Welcome to the World, Baby Girl!

 

 

Algiere’s Landscaping is pleased to announce our latest addition!

Our biggest feat yet, parenthood!

 

Audrey Elisabeth Algiere arrived on August 12. At seven pounds, three ounces and nineteen inches long, she’s got a long way to go before she fills Daddy Ben’s shoes. But we have high hopes for this little one’s future in the business!

 

While mother and baby settle in at home, it may take a day or two to get back to you when you call. Rest assured though, you can still expect the same quality of service as you’ve come to expect from us. We’ve got even more reason to do our very best when it comes to your lawn and garden needs.

What all the Hip Landscapers are Wearing this Season

Ben recently got a pair of Duluth’s Fire Hose pants, and he couldn’t be happier with the comfort and durability they provide. They’ve got double the thread count of regular work pants, so they’re twice as strong. Duluth’s special treatment ensures most stains will be repelled. All in all, these trousers are meant to take on whatever landscaping job Ben throws at them.

ooohhhh…..sexy…….

Fire Hose pants come in all the great landscaping colors, namely brown and green. Too hot for summer? No worries, Duluth also makes a stylish pair of Fire Hose shorts as well.

The pants were a gift from Ben’s dad John. Ben is notorious for going through pants and shoes in less than a month, and Michelle was having a hard time finding a pair of trousers durable enough to go through the wear and tear of landscaping.

To that end, we’ve accepted the Duluth challenge to try and wear them out. Think you have a job too tough for Ben and his pants? Give Algiere’s a call and put us to the test!

The Straight Poop About Milorganite

The Straight Poop About Milorganite

Canis latrans Français : Un coyote en Arizona

You want my WHAT?????????

 

When our customers complain about deer problems, instead of reaching for the coyote pee, we recommend Milorganite instead. Then they ask us what it’s made of, and we get a funny look on our faces and say, “Do you really want to know?” Most of the time, the answer is, “No.”

 

But for those of you who, after seeing the fantastic results, may just be a little curious, here’s the straight poop. Milorganite, made inMilwaukeeWisconsin, is one of the world’s largest recycling efforts. Wastewater goes through a filtration system, where clean water comes out the other end and is sent toLake Michigan. The rest is dried out, bagged, and sold at fine retailers the world over as Milorganite.

 

That’s right, folks Milorganite is people…er….waste. And the microbes that eat it.

 

The process is completely safe, the microbes and waste are heated up to between 900 and 1200 degrees so any pathogens still lurking within are killed off. And it’s completely organic so there are no harsh chemicals involved and so there’s no danger to pets, children, or the environment.

 

Ben recommends it because it’s less expensive than coyote urine, and covers a larger area. It also does double duty as a fertilizer, a claim no coyote can make.

 

If however the idea of Milorganite makes you a little squeamish, the second best alternative is Liquid Fence. It needs to be reapplied every 6-8 weeks and is more expensive, but works almost as well.

 

So if you’re trying to keep pesky deer away from your rose bushes or trying to go green with organic vegetable and flower gardens on your property this season, call Algiere’s. We have the solution you’ve been looking for.
