Preparing and Protecting Your Home during Hurricane Season
Preparing and Protecting Your Home during Hurricane Season.png

 

What Is Known

 

If you live near or are visiting the Gulf Coast area, you should know hurricane season around here is now.  More specifically, hurricane season runs from June 1st to November 30th - September being the most active month, with the climatological peak happening around the 10th of September (that’s climate geek-speak for statistically the most likely day to find storm activity in the Atlantic Basin).

 

Hurricanes are caused by a lack of wind shear combined with warm water, a mishmash of evaporation, higher winds and other phenomena that, mixed together, create the potential for destructive weather.

 

Our big storm from last year, Hurricane Sally, produced over 3 million cubic yards of debris – more than Ivan did ten years previously, at an estimated damage value of $5-7 Billion! Almost no one was immune to some sort of landscape loss.

 

Predicting is not Preparing

 

We are all aware of the weather changes along the Gulf Coast as fast as all get out, and during these summer months when we’re not preoccupied with pools and beaches or praying for football, we’re watching or listening to the latest news for rain, humidity – and hurricanes. But paying attention to weather patterns in the form of cones or cooked spaghetti and making decisions based on predictions can be a recipe for disaster.

 

When it looks as though we may be in the path, even early on, it’s time to review things like food, water, fuel, an alternate means of power (i.e. batteries, generators), and your or your family’s evacuation plan.  What is too often overlooked, however, is preparing the outside of your home, to include your landscaping.


 

But preparing also means thinking of hurricanes BEFORE you plant! Tree locations, for example, should be carefully considered, like proximity to a structure can be the difference between windows being replaced or surviving the storm. 

 

Give us a call when you are looking at design, and our experts will help you consider the possibilities to get the maximum appeal from your trees as well as help determine practical locations to minimize storm damage. 

 

Prevent Pots & Plants Being Projectiles

 

When getting prepared for the impending storm, think beyond just the rain. There’s the potential for high winds, flooding, flying debris, and so on.  Wrap larger plants in a heavier burlap tied with rather robust string, rope or bungees.  Build a canopy around garden plants, wrapping them if possible.

 

In the case of storm prepping, look at your beautiful design of potted plants, not as the work it will take to piece it back together once it passes, but the projectile you may have sitting close to your vehicles, homes or other out-buildings.  Move the pots to a more protected area, such as under the cover of a garage or carport.  If they are sensitive or delicate plantings, bring them inside temporarily.

 

Planning is Prevailing

 

You’ve taken all these steps or some form thereof, and now you’re ready, right?  Not so fast.  What about your gutters?  They need to be cleaned out.

 

Take another look at your trees to ensure there aren’t more limbs to take out, palm fronds to pull down or cut, or pieces already on the ground.  Think about pruning to create some better openings for the wind to pass through.

 

And once the storm has passed, there is the cleanup involved.  Heavy limbs, upturned sod or garden patches, etc., all need to be addressed as quickly as possible.

 

One thing to remember: take pictures and document ALL of your damage.  Landscaping included!

 

Now What?

 

The aftermath of any devastating storm can at times be overwhelming, but with a post plan in mind, the days ahead need not be quite so daunting.  When steps are taken before the storm, it can make a big difference when it is deemed safe to venture out and survey what you are facing.  

 

But you are not alone.  Krob can help, both before and after.  We will help with design to potentially reduce plant loss to a storm. And we clean gutters, do clearing of debris, can blow off roofs, and so on.

Reasons Commercial Landscape is a Must for your Business
Everything You Need to Know About Krob Landscape’s Lawn Management (1).png

 

Curb Appeal Attracts Customers

A recent survey of a southern community found that 74% of the public will frequent businesses based on landscaping, including parking lots and areas in front and around your building.  

You can stand out amongst your competitors with thoughtful and tasteful design, installation and maintenance of the outside spaces surrounding your business. 

More than owners think, consumers will pull into a parking lot, only to pull away if the business looks unkempt or uncared for, even without knowing anything else! Point is, make your curb appeal, appealing.

 

Focus On Your Business

The world seems to be spinning faster and faster each day, with little signs of ever slowing down.  And that spin requires more of your time to be dedicated to the success of your business – meaning less time for those pesky tasks which nevertheless affect your bottom line.  

Like the landscaping. By partnering with Krob, we’ll take the stress out of “just another thing to do” for you. We listen, suggest, then we’ll implement our shared vision of what you want for your customers, for your company.  

Let us do our business, so you can do your business.

 

Landscape Companies Have the Proper Tools

Nothing is more aggravating than needing the right tool for whatever task you are wishing to accomplish.  And just as the right wrench, ladder or software can save time for either the DIYer or business owner, so can having the right landscaping tools.  

Problem is, good landscaping requires much more than just a garden rake or shovel of some kind. Garden tools, fertilizer, ladders, trash removal material and so on, not only make the job easier, they can make the difference between “eh” and “wow!”  However, the investment can be significant if you want to do it yourself.  

But Krob relieves you of having specific tools, and of keeping a schedule to maintain your yard or lawn.  We also use premium tools and material, meaning your landscape is not only done well, and on time, it’s done with quality results.

 

Think Safety

Trees are your thing, so you’d like to incorporate them into your design.  Gardens add to the overall pleasing effect of your business, and you’d prefer a natural-looking area surrounding your location.

But with trees come limbs, branches or sticks, and so does the opportunity for them to fall where and when they shouldn’t, and often when you least expect or realize it.  Nature is a wonderful thing, but pests love it, too.  

Krob’s professionals can spot and properly care for trees before they are a liability, and are trained to spot potential pest control problems so that your landscape is maintained not only aesthetically, but with safety in mind as well.

 

Lower Your Energy Bills

That’s right, lower them.  By selectively planting well-placed trees and shrubs, you can provide shade to your place of business, and help reduce heat absorption, which in turn lowers air conditioning requirements.  Shrubs protect from heat against your building’s walls and windows, while trees can help with taller structures.

Krob will help select the ideal spots, and their expertise ensures your building is protected against both erosion and water saturation, by allowing wind flow and drainage away.  Smart! 

 

Be A Community Leader

Your street, your block, your neighborhood.  The poet Alexander Smith once said, “A man doesn't plant a tree for himself. He plants it for posterity.” When you care about how you look, others take notice.  

And when they care, the seed is planted for everyone to care about, now, and in the future.  Your commercial landscape means more than just beautifying your immediate spaces, it means you believe in bringing others around you up.  

We at Krob believe in working with businesses to develop comprehensive yet elegant landscapes and are committed to helping you succeed by creating a pleasing and carefully planned design.

Everything You Need to Know About Krob Landscape’s Lawn Management
Everything You Need to Know About Krob Landscape’s Lawn Management.png

 

If managing your lawn is driving you to madness, you’re not alone. A lush carpet of vibrant green grass will certainly boost your curb appeal, but keeping it that way can be a real drain on your time and energy (not to mention your wallet).

 

The good news is, you don’t have to mow the months away. Hiring a lawn management service like Krob Landscape can give you the best of both worlds: a lush, healthy lawn and the time you need to enjoy it. 

 

If handing over your lawn management hasn’t crossed your mind, here’s everything you need to know about Krob Landscape’s Lawn Management.  

 

Mowing

 

Believe it or not, mowing isn’t only about the way your lawn looks. A proper mow actually keeps your lawn healthy and resistant to problems, which helps it stay spectacular for seasons to come. 

 

At Krob Landscape, we provide a masterful mow each and every time. Our professionals know the optimal height for your turf type and use specialized mowing equipment to keep your lawn nice and neat (so no more hours spent sharpening your mower blades). We even offer customizable schedules to provide personal service all season long. 

 

Hedging

 

If you’re tired of spending hours hacking at your hedges, Krob Landscape has the solution you’ve been searching for. Our professional landscape staff knows how - and when - to prune your hedges to keep them square in shape (or any other shape you desire). After giving your hedges a happy trim, we’ll clean up the clippings to leave your landscape in clean and perfect condition. 

 

Edging

 

Edging looks excellent, but it takes the right tools and extra time many homeowners don’t have. Luckily, Krob Landscape has the skills and the service to give your entire lawn a crisp, clean look. Our specialists know how to shape up any edge, from garden beds to sidewalks to driveways and more. 

 

Lawn Blowing

 

After a good mow, discarded lawn debris can leave your landscape with a less-than-desirable look - and hours of clean-up time. Luckily, Krob Landscaping can handle both without handing you any additional stress. Our team uses professional-grade blowers to rid your driveway, deck, and any other hard surfaces of unsightly lawn clippings for a clean, polished landscape. 

 

Fertilizing and Pre/Post Emergents

 

If you’ve ever gotten frazzled in the fertilizer aisle, you’re not alone. There are so many choices in chemical landscape products, and the wrong one may harm more than help the health of your lawn.

 

The good news is, there’s an easier way. Krob Landscape has a team of expert lawn professionals that know which fertilizers to apply - and which ones to avoid - for a lush, healthy lawn. We can even take the worry out of weeds with pre- and post-emergents that prevent and protect your lawn from unwanted invaders.  

 

Mulching

 

A layer of mulch can help you make the most out of your landscape. Beyond keeping your plants in prime condition, a perfectly paired mulch can add a pop of sophistication to your overall landscape look.

 

However, making the most out of mulch isn’t always as easy as it sounds. Too much mulch can suffocate your soil, while too little leaves the root systems exposed. Mulch also comes in a variety of styles and sizes that each bring unique pros and cons to your plants. 

 

Krob Landscape can take the madness out of mulching by helping you choose the right form and applying it in the right places for maximum benefit to your plants. With seasonal service, we’ll even maintain your mulch at optimal levels month after month for a magnificent look all year long. 

 

Personal Lawn Programs

 

Your lawn is special - and your lawn care should be, too. Krob Landscape offers residential lawn management (RLM) programs that are completely customizable, from personal services to tailored schedules for every season. If you’re ready to love your lawn again, contact us today! 


4 Tips to Keep Your Lawn Low-Maintenance
4 Tips to Keep Your Lawn Low-Maintenance.png

 

Is maintaining your lawn making you crazy? Having the lushest lawn on the block requires some work, but it shouldn’t eat up every second of your season. If you feel like you’re spending more time mowing your yard than making memories in it, it’s time to rethink your lawn maintenance. By making a few minor changes, you can tend a lush, low-maintenance lawn that looks wonderful with half the work.

 

Install irrigation Systems

 

If you’re tired of handling the hose, invest in irrigation to turn watering your lawn (and landscape) into a truly low-maintenance matter. Many irrigation systems work on a timer, allowing you to set an automated watering schedule at set times and days of the week. Some advanced systems even feature weather and moisture sensors that help it deliver the right amount of water at any given time, saving you the stress of determining the right soak per season. 

 

Mow More 

 

While it may seem contradictory to suggest more mowing, creating a lush, healthy lawn is the fastest way to cut down on routine maintenance. Many homeowners fall into the trap of letting their lawn grow tall, then cutting it extremely short. However, this will kill your lawn over time and lead to a host of time-consuming and expensive problems. 

 

Instead, mow more frequently and limit each mow to no more than ⅓ of the total blade height. This will also create smaller grass clippings that act as a natural fertilizer without suffocating your grass, so remove the mower bag and let the clippings lie.

 

Control Weeds Early

 

Once weeds take root in your lawn, getting rid of them can turn into a full-time job. To save you hours of time in late-season weed control, apply pre-emergents before the growing season to halt weed growth before they germinate. Many pre-emergent blends also include a fertilizer, helping your summer lawn grow strong and green with half the work. 

 

Get the right grass

 

When installing or reseeding your Alabama lawn, choose a grass that is suited to our subtropical climate. Warm-season grasses like Bermuda and Zoysia thrive in high temperatures, requiring less water, fertilizer, and care than other turf types. Speak with a landscape professional or visit our local extension if you need help choosing the right grass for your landscape. 

 

Bonus Tip: Let Krob Landscape handle it!

Of course, the easiest way to get a truly low-maintenance lawn is to turn your routine maintenance over to the professionals. Krob Landscape offers customized management programs that handle every step of your lawn maintenance to keep it healthy while lightening your chore list. Contact us today for a free quote! 


4 Ways to Protect Your Landscape From the Heat
4 Ways to Protect Your Landscape From the Heat.png

 

If there’s one thing summer is sure to bring to lower Alabama, it’s heat. Our area routinely has some of the hottest summer temps in the country, creating a sweltering season that’s hard on all living things - especially your landscape. 

 

Hot weather can be brutal on your plants. Like humans, they need extra care to ensure they stay hydrated and healthy during periods of extreme heat. Unfortunately, those high temperatures also make it hard to get excited about hours of heavy yard work. 

 

The good news, a few easy steps can help your plants keep their cool under the sun’s scorching rays. As temperatures rise, follow these four easy tips to protect your landscape from the heat. 

 

MOW A LITTLE LONGER

 

During the summer, avoid the temptation to cut your grass as short as possible. While this may extend the time between mows, taller grass will cast longer shadows that help your soil retain moisture and protect it from the sun. During periods of high heat, raise your mower blades to keep your grass between three and six inches tall. You can also leave the clippings on the lawn for a bit of natural mulch. 

 

WATER THE RIGHT WAY

 

Like humans, plants need proper hydration to survive the summer heat. However, it’s not as easy as giving your landscape a good soak every time you get the chance. When it comes to heat and hydration, you need to water the right way, at the right time. 

 

Water evaporates very quickly during periods of high heat, especially at the peak of the day. To help your lawn and plants retain moisture, aim to water them during the early morning. This cuts down on the amount of water lost to wind and evaporation and allows the roots to absorb the most moisture before the highest heat of the day. 

 

There are many ways to water your plants, but some are more beneficial than others. When temperatures are high, it’s best to apply water directly to the soil rather than using an overhead sprinkler. This is because less water is lost to evaporation, and foliage stays dry, minimizing diseases. This method can be done with a drip irrigation system or by using a soaker hose. 

 

APPLY MULCH

 

Mulch is beneficial all year long, but it is especially good at protecting plants from the summer heat. A layer of mulch insulates the soil, helping to reduce evaporation and protecting the delicate plant roots from extreme heat. It will also help control weeds that compete against your plants for moisture and nutrients. 

 

For best results, apply a layer of light-colored organic mulch to your beds and around plants and shrubs. Two to Three inches should suffice - anymore and you risk suffocating shallow plant roots. Avoid piling mulch around the base of trees, which can lead to rot and disease. 

 

PROVIDE SHADE

 

Provide shade to protect your plants from the stress of the overhead sun. You don’t have to get fancy - a big beach umbrella, old bedsheets, or even propped-up cardboard should suffice. You can also use shade cloth, an airy material at your local home and garden store that provides temporary protection from the sun to garden plants. The key is to choose a shade that blocks the sun without hindering natural airflow. 

 

A lush landscape can help you create the coolest home on the block - if you can help it handle the heat. If you prefer to skip the summer strain, let the professionals at Krob Landscape handle the work for you. Our landscape maintenance plans cover everything you need to enjoy a stress-free landscape all year long. Contact us today!


The Best Times To Mulch Your Beds
the best time to mulch your beds.png

When is the best time to mulch your beds? Even landscape enthusiasts find themselves
asking this common question. Mulching is one of the best things you can do to preserve the
health and beauty of your landscape - if you add it at the right time. Add your mulch too early or
too late and you may get the blanket with none of the benefits.


The good news is, taking stock of your beds, your goals, and the weather can help you find just
the right time. In this article, we’ll break down everything you need to know to decide the best
time to mulch your beds.


Why Mulch Matters


When it comes to mulching, the why is just as important as the when. While mulching certainly
helps your landscape maintain a polished appearance all year long, it also has some key
benefits that explain why some times are better for mulching than others. The benefits of mulch
include:


Weed Control. Mulch acts as a natural weed suppressant because it blocks sunlight from
reaching the soil, smothering any weeds that are trying to germinate and grow. It also prevents
any loose weed seeds that are blown into your beds from reaching the soil below.


Fertilization. Organic mulch such as pine straw, leaves, and grass clippings break down over
time and naturally fertilize your bed soil, leading to improved plant growth.


Stable Soil Temperature. Applying a layer of mulch on top of your soil helps it maintain a
stable temperature in extreme heat or cold. It also protects the roots of your plants, which
typically extend only an inch or two into the topsoil.


Maintains Soil Moisture. Heat and wind cause the moisture in your soil to quickly evaporate.
As temperatures rise, adding a layer of mulch holds moisture in the soil, cutting back on how
often you need to water your beds.


When To Mulch


So you need to add mulch to your beds. When is the best time?
In general, the best time to add mulch to your beds is in mid to late spring. This will help your
landscape with weed control, protect your soil from the summer sun, and create a contrasting
look against your vibrant spring plants.

Ideally, you want to mulch after soil temperatures have warmed but before weeds have the
chance to sprout in your beds. Mulching too early in the season can prevent your soil from
thawing and delay your seasonal blooms.

Many gardeners also add a layer of mulch to their beds in the fall. Fall mulching insulates the
soil and protects it from the extreme cold of the winter season. Fall mulch will also begin to
degrade by early spring, delivering a powerful dose of nutrients that can help your spring plants
shine.


If you can’t make time to mulch, let the professionals at Krob Landscaping handle it for you! Our
expert landscapers will use the right products at the right time to help you get the most out of
your mulch. Contact us today!


How To Help Your Landscape Spring into a Weed-Free Season
How To Help Your Landscape Spring into a Weed-Free Season.png

Spring is in sight, bringing with it warmer temperatures, gentle breezes, and vibrant new growth. It would be great if that growth was limited to lush lawns and fantastic flowers, but unfortunately, the season also brings a much less welcome guest: spring weeds.


The good news is, being proactive can help your lawn and landscape stay healthy and free of weeds all season (and year) long. In the days and weeks before spring’s arrival, complete these two easy steps to help your landscape SPRING into a weed-free season.


Use Pre-Emergents


We all know the bliss of spring’s warmer temperatures after months of winter cold. What you may not know is that the soil underneath your lawn warms long before you can feel the change in the air. This means waiting until spring weather begins to tackle weed growth is much too late - weeds have already started to germinate underground.


That’s why using pre-emergents is so important. Pre-emergents contain a mix of fertilizers and herbicides that are designed to prevent pesky weeds like crabgrass and clover from sprouting in the spring. Once applied and watered, pre-emergents will form a protective barrier that kills weeds as they attempt to germinate and grow.


Timing is key if you want to get the most from your pre-emergents. You want to apply them in the last few weeks of winter before the soil has a chance to warm, or ideally from late February to Mid-March. Although it may seem otherwise, pre-emergents are not effective at killing weeds that are already there - once they sprout from the ground, you’ll need harsher weed killers to handle them.


Lay Fresh Pine Straw


Pine straw is a tough multi-tasker - it conserves soil moisture and temperature, acts as a natural mulch, and deters weed growth, all while helping your flower beds and landscape look great.
Pine straw is a great addition to your landscape year-round, and now is one of the best times to lay a fresh batch. Like pre-emergents, pine straw works best to deter spring weeds before they begin growing. That’s because it prevents weeds by blocking seeds access to bare ground, and then deprives any new seedlings of sunlight so they can’t germinate.


As a bonus, a pre-spring application of fresh straw will also protect the growth of new plants! Spring bulbs like tulips and daffodils can easily penetrate pine straw if it’s already there, but their delicate blooms are easily trampled by new straw. You’ll want to get it applied and spread before they begin to grow to guarantee beautiful spring beds.

Why You Should Mulch Your Leaves Instead of Raking Them
Why You Should Mulch Your Leaves Instead of Raking Them.png

We all love those big and beautiful shade trees that turn such brilliant colors in the fall - until they drop into a time-consuming carpet on your lawn. Then you’re forced to spend your autumn days raking, bagging, and dragging piles of dead leaves off your grass when all you really want to do is sip your apple cider in peace.

Believe it or not, there’s a better way: mulching them. An easy ride on a mulching mower turns those fallen leaves into a free fertilizer that boosts your lawn, helps the environment, and saves you hours of time and effort.

If you need more convincing, here’s why you should mulch your leaves instead of raking them:

You’ll save time and effort. Raking, bagging, and hauling your leaves is a grueling task that can take hours out of your day. In contrast, mulching leaves is no harder than mowing your lawn - and takes the same amount of time. Now you can spend your autumn days gazing at that beautiful fall foliage instead of removing it!

You’ll save money.  While you may need to buy a mulching blade for your mower, mulching your leaves each year will save you money in the long run. That’s because you won’t need to buy industrial-strength garbage bags, pay for debris collection, or spend money on a store-bought fertilizer. Not to mention all the dollars you’ll save on doctor visits for a bum back!

You’ll naturally fertilize your lawn. Leaves contain nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium, all critical elements of lawn fertilizer. As mulched leaves decompose they release these beneficial nutrients into the soil, helping it retain moisture and balance soil chemistry. They also act as a free-for-all buffet for earthworms and microorganisms, which turn them into even more beneficial nutrients for your lawn. In other words, you’ve been throwing away bags of free fertilizer for years!

You’ll suppress weeds. Bare areas of lawn are perfect for weed germination. When you cover them with a layer of mulched leaves, you protect the root system and work with the lawn canopy to prevent pesky weeds from forming.

You’ll help the environment. By mulching your leaves, you ensure they don’t end up taking landfill space or releasing harmful chemicals into nearby waterways. They also serve as a protective habitat for local wildlife like birds, reptiles, and amphibians, which make sure your landscape has a balanced (and insect-free) ecosystem.

How to Mulch Your Leaves

Mulching leaves is unbelievably easy. Simply remove your grass catcher and mow over the leaves until they’re reduced to dime-size pieces. To avoid smothering your lawn, mow until you can see about a half inch of grass underneath the new layer. You may need to spread the mulch around or move it to nearby flower beds for even distribution.

Of course, the easiest way is to let the experts at Krob Landscape handle the mulching for you! Contact us today to learn how our residential maintenance services can handle everything from leaf removal to seasonal tree pruning and more.


When to Know it's Time for a Landscape Redesign

When to know it’s Time for a Landscape Redesign

With the seasons changing, many homeowners and businesses are curious when they should redesign their landscaping. While there is no wrong time to redesign, there are a few guidelines to follow to ensure you’re getting the most out of your time, money and effort. Krob Landscape takes the guesswork out of the equation!

While it can be tempting to DIY your landscape, it is a delicate process that needs frequent upkeep. This can become daunting when trying to balance the obligations of everyday life. We highly recommend leaving this process in the hands of the professionals.

Transitional Seasons

Fall is one of the most ideal times to redesign your landscape. The weather places less stress on plants than the droughts and uncertain weather patterns of summer. Planting during the fall allows landscaping elements to cultivate a strong root structure, making the plants prepared to endure heat and lack of water the following summer and decrease the chance of dying due to disease or pests.

Your Outdoor Space is Outdated

Like all elements of design, styles come and go. Something that was textbook chic 10 years ago could be considered an eyesore today. If it’s been at least over 8 years since a redesign, you should definitely consider one.

Your Space is not Being Efficiently Utilized

Maximum efficiency should always be a priority. If you have the space, why not use it to its full potential? Talk to a residential landscape design professional to help map out a design that makes the most sense for your space.

You Avoid Looking at your Yard

Do you find yourself ignoring your yard altogether when entering your home? You’re not alone. Landscaping can become an overwhelming process when unattended for a long period of time. Mapping out a redesign can be an empowering process for getting your yard back on track.
