Winter – Spring 2012 and your lawn

2011 was very dry as many of you are very aware.  This winter has been dry and unseasonably warm. 

This is a quick reminder of plant care that you can do over this winter and next spring to ensure a better lawn and landscape for 2012.

Young grass seedlings and trees or shrubs  planted last fall, have been weakened by the weather pattern this past fall and so far in our winter.   This means, if we have a dry spring, that many young plants may perish from drought, even though the temperatures may be very nice!

To ensure the most success with your lawn and landscape for 2012,  water these plants during extended dry periods we may have this winter and coming spring.
