Happy 2023!

Updated: Mar 15

Welcome to 2023! As we embark on a new year, it's time to kickstart our landscaping efforts with some essential tasks to ensure vibrant, weed-free lawns and beds come spring and summer.


Despite a brief chilly spell, our winter temperatures have mostly been warm, making it the ideal time to apply pre-emergent treatments.

 

To combat pesky weeds, we recommend a few standout products:

  • Anderson's 18-0-4 Barricade (prodiamine .426)

  • Hi-Yield Crabgrass Preventer containing Dimension (dithiopyr), available in granular or liquid form

  • Bayer for Southern Lawns 3 in 1 (indaziflam)

 

It's essential to read labels carefully, as some products may not be suitable for use near waterways or ponds and can be toxic to fish. While these treatments aren't organic, we also offer organic fertilizers like Medina to promote a lush, green lawn without harmful chemicals.

 

Cleanup is crucial following any bout of freezing temperatures. While some trimming may be necessary, it's wise not to cut back too aggressively in case of further freezes. Once the weather warms up definitively, removing dead plant material and applying fertilizer will give your plants the best chance of thriving.

 

Now is the perfect time to plant hardwood trees, giving them a head start for the upcoming growing season. For guidance on suitable tree species for our region, Texas A&M offers a helpful guide tailored to your specific county and preferences.

 

In addition to weed control and tree planting, enhancing your landscape with winter color and fresh mulch can rejuvenate your outdoor space after any losses from the freeze. Don't forget to water before and after any forecasted freezes to protect your plants.
