This year’s Yard of the Month winners will be eligible for our end of the year grand prize drawing. Spring Smiles Gardeners! It’s such a beautiful time to call the South Carolina Low Country home. Everything is blooming and getting green, including the weeds. The warmer days will take care of most of them. Before buying a weed killer or a product that will weed and feed your lawn, first look at the label. The ingredient “attrazine” will kill the weeds in your lawn, but be careful because it is a root – absorbed chemical and may affect some of your desirable trees and shrubs via their root systems. Wait until late April before applying fertilizer. Before you mow, sharpen your mower blade. Maybe buy a spare blade to start the season right. After the first cutting, the sun will encourage new growth and a greener lawn. Green Thumbs Up!
