31 years of low maintenance landscaping

Myers Landscape Nursery



March is time to March out into that muddy landscape and have a look see!

Posted by Mark Myers on March 6, 2011 at 3:16 PM

From the number of recent phone calls, I can tell you are sensing the arrival of spring and its tug to attend to your lawn and landscape.

The simplest and most useful thing you can do right now is take a walk! The best fertilizer for your garden is your own foot prints. And you probably will leave a few foot prints as you take a walk during this spring thaw! Of course the magic is in your awareness and attention to your landscape.

I take a notepad and pen for these walk-throughs, because I always find more to do than I can remember later. I even take a digital camera, nowadays – they are so handy!   Email me some pics if you have questions. [email protected]

If you feel you do not know what to look for, let me offer these tips or my services to do this with you or for you. Spring will get busy for the both of us soon enough, so if you think you need our help, please call or email soon.

Things to look for:

1) Now is the time to do some spring cleaning. Deadheading is removal of spent or dead foliage especially from herbaceous perennials. You probably have some of these plants and if you did not clean up the old foliage last fall, now is the time. Fungal spores and insect eggs overwinter in this debris and if you remove it now, you will eliminate a lot of trouble this season.

2) You may have done an excellent job of fall leaf cleanup, but guarantee the leaves are back. They are not hurting your flower beds yet, but do remove them from lawns as soon a possible. Accumulations of wet leaves along edges, fences, corners and depressions will smother lawn turf if you do not clean it up pretty quickly.

3) Speaking of the lawn, Indiana Gardening magazine proclaimed 2010 the Year of the Crabgrass! It is all dead now, as evidenced by brown and bare patches in your lawn! Rake in some good quality grass seed and a starter fertilizer. Grass seed can be a complex choice dependent on many factors, contact us for best recommendations for your situation. If things are too bad, we can overseed and topdress you entire lawn.

4) It is a great time to prune! Prune away any obviously dead or winter damaged branches. Now is the time to rejuvenate that hedge or overgrown shrub!

5) Watch for bag worms! These are a new pest to our area. I am not talking about the tent caterpillars that will show up a little later this spring. Bag worms are insects that spin a cocoon like structure that includes enough plant leaves that it resembles a brown pine cone about 2” long right now. Many of these harbor hundreds of eggs this time of year. As you can imagine, hand picking these will eliminate thousands of bugs from your plants this season. You can learn more about bagworms here:

If you are not sure what to look for, give me a call (574) 457-5354 or schedule an economical site evaluation. Prevention is much more effective and economical than control or replacement, and the earlier you get started the better for you and your landscape!
