February Lawn & Garden Tips

    1. February is the best time to apply a pre-emergent on your lawns/flower beds to prevent winter weeds from germinating. Do not apply pre-emergents if you are seeding any grass this spring. We have many options to choose from. 
    2. Sign up for our annual Lawn Care Program to receive a discount, storage, & reminders for application times. 
    3. Control existing broadleaf lawn weeds with Weed Free Zone + Spreader Sticker
    4. Amend flower and vegetable beds with Back to Earth Cotton Burr Compost. 
    5. Add Soil Mender Soil Mix to existing raised bed gardens to top off for the growing season. 
    6. Stock up on cool season plants such as onion sets, onion bulbs, asparagus, & potatos for planting next month. (These always sell out quickly)
    7. Begin stocking up on seed for the growing season. You can begin seeding cool season plants indoors such as lettuce, turnips, radishes, spinach, & select varieties of herbs.
    8. Horticultural Oil Spray can still be applied to control mites, galls, overwintering aphids, etc., on trees, shrubs, and roses.
    9. Finish pruning trees, summer flowering shrubs, and hedges. Spring blooming shrubs such as forsythia may be pruned immediately after flowering.
    10. Add a house plant to your home to help control the "spring fever" for a few more months.
