• Now is the time for pre-emergent crabgrass control and fertilizer for your lawn but be aware that you cannot seed and put down pre-emergent crabgrass control at the same time, your seed will not germinate.

  • As temperatures in the daytime are warming up and you are seeing a bunch of dandelions come through, spot spray them with a herbicide if needed.

  • There is still time to prune, any dead, broken or diseased branches from trees & shrubs, but consider each plant variety and which plants are to bloom this year.

  • As April 15th is typically considered the ‘last frost’ date, it is also considered a good time to seed.

  • Weed control. If you stop the weed before it gets out of the ground the lawn looks better. Control your Broadleaf weed and prevent them from producing seeds next year.

  • Hold you seeding until 4 weeks after your crabgrass application.

  • Aerating is a great and inexpensive way to be good to your lawn.

  • Seed or sod new lawns, start planting your perennials now and if you need to transplant trees & shrubs, now is the time for that as well.

  • Begin your mowing routine but be sure the first cut is the shortest, like 2 1/2" - 2 3/4" followed by 3” or higher for the remaining season to prevent brown out.

  • Make sure the irrigation system is serviced, lawns need at least 1” of water weekly and plant material need a thorough watering until established.

  • Continue to plant trees, shrubs & ground covers.

  • Consider your summer installations and hardscape work, it is the perfect time to start designing your landscape Summer dream.
