Jim’s Mowing – The grass is greener on your side of the fence

The key to a healthy lawn this summer is watering. For a beautiful and lush lawn, give it a deep soaking early in the morning, twice a week. This way you won’t end up with a shallow root system or a weak lawn that is more likely to be overrun by weeds and pests.

Jim’s Termite and Pest Control – Keeping those pests away

We’ve all experienced those annoying little pests that fly and crawl around our home. Here are some super simple tips to deter insects and small rodents. Ensure your kitchen and bathrooms are clean, dispose of food waste regularly, and finally, don’t let water stagnate in buckets or kiddie pools. Now you can enjoy your summertime – pest free!

Jim’s Fire Safety – Smoke alarms save lives

We strongly recommend testing your smoke alarms – frequently! They could potentially save your life. To test your smoke alarm just press and hold the test button, then a loud, ear-piecing sound should begin. If the sound is too faint or soft, or no sound at all, then it’s time to change the battery.

Jim’s Pool Care – Refresh with fresh water

A handy hint for keeping your swimming pool water sparkling, is fresh water. Add 3% – 5% of new water to the total water volume. This will weaken concentrations of metals and salts like iron, copper, and chlorides that can build up and cause cloudy water. Adding fresh water 3 times a year will help keep your water crystal clear.
