Properties, like people, make indelible first impressions. Just as a dazzling smile and friendly disposition can win over a stranger within the first 15 seconds of a conversation, a beautiful landscape can create an instant appreciation for one’s home or business. However, as you are likely already aware, attractive landscapes aren’t created overnight. In fact, it can take years for your trees and shrubs to mature to the point at which they frame the type look you’re hoping to achieve. That’s exactly why the health of the plants within your landscape should remain one of your top priorities.
Arguably, trees are the single most valuable part of any landscape. Trees give lawns dimension and personality – and they are ever growing and changing all throughout the year. Unfortunately, however, not everyone respects the lives of the trees on your property. There is one small but extremely dangerous intruder that can quickly attack and kill your precious trees – the emerald ash borer (EAB).
These iridescent green, bullet-shaped insects are smaller than a penny, but they can cause the same amount of damage as a hatchet-wielding lumberjack if you don’t stop them immediately. EAB threaten about 45 to 65 species of ash trees and, along with other pests, cause billions of dollars worth of damage each and every year. If EAB have begun to attack your landscape, it’s important to act fast before they cause even more destruction. Generally, you can choose to either remove and replace the affected tree – or you can hire a professional to treat the problem.
Here at Liban’s Landscaping, we understand how important trees are to your lawn and we know that removing and replacing a tree doesn’t always fit your needs. Luckily, our experienced specialists can diagnose and treat EAB damage quickly, effectively and affordably. To inquire about pricing, call us today at: 414-406-7619.
PREVENTATIVE TREATMENT WITH NUTRIENTS IS KEY! ONCE THE DAMAGE IS DONE IT MAY BE TO LATE TO SAVE THE TREE.

After a long day in the sun without proper hydration, people face all sorts of uncomfortable repercussions. You may end up with a nasty sunburn, extreme dehydration and, possibly, even heat stroke. In extreme cases, some people are rushed to the hospital in order to be effectively rehydrated and revived to a healthy state. In many ways, lawns, trees and shrubs are really no different. The frequent sun exposure, poor hydration and dry air of a drought can do serious damage to your landscaping. Unfortunately, unlike people, plants have a much slimmer chance of bouncing back without intervention.
Sometimes, when lawns become dotted with brown and yellow dry spots where grass has burned away, time and watering will do little to no good. In fact, instead of healthy grass growing back over these spots, dead areas can become home to unsightly crab grass and fast-growing weeds. Over time, annual grass and weeds will spread and ruin your once perfectly groomed lawn. Luckily, there are ways to bring your grass back to life after a drought.
Here in Milwaukee and Waukesha, the best time to replenish your lawn is during the hot and sticky dog days of summer. Late August and September present ideal conditions and temperatures for silt seeding and other techniques used to treat lawn spots. Additionally, this is the perfect time for fertilizing your lawn so it has plenty of opportunity to thicken up before the following winter and spring.
