Time to Think About Pre-Emergents

Mar 8, 2019

Investing in preventative weed control measures in early spring will help make your gardening and yard work go from a big job to something that is manageable and enjoyable. Many local weeds are annuals which means that they grow from seed each year. The application of an early spring pre-emergent is one of the biggest time and back savers we know of to help combat weeds.

Just as the name suggests, pre-emergent herbicides are applied before weeds emerge since they work by preventing weed seeds from germinating. Most weed seeds lay dormant over the winter and begin to germinate when soil temperatures start to increase. We can help make sure your lawn and shrub beds are getting the right pre-emergent to control these weeds before they germinate. Pre-emergents are very effective against weeds such as dandelions and crabgrass. Our first two lawn applications include a pre-emergent and we plan to start putting these down just as soon as the weather cooperates.

Dormant Oil Update

Mar 1, 2019

The nature of our business puts us at the mercy of Mother Nature (lucky us ;). With the cooler temperatures we had in February we are having a later start to our dormant oil applications this year. In order to put this application down the wind, rain, and snow must not be present. Our applicators are very anxious to get started and will be out just as soon as the weather cooperates. There have been years when we were able to fertilize lawns the last week of February. We are ready to roll when the weather gives us the green light.

Trees Need TLC Too

Feb 15, 2019

Mature and healthy trees offer shade, beauty, and increased value to your property if they are given proper attention and a little “TLC”. They vary significantly in their maintenance requirements. Proper care and added nutrients and insect control can aid in establishing health and vitality to your trees and shrubs. If left to battle the ailments on their own they can easily succumb to disease and insects and could eventually wither away.

Many of us have enjoyed the unseasonably warmer temperatures this winter, but these conditions may present the early arrival of insects and pests. Starting a tree care program now will help combat the possible early onset of insect damage this year.

Call or email us today at (208) 585-9400 or info@zingidaho.com to learn more about our tree care program. Your trees and shrubs will thank you! We offer FREE estimates!

Time For Dormant Oil Applications

We will begin our dormant oil applications this month as long as mother nature continues to cooperate. Dormant oil sprays can be used any time between leaf drop in the fall and bud break in the spring. The dormant oil is basically a waxy film that covers the trunk and branches of deciduous trees and shrubs suffocating any insect eggs that are present.

We highly recommend adding this service to your tree and shrubs this month. Call or email us today for a FREE dormant oil estimate at (208) 585-9400 or info@zingidaho.com! Your trees and shrubs will thank you!

Christmas Light Removals Begin

Jan 11, 2019

We started our light takedowns on January 2nd. The weather forecast looks good so we should be able to move very quickly. In the many seasons we have been removing Christmas lights we typically have everyone’s lights down by the end of January with the exception of the year of “Snowmageddon”. In order to do this we will be removing lights systematically throughout the valley in a geographical order. You do not need to call us to schedule your take down and we will not be calling ahead to schedule your removal. We appreciate all of our clients cooperation, patience, and understanding as we work safely and quickly to get everyone’s lights down.

As a reminder our schedule relies heavily on the weather and the conditions on roofs and in gutters. When roofs and gutters are frozen it is far better to wait for a slight warming for two reasons: first, it keeps our crews safe, and second, in icy conditions lights and clips are frozen into gutters and easily break. We watch the weather and temperature very closely and take it day by day. Thank you!
