MULCH:
Prior to adding new mulch, you should evaluate the depth
of your current mulch and check it for any mold. If needed,
remove old excess mulch from the beds and from around the
base of the plants. Mulch should only be applied to a depth of
2". Too much mulch encourages the formation of spores, and
can smother the feeder roots of your plants. When applying
new mulch, keep the depth to no more than 2" and do not
bank mulch around the stems of your plants. Keep about an
inch clear all the way around the stems. Choose a hardwood
mulch (which will last longer); the dyed mulches (which
retain their color throughout the season) have become very
popular choices.
LAWN:
*
Rake dead thatch from lawn and overseed if your lawn is
thin.
*
Rake and loosen soil in dead areas and apply fertilizer
and seed.
*
For lawn care services, early spring is the time to apply
crabgrass preventer and a spring time-released lawn
fertilizer.
*
May is the time to apply broadleaf weed control.

PATIOS AND WALKWAYS:
*
Check your paver patios and walkways for weeds, moss
and condition.
*
Power wash if needed.
*
If there are openings between your pavers, you may
want to broom in a new application of Polymeric sand. It
brushes in easily and helps to prevent weeds.
While performing your Spring clean-up, it is also a great time
to begin to design and plan new landscape plantings and
projects! Happy Gardening!
