Happy Holidays from Boulder Landscape!

Harrison Woytko

Happy Holidays from Boulder Landscape! Why is it that the holiday season always manages to sneak up on us and before we know it, it’s Christmas Eve?

 

The holiday season means only one thing here in Northeastern PA and that is winter is right around the corner! We know, we are still in denial that the first day of winter is just a few short weeks away, but sadly it’s time to put the patio furniture away and break out the snow shovels. Although snow can be a burden we do have to admit it does have the ability to turn an outdoor landscape into a beautiful and picturesque winter wonderland.

 

The Farmer’s Almanac is predicting this winter to be filled with frigid cold temperatures and above average snowfall for our area. Here are a few tips from us to help you prepare for winter and protect your landscape.

1.      Put those outdoor hoses away! Make sure to turn your outdoor water spigots off from inside.

2.      Tie up any loose or low hanging fragile branches within your landscape shrubbery. A heavy snow or cold wind could cause branches to break.

3.      Winterize your outdoor power equipment. Drain fuel lines and wipe down metal parts with an oily cloth to prevent rust.

4.      When the snow & ice begin to accumulate, use calcium chloride instead of rock salt on your paver areas.

5.      Think about your outdoor landscape jobs NOW! The winter season is a great time to plan and prepare for spring landscaping projects.

 

With 2017 quickly approaching, we would like to thank you for being a part of a great 2016 season with us! The entire team at Boulder Landscape is incredibly thankful and appreciative and we are looking forward to another year with you.

 

This holiday season we encourage you to spend time with your family and friends, eat a Christmas cookie or two, and always keep in mind that Spring is right around the corner…five months to be exact, not that we are counting or anything.

 

Cheers & Happy Holidays!

 

 

Happy National Dog Day

Harrison Woytko



Happy National Dog Day from Boulder Landscape! 
Dogs play such an important role in people's lives. They are always incredibly happy to see us, faithfully never seem to let us down, and appreciate any attention that we give them. Lily, our golden retriever, greets our staff every morning with a warm welcome of her signature "happy bark" before sending us off to start our day. She is often found hanging out in our office waiting to be petted, jumping in any one of our Boulder trucks in hopes of being taken for a ride, or soaking up the sun on one of the beautiful patios that we created. 


There are currently 360 different types of dog breeds in the world. In the year 2015, the number 1 dog breed in America was the Labrador Retriever, followed by the German Shepard and then the Golden Retriever. If you're like us, we do everything and anything to keep our dog safe, happy, and healthy! We strongly monitor what Lily eats and have done our research of what is good for her and what is not, even when it comes to plants. There are many plants that are toxic for our furry friends. Here are just a few common plants that are toxic, according to the ASPCA:

Holly
Crabapple
Azalaea
Boxwoods
Mums
Yew
Rhodendron
Hosta



If your dog enjoys your landscape that we have created, please send us some pictures! We would love to see that our hard work, creativity, and passion can not only be admired and appreciated by our clients, but their dogs as well. Also, when finished reading this, make sure to give your a dog a treat (or two) on us...they deserve it! 




 

Happy 4th of July Weekend!

School is officially out and summer 2016 has begun! Isn't it beautiful to watch the seasons change? The grass is greener, the sky has become the perfect shade of blue, and plants & flowers of all shapes, sizes, and colors are happy to be in full bloom.

Boulder Landscape LLC is also happy to be taking full part of the busy season. We have been actively wrapping up new projects and doing our best to beautify outdoor living spaces, all the while desperately trying to avoid that dreaded farmer's tan. Ask us how that's going...

Fourth of July weekend is right around the corner! (We know, we can't believe it either). This holiday weekend is another great opportunity for you to enjoy the sunny weather with friends, catch some lightning bugs with the kids, enjoy a hot dog or three, and of course appreciate the beauty of your landscape. The weather men and women are predicting temperatures of high 80s and low 90s for the weekend, so not only will it be absolutely beautiful, but also very hot! Remember, your lawn needs to stay watered during these hot spells. Also, don't be afraid to keep the mower deck high.  A nice thick lawn is nice on bare feet during a hot day. However, while relaxing in the grass, if you notice it browning and small "holes" all over, give your lawn a dose of grub & insect control. The warm winter made grub season come early so take care of it before it really bugs you!

While mentioning the hot weather, be sure to check out the newly developed Ber-Vaughn Pool in Berwick. We were happy to build a paver walkway near the pool area in order to help complete this community pool. We encourage you and your family to check it out!

We wish you a safe and happy 4th of July Weekend!

Happy spring 2016 from Boulder Landscape!

Harrison Woytko

Happy spring 2016 from Boulder Landscape!  After one of the strongest El Nino on record, this March’s early flowers are bringing April snow showers!  Be sure not to spread grass seed on your driveway and salt on your lawn!

As the vitamin D kicks in from the sun’s rays, the snow removal and ice equipment is put away and we begin to bring out the summer landscaping tools and equipment.  There is a very important service we strongly believe in and is overlooked by many homeowners and commercial companies: preventative landscape maintenance.  We’ve spent these past few cold (or not so cold) months maintaining our gear to ensure it’s going to keep us working all summer long.   This principle of maintenance should be applied to your outdoor space as well.  Whether it is a small landscape bed, front lawn, or backyard outdoor living area, it is important to establish a proper maintenance program to keep those areas healthy and looking sharp.  A maintenance program is an effective and a wise investment.  

One key word that Boulder Landscape strives to enforce in our services is quality.  Quantity has had a tendency to impact quality in recent years. Our commitment to quality will never be overrun by quantity. 

We at Boulder Landscape will do our part making sure landscape beds and plants are well manicured, patio and wall projects are managed and installed properly, and our customers are treated with respect while ensuring them of the highest quality of workmanship.  We are excited about this early spring and hoping to ride the wave of excitement throughout the summer.  Come join us!

Seasons Greetings from Boulder Landscape

Harrison Woytko

It seems like yesterday we were watching the fireworks and mowing our lawns. Now we are watching the fire and wrapping our gifts while trying to stay warm.

During this time, please don't forget to keep your home safe. The Boulder Landscape Family wants to give you that little reminder to help ensure the winter season goes as smoothly as possible.  If you have a fireplace, take proper measures to ensure it is cleaned properly. This not only helps keep the fire burning, but can also help prevent a chimney fire. (It may help keep Santa's suit clean!)

We also want you to be safe as you walk out your door. When the snow starts to fall and the need for ice melt arises, know that it is best to use calcium chloride on your concrete paver walkway or driveway. It is our suggestion to use a less abrasive ice melt to keep your concrete pavers looking good for years to come. In case you're a pet lover, make sure to use a pet-friendly ice melt. Both sodium chloride (rock salt) and calcium chloride can be toxic to pets and can irritate their paws. 

As you enjoy the upcoming holiday season, give thanks to all the great things in your life such as family, friends, and remote car starters!  

Have a wonderful holiday season!

The Boulder Landscape family

Celebrate Labor Day

Harrison Woytko

It seems like just yesterday we were talking about spring, too much rain, and fireworks.  However, like every year, the leaves are just starting to change and the smell of fall greets you in the morning while the hot summer sun is still crisp during the afternoon.  The workdays now consist of irrigation, trimming shrubs, and dusting off the snowplows.  Yes, we said it, SNOWPLOWS!  Although it may only be the end of August, we all know what is lurking just around the corner.

While the days start to get shorter and the mornings a little brisk, we thank 10,000 New York City workers who marched in 1882 to create the first Labor Day.  What started as a day of unpaid marching by workers has now turned into a day of celebration and pool closing parties.  So once again as we prepare to gather with friends and family, let Boulder Landscape, LLC help make the day and the end of the summer season a little better.

As the food coma overtakes you after a long day of entertainment and over indulging, the unfortunate event occurs... a leaf falls from a tree and hits the lawn.  Then another.  You know in your mind that in a month or so the lawn is going to be filled with these beautiful, crunchy pests.  But this year, don't fret!  Our advice; mow over them!  Mulching leaves back into your lawn, with the help of a winter-prep fertilizer, assists in a nice green lawn come springtime.  Some also say it helps keep those pesky dandelions away! So take that deep breath at the end of your well-earned holiday and sleep in peace knowing that leaves will be no issue this year.

We at Boulder Landscape, LLC  would like to wish everyone a very happy Labor Day, along with a lucky sports season, a good school year, and maybe, just maybe, a mild winter.

Celebrate July 4th!

School is out, and the sounds of summer are finally here! Birds greet you as you taste your morning coffee, and crickets say goodnight after a long day's work. You've dreamed of these days while watching the snow fall all winter. Now, Boulder Landscape, LLC can help you enjoy these spectacular summer days a little more.

The perfect lawn is ready for the Fourth of July festivities, and the grill welcomes your guests. Our average rainfall this spring has turned the grass into a sea of green, and the added nitrogen that Mother Nature provided helps as a natural fertilizer and makes our lawns even happier.  However, the dreaded dry season is around the corner, so here is a tip we recommend.  Keep the grass a little higher than normal; this will help during a dry spell.  Also, if you have fertilized throughout the spring, mulch your grass back into the lawn rather than bag it.  This healthy grass will also help fertilize when the rain forgets to fall.

So while you and your guests add to the statistic of 150 million hot dogs eaten over the holiday, raise your glasses to a great lawn and the summer ahead.  You earned this holiday weekend!

And lastly, when the fireworks have fallen and the Tiki torches are out, and the only guests still up are the crickets, try this:

Count their chirps for 14 seconds, add 40, and you will get the current temperature in Fahrenheit.  

You will probably be more accurate than most weathermen...believe us, we know.

We are landscapers.

Celebrate our great country!
