SPRING BRINGS THE OPPORTUNITY TO GET AHEAD OF WEEDS
The dirt is soft. On a warm day, dig out bothersome weeds. Cut out deadwood in shrubs and cut out any volunteer trees trying to grow in your bushes. Don't remove leaves from flowerbeds yet! Wait until the end of March. We can still get freezing weather for a while.
SUMMER UPKEEP TIPS:
There are a few easy things to make your home look much better!
1) Use a weedwacker or pull the grass in the street gutter in front of your home.
2) Do the same for grass growing in sidewalk cracks.
3) Have your lawn service (or you) EDGE along your sidewalk.
These will make a big difference, quickly!
About those weeds in your front flower beds or other places in your front yard:
For anyone who has contributed to FHHO the suggested contribution or more,
I will help you for TWO HOURS, FREE to weed your front yard and learn what
needs to be done to keep it looking good. You will need clippers and a weed
digger (dandelion digger) when I come. Contact me here: Jan Milic (Chelsea)
Sometimes it takes years for a homeowner to "get the hang of it." Former
apartment dwellers may not even notice that they have a problem. Look at
the front view of your yard and let's make it look great!
