Jamison Lawn Care Joins National GreenCare for Troops Movement to Support Local Military Families

Jamison Lawn Care of Jamison, PA joins ranks with Project EverGreen’s GreenCare for Troops program, a program designed to provide lawn care and landscape services to families of currently deployed military personnel as well as post 9/11 service-connected wounded/disabled veterans at no charge.

Jamison Lawn Care will participate with lawn care and landscape professionals from across the country that donate their services and time to ease the burden on military families or disabled and wounded veterans needing assistance with services.

“We’re proud to support the GreenCare for Troops program and lend a hand to help our local military families and veterans who already carry so much on their shoulders, the last thing they should be worrying about is fertilizing or mowing their lawn,” said Melanie of Jamison Lawn Care. “This is just one small way that we can say thank you for their dedication to country and military service.”

GreenCare for Troops was launched in 2007 and since its inception more than 10,000 military families and 4,000 lawn and landscape contractors have registered to receive or provide services.

“With more than 160,000 active-duty U.S. military personnel deployed in 150 countries across the globe, and significant numbers of wounded and disabled veterans, the need to support the families of those holding down the home front is significant,” says Cindy Code, executive director of Project EverGreen.

Jamison Lawn Care urges interested military families and qualifying disabled veterans to register for participation in the GreenCare for Troops program online at www.ProjectEverGreen.org or calling Ki Matsko at 888/611-2955 for additional information.

We spent HOW MUCH on a lawn mower?

HOW MUCH ON A LAWN MOWER!

 

Yes, we are purchased a new baby! The total price? $10,000… Yes ten thousand dollars for something that just cuts grass. BUT WHY?

 

  1. You deserve our best here in Bucks and Montgomery counties. Day in and day out, as a customer you should never settle for less and we are dedicated to providing that best. The best equipment means you get the best service through superior cut quality and efficiency. Speaking of efficiency…
  2. A higher efficiency means our costs actually go down. With saved labor costs by having a more efficient mower, we can provide even better value to our customers.
  3. We have a brand image to maintain. That includes what we look like on your property. Nobody wants a shirtless bum pushing a broken mower on their property for $50 a week. By having newer equipment and dress professionally, we look better, as do you for hiring us!
  4. So we can grow as a business. We truly appreciate how our customers back us throughout our success. With new equipment, we can expedite growth by being able to bid larger properties with more value and continue to satisfy our current contracts quickly.

Being the scrupulous business owners we are, Tom spent a good part of the winter watching and researching each mower available. As a landscape contractor, we are opened to a whole new world of manufacturers of mowers. Some include, but not limited to, John Deere, Scag, Wright, Hustler, Toro, Bobcat, Gravely, Kubota, Exmark. Now imagine about 20 different mower options per each. It took a lot of research!

 

Ok, Ok, tell us what the new mower is already!

 

Our new baby is a John Deere Z920M, with a 48 inch deck and mulch on demand. Ah, mulch on demand, let’s make a number 5 for why we purchased this.

 

  1. Mulch on Demand- That means the mower deck mulches the grass instead shoot it out the side discharge. Big deal, right!? Yes, it is! That lowers more time consuming tasks like leaf blowing the clippings off the pavement. As before, us saving time means better value for you!

Homemade Weed Sprayer

Although chemical sprayers for weeds are convenient, they may be doing harm to your precious lawns.

Chemical sprayers may do deadly harm to your lawn, pets and family. It is a risk you should not be taking. Please be sure to always read the chemicals that are hiding in your bottle of weed killer. Do research on those chemicals. If you find any that make you second guess that weed killer, ask yourself: Am I willing to take this risk? If not, then try our natural weed killer! Homemade!

We encourage our customers to check out natural weed control. You can make your own at home, for cheap! No really, we are serious. Keep on reading curious one!

Combine-

1/2 Gallon vinegar

1/2 Cup salt

2 Tablespoon dish soap

Pour salt into spray bottle. Then add vinegar over top. Lastly, top it off with dish soap and mix.

Spray in the morning and watch the weeds die!

There other homemade weed killer is, well, not really something you can make because it is something you already have. Your hands! Yes, that’s correct. Pulling weeds directly from the root are more powerful towards smaller weeds. After a rain day the weeds will be easier to yank out because of the more wet soil. We suggest that as soon as you spot the weeds, pull them, because this will prevent further germination from spreading. If you find that the weeds keep popping up, try digging them up at the root with a garden trowel. We are annoyed with weeds as much as you are. Your property won’t ever be 100% weedless but it will be pretty darn close if you tackle the weeds with persistence! Don’t let them germinate!

Please note this is only a couple ways to eliminate the weeds, Let us know how you get rid of those buggers! What do you suggest? We want to hear from you.
