While party-goers gather in New Orleans today to celebrate Mardi Gras (aka Fat Tuesday) and one last celebration before the beginning of Lent on Ash Wednesday, we’ll quietly be celebrating Yardi Gras.at YardScapes.
Yardi Gras originated in New Orleans as a result of the pandemic when houses and yards were decorated to replace the traditional krewe floats when all the parades were cancelled. We’re going to adopt the term as just another fun way to “celebrate” the anticipation of the spring season – which is now only 18 days away!
First, a complete soil analysis is performed to assess its current health. If there are nutrient deficiencies or pH problems with the soil we will recommend corrective measures or adjust the current fertilization program. If there are no issues our standard program will be followed. Each month, from May to October, you’ll see us performing the necessary treatments at the exact right time.
Not all critters in your yard are pests and we will help you control the undesirable ones. Not all pests are obvious to see either.
Monitoring your property for their tell-tale signs allows for early intervention and the use of fewer products. Pesticides are used only when insect and/or disease levels have reached intolerable levels. Our goal is to reduce our impact on the environment therefore we practice Integrated Pest Management.
Separate but related to IPM is Integrated Tick Management. While IPM has a threshold on the amount of pests allowed, ticks are a completely different process as we look to reduce their habitats on your property and ultimately, their numbers to help significantly reduce any exposure to Lyme Disease for both people and their pets.
For the past two years we’ve altered our annual Spring Day of Service due to covid restrictions and protocols and held socially-distant community-wide litter pick ups.
This year, we will be happy to get together once again with coworkers and business associates to perform spring cleanups at a few non-profit organizations in our community and then enjoy a team-building cookout back at HQ. Of course, we will always encourage you to pick up litter and share your photos with us!
