With Mother’s Day right around the corner, the soil here in Southern Ohio is starting to warm up and dry out. Make sure when you plant your annual flowers, the soil has been amended and you apply slow release starter fertilizer in and around your planting holes.
Our crews are busy treating broadleaf weeds, controlling insects, installing sod and dodging raindrops. May is usually one of our best growing months of the year. Normal rainfall of 1″/week, along with moderate temperatures of 65-75 degrees, helps our lawns, landscapes and flowers develop roots for the long summer ahead.
You should have your mower height raised to 3″ by now and your irrigation system should be serviced and ready to go by June 1.
