The Woodlands Pool Company Summer 2017 Update

The Woodlands Pool Service - June 2017 Newsletter

As summertime heat races into full swing in our area, your backyard pools are getting more and more activity.  One Sourcecommits to keeping them in beautiful, pristine and safe working condition.  However, there are important tips to remember between your weekly technician visits.  Maintaining a constant water level is of utmost importance.  If the level is TOO low there won’t be enough water to safely run your pool cleaner or pump.  This can quickly burn up your equipment.  If it is TOO high, your skimmers will not function properly and dirt and debris will won’t circulate into the skimmer.  The proper level is about 1” above the bottom of the skimmer tile.   One Sourcehighly recommends automatic water levelers that can easily be installed for a minimum charge. Contact One Source to schedule an installation.

It’s Hot!  With temperatures in the triple digits many afternoons, controlling your lawn watering is a challenge.  Too little water will allow the sun to burn your yard.  And over watering opens your yard up to chinch bugs, sod webworms, and other fungi.  Keep in mind, there is no wrong time to aerate your lawn.  This allows the air and the water to go deeper into the soil.  If something in your yard looks wrong, One Source is a phone call away. Contact the office for any needs including a customized landscape or hardscape renovation rendering. Call Robin to schedule your appointment.

The heat is on!  It seems like the temperatures soared overnight.  With the heat & hurricane potential, Houston summer weather can keep us hopping.  Whether maintaining proper drainage for storms or trying to keep plants alive in the boiling heat, we need to be vigilant.  Making sure our yards have proper drainage can save a lot of work and money later.  Having a rain sensor installed can save you from over-watering if you are out of town or forget to turn off the system when it rains.   As the saying goes, “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure."  During the summer months, we generally advise setting your control boxes at 10 minutes for sprays and 30 minutes for rotors, 3 days/ wk.  Of course, this can vary according to the way your yard is situated.  If you have any questions or would like more advice for keeping your yard looking healthy, feel free to callRobin!  She would love to talk with you.  Stay hydrated & keep your plants watered as well.  Happy dog days of summer!!!

Early Spring Landscaping Tips

The Woodlands, Texas Landscaping

Our landscape team produces dramatic results as evidenced by these before & after pictures. Spring has come early in the Houston area.  And after the year that we’ve had that comes as no surprise!  Your heavy pruning should be done by now.  Beginning now and through the summer, light pruning is recommended.  Azalea can be pruned after the blooms drop.  This is the perfect time to consider the hardy Summer color you desire to brighten up your yard during the hot months.  In regard to your turf, it should have been scalped by now.

Houston Mowing Heights 

Our experts also recommend raising your mowers to these heights to help withstand the heat, St. Augustine @ 2.5-3” and Zoysia @ 1.5-2.5” respectively.  Friendly reminder…make sure to inspect your irrigation systems to ensure they are operating properly.  This will help protect delicate grass and flowers from the increasingly hot sun. Contact the office for any needs including a customized landscape renovation rendering.  Call Robin to schedule your appointment.

Landscaping Spring Cleanup Tips For The Woodlands, Texas

Landscaping Spring, Texas

Landscaping The Woodlands, Tx

Wow! What a freeze, BRRRR.  Aside from pipes being damaged, a lot of the plant material that rarely freezes is laying sad and brown on the ground.  As tempting as it is to go out there and cut off the unsightly portions, please let them remain a bit longer.  It is still early in our "winter," and if we have another major freeze the depleted plant could actually be killed.  If you have cut your plants back, remember to cover them well should we have another freeze.  Allow several more weeks before beginning spring landscaping The Woodlands cleanup.

Roses and crepe myrtles are safe for their yearly haircut because they are dormant. When the weather begins to consistently feel warm, you'll begin to see weeds.  Consider mulching as a weed barrier. Call Robin to schedule your landscape appointment.
