    Jay Nygaard: Welcome to the Great Outdoors! My name is Jay Nygaard, I'm President and Owner of Great Outdoors Landscape and this is Dillon Hicks (ph), our project supervisor.

    Dillon Hicks: Hi!

    Jay Nygaard: We're here today in Westminster Colorado at one of our recently completed landscape projects. To talk to you about how to maintain and achieve a lush green, disease-resistant lawn. Some of the topics we'll be covering today will include quarterly and weekly maintenance, do's and don'ts on lawn care, tips for watering, fertilization, herbicide, pesticide, and fungicide control and also tips on new lawn care.

    Some of the tools you'll be needing are applicators for fertilizers, herbicides, pesticides. You'll need lawn mower and trimmer and as with any power tools, referring to the owner's manual for safety instructions is always advised. Don't hesitate to ask a professional for help.

    At Great Outdoors, we've been installing landscapes in Colorado for over ten years. We're an accredited member of the Better Business Bureau and a member of the Associate Landscape Contractors of Colorado.

    So with that, let's get started with our first segment, Weekly General Maintenance.
