Monsoon 2016 Season

Nature always has a funny way in surprising us. Last night, the wind took over our Southern AZ communities and took a toll on some homeowners yards. From trees uprooting, and tree branches snapping, to the shock on some of our customers faces as we skillfully removed branches off of cars, and neighbors yards. We can say for certain that the windy night gave us all something to talk about. We strive to be as prompt with our services, and fair in pricing when it comes to last minute disasters like a tree that seems to have eaten your car! We are always grateful to meet new customers, and to know that we are the first on the list to call for our current/past customers when the Monsoon strikes.

Cane down the shrub

There are many reasons as to why you may want to cane down your shrubs. Sometimes the winter time blues will hit our plants. Cutting it down will help promote some new and fresh growth for the spring time, and will give it a fresh start. I remember my customer being a little worried that it may not grow back at all. I will post a picture showcasing where it is today!
