Spring is Just Around the Block
And just a little planning now will help us serve you better then
As the weather cools and fall sports heat up, spring is probably one of the last things on your mind. But now is actually the best time to plan next year’s lawn and landscape needs.
Why bother with all that now?
There are a lot of reasons to try and “get things settled” for next year’s lawn and landscape care. Here are a few:
Easier. Right now things are fresh in your mind and easier to remember.

Please give us a call with any questions or ideas you may have. And working together, you can have a beautiful and trouble-free landscape next year.
There’s Still Time to Fertilize
But the Window of Opportunity Will Be Closing Soon!
Even when visible top growth slows (or stops) for the season, your turf, trees and shrubs are still in
need of nutrients. They might seem inactive, but your plants are actually building up nutrient reserves,
setting down new roots and strengthening their old ones.
Plants use nutrients over the fall and winter months for two things: to repair any damage they may have
suffered during the growing season, and to prepare for new growth in the spring. An application of
fertilizer will help this natural process along.
Some of the direct benefits you’ll see from a heavy fall feeding include:
• Improved winter hardiness. Plants suffer less from drying winds and severe weather because of better
• Earlier and darker green-up of established lawns in the spring. Thin turf areas will become denser
with improved color thanks to increased root expansion and larger nutrient reserves.
• Improved blooming in flowering trees and shrubs.
• Stronger growth in new trees, shrubs and fall-seeded lawns. Faster and more complete establishment
through the winter will promote better top growth in the spring.
• An increase in natural resistance to insect pests and diseases.
To get maximum benefits from fall feeding, your lawn, trees and shrubs should be fertilized as soon as
possible (if they haven’t been already). It’s one of the best ways to improve the looks, health and value of your landscape!
