Spring Yard Planning

Spring Yard Planning

Spring is here! Time to get your yard planning done so you are ready to enjoy the summer in a beautifully groomed lawn. Knowing what you want for your flowers beds and ordering your spring flowers. Doing dormant prunning and clearing out dead plants. Pruning is a horticultural practice that alters the form and growth of a plant. Based on aesthetics and science, pruning can also be considered preventive maintenance. Many problems may be prevented by pruning correctly during formative years for a tree or shrub. The late dormant season is best for most pruning. Pruning in late winter, just before spring growth starts, leaves fresh wounds exposed for only a short length of time before new growth begins the wound sealing process. Another advantage of dormant pruning is that it’s easier to make pruning decisions without leaves obscuring plant branch structure. Pruning at the proper time can avoid certain disease and physiological problems.

Mowers should be seasonally tuned making sure to remove and replace any gas left from last year. Grass cutting should resume end of March early April depending on the weather.
