for allowing us the privilege to service you and your properties.

This month our Landscape Maintenance Teams will be focused on leaf removal. With cooler temperatures and steady rains the leaves are dropping and accumulating. Each week our teams will be removing leaves and hauling them off the properties. We hope to be complete by 2nd to 3rd week of December so new pine straw or mulch can be installed in December. Rain is greatly affecting our leaf removal so please bear with us. Seasonal flower installations are under way and we will be installing flowers all this month. Daffodil bulb plantings are scheduled this month – please talk with your manager if you would like a Daffodil display installed anywhere in your garden. Daffodils are a great way to add color to the landscape and they bloom year to year and are not disturbed by deer, chipmunks or squirrels. They also offer a great burst of color in the late winter when there is really nothing else blooming. Irrigation systems will begin to be winterized. We will start the middle of this month and carry through to the end of December. Our landscape installation teams are extremely busy this time of the year and are booking out through December. September – March are the absolute best time to plant shrubs and trees. When planting this time of year no automatic irrigation systems or hand watering will have to be performed. Thus saving money on your project. Plant material also has the entire winter to establish its root system before the warmer summer temperatures arrive. Fescue sod is available now and can be installed by the pallet. We now have 5 award winning Landscape Architects on staff for your landscape design needs.

Turf care is crucial at this time of the year. Fescue is growing in from the re seeding that took place last month and touch up applications are under way. We are applying our last fescue fertilizer of the year to carry the deep dark green fescue color to January. Warm season turf the Bermuda and Zoysia grass will be receiving a pre emergent and post emergent liquid blend to knockout winter weeds and especially Poa annua. Without this application all Atlanta warm season lawns would be riddled with Poa. If only we had a product to eliminate Poa from Fescue? With the cooler temperatures and rain warm season Zoysia turf may experience circular fungal rings. The managers and crews are on the lookout and will let you know if you need a fungal application to stop the spread of the fungus.

Time to Plant!

Tuesday, April 14th, 2009

The Spring season is one of the best times to begin that new project you have been thinking about. New plant material installed in the spring has plenty of time to get rooted in before warmer summer weather arrives. Soil temperatures are warmer in the spring which helps the new plant root system immediately establish itself.
The first four months of the year have brought plentiful rains which have caused the state climatologist to declare the drought over in Atlanta. If you are interested in meeting with one of our award winning architects please contact us.
