Due to the mild winter, most pansy plantings are doing quite well. Some of the credit of this is due to the mild weather in January, but our ongoing winter maintenance program helps ensure regardless of whether that your pansies are healthy through the winter and into the spring.
We promote and upon approval perform moss control during the winter on most lawns we maintain. Moss is very aggressive due to our dark, wet winters. How remark amended program is treating wants in the winter, which we just are wrapping up, followed by again in the early spring, which will begin in April.
Speaking of bark dust, we highly recommend rebark-dusting sites every other year. Bark dust decomposes and its water saving and weed control properties quickly fade after that. Bark is a great moisture control and weed control agent, and makes your property look dramatically better when maintain on an every other year basis.
As wet as it is outside now, irrigation season is only a month or two away. We have been busy for the last month and will continue through April to get our system serviced and ready for the irrigation season. We have started irrigating as early as April 1, but normally irrigation season starts sometime in May. If you see the sprinklers on in the next month, it is likely because our staff is on site tuning up your system for the season.
With the nicer weather recently, some overwintering broadleaf weeds, specifically dandelions, have begun to bloom. Our program for broadleaf control starts as weather improves next month. If you see bloomers, know that they are about to be treated if not have been already.
Winter has been busy and spring will be busier. We're excited for the weather to improve as well as the plants to return to life and all the work that we've done this past winter to shine with beautiful landscapes the spring and summer
