“It is my responsibility to keep up with our ever-changing society to ensure we continue to recruit top talent. In order to do that an organization must adapt to change. A new generation is entering the workforce and changing up the game. Companies must be able to switch gears and realize that just because certain things worked in the past, doesn’t mean those things will work in the future.”

Make your garden welcoming to pollinators.
Making your garden welcoming to birds, bees, butterflies and other pollinators is good for your plants and good for the pollinators.
From the aesthetically lovely to the downright spooky (bats, we’re looking at you!), these creatures are vital to our watershed, food systems, and terrestrial wildlife and are worth as much awareness as we can give them.
Did you know that approximately 75% of all flowering plants rely on animal pollinators and over 200,000 species of animals act as pollinators? Of those, about 1,000 are hummingbirds, bats, and small mammals. The rest are insects such as beetles, bees, ants, wasps, butterflies, and moths. In fact, you can thank bats next time you drink a margarita—they pollinate the blue agave from which tequila is made, and thank bees for helping you get going with your morning “cup of joe.”
Lambert’s pollinator stewardship program is an added benefit of our company’s organic garden management philosophy, which guarantees that our clients’ gardens thrive as pollinator-friendly, biodiverse ecosystems. Our approaches include using nontoxic pest management products and applications, complementary planting and maintenance strategies, and designs that are not only remarkable for their intrinsic beauty but also welcoming, functional, and value adding.
Our clients tell us that they appreciate the health and well-being this approach offers their families, and we are fairly certain the birds, butterflies, and bees that feast on natural food sources and healthy garden habitats are happy as well.
The proof is in Lambert’s lead-by-example approach: our clients’ gardens are beautiful, robustly healthy, sustainably irrigated – water use is improved via organic approaches to soil health – and invasive pests, including mosquitos, and plant disease and pathogens are biologically controlled.
For more than three decades, Lambert’s and its tree services arm, Moore Tree Care, have maintained healthy plants and trees without using synthetic fertilizers, pesticides or herbicides. We believe that the coordinated use of organic techniques and naturally-sourced materials can successfully inhibit and/or prevent most all pest, disease and fertility issues in the landscape while providing a lush, biologically diverse environment for bees, birds, bats, and good bugs to thrive.
The ecology of Texas and the location of Dallas on the migratory map for Monarch butterflies and hummingbirds means we have to take special care to protect pollinators and promote sustainable solutions for all living elements in the garden.
And we’ll do that by starting in your own backyard.

Being smarter about water will change your garden for good.
Drought conditions in the Dallas and Fort Worth areas have been relieved with the recent rains associated with El Niño, but the long-range outlook for the next decade or more suggests that North Texas will remain on the dry side.
Our current El Niño weather pattern could be replaced this fall by La Niña, in which cooler Pacific temperatures lead to drier conditions in North Texas. In fact, the latest Climate Prediction Center forecast said there could be a 50% chance of La Niña forming between September and November, which could signal a return of drought conditions across Texas.
So what does this mean for Dallas area homeowners concerned about their gardens, lawns and landscape water conservation?
The immediate solution can be found in the ability of digital technology, combined with smarter approaches to planting, to monitor, conserve and use water better.
To ensure that your garden sustains its resilience throughout every season and weather challenge, there are six proactive things we recommend you do:
1) Be strategic and conservative with thirsty plants.
2) Position plants where they will benefit from what they need in terms of shade, sun and resources.
3) Ensure that plants and trees grow deep roots.
4) Mulch to cool the soil and keep it from drying out.
5) Nourish with a mixture of minerals, organic matter, and the myriad micro-organisms that support plant life.
6) Invest in digital irrigation control technology so that water is measured, monitored, and in sync with the precipitation patterns, community mandates, and the needs of your garden.
Dallas-Fort Worth tops the nation’s fastest-growth list. As the fourth-largest metro area in the country and the largest in the southern U.S., the rapid increase of new homeowners creates a significant ripple effect in the increased demand for residential landscape water.
Getting your irrigation system in top working order now is a priority that, if left untended, could cost in water use and plant loss. With a few more weeks of climbing temperatures, irrigation crews across town will be stretched thin handling water emergencies. Like air conditioning, ensuring your cooling system works before a heat wave is far better – and cheaper – than waiting for someone to fix it when it’s a triple digit day.
Remember, too much water is no better than too little. When systems run in the middle of a rainstorm or spray water runs off the curb line to an awaiting storm sewer inlet is money going down the drain.
If you haven’t climbed aboard the technology bandwagon, you’re missing a tremendous opportunity. Ease of use, water savings, and reduced water bills are just three of the many benefits realized by our SmartLink wireless irrigation network users.
Call Lambert’s now to find out how weather-based digital technology can add to the heath, vigor and value of your garden, and ease your water bill. Schedule your appointment with our licensed irrigation specialists to ensure water is being delivered where you want it, when you want it, and in just the right amount.
