We offer FREE soil testing at both of our locations (Everhard Rd and Portage St NW).  Our experts will identify your lawns’ pH levels to help you grow a heathier lawn all year round.

Here is how to take a soil sample:

  • take the soil sample from 2-3″ below the surface
  • take samples from different areas of your soil – it may differ throughout your lawn
  • place samples in clean containers (label areas on containers) – keep them separated, do not mix them together

Planting and Watering Tips

Plan Before Planting

Choose the best plants to fit your landscaping.  Consider:

  • Soil quality (acidic, basic, heavy clay, etc.)
  • Drainage (standing water, dry soil, etc.)
  • Sunlight (full sun, shade, etc.)
  • Estimate the height and diameter while considering the specific plant’s rooting habit.

Planting Tips

  • The tree/shrub should be installed no more that 10 days after purchase.  While still in pot – it should be watered DAILY.
  • Dig a hole 2 times the width of the root ball and remove plastic container.
  • Amend the soil that was taken out of the hole with any of the following products:  Sweet Peet, Compost Manure, or PHC Tree Saver.  Be sure to follow the directions on the package for mixing instructions.
  • Pre-moisten the hole if the ground is dry (fill bottom of the hole with water and let soak in).
  • Loosen the roots if the plant is root bound.
  • Place the tree/shrub in the hole with the root ball slightly above ground level and fill in with amended soil, press down lightly.
  • Water tree/shrub until soil settles.
  • Add 1″ – 2″ of mulch and keep a 3″ ring of uncovered soil around the base to prevent rot.
  • For fertilizing, feed your plants in Spring and Fall.

Watering

Supplemental watering is absolutely necessary!

  • Frequent, light watering is NOT good for plants.
  • Mulching around plants helps reduce evaporation and suppresses weeds.
  • Always water in the morning.  Afternoon watering increases the chance of water loss through evaporation and watering in at night increases the likelihood of mildews, molds and other diseases.
  • Make sure the soil around the plant is dry, over-watering can kill!
  • For established plants, water once a week during hot weather.
  • Deep water large trees/shrubs the first day.
  • Saturate the soil at the base of the plant without flooding and leaving standing water.  This will ensure the water soaks into the ground all the way to the roots, which is where the water is absorbed.  The foliage does NOT have to be watered.
  • Continue watering during hot, dry spells and in late fall.

For any questions or concerns, please contact either location to speak with one of our specialists.

Step 2: Weed & Feed

Do you follow the 4-step lawn program? If so, it’s time to apply Step 2 Weed & Feed.

Step 2 of the fertilization program is a weed & feed that contains fertilizer and a broadleaf weed control.

  • It is used in the control of dandelions and other listed broadleaf weeds.
  • It should be applied in late spring, no less than 30 days after the application of Step 1.
  • For the best results, Step 2 should be applied on a day with little wind to a moistened lawn (to help the product stick to the grass).
  • Do not apply Step 2 if rain is expected within 24 hours and refrain from watering the lawn until at least 24 hours after the application.

Always read and follow the product label before use.
