Tips of the Week
Trim spring flowers, including bulbs that have yellowed.
Avoid broadleaf weed killers at this time. Once the weather warms to 85°, these products can damage your lawn.
Plant warm season vegetables.
Be sure to mulch new vegetable gardens and flower beds. Mulch helps hold soil moisture and it prevents the soil from eroding away or from crusting up. Mulching can double your water savings! Every time you water a plant that is not mulched, you're probably watering twice as often as a plant that has been mulched.
