May Lawn and Landscaping Tips

April showers bring May flowers! With the greening grass, the blossoming flowers, and the buds on the trees, there is certainly a lot of work to be done in the month of May to keep a beautiful lawn. Hutcheson Horticultural Company’s maintenance crews have been hard at work maintaining several business and residential landscapes in Woodstock, GA. Standard lawn and garden maintenance include the following:floral maintenance

  • Spring flowering shrubs must be pruned after their blooming is complete.
  • After the foliage dies, cut back spring bulbs.
  • Help control summer weeds with the application of a pre-emergent to planting beds.
  • Control weeds with the application of a post-emergent.
  • Trees, shrubs and groundcovers may benefit from fertilizing.
  • Add seasonal color with installation of flowers.
  • Summer flowering bulbs should be installed in May.
  • Grasses may be hydroseeded if you wish.
  • Mowing, trimming, and edging should be regularly maintained.
