Spring Gardening Checklist

Checkbox-imagePLANT COLOR

An ideal time to plant colorful, summer-blooming shrubs like spirea, hydrangea and easy-care shrub roses. We also swear by Fertilome Root Stimulator and Elements, on organic Fertilizer.

Checkbox-imageELEVATE THE ART OF CONTAINERS

With a pot trellis, containers turn colorful vining plants like mandevilla, moonflower, black-eyed susan vine or morning glories into vertical art.

Checkbox-imageGET HAPPY WITH YOUR SPACE

Checkbox-imageENJOY MORE BLOOMS

Pinch off dying/dead flowers to make room for new ones and help things along with Jack’s Petunia Feed.

Checkbox-imagePRUNE LIKE A PRO

The perfect time to prune early spring flowering trees and shrubs like lilacs (once their flowers have faded or fallen). Find the imaginary center of the shrub or tree, then visualize the general shape that builds around it. You don’t have to be perfect, just trim any wayward branches right above one or more healthy leaf buds.

Plant Placement On-Site

An at-home visit that focuses on where to plant and why. Perfect for when you plant or before our crew comes out to install.

Why offer a Plant Placement On-site service? Because there’s so much more to planting than digging a hole. Especially when you’re investing in quality trees and shrubs.

This is why we’ll come to your property to assess the area (Is there existing root structure from a previous tree? Is the area low-lying and wet?), exposure (Would you benefit from a tree(s) that provides a wind break? Do you need a tree that thrives in the shade?), property layout (How close is the space to your neighbor’s yard? Will there be branches that extend into another yard or near power lines?).

The Basics
