Spring Time is Planting Time

Despite the cold nights that linger during the month of March, it’s time to begin thinking about spring time projects. In our opinion, one of the most enjoyable projects to undertake in your yard is planting new trees, shrubs, and flowers. The change to the landscape is immediate, and planting flowers is certainly much more enjoyable than raking leaves or pulling weeds. There are several tasks to be completed before we start putting new plants in the ground. These tasks include:
  1. Soil tests to determine if the soil is capable of supporting the new plants
  2. Application of organic matter, compost, and nutrients to prepare the planting area
  3. Carefully select your plant species based on available space, moisture, and characteristics like leaf color, flower color and fragrance
  4. Install an irrigation system capable of supplying the plants with moisture at the correct time and in the correct amount

Fortunately, in Colorado we have the luxury of Colorado State University and their Soil, Water and Plant Laboratory. The lab on the campus in Fort Collins offers a variety of services including soil testing. Submission forms are available online. Simply go to http://www.soiltestinglab.colostate.edu/ and click on the “Horticultural Application for Gardeners.” Print your submission form and pack it with your soil sample.

It is vital to put the extra effort into preparing your planting site and choosing the right plant. A well prepared planting will establish new roots quickly and the results will last for years to come. The Arborists at Mountain High are available to help with the planting process and decision making. Don’t hesitate to call us with any questions you may have.

The Arborists at Mountain High work hard to bring our clients the best services in Colorado. Our research and development of new services keeps us at the forefront of the Green Industry. Be sure to reach out to us with any concerns.

When to Feed Your Lawn

Feed your lawn this March & April

The most important thing you can do for your lawn is to make sure it gets properly fed. A well-fed lawn is healthier, which means it has a better root system to combat heat, cold, drought, mowing, foot traffic, and other stresses. If you put your lawn on a regular feeding schedule, it will look lush and green and be better able to handle the adversities that both man and Mother Nature throw at it.

Also remember, a healthy lawn can cut down on summer cooling bills. A scientific study by the University of Mississippi showed the following:

  • "The plants in a lawn transpire (evaporate water through the leaf surface) to cool themselves. In addition to cooling themselves off, the blades of grass keep the immediate area cool as well. About half of the heat energy directed to a turf area is eliminated by transpiration."

  • "When the temperature of the sidewalk is 100 degrees Fahrenheit, the temperature of the adjacent average lawn remains near 75. This cooling may last into the night, with studies showing a 13-degree cooling at 9 p.m."

In simple terms, this means rocks and other xeriscaping features hold in heat while turf areas help to cool. This cooling effect can have large implications to energy bills since the cooler temperature of the lawn means less heat surrounding your house.

Best time to start fertilization in the Front Range:
Early Spring (March - April)

Kentucky bluegrass and rye grass yards are only semi-dormant over the winter. This is why they still keep a greenish tinge. As these yards ‘wake up’ in the spring, they start looking for food to grow and revitalize for the summer. Feeding your lawn in the spring strengthens roots and gets it off to a good start before the heavy growing season. Deeper roots also means the lawn is better able to handle drought conditions.

Spring is also the perfect time to apply pre-emergent to reduce crabgrass and other annual weeds and grasses. (Be sure to water it in well if we don’t get enough moisture.)

Let Mountain High take care of your lawn’s needs. We have programs for all lawns and the experts to do what is best for your turf.

from Craig Little
Craig LittleThe drought conditions of the past two years have taken a toll on our plants. Make sure your landscape’s irrigation system is working properly. Your system should supply only the amount of water needed to keep plants healthy. Any extra water is not only a waste of money, but also a waste of one of our most important resources.
