Your Yard Had a Hard Winter

dead pine tree

LARCHMONT– You remember your yard. That pretty place you hang out in the summer. One of the reasons you came to Hipsturbia, your retreat from the City.

It’s still there.

Our friends at Larchmont Nursery want you to know a couple of things as the crocuses (croci?) break through the hard ground.

First, see that tree above? That tree is not dormant, nor “coming back in the spring.” That tree is dead, the result of salt damage from hurricane Sandy. It should be removed before the next big storm.

And- when the memory of storms is far behind us and you’re swatting at mosquitoes, there are big developments in the organic mosquito control industry. Joanne at Larchmont Nurseries says a new product made from the Oils of Citronella, Thyme and Lemongrass dispenses mosquito control through your sprinkler system without the use of pesticides. Give her a call for more information.

If only it prevented hurricanes.

The tree may be salt damaged but not dead. The best way to tell is to scratch (with your thumbnail) the bark off a thin branch to see if the wood is green underneath.

I know. My neighbor’s yard service guys were out this morning, with the leaf blowers going at 8:15. Argggh. It was so loud and so unwelcome and so inconsiderate.
