19 Apr Tired of the winter … us too! Tips for your home’s lawn and landscape as the tempertures begin to rise
Everyone at Schmechtig Landscapes is growing tired of the winter – so far the first three weeks of April has been one of the coldest in 130 years! Enough with the snow and freezing temperatures! We want to create new landscape designs, clean up yards, plant flowers, lay mulch, take care of your lawns and so much more! Let’s get this landscape season started with next week’s forcast bringing temps in the 50 degree range.
Some things to consider for your home’s lawn and landscape as the tempertures begin to rise:
To ensure a long-term healthy and beautiful landscape, there are important spring clean-up maintenance steps crews perform in the spring.
The most important step is the removal of winter debris, including fall leaves, twigs and winter cover.
This includes the pruning of perennials, flowering shrubs and water features.

Additionally, perennials in your garden may need to be divided and replanted.
There are necessary applications of broad spectrum, granular spring fertilizers that
will provide the plants a readily available source of nutrients throughout the growing season
and aid with new plant growth. By seeking lawn care and garden plant bed care now,
you will have a summer full of a healthy rich green lawn along with bountiful flowers.

It’s also time to plant beautiful annual displays and apply mulch or
compost to all plant beds to provide an aesthetically pleasing, nutrient filled layer across the landscape.
