David The Real Estate Man

»Posted by on Nov 11, 2017 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

There was once a man named David Emami West Linn. He is 28 years old, working as in a company called Croft Enterprises. David is one of the top salesmen of this real estate firm. He has been giving out his all ever since has gotten into the company in the United States. He comes from a family of 2 with him being the oldest and his youngest sister studying at school. David relatively lived a normal life, but everything changed on September 8.   

This was supposed to be a normal Wednesday for David, woke up at 7 am, ate breakfast, got ready, and went straight to work. Although when he got to work, he was in for a surprise. When he pulled up in his parking space that he has been using for years now, was a man, standing in a black suit, tall, bulky man, wearing dark shades. The only thing going through David’s mind was, “is this a movie?”, “what is going to happen to me?”, “do I get out of the car?”. Out of mere curiosity, David got out of the car slowly and approached the man with as much courage as he had. To David’s relief, the man in the suit spoke first, “Mr. Emami, my name is Dwayne, and I need to talk to you about something urgent.” This was when David immediately regretted his decision of getting out of the car. Thinking to himself, “If I run now he might not catch me.” Although that was not the case as Dwayne was already clutching his arm leading him to a heavily tinted SUV.   

It was an all black SUV that was so tinted that he could see his trembling self in the reflection. Before David got to the door of the car, about ten steps away from it, Dwayne says, “Wait here, Mr. Emami.” Now, this was the real chance for David to get out and bolt but due to his curious self he stayed and waited for what was to come as he was intrigued by this interruption to his daily routine. David was a very organized man. Prim and proper was the best way to describe him which is why he was very curious about this new experience that he was about to embark on. Dwayne then appears out of the car, signaling David to come closer. David makes a nervous walk to the car, and as he approaches the door, it bursts open, and to his surprise, he sees a dog. A small dog sort of like a toy poodle but could not tell for sure.   

Then he saw the man holding it, dressed in an all gold suit. Everything about this man was gold, from his teeth to his shoes and every accessory a man could have on his body. David nervously stuck out his hand, and the man accepted the shake and introduced himself. His name was Mr. Billabong and spoke in a very deep English accent. To David’s surprise, all Mr. Billabong wanted was a quote on the best real estate available on the market as he was planning on getting a vacation house in the United States.   

After this whole conversation, it changed David’s whole career as a salesman as he sold 100 houses on that meeting alone and this experience is one that he will never forget.

Lawn Mowing Tips for a Healthy Lawn

»Posted by on Sep 11, 2017 in Healthy Lawn | 0 comments

Mowing is not an easy task. Each time you cut your grass, the health or success of your lawn will lead to either failure or not. Correctly mowing the lawn will make a healthy, thick and drought-tolerant lawn. When incorrectly mown, your lawn will struggle to survive. The health of your lawn will depend on how you mown it. It’s not good to have a dull and unhealthy lawn because by then it means a bigger job for you to do. For your landscaping and mowing needs, call Matt at http://www.actionjacksonlandscape.com/. Below are some of the tips we gathered from them to successfully mow a lawn.  

 Healthy Lawn

  • Avoid Scalping  

Scalping the grass means cutting it too short. This mistake will make your lawn vulnerable to weed infestation and diseases. The turf tends to be sparse and weak which exposes the soil. The weeds successfully penetrate the lawn which has an exposed soil, and it will allow the seed to take root. You shouldn’t cut the grass too short because a sparse lawn lets the sunlight reach the seedlings of weeds and let them grow. If you keep on scalping the grass, it will make the lawn more susceptible to serious damage from high temperature, or worse, drought.  

  • Sharpen Mower Blades 

To get the best result when you mow the yard, sharpen your mower blades. When it’s sharp, it cuts the grass cleanly. Then the blade is dull, the grass is tear up, jagged and have uneven edges. The tears of the grass create openings for diseases and pests. When you use a dull blade on your lawn, brown or whitish hue develops at the tips of the grass. Sharpen the mower blades during the mowing season. To reduce blade damage or dulling, avoid mowing over stones or thick branches.  

  • Adjust Mower Height 

Throughout the grass’ mowing season, adjust the height of the mower. For example, to allow the grass to grow longer during summer, adjust the cutting deck higher. If the grass is tall, it shades the soil that slows water evaporation and prevents weed growth. Taller grass has deeper roots too, which allows the lawn to withstand a drought.  

  • Mow When the Grass is Dry 

It is ideal to mow the lawn when the grass is dry. When you mow a wet lawn, it won’t yield the best results. It creates an uneven cut because it has a tendency to fall over and clump together when you mow. Also, avoid mowing in soggy soil to avoid tearing up the grass or creating wheel ruts.  

  • Mow in Shade 

Pruning or trimming a plant causes stress to it, grass is not different. Mowing will create a stress on the grass. It is ideal to mow the lawn on the cooler part of the day because if you do the mowing when the heat is on its peal, the grass will lose more water and recovers slowly. Or, you mow when the shade is on the lawn. The grass will lose less water and is quicker to recover.
