Corkscrew Crotons are great for adding color!

These corkscrew crotons are beautiful and a great way to add some color to your landscape beds.  They are very easy to maintain and require little upkeep.  Just remember to cover if there is a freeze, which I don’t think we will have to worry about anymore!

Love the Azalea’s this time of year!

Azalea’s are in full bloom everywhere and are a delight to see! This is a picture from one of our lawn maintenance customers homes in Brandon. These bushes do really well in a shady area with high acidity. Areas with lots of oak tree canopy make excellent areas to grow beautiful bushes.

Sprinkler repair in Fishhawk. Replaced 4in with 6in pop-up spray heads.

Add a doughnut to protect the head from lawn mower and car tires. Keep the head clean by spot spraying round-up on the sprinkler heads once a month […]
