Let’s talk about green. The color of the landscape? The stuff in your wallet?
Either way, it starts with something pretty simple: Plant something.
Nothing but good things happen when you do.
A beautiful landscape can add 15 percent to the value of your home (and help you sell it faster too).
A few well-placed trees can also cut down on your energy costs.
Plants can even improve your health and make your neighborhood friendlier.
So spend a little time with us and discover all the great reasons you and
the rest of New Jersey should go out and PLANT SOMETHING!
Plant perennials, pansies, ranunculus and primroses. If temperatures drop below freezing at night cover the ranunculus and primroses with an old sheet. Primroses like shade. Cut back lavender, fertilize lilac and lavender with lime. Divide late blooming perennials.
Trim hedges. Keep an eye out for pests or diseases. Address garden problems immediately to prevent further problems. Have your soil’s ph tested before starting any lawn care.When forsythia is in full bloom fertilize the lawn and apply crabgrass control. Apply grub control only if needed.
Enjoy flowering bulbs and don’t cut back foliage. It supplies food to the bulbs for next year’s flowers. Mulch late April, keeping mulch away from the base of the trees or shrubs. Apply pre-emergence (Preen) to flower garden beds to prevent weeds. Continue to plant cool-season vegetables.
