Garden Clean-up and Spring Mulching
– Beds are a MESS in early spring. Old mulch is caked and cracked. Much of it is washed or worn away. The beds are filled with sticks, leaves, and debris that have blown in over the winter. Last year’s annuals/perennials need to be removed or cut back. Clean up your beds BEFORE the growing season begins! Lastly, scarify all of last year’s mulch or remove it altogether if it’s been accumulating for several years. Once the beds are prepped, you’re ready for this spring’s new layer of mulch. The Lawn Depot Garden Center has a wide array of premium bulk and bagged mulches and soils. We’ll deliver it to your drive or you can pick it up at the store. Be sure to apply a garden pre-emergent (Treflan or Garden Weed Preventer) with your new mulch, to keep weeds at bay.
Protecting Shrubs, Bulbs, Perennials from Hungry Varmints (including Bambi)
-Now that the gardens are beginning to come alive with new spring growth, and even though we’ve had a very mild winter, our varmint friends are hungry and active, out each night and wreaking havoc with our prized shrubs and plants. We’ve had a number of people coming in already because their bulbs have been dug up. Protect all vulnerable plants above and beneath the soil with REGULAR applications of repellent sprays or granules. The Garden Center has several product lines to choose from. Don’t let these furry visitors get ahead of you.
Bird Food, Feeders, etc.
-Come in and check out our complete line of products to attract all kinds of birds (including hummingbirds) and repel squirrels.
