April in your yard...
Take care of your hedges!
Hedge trimming is effective in the Spring or the Fall, depending on the hedge and it's state of health. It is important to trim by hand to keep the hedge looking natural and to avoid taking off too much, which can lead to browning and disease.
Your lawn's worst enemy
Contrary to popular belief, weeds and moss are NOT your lawn's worst enemy. They are the enemy's offspring. The real enemy is soil compaction and it will weaken your lawn faster then you can say oh no. The best way to prevent your lawn from becoming compacted is aerating your lawn at least once a year. If you forgot to aerate last fall, now's a great time- just make sure to mark those sprinkler heads :)
Early April is the perfect time to power rake the moss out of your lawn. You won't be damaging tender, growing grass plants, and after a wet, sunless winter there is likely plenty of moss to get rid of! Avoid the use of harmful chemicals, as they are only a temporary solution that are dangerous to you, your loved ones and your plants.
