Thinking About Spring Gardening? 5 Things To Consider For Spring Gardening Success

April 8th, 2014

1)DON’T walk on lawn or in garden while it is still wet:  you will do more harm compacting the soil than good.

2)DON’T rake lawn until it has REALLY dried out:  you will disturb the healthy roots more than you benefit the dead roots.

3)DON’T let the lawn companies aerate your lawns until after Easter:  aerating = good; machine tearing up your lawn = bad.

4)DON’T forget to take a close look at trees and large shrubs for ice damage.

5)DON’T forget that grass seed doesn’t germinate until the temperatures are between 16 and 20 degrees F.  Spreading before that is called ‘feeding the birds’.
