• Winter
    This is the perfect time of the year to get all your lawn equipment maintenance and repair work done so you are ready for spring.  Many tool and small engine repair shops may offer winter discounts during what is typically a slow time of the year for them. And if there is no snow and you’re itching to get out in the garden, winter is also an excellent time to prune trees and shrubs. Many plants have lost their leaves, making it easier to see their branches to decide which ones to remove. However, do not prune plants that bloom in the spring, as you could remove next spring's flowers. Prune these plants after the blooms fall off in the springtime.
  • Spring
    Spring is the best time of the year for planting as warm temperatures and regular rainfall makes conditions ideal for root establishment. But make sure you wait until the threat of frost is over before planting. Spring is also a great time to make sure your irrigation or sprinkler system is in good working condition, and that your lawn tools and equipment are ready for the upcoming busy season. And remember, any season is the right time to make sure your shrubs and trees are properly mulched in order to moderate temperatures, maintain soil moisture, deter weeds, and enhance the attractiveness of your yard. However, avoid mulching directly around the trunks of trees and ornamental plants, as this can lead to rot.
  • Summer
    In most parts of the country, summer means watering. To provide your landscape and lawn with the correct amount of water, learn about the specific needs for your lawn, trees, shrubs, and ornamental plants. This is important to avoid drought stress, but also to avoid over-watering, which can be as detrimental as drought. And remember, any season is the right time to make sure your shrubs and trees are properly mulched in order to moderate temperatures, maintain soil moisture, deter weeds, and enhance the attractiveness of your yard. However, avoid mulching directly around the trunks of trees and ornamental plants, as this can lead to rot.
  • Fall
    Fall is also an excellent time to plant in many parts of the country. If you do plant, make sure you water new plantings well if rainfall is scarce. Also, take care to sufficiently water your lawn as it prepares for its dormancy. Don't forget to plant bulbs in the fall, including tulips, daffodils, and hyacinth, for a bright, beautiful spring display. And remember, any season is the right time to make sure your shrubs and trees are properly mulched in order to moderate temperatures, maintain soil moisture, deter weeds, and enhance the attractiveness of your yard. However, avoid mulching directly around the trunks of trees and ornamental plants, as this can lead to rot.
