Winter is here!

Merry CHRISTmas and Happy New Year!

I apologize for my infrequent updates; I’m new to the whole blogging/website thing ;)!  I will attempt to be more organized in the coming year.

At this time of year you should have aerated and overseeded your yard is Sept./Oct., applied a started fertilizer for growth and color, and done a final prune and shaping of your existing landscape.

Be looking forward to applying a pre-emergent with fertilizer in mid-February/mid-March to suppress weeds, prepping beds to receive mulch, and installing mulch.

Blessings to you all in the past and upcoming year!  May you feel the Lord’s presence in your life.

Spring has arrived!

Well, spring has sprung up in the Richmond/Mechanicsville area.  Flowers are blooming, grass is growing, and colder days are now behind us!  As we come out of winter you should be prepping your beds to receive mulch, edging beds, and doing your first spring pruning on your shrubs.  Lawns should receive one if not two applications of fertilizer with pre-emergent to suppress crab grass and retard weedy growth.  The planting beds should be tidied up and two to three inches of mulch maintained to retard weed growth and retain moisture of the plants, which will be vital come July/August, for the survivability of your shrubbery and landscape.  Call, contact, or leave a comment for any personal estimates needed on your property or for referrals to some of the companies that assist me in “raising the standard in lawn care”.  Thank you for stopping by to check us out.  Looking forward to serving you in the future!

Hey there Y’all just a note concerning the long-standing drought.  It is still possible to get or be infected with fungus diseases such as brown patch, leaf spot ect…. Rain after dark and or cultural watering practices can still become favorable to promote the infestation.  If you observe “dry” patches in your turf be sure to pick up and examine the leaf blade itself.  The blade of grass will be shriveled and stick like in appearance if it is drought conversely if it is diseased it will be normal size in diameter and have brownish-yellow spots on the blade and appear necrotic.  Feel free to leave a comment for ways to address the cure and possible prevention.  Thanks for allowing this blog to assist you in stewarding your property.

Welcome to Cross Cuts Ltd. website!  The hope of this site is to give you information pertaining to your yard and its needs.  I have been in the lawn care industry for 25 years and have enjoyed every moment!  Since I was a teen during summer break, to a young adult needing extra money in college, to a father of many, lawn care has been my love.  Only 10 years ago this company did not exist, but thanks to the Lord Jesus I was able to take my first step into business ownership in 2000.  Now this website is just another step in expanding the business the Lord’s blessed me with.  May you and your yard be blessed and lushly green! 🙂

God Bless,

Scott Wassenberg
