2012 Tick Season

From our trusted colleague Rick Ostfeld, Disease Ecologist and author of Lyme Disease: The Ecology of a Complex System.

“In the next week or so I’ll be preparing press materials alerting the public to what we predict will be a particularly high-risk year for Lyme disease and other tick-borne diseases — 2012.  This is not because of the unusually warm winter, however.  There is no rigorous evidence supporting a positive correlation between winter temperatures at a site and overwinter survival or subsequent spring/summer density of ticks.  The reason we’re expecting a bad 2012 is that heavy acorn masting in 2010 in the northeast led to very high densities of white-footed mice and eastern chipmunks in 2011.  Both these species but especially mice are highly competent reservoirs for the Lyme disease spirochete and also good-quality hosts for larval ticks.  In our 20-year dataset, the summer after a high-mouse year almost always sees unusually high abundance of infected nymphal blacklegged ticks.”

GreenKeepers Lawn Care LLC offers a 100% Organic Tick Control Program. Have peace of mind this summer that you and your loved ones are protected from ticks on your property.  We would love the opportunity to consult with you regarding Tick control options as well as maintaining the proper health of your lawn and landscape.

Best Regards,

Food For Thought…

Your Landscape Value

A nicely landscaped property can increase the value of your home by 15%, allowing owners to recoup 100-200% of their investment at selling time. This compares with the investment recovery rates for kitchen remodeling (75-125%), bathroom remodeling (20-120%), swimming pool additions (20-50%).

As an investment, landscaping can increase the value of your property by as much as 20% – if it is done well.

The Wall Street Journal reported that landscape investments are recovered fully, and sometimes doubled, via increasing real estate values.

According to a joint study by Clemson University and theUniversity of Maryland, potential home buyers will pay up to 11.3% above the asking price for homes with thoughtfully-designed landscaping.

“Appropriate, well-designed landscaping increases in value over time. With landscaping, value is directly related to size and performance.”

According to Money Magazine (May 2003), spending on landscape design and installation has more than tripled in the past five years, hitting $14.3 billion in 2002. And no wonder–it offers the best return on investment of any home improvement you can make.

GreenKeepers Lawn Care LLC is dedicated to helping you achieve your short term and long term goals in investing in your home landscape.  We truly believe a healthy and well designed landscape not only is a great investment for today but for years to come. 

We always look forward to working with you and hearing about you visions for you landscape.
