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.

> Learn more about landscaping.

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 Bend

Tree service Bend

Turf & Tree Worx has offered professional, affordable tree service Bend in West Bend and Washington County for 30 years. Our available tree services include planting, removal, stump grinding, pruning, trimming, and more. Storm damage, infection, infestation, or otherwise, whatever your trees may need, we are equipped to provide a solution. Our recommendations are made by a certified arborist on staff with years of experience. Call Turf & Tree Worx today at (262) 675-2600 for skilled, professional tree services in Washington County.

Tree maintenance in winter

While tree service Bend interest tends to increase during the summer months, there are advantages to having your tree work done in the winter. The lower seasonal demand means you’ll have much more flexibility to make an appointment. With the leaves gone during the winter, it is easier for our trained arborist to thoroughly examine your trees and identify potential trouble spots. When pruning is done in the winter, it minimizes the possibility of disease or infestation taking hold in a cut branch before it can recover. Consider having tree services done by Turf & Tree Worx now, before the spring season arrives.

Tree removal in Washington County

The presence of large, mature trees can raise your property value up to 15% compared to similar properties without them. Why would you want to remove trees, then? After a powerful storm, the wounds of damaged trees provide an appealing entry point for invasive insects or fungal infestation. These can easily spread to the other trees on your property, quickly causing thousands of dollars in damage. You can prevent this from happening by letting us cut down the damaged tree and remove it from your land.


If you’re a new homeowner, you may not know everything about the trees on your property. We want it to be easy for our customers to hire us for tree services. You don’t have to worry about anything beyond calling us at (262) 675-2600, or contacting us through our website.

Stump grinding services in West Bend

Once we have removed the damaged tree from your property, there will still be the question of what to do with the remaining stump. If the stump is left in the ground, the roots of the tree stump will keep expanding under the ground. Stumps that are too close to walls and walking paths will damage and eventually break through even cement or stone structures, the roots will grow into them, cracking and eventually breaking the surface. The roots can also break nearby pipes, putting you at risk for leak damage. The best way to make sure a tree stump doesn’t come back to haunt you is to dig it up, grind it, and haul the remains away.

Local tree service

Turf & Tree Worx is the tree service Bend company you can trust. Tree services include an evaluation of the health of your trees and property for no additional charge. Fill out the detailed  Service Sign Up Form or call us at (262) 675-2600.

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.

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.

Tree service near me in Kewaskum

tree service near me in Kewaskum

tree service near me in Kewaskum

The first settlers to the area of what is now Kewaskum arrived in 1844. Originally called North Bend, the town was renamed Kewaskum in 1849 to differentiate it from the neighboring town of West Bend. Today, Kewaskum is home to over 4,000 people, split between Washington County and Fond du Lac County to the north. If you’ve been wondering, “Who can I call for tree service near me in Kewaskum?”, you’re in luck. Turf & Tree Worx offers tree service in your area. With 3 decades of experience in tree service and removal, you can have confidence that we’ll know what to do and how to do it right the first time.

Trees during summer

Wisconsin summers are accompanied by increased thunderstorm and tornado activity. These storms create hazards by breaking off tree branches; in severe storms, trees can have their trunks crack or topple over entirely. When this happens, we recommend calling Turf & Tree Worx to remove the broken tree. It’s not just the tree possibly falling over that is the worry; a dead tree can also attract pests that you don’t want on your land. When you have the tree hauled away, your worries will go with it.

Grinding the stumps

When you’re considering tree service near me in Kewaskum, consider grinding up the tree stumps left over after removing your damaged trees. As long as the stump remains, the roots of the tree stump can continue to grow outward. If the stump is close to cement or stone structures, the roots will grow into them, cracking and eventually breaking the surface. Grinding the stump will remove it entirely and ensure you won’t get any unpleasant future surprises. You will also have more options for future landscaping projects with it gone.

In with the new trees

Depending on your situation, you may have spots on your property that would benefit from the planting of new trees. Studies have shown that mature trees can add up to 15% to the value of your home. By planting them on the east or west side of your home, you can block out the summer sun and save money on air conditioning bills.
