February Is Time To Prepare For Spring

Hopefully our snow season is over and with the groundhog predicting an early spring, we'll be getting some warm days to get outside. Now is a great time to start preparing for spring.Here is a checklist of some of the best chores to perform:

  • Pick up and dispose of leaves and winter debris 
  • Finish dormant pruning of trees, such as Crepe Myrtles
  • Apply pre-emergent herbicide to the lawn to help prevent crab grass and broadleaf weeds
  • Access winter damage to plants and prune or replace as necessary
  • Check your seasonal equipment now before the repair shops get overwhelmed
  • Sharpen the blade on lawn mower and other pruning equipment
