Spring is rapidly approaching and there are many ways you can prepare your landscape for the upcoming Spring and Summer seasons.

When you prune correctly, you properly encourage health and flowering. It is essential to prune during the proper season. This is generally in the Spring or Fall, depending on plant variety.

Fertilizer provides the necessary nutrients for plants to grow, flower and produce fruit. Applying fertilizer during the appropriate season and for the plant type is key.

Pre-emergent is used to prevent germination of weed seeds. Best used in the Spring & Fall.

Mulch is a groundcover that helps to preserve moisture, improve the health of soil, reduce weed growth and add to the visual appeal of an area. It is typically replenished one to two times per year.

Transplanting perennials in the Spring, when it is cool or rainy prior to the plant blooming is the best time of year.

Aerating your lawn helps to control lawn thatch and soil compaction. The Spring is the best time to aerate your lawn. An aeration followed by an over-seeding and fertilization is very beneficial for your lawn and will help to bring it back after all the dry weather we have received.

Contact us if you would like a free quote on one of these services. We look forward to hearing from you!
