  • Spring lawn care is simple, do not fertilize

    Pay no attention to the man behind the screen, or should I say on the screen.
    Commercials for lawn fertilizers show up on the airwaves this time of the year promising the perfect lawn if you apply this product or that. 
    In fact, keeping a healthy attractive lawn is not that complicated if you maintain good habits; and this does not necessarily include spring fertilization.
    I think we would all agree that an attractive lawn is one that has a thick stand of turf with good color and is relatively weed free.

  • Mulch matters

    Mulch has become a landscape staple, almost to a fault when it is over applied, smothering roots and girdling trunks.
    When done properly it can help to suppress weeds, retain moisture and moderate temperature. These things can be achieved using a variety of materials, but which type of mulch suits your needs best?
    Predominately, we use organic materials for mulching. Organic mulches include plant- or animal-derived materials like wood chips, pine needles, tree bark, grass clippings, composted manure, and worm castings.

  • Plants and insects come alive in spring

    The hostas and daylilies are barely poking out of the ground and I’m already noticing signs of slug activity.  
    The primrose and lungwort have been munched on; bagworms are dangling from the pines and the next generation of borers are stirring beneath the bark getting ready to emerge and reproduce; the larvae of the holly leaf-miner are ready to become flies.
    So, what do we do? For starters, go outside and take a good look around. Examine your plant material and look for any evidence of insect activity.
