Fairfield Landscaping’s Snow Removal Services
This time of year, snowfall and the fluctuations in temperature can lead to serious roof and home damage. Melting snow re-freezes along your roofline, forming into a block of ice. That ice acts as a dam, blocking excess water so it can’t properly drain off your roof. The water has to go somewhere—up under your roof shingles and inside your home is what you need to avoid.

There are bare spots all over my lawn. Why are they there and how can I fix them?
Bare spots can be caused by a number of reasons. The most common causes are pet and or wild animal damage. Animal urine is like dumping a pile of fertilizer in one spot all over the lawn. Grass cannot handle the amount of nitrogen present in urine and experiences extreme desiccation and eventually death. Other causes of animal damage are the presence of insects. Animals will dig up grass to eat grubs, earthworms and other insects that may be present in the lawn.
