Mowing Alone Won't Keep Your Lawn Looking Great

Mowing Alone Won't Keep Your Lawn Looking Great

Many people think that all they need to do to manage the appearance of their lawns is to routinely mow the grass. While this is important and vital to your lawn, there are other tasks required for your lawn to look green and lush during the growing season.

At Beautiful Blooms, LLC, we recommend several steps for a healthy lawn. Learn about what it takes to create a gorgeous lawn in Brookfield, Elm Grove, Pewaukee, Wauwatosa, and nearby areas of Wisconsin.


Fertilization treatments feed your lawn with key nutrients.

Without fertilizer, your grass will not get the nutrients needed to strengthen itself. We offer both conventional and natural fertilizer programs so you can choose which one best suits you and your property. No matter which program you choose, we'll apply five treatments of fertilizer or soil conditioner throughout the year.


Weed control applications eliminate common weeds from your lawn and landscaping.

To keep common weeds from invading your lawn and landscape, it's also important to put down weed control applications in the spring. We use a pre-emergent weed control treatment that eliminates broadleaf weeds and others such as:

  • Crabgrass

  • Violets

How to Protect Your Landscaping from Winter Weather

How to Protect Your Landscaping from Winter Weather

When winter weather rolls around, it can get bitterly cold in Brookfield, Elm Grove, WI, and the surrounding areas. Plants native to our area are usually able to go dormant during the winter months, but sometimes they need extra protection to endure the freezing weather.

Here are some ways we recommend protecting your landscape plants, trees, and shrubs from the cold weather and why you need to protect them in the areas of Brookfield, Elm Grove, Wauwatosa, Pewaukee, and surrounding Wisconsin cities.


Why You Need to Protect Plants from Freezing Weather

It’s not easy for anything living to survive in the bitter cold. Animals huddle together for warmth and plants may also need a bit of a boost to make it through the long winter months. Additionally, animals may be seeking out food sources and when deer or rabbits come into your yard to eat your plants, this can kill them. At Beautiful Blooms, LLC, we have devised several ways to help your plants make it through the winter.


How We Protect Plants, Trees, & Shrubs from Snow & Ice

Snow covers a lawn and landscaping in Wauwatosa, WI.

One method to protect plants from winter weather is called wilt pruf. This is an anti-desiccant that we apply to select types of evergreen plants. Wilt pruf is made from pine sap and helps to prevent winter windburn of your trees and plants.

Our professional crews may also choose to use burlap wrapping, especially if you have plants that are close to the street or other areas where winter wind or salt spray can be thrown ...

Reasons Fall Yard Cleanups Benefit Your Lawn

Reasons Fall Yard Cleanups Benefit Your Lawn

Regular lawn maintenance is vital to a healthy lawn year-round. Did you know that seasonal cleanups can be just as important for your lawn’s health? Fall yard cleanups are important to prepare your lawn for the upcoming winter months and provide it with the nutrients it needs to grow back strong and full in spring.

A proper fall yard cleanup removes leaves from your yard, makes space for new growth in the spring, and rids your yard of dangerous pests and diseases. Here are some reasons fall yard cleanups benefit your lawn in Brookfield, Elm Grove, Wauwatosa, Pewaukee, and the surrounding areas of WI.


Fall yard cleanup maintains healthy new growth and removes pests and diseases in Brookfield, Elm Grove.

Cleaning Your Yard Prepares it for Winter

Wintertime brings with it cold, wet weather and if not prepared, your lawn can sustain some pretty harsh damage. Failing to properly clean up your yard before the winter hits leaves your lawn in a weakened state and susceptible to damage from the cold, pests, diseases, and more. Leaf clutter suffocates your lawn, robbing it of sunlight and air essential for its growth. Removing leaf clutter and other debris from your yard ensures it’s in the best shape possible before the cold winter months hit.


Cleanups Allow New Grass to Grow in Spring

When debris and leaf clutter create a thick carpet on top of your lawn, it crushes your grass and prevents new growth from popping up when spring returns. Allowing old debris, organic matter, and leaf buildup to linger in your yard smothers your lawn and...

Lawn Care Step 3, 2013

Lawn Care Step 3, 2013

Fertilizer and weed control application step #3

The third step of the fertilizer and weed control program will be starting next week.  For most lawns, due to the amount of natural rainfall that we have experienced, the grass is still actively growing.  As long as the lawn is growing and not showing signs of going dormant then this application is important and will be made. 

IF by the time we come to your property to make this application the weather pattern has changed significantly (too hot, or too dry) we may adjust or skip the amount of fertilizer applied.  Mike and Justin will only apply product to your lawn if it is the right thing to do—based on current and forecasted conditions, not just because your name is on the list.

Fabric (or plastic) has no place under your mulch!

Fabric (or plastic) has no place under your mulch!

Why landscape fabric is not necessary in your mulch beds

When using mulch in your landscape, there is no need for the use of artificial weed barrier such as plastic or landscape fabric. These materials do not work and are not weed barriers. They are only necessary under stone. That is to prevent the soil from mixing with the stone. When mulch is maintained at an even depth between two and four inches it will properly serve as a weed barrier. Also, the mulch will naturally break down and incorporate with the soil through matters such as earthworms, microorganisms, and other insects. This adds nutrients and organic material to your plants and the surrounding soil which is very important to sustaining the health of your landscape.
 
In many cases when artificial material is used under mulch you can clearly see a night and day difference between what is above the plastic and what is below. The material above the plastic is soft, rich, dark, and full of nutrients. The soil below is hard and grey with virtually no nutrients. It looks as if it is suffocated. It also provides no protection against weeds proven by the fact that we see weeds everyday growing through thick layers of concrete and blacktop on commercial property. In the event that weeds do occur in your mulch they are much easier to pick out and maintain when there is not a layer of thick plastic holding them in the ground.
