Landscaping Questions Answered.

Is it the right time to fertilize my lawn?

Yes, use fertilizer on your lawn. Make sure to use it after the second or third time the grass is mowed. Also, most importantly, let the grass grow, and then cut it to 3-3½ inches. When grass is tall, it helps promote deep roots, which makes the lawn hardier and more resilient.

Should dead grass be raked in the spring?

The best time to rake dead spots is when the lawn is starting to turn green again around April, so you can see the areas that are actually impacted. Raking when most of the grass is still brown makes it difficult to determine what is dead or healthy.

It’s Time for Spring Plants, Shrubs & Vegetables

To make your landscape more robust and flowering throughout the next few months mix shrubs and plants with your trees. Shrubs are ideal to add a new element to your property, either green or flowering. A few ideas to consider are azalea, forsythia, and boxwood. Or choose a shrub with bright berries after its flowers fade, such as viburnum. And don’t forget herbs and vegetables. Now is best to plant dill, parsley, cilantro, mint, rosemary, thyme, and sage, as well as vegetables – lettuce, kale, broccoli, peas and spinach. They like this weather and can stay outdoors permanently.
