You would be amazed at how much it will benefit the overall function and aesthetics of your home! For further reading, go to www.statejournal.com under the May 17 archives.

Whether you are looking to add a little extra lighting to the exterior of your home for safety or just add visual interest at night, low voltage landscape lighting can really make a difference. When it comes to choosing fixtures, though, you have two choices: traditional halogen bulbs or the newer L.E.D. technology. Light emitting diodes, or L.E.D.’s as they are more commonly known, have many benefits over their halogen counterparts. L.E.D. fixtures use less energy while also having a much longer lifespan than halogen fixtures. A typical L.E.D. fixture can last well over 40,000 hours, at which point, they will begin to dim rather than burn out. In addition to the lower energy requirements, smaller wire and transformers can be used. This helps to offset the higher initial installation cost of the L.E.D. fixtures, which is about twice that of traditional halogen fixtures. Over time though, the energy savings and time spent changing bulbs will save you money, while also doing your part to be green and lower energy consumption.

We don't start until Mother Nature starts.
Biafore Landscape Development wants to inform you about spring weather and your grass. Growth of grass is determined by soil temperature and soil temperature is determined by the type of precipitation we get in the spring. This spring we are experiencing sporadic snow falls that are keeping the soil temperatures low (around 35-40 degrees) and unfavorable for grass growth. Last year at this time, the grass was growing and the soil temperatures were above 55 degrees. We were out putting down the pre-emergent fertilizer to prevent crabgrass germination because the environmental conditions were favorable. This year the soil temperatures are still at 35-40 degrees, making it unfavorable growing conditions for the grass, and therefore we have not started any of our fertilization programs. We believe in not forcing Mother Nature to start working when she is not ready. We also believe in providing our customers with the best service, best products, and to get the best results out of the best products they need to be applied at the correct time. We will start our fertilization program soon (When Mother Nature says it is OK) and are excited to service your lawn this year.
