Spring clean ups are something most of our lawn care customers in the area do or pay to have done. These clean ups can range from light raking and blowing to deep thatching. Unfortunately, if a spring clean-up is done incorrectly, it can do a lot of damage to turfgrass and make the lawn look horrible until it recovers. Here is a short list of dos and don’ts and remember, if you have any questions, give us a call at (201) 891-4131 or (845) 986-8836 The Do's of Spring Clean Ups
Voles: The Grass Eating Rodents, You Didn't Know Existed!
Vole Basics Meet the Vole. According to experts there are over 100 species living in North America, Europe and Asia. There are 23 species in the US alone. They live about 3-6 months, weigh approximately 2 oz and grow to be 4-9” long, including the tail. They make their homes in complex burrow systems made up of tunnels and surface runways where adult and young live together in nests made of dry grass. In the winter, they may have temporary above ground nests in the deep snow.
