September came in with some big bangs!

Lightning, thunder, massive rain storms, floods, temperatures close to 100 degrees. You would think that we were in July instead of September. I think that calendar must be confused, how about ya’ll? Hopefully the cooler weather will be here to stay soon and we can enjoy some of my favorite time of the year.

September and October are important times of the year for landscapes. It is the time to do soil samples, put out dormancy fertilizer (it feeds your grass through the winter to help it green up nicely in the summer) overseed with fescue and winter rye (which keeps your Bermuda grass green all winter long), it is also time to fertilize the shrubs and plant flowers.

Do you have your list of things that need to be accomplished in your landscape? You can always call the office and we can tell you if they are going to be done and when they will be done.

We sent out a sales order form last month for annuals. If you have not sent your sheet in please do so as the last date for me to order them will be October 1st. You can either fax, email, mail with your check, or call the order in. We are going to have a great selection of plants, everything from panolas and pansies to cabbages and kales. It is also time to start thinking about bulbs. Did you know that October and November are the best time to plant Tulips, Daffodils, Hyacinth and Crocus. Those are on the order sheet from last month as well. We are attaching another order form with the newsletter here, just in case.

home_garden_expoHave you ever wanted to go through a trailer and look at patios and feel the products? We will have a 53’ trailer filled with Belgard Hardscape exhibits at the Home and Garden Lifestyle Expo at the Elks Lodge on Sept 26, 27th and 28tyh. Come out and see what goodies we will be giving away!

Save the date:
Our annual barbeque is going to be November 7th.

If you have never come please try to join us this year.  Last year we had around 200 people come out and served over 250 pounds of mine and Lewis’ special homemade BBQ.

Finally there will be some changes made after the first of the year.  The Moore County Landfill is going to start charging for debris in January.  This additional cost is going to impact everyone, homeowners & HOA’s.

Each customer can either handle the debris removal themselves or we can dispose of debris, however if we take care of disposal, there will be an additional charge.  Once we find out the rate we will let everyone know. Please call us if you have questions.

Thank you always for being great customers!
Dana, Lewis & The Green Dreams Team
