Backyard Bug Control

Backyard Bug Control

Call Turf & Tree Worx for backyard bug control in Washington, Ozaukee, northeast Waukesha and northern Milwaukee County. Spring is here again, and that means lots of new bugs. Ants and mosquitos are just two of the dozens of species of bugs that can make a new home on your property. This is the time of year when insects lay their eggs. Ignoring an infestation can quickly mean your home and garden being overrun by intruders. When they move in, you want them gone ASAP.

Backyard bug control is part of our comprehensive list of lawn care services. If you have an infestation on your property, call us today at (262) 675-2600 for a free quote.

Treating for ants

Ants in your lawn: ants are a common problem found in lawns. If you have sandy soil, the problem is more prevalent. Treatment for ants is done with a water activated granular insecticide. The insect control product we use controls a large variety of surface insects such as ants. It’s a one-time knock down with residual activity of about 3 to 4 weeks. While total elimination of any turf insect is impossible, keeping them in check is not. When you have excess ant hills, or ants getting into your home or other dwellings, a treatment is recommended.

Sandy soils in many cases are better to spray liquid insect control because its instant contact rather than waiting for an activated granular to work in sand which doesn’t hold onto the product being released as well.

Carpenter ants are more difficult to control. Regardless of what type of ant, and weather, it’s in your house, a tree, the lawn, putting a bait out first is the best approach for success. Baits can be granular or gel. The ants will take the bait back to the queen, which is necessary to eliminate the colony. After a few days to approximately a week, you can spray along edges inside and outside with a clear odorless insect control commonly found in stores. This will also take care of the remaining ants. Just spraying in most cases will not solve the problem.

Mosquito control

You certainly don’t want mosquitos laying eggs on your property if you can avoid it. The Wisconsin State Department of Health has stated that climate change has warmed the local area. As a result, the mosquito breeding season is now longer than it was in the past. Mosquitos are more than just pests who make you itchy: their bites can also carry serious illnesses like West Nile virus and chikungunya. If you have a family and pets to take care of, our mosquito control program will help make sure they stay safe.

Other pests

A whole new wave of bugs arrives with the new plant growth in spring. Mosquitos and ants are among the most bothersome, but they’re not the only bugs looking to move into your garden. Starting at just $95, our insect control program will remove spiders, aphids, fleas, and other annoying bugs that like to turn your garden into a salad bar.

Spraying isn’t the only thing you can do to keep bugs under control. Removing dead, damaged, and infested trees will take away their favorite places to build nests. Turf & Tree Worx tree services are also an important part of the fight against bugs.

Local bug control experts

Spraying early in the season is an effective way to wipe out any new infestations before they have a chance to increase their numbers. We’ll kill the bugs you have, and since every pesticide application has 3-4 weeks of residual effectiveness, any new bugs looking to move in will have to keep moving.

Affordable Landscaping

Affordable Landscaping

Winter is coming to a close, and spring is on its way. Now is the time to upgrade your yard with simple, affordable landscaping projects. The current recession has been tough all around.  With so many people short on money, we’re all looking for places to tighten our belts. Turf & Tree Worx has been in business for 30 years. We offer quality work at reasonable prices for local homeowners. If you’re looking for a big visual improvement for a comparatively small investment, call Turf & Tree Worx at (262) 675-2600

Why is landscaping a good idea? It’s much more than just making your yard look nice. Landscaping projects can improve your home’s curb appeal, and raise its overall value.

Landscaping improves property value

Some affordable landscaping is a great thing to do when you’re trying to sell your home. Studies have shown that improving your home’s yard with landscaping projects can raise its value by up to 15%. The current real estate market is hotter than we’ve seen in decades. Even with home prices quickly rising in Wisconsin, prospective homebuyers from all over the world are still making cash offers well above asking price – sometimes by $100,000 or more. 

Whether you want to start a new project from scratch, or maintain existing landscaping structures, Turf and Tree Worx will handle all your affordable landscaping needs.

A few landscaping ideas

  • Front Walkway: Most homes connect to the sidewalk with a plain walkway of flat concrete slabs. Turf & Tree Worx landscapers can replace your boring walkway and replace it with a handcrafted work of art. You’ll impress your neighbors and passersby. More importantly, potential homebuyers will see it as soon as they arrive to look at the house.
  • Mulch beds: Give your yard a facelift: replace a section of ordinary grass with flowers or bushes planted in a new mulch bed. Then, define the edges with brick to limit soil loss through erosion.

Landscaping and tree services

A new mulch bed is also an ideal place to plant a brand new tree. Planting large, mature trees on a property have been shown to raise property values at a rate similar to landscaping. Further savings through trees can be achieved by planting them on the east and west sides of your house. Trees blocking out sunlight during the morning and evening will keep your home comparatively cool. This means less air conditioning and lower electric bills for your family.

Landscaping maintenance

Landscaping maintenance

The landscaping maintenance professionals at Turf & Tree Worx have been in business for 30 years. Turn your ordinary yard into a comfortable, beautiful spot for entertaining friends and family. Landscaping can raise the value of your home by up to 15% according to some studies. The current housing market heavily favors sellers. With the real estate market in Wisconsin seeing such high levels of demand, now is the perfect time to renovate your backyard. In this market, almost any landscaping project is likely to pay for itself in a relatively short period of time. Contact us today at (262) 675-2600 for landscaping services throughout Washington, Ozaukee, northeast Waukesha, and northern Milwaukee County, WI.

Keep your home in its best possible condition

Landscaping maintenance is an essential part of general home upkeep. All outdoor structures suffer from weathering over time. The sun, the wind, and the rain all do incremental damage that adds up over the course of months and years. Stone and metal structures eventually decay, and wood needs to be replaced even more frequently. Periodic repairs to these outdoor components will keep your home in prime condition, whether you’re looking to sell your home, or just to live in it.

Patios

A well-built patio adds additional usable space to the outside of your home. Host events for friends and family, perform arts and crafts, or take a moment for yourself and enjoy fresh air while you scroll through your timeline.

Outdoor cooking and fire

Spend more time outdoors during the spring and summer with an outdoor cooking area. Do all your prep and cleanup in one place with an outdoor oven, stove, counter, and sink. Get that comfy campfire feeling whenever you want with a dedicated outdoor fire pit.

Artisan walkways

A project that can immediately improve both home value and curb appeal is a handcrafted walking path from the sidewalk to the front door of your home. Instantly impress any potential homebuyers!

Retaining walls

The main purpose of a retaining wall is to keep the soil around it in place. Over time, natural erosion can cause loss of soil, meaning fewer nutrients for your lawn. As an added benefit, the improved functionality and aesthetics of your property after building the wall will likely increase its value.

Draining solutions

Redirect rainwater away from your home and lawn so your yard doesn’t turn into a big puddle on rainy days.

lawn service near me

Lawn service near me

Turf & Tree Worx has been a local provider of lawn service near me for three decades. We offer mowing and other lawn services in Washington and Ozaukee counties. Our comprehensive list of lawn services include mowing, edging, fertilization, weed control, aeration, soil treatment, and more. Why spend your limited free time taking care of your lawn? Let the experienced lawn care professionals at Turf & Tree Worx handle it for you. When you need professional lawn care at a reasonable price, call Turf & Tree Worx at (262) 675-2600.

Let us do the hard work for you

Wisconsin is a place where plant life thrives. Many homes in Wisconsin feature sprawling lawns in the front and back yards. Your grass will continue to grow slowly during the winter months, but expect this to accelerate with spring’s arrival, and speed up further in summer. You’ll be in the perfect position to maximize your lawn’s health with lawn service near me by signing up for our lawn fertilization and weed control service at this early point in the year. 

Instead of using your limited weekend time on lawn care, let Turf & Tree Worx do it for you. We’ll mow your grass, trim the edges, and clean up all the clippings at the end. You can watch television, go to the gym, or go out to lunch. It’s the closest thing there is to your lawn mowing  itself.

Part of lawn maintenance is weed control

A crucial part of any lawn care program is weed control. One of the most frustrating varieties of weed is crabgrass. At first glance, crabgrass looks very similar to regular grass. Examine the parts of your lawn near paved sidewalks and stone paths. Crabgrass clusters near stone and concrete because it thrives in the heat. It grows outward from a central cluster point, where the roots take hold. One crabgrass plant can produce up to 150,000 seeds during its short lifetime, after which the plant dies, leaving a dead patch in your lawn.  Luckily, seeds aren’t produced until summer, leaving you plenty of time to stop the spread of crabgrass on your property.

Get bugs to bug off

The new growth of plant life in spring is accompanied by newly-hatched insects as well. Our insect control program starts at just $95. We will get rid of mosquitos, aphids, ants, and other pests that are proven to cause extensive damage to flora and people alike. Mosquitos are known to be carriers of several contagious illnesses, including West Nile Virus and chikungunya. 


In addition to spraying, you can also help keep intrusive pests off your property by removing dead and infested trees. Turf & Tree Worx will be happy to help you with tree services as well, so bugs don’t have anywhere on your property to call home.

Tree service near me

Tree Service near me

For 30 years, Turf & Tree Worx has provided tree service near me. We serve Ozaukee, Washington, northeast Waukesha, and northern Milwaukee counties. Come to us for tree services including trimming, planting, removal, stump grinding, and more. Turf & Tree Worx has a certified arborist on staff. You can be sure our recommendations are the result of years of experience and education. We can handle any problem you might have related to trees, whether it’s storm damage, infection, or infestation. When you need help with the trees on your property, call Turf & Tree Worx today at (262) 675-2600 for skilled, professional tree services.

Breathe new life into your property with new trees

If your property is open and plain, you could likely benefit from the addition of new trees to your land. Studies show that mature trees add up to 15% to property values. Planting trees on the east side of your property can help block out the sunrise, while planting on the west side can block rays from sunsets. The result is substantial savings on your future electricity bills, and much less glare on the screens of your devices. Call Turf & Tree Worx today if you need tree service near me. You can continue to count on us in the future to keep your new trees trimmed, pruned, and healthy.

Tree removal

Trees can be a huge boon to your property value. In some cases, the best move is not planting a new tree, but removing it. Your tree can be damaged or killed by the wind and rain of a strong storm. If the integrity of the tree’s trunk is damaged, it can be at risk of toppling over at any time. Dead trees attract pests like termites, and make ideal hosts for tree diseases. When you need a tree removed, Turf & Tree Worx can handle every detail, every step of the way. Our goal is to make the process as simple for our customers as possible.

Stump grinding

After we cut down a tree, there’s still one more part of the job: grinding the stump. Cutting down a tree doesn’t kill its stump. The roots underground will continue to grow outward. They will eventually break through any stone or concrete surfaces in the way. The only way to make sure this doesn’t happen is to remove the stump entirely and grind it up. Stump grinding is another tree service Turf & Tree Worx is happy to provide for our customers.

We care about trees

Have you been wondering, “Who should I call for tree service near me?” If so, you have found your answer. With a certified arborist on staff, you can rest assured that our recommendations come with decades of experience behind them. Tree services include an evaluation of the health of your trees and property for no additional charge. Call Turf & Tree Worx at (262) 675-2600, or fill out the detailed  Service Sign Up Form on our website, and get your trees taken care of today.

tree trimming Mequon wi

tree trimming Mequon wi

Mequon is a city in Wisconsin that is home to 23,000 people. It was first settled in the 1830s, and incorporated as a city in 1957, experiencing prolific growth after the end of World War II. Are you a local Mequon homeowner with trees on your property? Are you looking for services for tree trimming Mequon WI? Turf & Tree Worx specializes in tree trimming and many other lawn care services. We have been serving customers in Ozaukee, Washington, northern Milwaukee, and Mequon counties for 30 years. We have a certified arborist on staff, so when Turf & Tree Worx makes recommendations about your trees, you can be confident that we’re steering you in the right direction.

Why is tree trimming important?

Trimming your trees regularly is important for three reasons: aesthetics, tree health, and safety. Keep your tree roots and branches trimmed to a balanced shape for improved appearance that increases interest in your property. Preventing overgrowth allows the tree to dedicate more resources to fewer branches, aiding healthy growth. When parts of your tree are infested with pests, or infected with a tree-specific illness, pruning those branches will prevent the condition from spreading to the rest of the tree. Increase safety by cutting back those errantly-placed branches that are too close to windows or power lines.

Falling into Autumn

Summer is almost over, but there’s still time to get your tree trimming Mequon WI done. With fewer branches on your tree, you won’t have to worry about your yard being covered in leaves after they turn red and fall off. If you have any dead trees on your land, let Turf & Tree Worx remove it for you. Dead trees are at risk of toppling over, potentially causing serious injury or property damage. They can also attract animals that want to make those trees their new home. Take precautions now so that vermin don’t become tempted to make your home their new home.

Grinding the stumps

When a tree is cut down, the job isn’t necessarily finished: you’ll still have a tree stump left over. As long as the stump itself remains, the roots will continue to grow under the surface. If it’s too close to cement surfaces like patios or walkways, the roots will crack and then eventually break through the concrete. The last step is to grind up the stump. Stump grinding is part of our professional tree trimming and removal service.

Wisconsin’s best tree service specialists

Your home is the most important investment you’ll ever make for your family: don’t they deserve the absolute best? Turf & Tree Worx is proud to provide tree trimming Mequon WI services for our customers. Our certified arborist will make a determination on the health of your trees, then make a recommendation based on years of study and work experience. The peace of mind that comes with knowing your property is in the care of local experts is something you can’t put a price on.

Lawn maintenance in Cedarburg

Cedarburg is home to over 11,000 people and 4,600 individual households. It boasts the beautiful Cedar Creek, an extremely low crime rate, and an acclaimed local school district. Cedarburg is an idyllic place to buy a home or raise a family. As a locally owned and operated company for 30 years, Turf & Tree Worx is happy to provide lawn maintenance in Cedarburg for local homeowners. Our team of lawn care professionals is ready to bring out the best in your home’s lawn.

Let us do the hard work for you

Most Wisconsin homes feature large, lush lawns. Cedarburg follows this trend as well. Your grass will grow faster than usual during the summer months. This is especially true if you signed up for our lawn fertilization and weed control service earlier in the year. Instead of using your limited weekend time on lawn care, let Turf & Tree Worx do your lawn maintenance in Cedarburg. We’ll mow the lawn, trim the edges, and remove the trimmings when we’re done. You can watch the game, get your shopping done, or take a nap. It’s like having your lawn mow itself.


If you have trees on your property, summer is the best time of year to trim those branches or take down storm-damaged trees. Our professional arborist on staff can evaluate the health of your trees and make a recommendation.

Crabgrass isn’t grass

It looks like grass at a distance, but don’t be fooled. Crabgrass is an insidious weed that will try to replace the grass in your lawn. It tends to cluster near paved areas and hotter areas of your lawn. The best time for Turf & Tree Worx to take steps to contain and eliminate crabgrass is between July and September. This is when crabgrass produces its seeds. It turns brown and dies soon after, tarnishing the appearance of your lawn for months. 

For more information on treating your crabgrass, call us at (262) 675-2600 for a free service quote.

Spring

The Emerald Ash Borer

In recent years, an invasive species of beetle known as the Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) has moved into the Ozaukee County area. This insect is native to northeast Asia. Adult EABs themselves do not do much damage, but they do their real damage when they lay eggs: their larvae spend up to two years underneath the tree bark, feeding on its insides. Infestations can kill most ash trees within 5 years. Turf and Tree Worx is offering a free tree assessment for the first 50 callers to check for the presence of EABs. Get your no-obligation estimate and keep your trees safe from these harmful insects. Offer expires March 31, 2021.
