Early spring is a crucial time to prepare for the growing season. By tackling these maintenance tasks, you can set the stage for a healthy and vibrant growing season.

Here are the essentials that we are completing, and important items for the homeowner to consider:


πŸƒ Clean Up Debris: Remove any dead leaves, branches, and other debris. This helps prevent pests and diseases and allows for better air circulation and sunlight penetration.
πŸƒ Prune Trees and Shrubs: Prune dead or damaged branches from trees and shrubs. You can also prune summer-flowering shrubs before they start to bud.
πŸƒ Divide and Transplant: Early spring is an ideal time to divide and transplant perennials. This helps rejuvenate overcrowded plants and promotes healthier growth.
πŸƒ Weed Control: Remove early spring weeds before they have a chance to establish and spread. Hand-pulling or using organic mulch can help suppress weed growth.
πŸƒ Soil Preparation: Amend soil with organic matter such as compost to improve soil structure and fertility. It’s also a good time to rais the soil pH: Dolomite limestone is a natural source of calcium and magnesium carbonate, which helps to neutralize soil acidity. 
πŸƒ Mulching: Apply a layer of mulch around plants to conserve moisture, suppress weeds, and regulate soil temperature. Organic mulches like wood chips or shredded leaves are ideal.
πŸƒ Fertilization: Apply a balanced, slow-release fertilizer to encourage healthy growth. Choose a fertilizer specifically formulated for your plants’ needs.
πŸƒ Inspect for Pests and Diseases: Keep an eye out for early signs of pests and diseases. Remove any affected plant parts and consider using organic pest control methods if necessary.


🌿 Aeration: Aerating the lawn helps alleviate soil compaction and allows air, water, and nutrients to penetrate deep into the root zone. 
🌿 Overseeding: Overseeding thin or bare patches helps fill in gaps and promotes a denser, healthier lawn. Choose a high-quality grass seed blend suitable for your region and lawn conditions.
🌿 Fertilization: Apply a slow-release nitrogen fertilizer specifically formulated for early spring use. This helps kickstart growth and provides essential nutrients for healthy turf development.
🌿 Application for moss control: Iron sulfate is typically applied as a granular or liquid product. Granular formulations can be spread evenly over the lawn using a spreader, while liquid formulations can be sprayed directly onto the moss-infested areas.
🌿 Dethatching: If your lawn has excessive thatch buildup (more than 1/2 inch thick), consider dethatching to improve airflow and water infiltration. This can be done using a dethatching rake or mechanical dethatcher.
