Big benefits of a little shade
As the days of summer grow hotter and sunnier, each shady area has become a welcoming oasis on your property. Having Gerbert & Sons design and construct a beautiful, custom pergola or arbor can bring you relief from direct sunlight, and make it so you want to spend more time enjoying the outdoors. A pergola can stand on its own or blend seamlessly into your existing patio or deck, adding room for a lovely lounge area, maybe even with built-in seating. Arbors create a unique entrance for walkways or gardens, and can be further enhanced by our expert stone masonry, giving them attractive texture and increasing the visual interest by adding another natural element. Both have an open lattice style roof design, allowing air to easily circulate and provide refreshing breezes to pass overhead. Our landscape architecture team will design the perfect shade source for you and your land, and help add additional color and fragrance through the plants and climbing vines that complement and thrive around these new, shadier and cooler structures!

Summer can be the ideal time for pruning many trees and large shrubs, to help keep healthy and thriving plantings. Pruning helps direct their growth and keeps your property looking neat and well-tended. But since it’s vital to know what does best being cut back in summer and needs to be pruned this time of year, as well as how to get the best results, it’s important to consult a skilled professional- luckily, Gerbert & Sons are a valued partner in your property’s care. If pruning is done too early, your fruits and flowers will be lost for the season, and if done too late, it could compromise the yield and blooms you expect next season. Our experts will determine the most appropriate pruning plan for your property’s particular trees and shrubs. Maybe not dinner-time conversation, but now is also a great time to consider contacting us about the benefits of our organic grub control treatment. In the Northeast, these grubs are usually the larvae of Japanese beetles, which lay their eggs in your beautiful, attractive lawn in mid-July. Their eggs hatch in late August, and these new grub worms thrive on the root system of your grass, drying it out just as we reach the peak of summer. The results are unwanted dry, brown spots on your lawn. But never fear- we’ll design a plan for an organic solution of this problem, keeping your yard green and hearty all season long.
Let the experts at Gerbert & Sons keep your property beautiful throughout the summer months.
