Welcome to the autumn 2012 newsletter. We have had a relatively warm and wet start to autumn so lawns are looking green and lush. Now is a good time to fertilize your lawn to get them growing vigorously before winter to help them out compete the weeds. If you have a sparse and patchy lawn over winter it gives weeds an opportunity to get established.
During late March Melbourne had the "Flower and Garden Show" at the Royal Exhibition Building and Carlton Gardens. This years show as usual was packed full of great displays and exhibits. Our apprentice Steve was involved with constructing one of the display gardens in his TAFE class through Chisolm.

After a wet Spring we have enjoyed a warm sunny start to Summer. The good news is that Melbourne's water storage is up to 66% and we are now at level one water restrictions
Maintaining your garden to a high standard is going to be easier than it has been recently. Now is a good time to fertilize your lawn as we are able to water the fertilizer in. Many properties have irrigation systems that were installed before water restrictions came in and therefore haven't been used in years. Your system will no doubt need servicing before it is able to be used again.

Thankfully November is over and he is clean shaven now.
Recently we have recently purchased a new mower deck for our Walker ride on mower. We now are able to offer a ride on with grass catcher to our list of services.
We will not be closing completely down over the Christmas break this year. We will only be closed for the public holidays.
Glen and Phil along with the staff at AC Maintenance, Avril, Steve, Ian and Aurelio would like to thank and wish all our valued customers a Merry Christmas and a safe and Happy New Year

Winter is well behind us as we look forward to the warmer months. Good Winter rains see Melbourne's water storage up to 62% at the start of Spring. Water restrictions could be lifted up to stage one restrictions in November. So now is a great time to think about rejuvenating your lawn or garden. For the first time in years we will be able to water lawns. We can help with a range of services to ensure that you have the best lawn in the street. Services include fertilizing, weed control, aerating, oversowing and installing instant turf.
Due to demand we are now able to accept payment by credit card through PayPal. If you wish to use this service please let us know and we will invoice you via email. There is a 3% service fee to cover the cost of our transaction fee.
