Following a mild winter it’s not uncommon to see early blooming, lawns coming out of dormancy quicker, and overall warmer spring days. Those are all things that we tend to appreciate.

Oasis has always aspired to build a reputation as a “company that cares.” That’s not only in regard to our own people (our team) but also our customers and our community at large. Though this has always been true, it’s been brought to light even more during the pandemic in which we’ve made a lot of changes in order to help keep everyone safe and happy.
These are just some of the ways we’ve cared for our team and our customers during the coronavirus pandemic.
Have you ever been duped by a sales job ad?
Everything about it sounded amazing from the pay to the benefits and even the hours. Maybe the ad touted six figures, a make-your-own-hours schedule, and great benefits to support you. But then when you went in for the interview—or even worse, you actually started the job—you quickly learned that all the excitement and the hope that they set you up with was a sham.
If we’ve learned anything from the Karate Kid or David & Goliath, it’s that you should never count the little guy out. Unfortunately, the same holds true for lawn insects. Some of the smallest pests can still mean big problems. In fact, it’s shocking to some people just how much damage billbugs and chinch bugs can do to their lawn when you look at their size.
Like anything else in life, you like having choices. But sometimes having too many choices can actually be overwhelming—particularly when you don’t fully understand the criteria on which you should weigh your options.
In this time of the “DIY homeowner,” it’s not a huge surprise that DIY kits are all the rage. With the Internet at everyone’s fingertips, more people are trying to figure out how to tackle tasks on their own—and frankly, that’s admirable.
However, it’s also prudent to understand when certain tasks might be biting off more than you can chew.
It’s no surprise that sales often gets a bad rap. Most people can remember multiple times that they’ve had a bad experience with a salesperson. Unfortunately, this often comes down to the way that salespeople are trained. At some companies, it’s all about making the sale and so often, it has nothing to do with providing good service.
Even the way that most sales jobs are presented may be misleading—the job is presented a certain way just to get people through the door. That sets the tone for a sneaky and slimy way of doing business.
It’s not uncommon for new homeowners to be surprised—and even overwhelmed—by just how much work goes into producing a healthy, green lawn.
It’s a lot more than just buying a bag of fertilizer at your local store and tossing it down. There are so many small tweaks and adjustments that need to be made along the way that end up having an enormous impact.

Keeping new trees and shrubs alive requires a lot more attention and care than most people realize. It might look like your plants are in fine shape, but the stress they’re under is actually enormous. It can take many years for young, new trees and shrubs to become acclimated to their new growing conditions and you want to do everything you can to support them and protect your investment. After all, the last thing that you want is to have to replace your landscape because you didn’t properly maintain it early on.
