We’re excited, proud and humbled to receive the Community Spirit Award, ‘The Watch’ created by Edward McLean.

Company’s Great Service

Tammy was a huge help and we got all the stone we needed, as well as a fire pit (not that we will get to use it this summer LOL). We will be back for some black dirt and mulch as well. Thanks Darren for your help and your company’s great service.

I was standing in the office waiting for Bill to load some sand and watching your staff. They are so organized and run that office and yard like a well-oiled machine. Congrats to you on great hiring.

Take care….

Will your garden be ready when fall comes to Edmonton?

It’s hard to believe but summer’s almost over. With the colder weather just around the corner now’s a good time to start getting your garden in gear for the winter wind-down. Keep reading for some tips that will help you get your backyard ready for fall.

1. Be good to your grass

Prepare your lawn for winter by giving it some love during the final days of summer. Boost your lawn’s health now and you’ll have a head start come spring with these tips:

  • Rake or mow fallen leaves
  • Aerate your lawn so that fertilizer can reach the roots
  • Fill in bald patches with a lawn repair kit
  • Take care of weeds
  • Apply a good winterizing fertilizer all over your lawn

2. Clean up your vegetable garden

Once the growing cycle for your herbs and vegetables is complete, you can work on cleaning up their bed:

  • Pull and compost weeds and leftover plants
  • Hoe the topsoil to remove roots and other debris
  • Work compost into the dirt
  • Cover gardening beds with a blanket of mulch

3.Don’t forget your tools

Part of your fall checklist should be devoted to thoroughly cleaning all of your landscaping materials and equipment before storing them for winter. Simply:

  • Wash away any caked-on dirt with your water hose’s pressure attachment
  • Rub vegetable oil into wooden handles to prevent winter cracking
  • Coat metal parts with a spray lubricant to protect them from rust
  • Drain the gas from your lawnmower and other power equipment
  • Change the air filters on lawnmowers and other power tools
  • Organize and stowaway landscaping materials so they’re ready for spring

4. Tend to your plants

Take care of your perennials and potted plants before overnight temperatures start to dip. A little bit of preparation during fall can help your plants survive the winter and save you time next spring.

  • Flush your potted plants with water to remove pests and then cover them with mulch before bringing them into the house for winter.
  • Prune perennials that have already gone dormant for the season.
  • Stake any newly planted trees that you have in your yard to protect them from getting damaged by fierce winter winds.
  • Plant your spring bulbs while the ground is still soft and warm.

Green Tree Pruning Review

I wanted to write a quick note with a shout out to the front end staff at the Black Dirt Company. The friendly, knowledgeable and helpful girls make coming in a great experience. I have always had quick service and great advice. Thank you, thank you.

This past week, I have had some great help from the young man out in the yard, he patiently helped me pick out the right product for the right job. Nicely done.

Thanks, Doreen from Green Tree Pruning – 780.909.7995
