Spring Flowers

Soon smaller plants and flowers will be beginning to emerge from their dormant winter stage, deciduous shrubs will begin to bud and leaf out, and wild flowers are about to peak out and bloom, giving splashes of color. Tulips will be opening up, if they have not already, with bright blooms of reds, purples, and yellows. Some flowers do not bloom until later in the year (which is crucial to a continuously flowering and colorful garden), such as peonies. However, if you cut some of the blooms from a peony bush, you can bring them inside. The warmer temperatures and water in the vase inside will coax the peony flowers to bloom sooner than usual and will give your home décor a splash of color!

Spring Clean Up

Spring is here, whether it feels like it or not! Plants will soon be starting to bloom, and it would be a good idea to clean up your yard. Some trimming on bushes can happen to shape them to give more curb appeal. You can also clean up your flower beds, removing old debris so that your plants can grow without any struggle. Your yard may have also crept into your flower beds too, so you could clean up around the beds or spade the edges. It’s never too early to make an appointment for us to come by and get you an estimate. Have us do the work and you kick back and relax your outdoor space!

Spraying for Weeds in the Fall

If you want to have a great lawn next year, the time to spray for weeds is the fall. Weeds start to grow in the fall, then go dormant over the winter, and fully emerge the next spring/summer. If you know you have an issue with specific weeds every year, such as dandelions, chickweed, or henbit, you can spray for them when they are growing back with the warm days and cool nights that fall brings. If you have any spots where the weeds grow in clusters, or areas of your yard that are prone to weeds, this is where you should focus your spraying. Make sure you use the proper herbicide, and determine the right time as well, if you are spraying pre-emergence or post-emergence.
