One Source Maintains Pools
James and his capable crew continue to excel at your weekly pool maintenance. We are beginning to enjoy longer days and warmer water so your pools will begin to see more usage, and therefore require more attention in certain areas. We encourage you to communicate with your technicians for specific pool needs. Keep in mind we recommend filter cleans every six months. If you would like us to put you on a recurring schedule, please contact the office.

As we begin to enjoy our most beautiful season in the Houston area, household pests often become less of an issue. However, as we enjoy more time outside, outdoor annoyances such as bees, ants and the dreaded MOSQUITO need to be addressed! More than a mere annoyance mosquitoes can be deadly, carrying more and more diseases each year. Over 1,000 Americans experience serious illness or death as a result of a mosquito bite every year. One Source is proud to offer full service mosquito misting system installation and maintenance as part of our The Woodlands Pest Control division. These high-tech devices are very effective & affordable. Call the office for more information and a free quote. Contact One Source and Steve Luckerman will be happy to discuss any pest nuisance.
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.
Winter in Texas brings highly variable weather! As we're typically only in your yard on a monthly basis, please keep a close eye on your lawn and shrubs and feel free to call the office with concerns. Our goal at One Source is to maintain your grounds through the winter, as we look forward to a vibrant yard in the spring.
Should you suspect that your lawn has brown patch, call the office as soon as possible. We are beginning to schedule aeration treatments, highly recommended to allow better uptake of applied nutrients to your turf and plants. Take time to discuss this beneficial application with your technician and he will be happy to get you on the schedule.
Our One Source pool division continues to expand and develop! While our team proudly is your The Woodlands pool service on a weekly basis, our licensed technicians are actively remodeling several pools for clients as well. Stay tuned as we share progress photos from these projects.
James & John recently had the opportunity visit San Antonio for the Southwest Pool & Spa Show. John was a featured speaker and James attended the sessions and connected with industry leaders. Providing you with the most informed and educated pool technicians is our goal. Our team at One Source is always available to offer advice & assistance to ensure your pool remains in pristine working condition.
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.
The Woodlands Termites
One Source is proud to announce that we're now performing wood destroying insect reports. Wood destroying insects include termites, carpenter ants, and various wood boring beetles. The insects that cause the most damage in our area are termites and carpenter ants. Termites alone cause over $2 BILLION worth of damage in the US every year!!! Texas is considered a heavy termite infestation area. If selling your home is in the near future, ensure your selling process doesn't bog down with an expensive termite treatment.
REMINDER: As you begin to consider pruning trees when the weather gets warmer, it's wise to leave at least five feet between your home and your tree. Pests and rodents can travel your trees to your homes easily if given the opportunity. The distance helps deter and make that transfer more difficult. Contact One Source and Steve Luckerman will be happy to discuss any pest nuisance. The Woodlands termite inspections are scheduling now!
In January, Robin recommends that you begin to cut back your crepe myrtles and rose bushes to promote the healthiest looking trees and bushes in the Springtime. We also would like to remind you that One Source has experienced technicians to assist you with your landscape lighting needs. Because the days are currently shorter, this is the perfect time to be aware of those current needs or possible upgrades. You may be surprised what a beautiful enhancement landscape lighting makes in the appearance of your home.
Continue to be aware of your lawn's water needs. Should we be without rain for an extended period and the weather warms, consider watering in moderation. In the event of a freeze advisory, please be certain to run your irrigation to fortify your plants and flowers. It takes longer for well-watered plants to freeze. After watering, then cover all the plants and flowers that are susceptible to freeze damage. As always, One Source is available to answer questions and be of assistance. We encourage you to contact Robin for any landscape & irrigation consultation.
