Fall is here! We are now scheduling fall cleanups. A fall cleanup is essential for the health of your landscape and surroundings. The GroundMasters fall cleanup is the best way to get your yard back in shape from the hot summer and prepare for the cold winter ahead. There are many aspects to a proper fall cleanup, they include; General Cleanup – removal of all debris from parking areas, mulch beds, lawn areas, etc. De-thatching – thatch (power rake with machinery) all lawn areas, blow down, and removal of all thatch and debris. Aeration – The practice of improving the movement of air, water, and nutrients into the soil by making holes or slits in it. Specialized machines are commonly used to remove plugs of soil or cut slices in the soil. Shrub/Tree Trimming – professionally trim/prune. Fall is also a great time to plant seed, trees and shrubs!


GroundMasters Corp. takes the prize at the Topsfield Fair The Topsfield Fair attracts almost 500,000 visitors every year. The fair, one of the oldest in America, was started in 1818 by the recently formed Essex Agricultural Society. The first annual fair was a cattle show held by the society on October 5, 1818. The president of the society, Timothy Pickering, was awarded a first-place prize for the “superior performance of his plow.” The Topsfield Fair ran every year following that first show, with the exception of three years during the Civil War and three years during World War II. The fair today features carnival rides, games and concert events in addition to the more traditional attractions, such as exhibitions of livestock, rabbits and cavies, crafts, horses and produce. The fair also hosts the All New England Giant Pumpkin Weigh-Off. The current record-holding pumpkin for 2011 weighs 1668.5 pounds.
