Spring Time

Spring time is the best time to lime, fertilize, seed & aerate your lawn. Don't know what they do? Lime helps level the PH in your lawn. It should always be around 7.0. Fertilizing helps to keep the nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium in your lawn to help it grow nice and green. Lime will also help your fertilizer along. Aerating your lawn helps it breathe, and helps loosen up the soil. If you don't know the levels of your soil, you can have it tested, or do it yourself. They sell for a few dollars at your local Lowes or Home Depot.

Other things on the "to do" list:
Trimming your shrubs and trees not only helps keep their size and shape, but also aids in helping them breathe and from being crowded.

Mulching is usually done around this time of year. The color of the mulch you choose can bring out the other colors in your home, plants, and trees, making your lawn look beautiful.

Stoning can be done in the place of mulch, if you don't like mulch. There are many different colors of stone to choose from. As with mulch, the color you choose can bring out other colors of your home, plants, and trees.
