Outdoor Ice Rink

Last year Berns Landscaping Services teamed up with NiceRink™, to bring our clients ice rinks right in their own backyards. We had some very happy clients who were able to make winter memories that will last a lifetime.

These seasonal ice skating rinks are a great addition to any home and the perfect way to make lasting memories with your family this year. Our experts are ready to help you decide on the perfect size and location for your home. Once these two items are decided we will install your very own ice skating rink to enjoy all season long.

Make Your Pumpkin Last Longer This Halloween

Make Your Pumpkin Last Longer This Halloween

Many families spend time together every October picking out pumpkins to carve for Halloween. Carving is usually done shortly before October 31st, not allowing most to enjoy the glowing jack-o-lantern it has been transformed too. However, with a little bit of know how and extra work you can extend the life of your carved pumpkin!

Pumpkins are protected by their skin, once carved you are breaking the protective barrier the skin creates. Once carved organisms such as bacteria, mold and fungi begin to attack and start breaking down the pumpkin. Oxygen in the air also begins to dehydrate the pumpkin. Below are some simple steps to follow to help slow down the dehydration and rotting of your pumpkin.

How To Preserve Your Pumpkin

  • Step 1: Clean Your Pumpkin! Remove all excess dirt from the surface of your pumpkin.
  • Step 2: Create a bleach solution, by mixing 1 tablespoon of bleach per 1 quart of water. (Mixing in a spray bottle will be best) Use this to spray down the surface of your pumpkin, the bleach will kill the bacteria and mold on the pumpkin.
  • Step 3: Once you have carved your pumpkin spray all cut areas along with the inside to kill any other bacteria and mold.
  • Step 4: Once your pumpkin has dried from being sprayed (About 20 Mins), rub petroleum jelly on the carved surfaces and interior of your pumpkin. This will act as a protective barrier from new bacteria and help slow down the dehydration process.
  • Step 5: Keep your jack-o-lantern out of direct sunlight and out of below freezing weather.

If you have followed all of these steps you should get at least 1 week of enjoyment out of your jack-o-lantern, if not a little longer. Save your bleach spray and use it on your pumpkin daily for extra protection.

Every winter, deer cause millions of dollars in landscape damage. This damage can be prevented. The deterrent we use is winters longest lasting deer repellent on the market, giving customers 6 months of protection. One spray as early as October will protect shrubs into the early spring. There is no need to reapply in the snow and ice of winter, unlike similar sprays that only last a few weeks.

The active ingredient in this application is thiram, a strong taste-deterrent that will even protect shrubs and trees from starving deer. You may have heard of thiram sprays leaving a heavy white residue on plants. These white sprays are unattractive and can stand out amongst the natural browns and greens in your landscape. Our application spray comes with a colorant built in. This helps tone down the look of the thiram as it protects your plants all winter long.

Berns landscaping is happy to offer deer repellent services to our customers. If you live in an area where deer frequently cause damage to your landscaping, give us a call today! We will be more than happy to give you a free quote over the phone and answer any questions you may have!
