Seasonal Tips


  • In order to treat the compacted soil, aerate the lawn.
  • When it is required, apply organic matter as a mulch.
  • Make sure that your mower blades are sharp at the beginning of the season.
  • Apply granular fertilizer that has a slow-acting formula. (If you fertilized your plant in the fall or winter, this step is not required.)


  • Find out the warning signs of an infestation of bugs and eliminate them before they have a chance to settle in.
  • You should water your lawn once a week if there is a lack of rain or if the soil is poor. In any other case, water only when there is a delay of more than ten days in the occurrence of rainfall
  • Immediately after noticing weeds and bare spots, you should treat them.
  • Midway through the season, you should sharpen the blade of your mower once more.


  • The trees and shrubs that have been mulched and watered thoroughly before the first frost
  • However, make sure not to overwater! In September and October, it is reasonable to anticipate that plants and shrubs will have a slightly brown appearance.
  • Apply a layer of mulch made of organic material, or mow a layer of leaves that have fallen into the lawn.
  • You should fertilize your lawn around Thanksgiving in order to encourage the growth of strong roots during the winter.
  • In order to prevent the grass from becoming matted under snow, it should be cut a little shorter just before winter.


  • Burlap windscreens should be placed around less hardy plants if they are located in areas that are exposed.
  • In order to prevent the weight from breaking the limbs of evergreen trees, you should use a broom to gently brush snow away from the trees.
  • It is important to have tree limbs removed as soon as the weather permits if they are broken by ice or snow. Damaged trees are more likely to become infected with disease.
  • The placement of markers along the perimeter of your lawn will assist you in preventing damage to the grass when you are shoveling snow.
  • Steer clear of walking on lawns that are covered in snow or ice.
  • To prevent runoff from causing damage to plants, it is important to use only non-salt de-ices for sidewalks and driveways.
  • In addition to causing damage to grass, perennials, and shrubs, salt prevents plants from absorbing water, which is essential for their survival.
  • It is important to check any perennial plants that are growing in soil that has been thawing to see if the roots are emerging from the ground. They should be pushed back into place with care, and mulch should be added if they have.
