Spring 2014

Spring is finally in site! We are gearing up for another great season and are anxiously waiting for winter to be over. With numerous spring services ahead we would like to take the time to talk about a few of these.


The timing of pre-emergent herbicide is crucial to ensure the appearance of a lawn throughout the course of the year. Pre-emergent applications prevent crabgrass germination prior to soil temperatures consistently reaching 55 degrees. As the soil temperatures rise, we will also start to see broadleaf weeds. Keep in mind, turf pre-emergent does not prevent broadleaf weeds in the lawn areas because most of these weeds already exist but are dormant through the winter months. Throughout April, we will be applying herbicide to control broadleaf weeds which include dandelions, henbit, chickweed, plantain, and clover. During spring lawn applications a lower rate of nitrogen is best so excessive top growth of the grass is not promoted. The turf will grow by itself just fine in the spring, heavy rates of nitrogen will only cause problems such as thatch and weak root systems. 


Mulch installation is another service we provide this time of the year for our clients. Mulching may seem like a simple task but it is important to take into account several factors before and during the installation of mulch. We see so many beds and tree rings in the area with an unnecessary amount of mulch. Some may think this is ok but too much mulch can harm your plant material. So during spring cleans ups and bed edgings, landscapers should take into account how much mulch is installed in their beds. If there is mulch piled around trunks of trees and crowns of plants, it should be removed or pulled away and cultivated in the bed. We should look at mulching as a top dress of a maximum of 2”. Remember, the mulch from the previous year hasn’t just disappeared and will still provide you with water retention and weed control. We are looking to refresh when mulching and if managed properly with cultivations through the season a top dress is all that is needed. 


We should all look to enjoy spectacular spring blooms this year! Since the Midwest did not experience extended warm temperatures this spring, flower buds did not break early and in turn did not get stunted by late freeze. The ornamental trees and shrubs will be able to flower to their fullest potential and will hopefully help us put the long cold winter months behind us.
