Mulching and Pruning tidbits….

Lawn and Landscape Tips

Mulch

Mulching is a great way to beautify your landscape, but it is also very beneficial because it conserves moisture and reduces weed growth.  Typically, mulch is installed in the spring, however some may opt to have their beds re-edged and remulched in the fall with a light coat of fresh mulch.

Pruning

Prune spring-flowering plants (azaleas, rhododendrons, forsythia, lilac) after they flower.  Other midsummer and late summer flowers may be pruned in the fall. 

Another practice is to prune ornamental shrubs and trees in the late fall or even winter time.  When the plant is dormant this causes less stress on the pruned area and allows for proper healing.
