Now that you've got your garden in and growing....its time to start thinking about freshening up that landscaping! Need some mulch? Some new perennials? Perhaps a load of dirt to do some leveling? Give us a call or stop in, we would love to help your yard become the nicest on the block!
Got a few questions for us? Here are the answers to the most common ones we've had so far this year:
Q: What do I do about dead spots in my yard from the road salt!?
A: More than likely the grass is "burnt"...either till it under and reseed or put down new fresh dirt and reseed.
Q: What do I do about all the night-crawler bumps in my lawn?
A: If you ask AK the best method is "get them on the end of a hook and drown them up at Lake of the Woods"...honestly there isn't a whole lot you can do.
Q: What can I use to fertilize my lawn?
A: There is not a good answer to this unless we know more about what problems you are having. Give us a call or stop in and we can talk about it.
Q: What can I put in my flower planter so I don't have to use so much dirt?
A: To make sure you have good drainage start with charcoal in the bottom, then add a couple of inches of pea-rock. That will give you a little weight if you are worried about wind tipping it. You can also use styrofoam or pop bottles to take up space and not add weight for large planters
Q: Do you have any maple trees?
A: Sure do! BUT....maple trees do not really like our soil. They might grow well for a couple years and just when you are thinking they are safe and going to make it, they end up dying. You can give it a shot we just want you to be aware. That's why there are not many around our area.
