Jonathan Shoe with Spinning Blades Lawn Care loves the outdoors. After graduating from UNCG with a degree in history and a brief stint teaching, he returned to his outdoor roots and began a new trade. What began as a few lawns, gradually expanded as his customers wanted him to do more. So he sought out the best in his field, and as he added services, his landscaping business grew.

This past week at PBL he shared some of his knowledge about landscape drainage issues. Rainy days can reveal a host of problems that occur when water becomes a destructive force. When not properly diverted away from homes or property, water problems ranging from mosquitoes and mold to soggy yards and flooding can ensue.

Drainage problems can also be caused by the wrong choice of pipe or improper installation. Corrugated pipe is easy to work with, but easy to damage. It can be crushed by construction vehicles driving over it, such as when remodeling or adding an outbuilding. Hard pipe is more expensive and less flexible, but provides worry-free drainage for 15–20 years, helping water to flow properly and protect your property.

Don’t get mired in the mud, drown in leaves or overgrown property! Call Jonathan with Spinning Blades Lawn Care and let his team care for your year-round landscaping needs — or introduce him to your Triad friends. Whatever season it is, Jonathan’s team is ready to help with residential and commercial landscaping, from planting flowers and shrubs to year-round mowing and trim work, fall leaf removal, grass plugging, and seeding.

As Jonathan says, “We care and it shows.”
