.如果你把你的草坪当作一个社区，杂草是没有人喜欢的新邻居. 他们把音乐放得很大声, 他们的狗不停地叫, and they don't bother keeping their house in good condition. 这样的邻居不仅很烦人，还会导致房产价值暴跌. 杂草也很相似. They look terrible and can cause major damage to your lawn. 今天我们来看看杂草破坏草坪的几种方式，以及你可以做些什么来防止这种情况发生.
对初学者来说, 它们占用了你院子里草和其他植物生长所需的宝贵空间. Let's go back to the neighborhood analogy. There is only so much space in your neighborhood to build housing. Suddenly, a developer moves in and starts putting up new condominiums. Things would get very crowded in your neighborhood very quickly. Weeds can also steal precious food from your plants, leaving them more susceptible to disease and insect invasion. Your plants need light, water, and nutrients like nitrogen and potassium to grow. Weeds love to steal these nutrients from healthy plants to use for themselves.
有些杂草也是寄生虫. These weeds not only compete with healthy plants for real estate and nutrients, they also attach themselves to the stems or roots of them. This, in turn, leaves them vulnerable to disease and insect infestation. Certain weeds can also wreak havoc on humans. According to the Asthma and 所有ergy Foundation of America, more than 23 million Americans suffer from ragweed allergies. 任何不幸患有这些过敏症的人都可以告诉你，在他们的院子里有杂草是多么可怕.
You put a lot of work into your yard and garden. You deserve to have an outdoor space that is free of weeds. Fortunately, there are a few basic steps 你可以 take to make this a reality. First and foremost, it is important to eliminate any bare soil. 没有任何植物生命的土壤为杂草种子提供了不受干扰的完美生长环境. 在没有杂草生长的地方铺上适当数量的覆盖物，以阻止杂草生长，并考虑在这个地方种植新的草和/或植物. 还建议你在秋天的某个时候种植任何作物. 这将在冬天和春天保护你的土壤，并防止任何新的杂草生根.
如果太晚了，杂草已经在你的草坪和花园安家，那还好. Mowing your grass on a routine basis can keep new weeds from popping up. You can also alter your watering schedule depending on your yard's needs. 少给草浇水，多浇水会让草更强壮，更不容易被杂草入侵.
你也可以雇佣一个 草坪护理专业 to help you with those nasty weeds. 我们这里的Aventura苗圃和园林将非常乐意清除您的院子和花园中任何入侵的杂草. 今天给我们打个电话 and let us know how we can help you.
No gardener wants to deal with invasive pests that may inhabit their yard. 这尤其适用于 佛罗里达中部的花园害虫， as we certainly have our fair share. 无论大小，害虫都会对健康的草坪和/或花园造成严重破坏. In an effort to help you keep your garden free of any unwanted critters, today we take a look at the best way to get rid of some of the most common pests.
看看这个小家伙...他多可爱啊? Well, cuteness factor aside, he can do some major damage to your lawn. If you notice small mounds of soil dotting your yard, chances are you have a mole. The mounds are created when moles dig up dirt in search of grubs and insects. 用蓖麻油混合物使小孔饱和，大多数的摩尔可以被驱走. 简单地将四汤匙植物洗涤剂和十二盎司的蓖麻油混合, 把混合物放进喷雾器里, and spray liberally where the creatures are digging. This method won't do any permanent damage to your furry friends, only cause them to get an upset tummy and seek a more desirable location.
Now on to the not so cute critters. Did you know that the various Augustine grasses are the most popular in Florida? 事实证明, in addition to being popular with Floridians, they are also popular with chinch bugs. 如果你的院子里有奥古斯丁的草，你就需要注意有没有臭虫. These pests can leave ugly, dry, brown spots on your otherwise beautiful lawn. Chinch bugs can be kept at bay by properly aerating your lawn. 如果进行预防性维护已经太迟了，但是您注意到虫害，您将需要一个 草坪护理专业 永远摆脱他们.
日本甲虫，又名 Popillia粳稻 is about as attractive as a bug can get. 与一个组合绿色/金色的壳，他们很容易发现后，他们已经侵染你的花园. Adult Japanese Beetles feast on both the fruit and the leaves of various plants. 它们成群结队，这意味着你的花园会很快受到严重的破坏. 日本甲虫幼虫可以吃你的草的根，导致棕色斑点出现.
除掉成年日本甲虫最简单的方法就是用手把它们从植物上摘下来，扔进一桶肥皂水里. 如果你不太敢碰它们，我强烈建议你戴上一副厚厚的园艺手套. For grubs, the solution is a bit trickier. A useful product for getting rid of grubs is milky spore. This is a natural bacteria that kills grubs and causes them to decompose. 分解后, 剩下的材料在地面上产生新的孢子，从而杀死更多的蛴螬. 这就是我所说的双赢!

HOA设施经理对他们的365比分网电竞供应商最常见的抱怨是，他们没有很好地沟通或为客户提供积极的建议. 佛罗里达州中部的一家365比分网电竞美化公司可能会可靠地“修剪和吹”，但不会做任何其他为客户提供价值的事情. 在为您的365比分网电竞美化需求雇佣供应商之前，请询问他们的沟通方法. Do they check on their clients periodically? 他们是否对该地区哪种植物和花卉看起来最好提出建议?
这也是一个必须为任何365比分网电竞公司有一个增强招聘过程到位. 这将确保一个稳定和可靠的劳动力，可以真正了解您的HOA的365比分网电竞需求和您可能面临的挑战. 一个好的船员会经常提供关于如何改善服务和外观的建议.

It is also a good idea to ask any company you are considering for referrals. 花点时间打电话给这些推荐人，问问他们对公司的看法. How is the company's customer service? How do they handle disputes and/or disagreements? Are there any areas that they need to improve in? 这些都是在你决定录用之前要问的重要问题.
You've asked the right questions and received the right answers. 你已经找到了一个 绿化公司 that can perform the work you need at a reasonable price. 在您签署任何类型的合同之前，先让您的需求和期望清楚. Tell them if you expect correspondence and with what frequency. 告诉他们，你希望他们的员工就如何改善HOA的状况提供建议. 在一开始就明确提出你的要求是避免日后发生冲突和麻烦的最好方法.
