APRIL
  • Apply broadleaf weed control for summer weeds (Clover dandelion, etc.) Follow label directions for usage and restrictions.
  • Spray weeds in beds and natural areas with a non-selective herbicide. Follow label directions.  Apply only if weeds are visible. It is much easier to continue this practice all season, when needed, then to wait until mid-summer when weeds will be much larger, causing you to use more chemicals and more of your time
  • Spray Azaleas, Pyrocantha, Pieris, and rhododendron in late April for control of lacebugs.  . Follow label directions. You may need to make 3 applications 7-14 days apart.
  • When new growth begins on trees and shrubs, check for presence of aphids, spider mites, or chewing insects. Spray with a recommended control based on insects and plants.  Follow label directions.
  • Continue mowing fescue lawns to no less than 3” in height. Browning of grass will occur from moisture loss if grass is cut too short.
  • Fertilize warm season grasses (Bermuda / Wiregrass), begin planting annuals, perennials, and summer vegetables. If creating a new planting area, incorporate fertilizer, soil conditioners, and compost before planting for the best growth.If you choose to apply water-soluble fertilizer, (i.e. Miracle Grow) remember to re-apply every 2-3 week.s
  • Continue to plant trees, shrubs, and groundcovers.
  • Remember to water with a slow, deep watering during growing season.After new areas are planted and mulched, apply pre-emergence weed control on top of mulch to prevent summer weeds form germinating.
  • After blooming, prune and fertilize Azaleas with a fertilizer formulated for acid loving plants.
  • Baseball season starts, be sure to enjoy this great American sport!If it seems to rain every time you try to go out side, don’t fret--- remember that April shower bring May flower!
