Spring Gardening Tips
Compost Pile: You’ve put it off long enough, this is a great time of year to get one started and see the benefits this growing season.
Pruning: Get out on a mild day before the leaves pop and look at the structure of your trees and shrubs and begin to shape your plants growth habit.
Weeds: Use pre-emergent where necessary per the label directions, but a top dressing of compost or mulch is more beneficial in controlling weeds.
Garden Design: Imagine your landscape with a new bed. Remove some of your turf grass that hogs all the water and plant a new variety of shrub or flower that is in all of the magazines.
Go Native: Plan to add some native plants this season. It will help you to be more in touch with the natural landscape and it will save money and effort along the way.
Plan a Vegetable Garden: Homegrown is always better than store bought. Plus this is a great all season workout, and the kids will love to be involved in the process from seeds to table.
