Fertilzing


Fertilizing your lawn is another key to maintaining the brilliant greens of a well-nourished lawn. The three major nutrients that are the key to green are nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P) and potassium (K).

All three nutrients are essential in lawn care because they

  • enhance color
  • promote quick roots and seeding
  • improve winter hardiness
  • reduce the risk of disease

Give us a call and we will be happy to work with you on getting your lawn looking its best.

Energy-Efficient Landscaping Tips


Sitting under a shade tree on a hot day makes you cooler, and standing by a wall on a cold, windy day makes you feel warmer. It seems pretty obvious. What’s less obvious is that you can landscape your yard to offer your home those same benefits. It just takes a bit of planning in the way you site trees, fences, and other elements.

  • A well-positioned tree can save up to 25 percent of your home’s energy for heating and cooling.
  • A tree-shaded yard can be up to 6 degrees cooler than a sunny yard. A shaded lawn can be up to 25 degrees cooler than sunny pavement.
  • Shading your home’s roof can increase your air conditioner’s energy efficiency by more than 10 percent.
  • A single shade tree equals the cooling power of 15 air conditioners — and it runs for free!
  • Three house-shading trees can cut your cooling bill by as much as half.
  • Windbreaks can cut winter heating bills by 10 to 30 percent.

Pay attention to the breeze and use fences or shrubs to help direct cooling breezes at your house. Likewise, help stop the sun from turning your home into an oven by planting large evergreen trees on the south or southwest side of your home. Decrease the effect of the humidity by planting drought-tolerant plants next to your home. Avoid siting thirsty plants next to your house; they’re better suited for other corners of your yard.

Eagle Eye Outfitters


Do It Right Lawn Care in Dothan, AL was contracted by Eagle Eye Outfitters to do the landscaping at their new location. We installed a new irrigation system and covered everything with new sod. Once the new plants and trees were in place we were able to add the finishing touch with a fresh layer of pine straw. We are very please with the results.
