March Allentuck Landscaping Co. News
Spring has hit with full force and things seem to be moving at warp speed. This is just a quick, down and dirty blog post to update everyone on everything that is going on at Allentuck Landscaping Co.
Spring Clean Ups and Mulching
Our Crew Members returned at the beginning of this week and we are in Spring Clean Up and Mulching mode. It is great to see our returning team members and to welcome new ones aboard. Shaun and Mark are busy laying out our schedule. It you have not received a Spring Clean Up proposal and would like one, please contact us today.
Gardens for Grade School Grants
This is a new initiative to encourage young students to spend more time outside and to explore gardening. The contest is open to any elementary school in Montgomery County and Frederick County. Whichever school gets the most votes will receive installation of a cedar raised garden with soil mix and their choice of a butterfly garden, vegetable garden or herb garden. We even have a gardening lesson plan prepared!
The schools that have been entered so far are:
Ronald McNair Elementary School in Germantown, MD
Dufief Elementary School in North Potomac, MD
Fallsmead Elementary School in Rockville, MD
Barnesville School or Arts & Sciences in Barnesville, MD

As anyone in the Washington DC area knows, the Cherry Blossoms around the Tidal Basin are a big deal and something we look forward to seeing every year. There are not too many harbingers of spring better than seeing this spectacular show of blooms.
This year, the National Park Service has moved up the peak bloom period up nearly two weeks earlier than normal. They expect the trees to be at their best from March 18 to March 23. The cause of this is the expected nearly record warm temperatures. Mark your calendar to enjoys this event.
