July Gardens

After record breaking rainfall in June, this years weeds are out of control; both in the lawn and throughout the garden beds.  Even though it is getting warm, lawns are not stressed because of all the wet weather.  A second application of weed control is a good idea and can now be applied on turf.  As for your mulched areas, Round Up can be used to control most weeds.  When used properly, Round Up brand Post Emergent Weed Killer is very safe.  Its soil deactivated and will not leach.  This product  is much more effective that hand pulling weeds because it is a systemic and kills the root system.

June Garden Tips

 There’s always something to be doing in the garden.

The dog days of summer can wreak havoc on your turf and drought intolerant plant material.  Water new plantings and turf every day unless it rains.  Continue watering the next day after the rain stops.  Cutting your lawn one half of an inch higher will allow the blades of grass to collect more morning dew.  Pruning this time of year not only keeps your plant material looking well kept but also gives a great opportunity to notice any unwanted pests or diseases.

This is often the time of year when people apply mulch to their garden beds.  Mulching helps to prevent weed growth and retain moisture around new plantings.  Use a granular, pre-emergent herbicide such as Preen to enhance weed control before applying mulch.
