What was Nissan thinking when they made the cube?  It looks a lot better with some color and a mole on the roof!

Thowback Thursday

Throwback Thursday.  6 years ago we enclosed a stall in pole barn to add more office space.  Nathan and Sam cleaned up the construction dust.  Yesterday Nathan once again wiped down those same shelves and cleaned off 6 years of dust, coffee stains, and deceased lady bugs circuit 2013.

The move has begun

December 6th, 2017 by Tuff Turf Molebusters

The move has begun.  It is kind of sad since in the mid 1980’s I helped build our current barn as a teenager.  When Tuff Turf started in 1994, I rented the space and I helped build an addition to accommodate my one vehicle.  It was not until 1999 that I purchased the house and barn and had the luxury of living where I worked.  Now that we are clearing out the shop, I realize I have worked out of the same building for over 30 years!   I also am coming to the realization that I now have to drive to work again, and I have accumulated a lot of junk!

Fall Mowing Tips

November 14th, 2017 by Tuff Turf Molebusters

Mulching your leaves saves back breaking work and can be a source of valuable nutrients for you lawn and landscape. However, it can also cause more harm than good if done improperly. The key is to get the leaves small enough to break down naturally without creating too deep a layer that can suffocate turf. This process may require mowing more than once per week at the highest level your mower can be set at. A sharp blade will also help mince leaves without bogging your mower down.

Nice video of 2 moles fighting…or mating?  We don’t know the difference because we would’ve put our foot down on this behavior.   Literally.
