Our Commitment To Service Is Always Growing!


Want a fresh look for your landscape? Spring is the time to choose new plants for the garden. Order perennials, trees, and shrubs for spring planting.

If you are willing to do a little work yourself you can prepare a new plant bed by clearing the planting area as soon as soil can be worked, removing sod or weeds and debris. Spread a 4-inch layer of compost or well-rotted manure and any amendments over soil, and cultivate it to a depth of 10 to 12 inches with a spading fork.

Feeding your plants, trees and shrubs to help give them a bust from the long winter months, now is the time to fertilize.  Apply a balanced fertilizer such as (6-6-6 or 8-8-8) around trees and shrubs when new growth appears. Spread high-acid fertilizer and pine-needle mulch around acid-loving shrubs like azaleas and camellias. Begin fertilizing perennials when active growth resumes.

It is also a good time to tune up your tools, this way everything is ready when things start growing. Make note of what is missing, and order tools for the new growing season.

Your lawn mower and leaf blower ar essential tools for your landscape. Now is the time to send them in for servicing or if you have the right tools, sharpen the mower blades yourself. Change the mowers oil, install fresh spark plugs, and lubricate moving parts if necessary. Clear the lawn of winter debris, and look for areas that need reseeding before mowing.

Remove dead, damaged, and diseased branches from woody plants. Thin and trim summer-blooming shrubs such as butterfly bush, hydrangea, and most roses, except for old-fashioned once bloomers. Prune cold-damaged wood after plants resume spring growth. Prune spring-blooming shrubs and trees after flowering.
