March into spring with SKB Industries

In Atlanta spring is starting to, well, spring! As the temperatures begin to rise, we at SKB Industries are gearing up for the spring season and would like to remind you of some of our spring services.

  • Spring irrigation audit
  • Regular mowing
  • Pre and post-emergent weed control
  • Annual color installation

Irrigation audit:

Our irrigation crew performs an audit to ensure your system is working properly. We want to ensure that as temperatures increase your system is ready. Here’s how a commercial irrigation audit program works:

  • An irrigation water audit identifies any irrigation issues, for example, leaking valves, broken heads, and broken pipes.
  • Other benefits of an irrigation audit program are that it can improve irrigation efficiency, reduce water costs, lessen turf drought, and decrease the likelihood of runoff.

Mowing:

Spring means your lawn is growing so that’s when SKB starts its weekly mowing.

  • Using sound horticulture practices, SKB cuts no more than 1/3rd of the leaf blade at a time.
  • Cutting too short can weaken the grass. Weak turf is more susceptible to disease and weed outbreak.

Weed control:

Weeds are a part of any landscape but with SKB’s expertise you don’t have to worry about them.

  • We apply pre-emergent herbicide in spring and fall to prevent weeds from germinating.
  • We weekly monitor and treat any bed, turf, and crack weeds that may have sprouted.
  • Regular mowing, proper fertilization, and adequate irrigation can prevent weeds.

Annual color installation:

Spring is the best time to install color beds that prefer warmer temperatures.

  • As the pansies wane, our floriculture division is busy replacing them with spring annual flowers.
  • Our color services include selecting plant varieties, locations for additional beds, and preparation for installation.

SKB Industries is available for a no cost, no obligation estimate on our spring services for your property. Call us today at 770.564.2186 to learn more about how SKB can help you with your commercial landscaping spring needs!
