Get Ahead Of Mosquito’s in Warsaw, IN & Syracuse, IN

Recently in the news, it came out that Indiana, especially Warsaw, IN and Syracuse, IN, could expect to see more mosquitoes and ticks earlier than normal for the spring and summer of 2017.  A Purdue University entomology professor, indicated that due to the mild winter in northern Indiana, especially around the Lakes areas like Warsaw, Winona Lake, and Syracuse, coupled with a wet spring could mean that these insects will be out early and will be prolific.  While this isn’t the news we want to hear, WLM, Inc. can help you get your backyard back from those mosquitoes so that you can enjoy your outdoor living space with family and friends.

It’s April in Warsaw, IN & Syracuse, IN and it’s time to think about your lawn fertilization needs.  Is your lawn full of weeds and crabgrass?  Is your grass just not as green as you would like it to be?  We can help.

Here are some facts about lawns that people find interesting:

  • Lawns trap more than 12 million tons of dust and dirt annually.
  • Turfgrass, like that found in your Warsaw & Syracuse lawns, is much cooler than asphalt or concrete and acts as an air conditioner for surrounding areas.  Your Warsaw lawn could be 22 degrees cooler that your driveway.
  • Healthy grass has many miles of roots that hold your soil and filter rain water.
  • A 50×50 ft. lawn in Warsaw, IN or Syracuse, IN releases enough oxygen for a family of four, while absorbing carbon dioxide and other nitrates.

Eco Friendly Brick Pavers in Winona Lake, IN and the Village of Winona

Eco Friendly Brick Pavers in Winona Lake, IN

Eco Friendly Brick Pavers can provide solutions to many problems that homeowners in Warsaw, Winona Lake, Syracuse & Culver have especially if they live on one of our many lakes.  Have a low lying parking area that holds water?  Even if it’s not a low area, these Turfstone Brick Pavers make a great parking area that eliminates water run off.

This project was installed in the Village of Winona in beautiful Winona Lake, IN.  The goal of this project was to create additional parking for guests visiting the Village.

This eco friendly paving system is installed on a compact base of limestone that allows the water falling from the sky to drain freely and be reclaimed back into the existing soils underneath.  The open cores of the brick are filled with soil and then planted with a special blend of grass seed.  After a few weeks, you can see germination of the grass and within a couple months you can park cars on the surface.

Cores are filled with soils and planted with grass seed.

This area now provides parking for about 15-20 cars or trucks for visitors in the Village of Winona.  We also installed some landscape plantings to help soften the edges of the parking area.  Thank you to the Village of Winona, the Town of Winona Lake, and all the shops in the Village!  We appreciate the opportunity to help create a lasting space that will help with overflow parking and the environment.

Fall Fertilization Is Most Important For Your Warsaw & Syracuse Lawn

The final application of the season is the most important if you want to have a nice looking lawn next spring for your Warsaw, IN and Syracuse, IN lawns.  The winterizer application is a quick release fertilizer that is designed to be absorbed quickly into the root system of the plant so that it has plenty of food next spring when the lawn wakes up.  Why is this so important?  Weeds in your lawn wake up earlier than your grass or lawn.  If the weeds wake up sooner and start germinating and growing before the lawn and become stronger, they will begin to take over the healthy lawn and create problems for your grass.  When your lawn is weak, disease and weeds will begin to take over.  There isn’t an instant gratification after applying the final round of fertilizer like instant greening of the lawn, but it is vitally important for your lawns in Warsaw, Syracuse, Winona Lake, Ft. Wayne, Columbia City, Culver, and North Webster.
