* Check your plants for insects and disease and treat according

* Sprays work early to mid June for bagworms, after that you need to hand pick and destroy bagworms

* Keep an eye out for Japanese beetles

* Keep annual flowers deadheaded through the entire growing season to promote new blooms

* Allow bulb foliage to completely yellow, then cut it back to the ground

* Prune any spring-flowering shrubs and trees as needed

* Cut back fall blooming perennials such as mums by 1/3 until the 4th of July to prevent the need for staking and to delay bloom

Going Green

We are in the Green Industry, although the new buzz-word “Green” that is brought up daily by marketing firms, Congress and the media may have different meanings.  At Croy’s Mowing, we believe that “Going Green” means trying to lessen our impact on the environment and using good horticultural practices to achieve this goal.  With over 22 years of experience and education, we use these practices daily to help keep your lawn beautiful and healthy.  We practice a lot of recycle and reuse methods such as re-using mulch and salt bags as trash bags, shredding office paper for use in our gardens and sorting recyclables out of the debris we pick up while mowing.  Also, organic materials (shrub clippings, grass, leaves etc.) are recycled into mulch or compost.
