Invasive Species Warning!

Emerald Ash Borer

The symptoms an ash tree shows when it is infested with emerald ash borer are similar to symptoms caused by other ash pests or diseases. For example, crown dieback can occur due to EAB damage, but can also be the result of drought stress, soil compaction or verticillium wilt, just to name a few. This insect is killing our ash trees.

Liberty Irrigation

News Release – December 2015

Thank you for your lawn and landscape maintenance service business over the last many years. We appreciate our loyal customers and are always looking for better and the best ways to service your needs!

Over the past 5 years, we have increasingly heard from you, our customers, of your desire for a more accessible and reliable lawn sprinkler service company. I must admit that I have found it challenging to get our customers’ sprinkler system needs handled in a prompt, reasonable, and professional manner. This has been very frustrating for all of us. We were forced to do some sprinkler work for our customers even though we never truly focused on that particular service.

I do not ask much from the vendors I refer to our customers, i.e. irrigation companies, other than to do what they say they are going to do. Over the past 5+ year, I have heard every excuse from my frustrated customers regarding irrigation companies such as not getting returned phone calls, emails, texts, missed appointments, invoicing delays, etc. For those reasons and the fact that I already have Don Holmes, an experienced lawn sprinkler technician, on staff has lead me to make the customer service prompted decision to expand our service division. I am excited to introduce to you:

Liberty Irrigation, Inc. 
111 N 56th Street – Suite #301
Lincoln NE 68504
(office) 402-466-0160
(cellular, Don Holmes) 402-440-7805

This new service we are offering is going to be singularly focused on servicing our customers’ sprinkler system maintenance needs. We will not be doing sprinkler installations, so you will never hear the excuse from us that you will have to wait for service until we are done with a “big project”. I have heard that comment as an excuse way too many times recently, and I’m sure you have as well. Our customers are Liberty Irrigation’s “big project”.

Our sprinkler technician, Don Holmes, has been servicing lawn irrigation systems for over 25 years and is very well known throughout our community and industry as reliable, knowledgeable, prompt and courteous lawn care professional. He is very excited about the opportunity to assist our lawn care customers with your sprinkler system maintenance needs full time.

I will be sending you more information outlining our new service soon.

Thank you again for your business and Merry Christmas!

Sirococcus Shoot Blight

In 2012, we saw a huge increase in needle blight on spruce trees. Here is the latest information on spruce tree blight:

Sirococcus shoot blight of spruce causes branch tips to turn brown and needles to drop off leaving infected brach tips bare. One year old growth may also turn reddish brown and cast needles. Small black fruiting bodies can be seen on infected shoots. To manage this disease on young trees, apply chlorothalonil in May, when new shoots are one half to two inches long, and repeat the application 3-4 weeks later.

Spring Start Up

It’s about that time again!

We will be starting our first round of lawn treatments in late March. Please, have your yard cleaned up prior to this time. If you need assistance, please, contact us.

This spring, we will be using two applications of Pentamethalin for our pre-emergent. This product has been proven to be the best for preventing crabgrass and foxtail in Nebraska. Several seasons ago, we changed our broadleaf weed control product to Q4, which gives us extra control for crabgrass, ground ivy, nut sedge and spurge. We always offer the highest quality products and services available.

We will use Merit grub control exclusively again in 2013 to give longer control against these and most other insects feeding on the turf. Grub worm has been a serious problem in Nebraska for a few years, but our “Merit” control works great in nullifying this pest along with sod webworm and cutworm.

Our program will control broad leaf weeds and most insects, and provide enough nutrients for the turf throughout the long growing season without promoting excess growth.

The weather forecast for this year is hot again, but wetter. This forecast, if true, will help keep us reasonable water bills.

I am hoping gasoline prices remain somewhat reasonable throughout 2013. Unlike other companies, we have never charged a gasoline surcharge and hope to never have to do so in the future.

Check out our website at www.LibertyLawn.biz. It is full of useful information on many subjects. The site will help us provide even greater service to our prized possessions – you, our customers.

Please, contact us if you require help starting or repairing your sprinkler system.

In the event you will not require our services for the upcoming year, please send written notification to the office. If we do not receive a cancellation request, we will continue our services as usual.

Thank you for your business.

See you soon!
