Nothing is more frustrating than spending hours – and money – on your lawn and landscaping, only to have it ruined by a noxious weed or plant pest. Invasive species of plants grow super-fast, essentially choking out the plants you want to keep.
We love our animals, whether they are our pets or livestock, and want to keep them safe while we spray. That’s why it’s important to take precautions when applying herbicides and insecticides around your property.

If you’ve accidentally gotten into poison ivy once, once is enough. This little plant’s oils, called urushiol, cause painful, itchy rashes that can last one to three weeks.

You love your lawn, but don’t have the time to perform the maintenance tasks that go along with it. A lawn service can help you out in that department, but a word of caution, not every company is the same.
Water and gardening go hand-in-hand. Water is necessary to produce lush, green lawns and big, beautiful blooms. When it comes to herbicide and insecticide applications, water can be both friend or foe as some products require water to activate and others need dry conditions to be effective.
Every year it’s the same thing – you tell yourself, your spouse and your neighbor that you’re going to get your lawn in tip-top condition – but you end up with a subpar showpiece. Drought, weeds and insects can quickly turn a healthy and vibrant lawn into one in need of resuscitation. Here are five […]
There’s a Chinese proverb that states, “If you want to be happy for a lifetime, be a gardener.” We think this statement is absolutely spot on. There’s nothing quite as satisfying as getting your hands in dirt and growing something beautiful or delicious from it. But, we do recognize that not everyone thinks the same […]
The hot, dry weather that engulfs the U.S. every summer can be downright brutal on your lawn; making it look un-kept and just plain haggard. But, you don’t have to fight the heat – use Mayberry Grass Seed instead.
With the recent introduction of RM18 to our herbicide family, we’ve had a lot of people asking what makes it so special–and what makes it so different from the other effective weed-killers we offer, namely RM43.
I saw another dandelion yesterday. That makes 123 for the year, and it’s April.
