Weekend Warrior Checklist

It’s early March, time to take advantage of mild temperatures and sunshine when you can!

 

Overseed thin or bare spots in your lawn. As your lawn freezes and thaws seeds will bury into the soil and germinate when it’s time to sprout. Wait until  seeds germinate and grow a full 2 inches before applying weed killers. We recommend a turf type tall fescue.

 

Create a lush existing lawn that lasts with the Fertilome 3 step Lawn Program.

Step 1: Apply Fertilome For All Seasons Lawn Food Plus Crabgrass And Weed Preventer with Prodiamine in March/April. Prodiamine gives your lawn just the right amount of nutrition it needs for healthy growth this spring.

Step 2: Apply Fertilome Lawn Food Plus Iron in September and again in November for fast greening, strong roots, and long term stability.

 

Plant trees:  Trees make great focal points for yards. The period where trees lie dormant is actually the best for planting new trees. To find the right tree, stop in and talk with one of our Nursery professionals or browse our selection online at www.bowerandbranch.com.

 

Apply Fertilome Tree & Shrub Systemic Insect Drench with Imidacloprid on trees, shrubs, and roses for 12 months of protection from the worst insects!

 

Prune: Winter is at an end, meaning that it’s time to prune deciduous trees. Improve trees’ appearance and health by ridding them of unhealthy limbs and extra sprouts. When it comes to fruit trees and grapes, these plants could use a good pruning after the worst of winter weather seems to have passed but before blossoms begin to grow. As long as a variety tends to bloom after June 1, pruning now won’t be an issue.

 

Pre-order roses: For our full list of specialty varieties go to www.delhigardencenters.com/products/rose-varieties/.com  Email our Nursery Manager at kerryg@delhifgc.com

 

Unsightly views are easier to spot before trees and shrubs fill in this spring. Take a good look around your yard and identify any trouble spots. If you need suggestions about how to replace your trouble spots with curb appeal, just stop by and we’ll happily make recommendations. Pictures are helpful.

 

March is also an excellent time for planting bed maintenance – edging, mulching, leaf clean-up, fertilizing, and applying weed preventer.

 

Cut back Ornamental Grasses:  If you haven’t, you’ll be very happy you did so before they begin to emerge.
