  • Spot treat perennials weeds such as dandelions, plantain and clover to control them before they get out of hand.
  • Deadhead annuals as their flowers fade so they’ll know to produce more.
  • To discourage mosquito breeding, clean birdbaths at least weekly and don’t allow standing water to accumulate. (Did you know that Allentuck Landscaping Co. has a fantastic mosquito and tick control program? Contact us for information).
  • You haven’t missed tomato time yet. Go ahead and get them in the ground before it is too late.
