Add a Splash of Color with Spring-Flowering Bulbs!

Spring 2014 may seem like a far off thought but right now is the perfect time for planting spring-flowering bulbs (tulips, daffodils, crocuses, and hyacinths). These bulbs will bloom in the spring to show off their beautiful colors. Last year we had an enormous amount of positive feedback from our clients who purchased bulbs. Many of them expressed what an “eye-catcher” they turned out to be. Take a look for yourself!

Because of this positive feedback we have decided to again offer the following special:

  • 50 of any one set of bulbs *delivered and planted* for only $99!*
  • 100 of any one set of bulbs *delivered and planted* for only $149!*
  • Need more than 100?—just add $1 for each additional bulb over 100 (sold in 50 bulb increments)*

OK—you’ve decided you would like to purchase bulbs. You’ve decided how many you want. Here comes the fun part–at the following website: www.springdisplays.com –using the password: shovel –you can shop and decide which bulbs will best compliment your property.

We have extended our ordering deadline to Sunday, November 10th! You may place your order by sending us an email: info@divlandscape.com or calling (865) 272-9669. Please give us your contact information and let us know which bulbs and how many. Please contact us if you have any questions and cheers to a colorful spring!

*Please note that a few select varieties may not qualify for the quote listed above. You will be advised of this before confirming your order.

Powered by Propane


We are excited to announce an initiative to convert many of our commercial mowers to propane-power.

What does this change mean for us? It means no more gasoline. The majority of our fleet will be powered by the same propane you use for your gas grill at home. Since propane is a clean burning fuel this equates to longer engine life, no fuel contamination, and less engine maintenance.

What does this change mean for you, the customer? By reducing our operating and maintenance costs we’ll be able to deliver a better value. We’ll also be reducing our carbon footprint by up to 70%!

We have are already begun the conversion process and hope to have it completed by early 2014.  So, if you happen to see a large aluminum canister on our equipment– it’s not a beer keg….it’s propane!

Slow to Grow

Over the past several years we have been increasing our use of plant growth regulators. These regulators help slow the growth of hedges, shrubs, and groundcovers in landscaped areas. Plants that are treated will require less trimming which means less emissions from power trimming equipment. This also equates to a reduction in fuel consumption and green waste accumulation. Look at what growth regulators are capable of:

Staying Safe in Winter Weather



Winter weather is here. This afternoon snow began to move across much of East Tennessee making driving conditions difficult and leaving many without power. Tonight temperatures are expected to drop into the low 30s which will increase the chance of ice on roads and sidewalks. Snow and ice removal is one of the many services that we offer our customers. We’d like to remind you of some important safety tips. Remember it’s always best to avoid these conditions if at all possible.

  • When driving: slow down for wet, snowy, or icy conditions. Remember you won’t be able to stop quickly so leave a good amount of space between your vehicle and any objects around you.
  • Use caution when approaching bridges, intersections, and shaded areas.
  • Before you leave, make sure to remove as much snow as possible from your windshield, turn signals, rear window, headlights, tail lights, etc.
  • Drivers in Tennessee can learn more about driving conditions by calling 511 or visiting http://www.tn511.com

During winter weather conditions we often put down ice melting applications on many of our managed properties. While these applications do a great job of melting ice and snow they do have one possible drawback that not many people are aware of. Calcium chloride and magnesium chloride (chemicals commonly used in ice melt applications) can leave behind an oily residue that can become slippery on smooth floors. These ice melts tend to stick to ones feet and are commonly tracked inside buildings. It is important to wipe your feet thoroughly to reduce this risk, especially if you are walking on a tile, marble, or hardwood floor.

We hope these tips will help keep you safe during these conditions. Don’t forget to stay informed about any changes to weather and/or driving conditions before heading out. Stay safe!

Introducing 100% Paperless Billing!

Given that we are a company that operates in the green industry we are always looking for ways to reduce waste and help protect the environment. Towards the end of last year we shared an exciting new payment option that is now available to all of our customers. Most of our customers are already aware of our ability to email invoices as opposed to traditional mailing (sorry USPS). We have now introduced an online payment option available to our customers, thus making the transaction process 100% paperless. How does it work? It’s simple:

  1. You receive your invoice via email.
  2. In your invoice you will see the following link: Pay now via PaymentNetwork
  3. After clicking on the link you will be prompted to set up an account with Intuit’s PaymentNetwork. You will need your bank’s routing number and account number (must have a valid U.S. bank account).
  4. Verify your invoice is correct and click Send Payment. Your account information will be stored securely on Intuit’s PaymentNetwork for all future payments.

*please note: this is not an automatic draft, therefore you will need to log-in each time  you receive your invoice to verify the invoiced amount is correct and confirm your payment.

Here’s the best part…this service is FREE! No buying stamps, no licking envelopes, no wasted paper, and most importantly–no additional costs to our customers!

We hope this new payment option will not only help eliminate wasting resources but will also provide a more convenient method of payment to our customers. We invite you to take advantage of this new service!
