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.
