Now, in the month of September, there will be little change in temperatures with the exception of the Santa Ana Winds. Therefore we will need to practice applying"Syringe Cycles" (short periods of watering to plant material in the middle of the day) to help keep plant foliage cool and help replace water evaporation. Lawns will especially benefit from this watering and will also help prevent necrotic ring spots. If you manually water your lawn, add a mid-day watering to the areas that would benefit from the additional watering. If your lawn is watered by an automatic timer, most of them have an option for multiple watering days and times.
Simply create a new short watering cycle to each station that applies to the lawn and plant areas affected in addition to the normal watering settings. Lawn fertilizer should consist of slow-release nitrogen. September is an optimal time of the year to perform weed control, both pre & post-emergence. After weeds have been addressed, planting of the seed for repairs or new lawns can be performing. After lawns have been planted, we can embellish our landscape with trees, bedding plants, and a vegetable garden. Here are a few plant suggestions for the month of September: Trees; Crape Myrtle, Bedding plants; Mums & Vegetable gardens; beets, radishes & leaf lettuce. In addition, house plants should be brought indoors.
As Always, If You Have Any Questions or Concerns, Feel Free to Contact Us at Any Time. We Will Be Glad to Help You.
Have a Wonderful September!
"I wanted to take a moment to thank you for the professionalism you and your crew have provided for us since 2001. A yard that stood out in our neighborhood is what brought our business to you. We watched as you converted that yard from what could only be described as a dead wasteland to one of the nicest looking yards in the neighborhood.
Since you have cared for our yard it has been one that also catches the attention of passerby's, who are quick to compliment on its beautiful appearance with its thick lush green lawn.
I have found you to be reliable, meticulous, dedicated and one with great work ethics. These qualities are rarely found today in the workforce. My thirty plus years in law enforcement have caused me to be a little more cautious in trusting individuals around my property, than most homeowners. You on the other hand, have earned both my wife's and my total trust to the point where we rely on you to gain access and secure our property, when your work is completed, while we are not at home. Your pleasant and friendly attitude has resulted in me referring to you as not only our gardener but more importantly, as a friend."

"We live in Maryland and own a house in San Diego. This April, as we were preparing to turnover tenants we contacted Curt's Land Patrol to inspect the property and make recommendations to upgrade the landscaping in order to increase "curb appeal". Curtis examined the property, alerted up to the lack of maintenance, and came up with a plan for preparing the lot for planting. When we arrived in California six weeks later, the soil had been rototilled, smoothed and was ready for planting we met with Curtis and discusses our ideas and goals. He took that information and came back with a sequential plan for restoring and upgrading the landscaping with an eye toward ease of maintenance. and water conservation. We melded his plan with our vision. He recommended plants specifically for our situation and had pictures to help visualize them.
He put the plan in to action and has kept us up to date on the progress with email reports and text pictures of the yard as the work progressed. We have also received pictures and reports from impressed neighbors as the yard literally blossomed. He is easy to work with, professional and has our wholehearted recommendation."
"I hired Curtis to redo my front yard and put in rock. He was very professional and he finished the job on time with beautiful results. "
"I would highly recommend using Curtis for your landscaping needs. He is very positive, honest and takes care of you immediately. He is a person who has a great attitude and enjoys his work."

Curtis and his team are very professional, very trust worthy, and their work is exceptional. I have gone through quite a few gardeners and Curtis exceeds them all. His pricing is very reasonable and fair. I highly recommend using Curtis and his team they will not disappoint you.
