Check Out These Spring Landscaping Tips!

Wondering where to start when it comes to your spring landscaping? Well, we just made life easier for you with this list of tips!

Getting a Head Start on a Healthy Lawn

  • Remove thatch in older lawns and dead moss in lawns that have been treated with moss control (approx. 10 days after moss control)
  • Lime your lawn about 2 weeks before fertilizing
  • Fertilize with high quality, organic fertilizer
  • Ongoing weed and dandelion control

Getting Your Flower Beds in Order

  • Fertilize your shrubs, trees, hedges, vines, perennials, roses, and small fruits
  • Plant new shrubs, trees, pansies, perennials, herbs, roses, and small fruits
  • Use manure, compost, bone meal, and peat moss
  • Water your flower beds often
  • Weed on an ongoing basis
  • Buy summer flowering bulbs, tubers, and roots, then plant as per the instructions on their packages

Vegetable Garden Duties

  • Add compost or manure to the areas where you will be planting roses, vegetables, strawberries, and rhubarb (Note: Don’t add manure where you will be planting potatoes because that can cause them to scab)
  • Ideas for veggies to plant in April: carrots, cabbage, beets, broccoli, green onions, lettuce, onions, turnips, and parsnips

Tidy Your Decorative Yard Ponds

  • Get your pond in tip top shape with a thorough cleaning
  • Purchase water plants at your local garden centre


  • Consult with your local garden store or research online to know when to prune the greenery that you have in your yard
  • Call a professional landscaping company like ATC Landscape to get the job done for you, as pruning can be quite overwhelming
