Congratulations to Janet Evans of Hopewell, winner of the Royal Trip to Williamsburg Raffle! She and a guest will step into a world of history and heritage as they spend 4 luxurious nights at the Williamsburg Inn, in the same suite occupied by Queen Elizabeth II during her visit to Colonial Williamsburg in 2007.
The Royal Trip to Williamsburg includes all of the following:
Flying Squirrels broadcaster Jay Burnham is joined with Wes McElroy and Michael Feldstein as they bring you in the Eastern League topsy turvy playoff race, Michael uncovers hidden athletic talent at The Diamond, Jack Snodgrass pitches himself for off-season employment and meet new Flying Squirrels outfielder Elliott Blair!
Get a head start on repairing the damage done to your lawn by the summer heat. Treat unwanted weeds and weedy grasses in your lawn with a herbicide containing glyphosate. If it doesn’t rain for two or three days after treating, water the area to insure the herbicide is cycling through the system of the plant. In approximately seven days the weeds will be dead and you’ll be able to plant new grass seed in their place.
Schedule a core aerator for your lawn. Normal summer rain and heat tend to bake our soils resulting in a compacted lawn. Aeration with a core aerator will loosen the soil and allow moisture to soak in rather than run off. Whether you do-it-yourself or hire a contractor, aeration will help strengthen your lawn.
