The February checklist for your yard.
*Starts your seeds for the cool season vegetables & flowers.
*Check your plants and tress for damage. During the cold months, animals can damage your plants when trying to escape the cold.
*It’s a good time to start looking for pots and planters. Some stores still have last year’s merchandise to get rid of, and the bargains can be strong.
*Cut back your liriope and other perennials now. It will get them ready to grow in the spring.
*Prune your dormant trees and shrubs, but leave those spring bloomers alone.
*It’s a good time to plant those larger B&B bushes and trees.
*Give your holly bushes a hard prune this time of year.
*Check on your evergreens and make sure they’re not drying out.
*Don’t forget the birds! Keep feeding them and make sure you have fresh water available.
*If you still have leaves in the yard, get rid of them!
*Check the mulch and if it needs to be refreshed, remember that 3 to 4″ depth rule.
*If it’s dry, water your plants. Pay particular attention to any new plantings.
*Prune your berry bushes.
*The end of February is the time to start your crabgrass preventer application.
*If these aren’t items you want to tackle, then give us a call.
