Landscaping Update

Springtime is here.  We had a very wet winter season and with the onset of warm weather we will be facing the dilemma of weed control. 

The first phase of weed control has already begun for the District.  Our method is to put down pre-emergent in flower and shrub beds starting in April.  It is an herbicide.  It typically lasts for 3-5 months.  It prevents weeds from sprouting each season.  From May through August, we spray to treat for weeds and utilize hand-pulling of weed clusters.  Post-emergent assists with the new weeds that are either blown in or that sprout in outlying areas. 

Aeration and the first fertilization of manicured turf areas occur in April.  A second aeration and fertilization will occur in the Fall. 

All Operations and Maintenance plans are dependent on weather patterns and can be altered by wind, precipitation, and temperature.  To review the Districts full Operation and Maintenance plan please click on the link Operations & Maintenance
