In addition to watering, your new landscape will require on-going care and maintenance. Every plants needs are different, but routine maintenance will always be needed. This is a general outline of what is needed to keep your landscape healthy and looking good.
EARLY SPRING MAINTENANCE: (February – March)
Apply pre-emergent, fertilize, prune tender shrubs, treat boxwoods, deer scram application, change lighting timer for daylight savings time, schedule your irrigation to be turned on.
SPRING MAINTENANCE: (April – June)
Prune shrubs that have already flowered, second application of pre-emergent, mulch (we recommend waiting as long as possible to let the soil dry out), turn on irrigation system, fertilize plants as needed, apply herbicide for weeds.
SUMMER MAINTENANCE: (June – August)
Fertilize azaleas with slow release, prune spring flowering shrubs (prior to July 4th), second application of deer scram, apply herbicide for weeds.
FALL MAINTENANCE: (September – December)
Schedule irrigation blow out, change lighting timer for daylight savings time, blow out beds, install deer protection (by September 1st), disconnect hoses and winterize water features (by Thanksgiving), deeply water evergreens, bring in all fragile pottery.
