June Tips

Shane's Spot: Be ready for Hurricane season!

June not only means we are almost half way through the year, it also means higher temperatures and hurricane season! It is important to be prepared for any potential storms, so make sure to inspect your trees, palms and other plants that may need to be pruned. Take care of this before any adverse weather arrives so that you have time to prepare adequately! 

As always, remember to install your sod green side up!
