From May to June – Prune, Preserve and Party
Once Memorial Day comes around, our summer pattern begins to set in with longer days and warmer nights. The end of May is also the time to hit what I call the 3 ‘Ps’. Pruning, Preserving and of course Partying. You can’t do the last one, till the 1st two are complete!
Prune – Get your tools and green waste can out. Once your shrubs are done blooming, deadhead and trim. Next add a layer of top dressing. Our recommendation is to top dress with Grower’s Blend (it contains yummy organic manner).
Preserve – by preserve, I mean water. Test and check your irrigation system. Check for time of day, duration, broken lines and valves. The next best preservation step is to add a layer of bark 2″ to 3″. The bark will not all retain moisture, but also help with weed control. The nice polished look of fresh bark is a bonus!
Party – Now this is my favorite PART of all. Enjoy the fruits of your labor. Whether you are celebrating a graduation, Father’s Day, or just another beautiful day, your yard will be ready. Your home will reward you, both visually and spiritually!
