HOT, HAZY, HUMID
The dog days of summer are here. That means you must be sure that
your newly planted trees and shrubs are receiving the proper amount
of water. Proper watering ensures that the moisture gets down into
the soil for the trees and shrubs to use. It's best to water
deeply and not as frequently.
SHRUB TRIMMING AND PRUNING
Lawn Service team has been very busy these past
three weeks. For those in Hagerstown, Maryland, and the
surrounding areas, have your shrubs been trimmed?
Take a few minutes in the cool air conditioning, and watch Tom
explain proper shrub trimming on the Emerald Green Arborvitae that's
found in Washington County, Maryland, in the video below.
It's time for treatment number three in the summer lawn application
program. Even though summer brings dry weather, reduced growth, and
physical stress to the grass, your lawn remains susceptible to insect
damage, which is sometimes mistaken for drought.
The third lawn treatment application will help control various surface
feeding, grass damaging insects. However, it's important to note that
the treatment does not control grubs.
It's no secret that a beautiful lawn doesn't happen on its own in
Washington County, Maryland. Take a few minutes and watch the
Grosh’s Lawn Service YouTube Video on our lawn care treatments.

If you see
the Grosh's Lawn Service team out and about in July, that's because
we are still mowing high to save valuable soil moisture. The higher
grass means that more of the grass blade can shade the soil.
now being mulched; the existing grass clippings will return
to the top soil. This helps add matter and nutrients back into
the soil for later use.

the cool indoors and enjoy some great photos of our work, Washington

Now that we
are in July, make sure you keep an eye out for bagworm activity. July
is when the bagworm is most active.
If the bagworms are few and easy to reach, just pull them off and
properly dispose of them. Make sure that you do not just throw the
bagworms on the ground without crushing them, as this will not prevent
them from coming back.
But, if your bagworms are out of reach, insecticide will be needed.
Contact Tom at GroshsLawnService.com to help
with your bagworm removal.
