Seasonal Tips

SPRING:  March, April, May

* Mulch beds early in the season.

       (we recommend maintaining 3" min. of mulch in beds)

* Broadcast a light application of 10-10-10 

      fertilizer in perennial bed areas.

*  Sharpen All Mower Blades

*  Most spring-flowering shrubs can be cutback

      and fertilized after-flowering.

*  Deadhead perennials after flowering to 

       extend bloom-times.

*  Apply pre-emergent to lawns in March to

       prevent a crab grass invasion.

*  Spray weeds in lawns as they appear.

SUMMER:  June, July, August

*  Finish pruning and fertilizing spring-flowering shrubs after blooming.

*  In early-June, the second application of pre-emergent should be applied to lawns.

*  Continue to spray broadleaf weeds as they appear in lawn.

*  A second light application of 10-10-10 over

      perennials areas along with deadheading 

      as needed throughout the summer.

*  Look for insect-infestations on plants and

      spray accordingly.

*  Weed beds frequently to keep weeds from 

      flowering and re-seeding.

*  Water deeply and consistently throughout

      the summer months.

      and shrubs.
