Fertilization & Pest Control
Responsible for your own lawn care and landscaping? There are things you should do in August for maintenance and upkeep. We break down your August tasks by plant type: lawn, citrus, annuals, bulbs, fruit plants, perennials, roses, shrubs, trees, palms, and water garden/bog garden plants.
From oil sprays to plant products to beneficial bugs, a wide array of natural pest controls is available to the environmentally conscious homeowner or landscaper. Most are easily found online or can be found at garden centers or nurseries.
Put your grass clippings, leaves, and food scraps to work. Combine them in a compost pile or bin and mix with oxygen and water to eventually yield a nutrient-rich humus that can be utilized in your landscape as a soil amendment or fertilizer.
