Here’s What To Do And Not Do In The Garden During April

Posted by San Diego Landscaper on Wednesday, 5 April , 2017
Summer garden

The month of April can be a tricky time in terms of what to do in your yards and garden. We’ll talk about it in this issue.

  • Now is not the time to prune trees, hedges or shrubs.
    The winter months are the best times to prune your trees, hedges, and shrubs. Right now, they’re in their growth period. This is the time the buds will begin to swell.
  • Inspect your irrigation system to make sure it’s ready for the summer months.
    This is a good time to take stock of which plants absolutely need water during the summer months and which ones can get by with just a little.
  • Thin out the fruit on your fruit trees so that they are at least 6 inches apart.
  • Be on the lookout for earwigs.
    While they like to hide in cracks and damp areas, they love to feast on seedlings and flowers. They may startle you by darting around once seen, but they are not dangerous to humans.

You can minimize their impact by removing decaying vegetation.

  • Be meticulous in minimizing or getting rid of standing water so that you can control mosquitos.
  • This is a perfect time to plant tomatoes, either into the ground or into large pots; just make sure they have lots of room to grow. If they’re in the ground, place them about 3 feet apart. If you’re planting in pots, go with one plant per 15-gallon nursery can.

Juniper Landscape Company was on-time,... Read More

I was always out there cleaning up the leaf litter or be fined by the HOA. I hired Juniper Landscape Company. They came out and actually listened to what I wanted. They... Read More

    Juniper Landscape Company has been fantastic. Before them, we ran through three or four other lawn and landscape maintenance companies who did spotty and sometimes outright poor work, were not always reliable and who ended up creating problems for us in a variety of ways. That experience led us to subscribe to Angie's List... Read More
