What is Don Bird’s (Unit 23) secret to a beautifully healthy looking garden?  It takes more than a green thumb to make the plants and grass look great.  Here are some steps Don recommends:

 

1.   Early Spring (March or April) – Fertilize

2.   Summer – No need to fertilize as Gelderman is scheduled to apply fertilizer

3.   Fall – Weed and Feed

4.   Water your grass once or twice a week depending on the weather (1 inch or for approximately one hour)

5.   If you would like to give your plants a boost, apply compost around each plant in the spring. 

6.   Apply grass seed in the spring or fall to thicken your grass.
