Listen to this segment

Jay from Harper's Nurseries & Landscape joins us by phone this 4th of July! He's enjoying cooler temps in Northern Arizona.

Tip of the Week:
There are some plants that love this hot weather, so you can still add to your landscape and garden right now.


*Lawn Prep for summers. How to keep it green during or after the odd transition this year.

Tim with Scotty's Lawnmower joins the show:

  • Choosing the correct mower.
  • String trimmers are still the best way to edge around your lawn.
  • What pricing should you expect to pay.
  • Advantages of the different types of lawnmowers

Segment 2 (running time 6:34)

Listen to this segment

More on lawnmower's:

  • Choosing the correct type for your lawn.
  • How do they cut those lines on major league baseball fields? You can have it too! Call Scotty's Lawnmower for the details.

Callers:

  • Gail - Her cactus' seems to be collapsing from the top down.....she's not watering it, but is it a disease?

Recommendation - This is somewhat common and he could water it during the extreme heat. If it's too much water, it will weigh down the pads and cause the arms to weigh down and fall.

Segment 3 (running time 11:56)

Listen to this segment

-Romey plays a version of the National Anthem played by a Stihl chainsaw.
-More on proper mowing with Tim with Scotty's Lawnmower.

Caller:

  • Cory - He has fescue grass for his summer lawn and it's still yellow even though he's watering it.

Recommendation - Fescue grass is a winter grass and that's why it's not thriving. That's why we have the Bermuda grass here.  If he insists on growing the fescue grass, he needs to let it grow quite a bit longer than a standard lawn. Water later in the evening, not at noon.

*We discuss painting lawns.....

*Prepping your mower that has been sitting for more than a week or two.

*Why not use a "lifetime" attachment for a grass trimmer?

*Listen for different types of fuel that will last longer than the standard gas station fuel.

Callers:

  • Paul - The ceiling in his master bedroom has settled and cause some caused cracks and imperfections on the drywall.  What should he do?

Callers:

  • Richard - He's due for a new roof on his home and he likes the look of steel roofs. What is our opinion of using them for a residential roof?

Recommendation - We love them!!! Go for it if you can afford it. We continue with this topic in the next segment.

Segment 3 (running time 12:14)

Listen to this segment

Rosie loves metal roofs and he's going to investigate with our roofing experts. Rosie-certified roofers;  Lyons Roofing, Pinnacle Roofing, or Durafoam Roofing.

Callers:

  • Dave - He recently did some work on his AC. He changed the filter and noticed that he has an opening going directly into his ac unit from the attic. That means 120 degree attic air is being sucked into his AC unit.

Recommendation - Write down the name of the business that installed the AC unit and don't call them again!  This is a huge mistake and needs to be corrected.

**If you'd like to prevent hiring the wrong contractor, use Rosie's Consumer Guides!

  • Mary - The stucco surface on her mailbox is cracking and falling off....Can she paint it or does she need to have the stucco repaired 1st?

Recommendation - Rosie's going to follow up with her, but if she simply needs paint, she can stop in at the nearest PPG Paint Store for advice.
