April Planting Tips

April Planting Tips –

Spring is here and if you have been out in your yard surveying the landscape and starting to plan for a beautiful new spring season, you will quickly see that the trees and flower bulbs are blooming…and the weed seeds are sprouting.  Now is the best time to control the annual weeds early in your landscape, turf areas, and planting beds.

All perennial and annual weeds need to be removed – at All Season Landscaping & More LLC, we recommend only mechanical removal – not by the use of harsh weed killing herbicides for most.  Most annual weeds are easily removed at this time of year before they actually have the chance to develop strong root systems and most critically – create THOUSANDS of spreading seeds.  Perennial (return every year), weeds need their entire root system to be removed or they will come back.  It’s best to clean and rake your beds and then apply at least a two to three inch layer of new mulch – preferably shredded hardwood, cedar or pine down to mitigate new weed growth.  These mulches stay in place and shade the ground to prevent weed seeds from sprouting.  It’s best to get the weeds early before mowing season really starts.

Lawn weeds are a little tougher to control naturally, but there is a product called WOW made from corn gluten that is a natural pre-emergent weed control product for lawns.  This new product is pretty effective and kills weeds before they emerge, even before you even notice them. As it suppresses weeds, WOW! slowly releases nitrogen to feed your garden and keep it weed free!

Additional April Planing Tips

  • April 15th is typically considered the ‘last frost’ date for our area ZONE 7. It’s okay to plant annuals now, just protect new plantings from cold nighttime temperatures.
  • Begin weekly mowing routine.  But remember to cut fescue at 3” or higher to prevent brown out.
  • Mid April you can apply Milorganite to the lawn, and as an option… crabgrass preventer without fertilizer.
  • Apply new weed & feed to lawns and turf areas after weeds have appeared.
  • Seed or sod new lawns in April.
  • Define flower beds & turf edges.
  • Divide perennials & ground covers as needed.
  • Finish heavy pruning of Shrub Rose bushes.
  •  can plant container or box type Roses in April.
  • As daytime temperatures warm up, start spraying herbicides as needed. Always follow label instructions.
  • Spray Azalea, Rhododendron, Pieris & Pyracantha, if signs of lace bugs are present (follow label instructions).
  • Fertilize all blooming bulbs.
  • As bulbs finish blooming, divide & transplant as necessary.
  • April is a Great time to transplant trees & shrubs.
  • Start planting your new perennials in April.
  • Remember to water newly installed plant material & lawns, evenly & thoroughly (if no significant rainfall). Lawns need at least 1” of water weekly and plant material need a thorough watering until established.
  • Keep in mind that it’s best to plant when the soil is fairly dry. If you must plant when soil is wet, try using dry peat moss as an amendment to absorb excess water moisture.
  • Replenish or replace mulch around all  trees, shrubs & in bed areas to a depth of 3” to 4”.
  • Continue to prune any dead, broken or diseased branches from trees & shrubs, but consider each plant variety before heavy pruning this time of year.
  • Some plants require pruning before blooming or leafing out and some require pruning after they finish blooming or leafing out.
  • Keep in mind when planting…great bed preparation leads to great plant growth!
  • Service irrigation systems if needed.
  • As days get warmer, start feeding your pond fish.

Lawn Care Tips – March

Lawn Care Tips for March – Getting Ready for Spring!

Start following these tips in March to be ready for the new growing season.  Give All Seasons Landscaping & More LLC  a call Today for more SPRING TIPS and lawn care information.  We’re Manassas’ BEST Price in Town.  Let Us Help You Make The Lawn Of Your Dreams.

Getting Mower Ready: Start the new lawn-care season by taking care of the mower blade.  First, Service your mowerbladesharpeningmower for service in early spring. This helps you beat the rush of others so your mower is in tip-top shape and ready when you need to use it. Check the mower blade to ensure it is sharp.  If not, sharpen the blade to get a crisp cut when used.

Starting a New Lawn from Seed: Starting a new lawn from seed is recommended in the Fall, however, you can also do it in spring. Just don’t wait too long or until late spring to start.

ForsythiaCrabgrass Attack: Because crabgrass and other annual weeds need to sprout from seeds each year, it’s best to apply a well-timed application of pre-emergence herbicide early…this easy step can do wonders for keeping these weedy pests at bay. Spread the pre-emergence herbicide as forsythia blooms in your area start to drop.

Aerating: If your lawn doesn’t grow well due to compacted soil, in springtime — when your grass is beginning active growth — is a great time to aerate your lawns soil. This loosens the soil, allowing grass roots to reach deeper for better growth and allows the soil to absorb moisture better for a healthier lawn.

Lawn Mowing: You can begin or start mowing once your grass when it reaches about 3 inches tall. Note:  It’s best to keep most grass turf types in Region 7 at least 3 inches tall — this helps the grass ward off weeds and allows it to better withstand summer drought.

fertilizingFertilizing: Fertilizing is essential!  If you do feed your lawn a couple of times a year, than a light application of new lawn food in early spring will help you get your lawn off to a great start. Note: remember to keep it light, and use a slow-release or organic fertilizer for best results. Secret:  You can wait to fertilize until your lawn needs its first mowing…then you can fertilize it after the 1st Grass Cut.
