Activities this month
Those perennials and shrubs that have bloomed are being deadheaded.  Typically weeds are less prevalent because of higher temperatures, however because rainy conditions and cooler than normal temperatures persist we are seeing weeds in prolific numbers.
Those conditions perfect for more weeds are also perfect for issues with fungus and insects, both in the turf and on plants.  As those issues are brought to our attention, we will first get your approval to treat for them, prior to any application being made.  These issues may need to be treated more than once to get them under control.
Our crew leaders have been good about reporting weeds in turf.  We are diligently working at spot spraying weeds like clover, crabgrass and the like.
Irrigation
Should you wish to schedule a mid-season inspection please contact Donna at dvignocchi@iltvignocchi.com or call or text at 847.613.5102.
Mums and Bulbs
With today’s temperatures fall isn’t feeling quite so far away.  If you are considering the installation of mums, kale, pansies, or the like, please don’t hesitate to contact your account manager.
Bulb ordering is also in full swing.  There are so many exciting varieties to chose from!  Do you have deer and are fearful of investing in tulips?  Consider daffodils.  They introduce new varieties every year that make the old standard a little more interesting.
