Guest Blog: Let’s Get Busy

Our friends at Sunshine Landscape Design have some suggestions for March landscaping in Texas!

Landscaping in MarchHello friends, now is the time to get down to business with your landscaping. In our previous blog article, we talked about getting ready for the busy season. We are not quite there yet, but we can get started on some items.

Start by mowing your lawn and applying your preferred fertilizer.  Remember to apply the correct fertilizer for your lawn; you don’t want to burn your grass.

Apply a weed killer to your lawn, and right now is the perfect time since most weeds are actively growing.  Most fertilizers will have a weed chemical in them (weed & feed).  Again, make sure you choose the correct type of weed & feed for your grass.  If you are unsure of what type of weed & feed to use, asks us. We are glad to help.

Feed your fruit, veggies, bushes, shrubs and trees. They will be hungry after that long winter.

Since the weather is not too hot and not too cool, start pulling those plants that you no longer want or move them around to different spots in your lawn.  When doing this, ensure there will be plenty of sun for those that will need it.

Re-mulch all the beds. If budget doesn’t allow for re-mulching everything, then turn your existing mulch and add just a few bags where it’s needed most.

These are just a few tips to get you started before the busy season begins.  Remember, we are always here to help you and are more than happy to assist in any maintenance needs. Just give us a call and we’ll make sure to get you squared away.  The key point here is to get you ahead of the game and allow you more free time for yourself and your family… a message from your friends at SUNSHINE LANDSCAPE DESIGN.
