2nd Week of July

  • Annuals, Perennials, Shrubs, Trees, and Lawns
    • Continue your basic maintenance.  Water, Fertilize, Stake, and Train.
    • Watch Ivory Halo Dogwoods for drying up.  The leaves will curl, get black spots, and fall off if they do not receive adequate moisture through the hot months.

    • Make sure new lawns and sod are watered to keep them green and growing until they have matured.

    • For a one time per year pruning of Arborvitaes, Yews, and Junipers do it now after new growth has expanded.
