What to do in my lawn and landscape in June

  • Posted on

A Garden To Do List for the month of June for our area will include the following:

*Be watching for chinch bug damage that usually starts in your grass adjacent to concrete walks and drives.

*Look out for spider mite damage on things like junipers once it starts getting hot.

*Now is a good time to plant vinca and portulaca. These are great heat lovers and easy to take care of summer annuals.

*Any of your roses that are prone to black spot should be treated on a bi-weekly basis with a product like Bonide Infuse. Don’t wait until the black spot occurs before treating!

*If you haven’t already done so, re-mulch your trees and shrubs with a good quality mulch like Landscapers Pride Black Velvet mulch or pine bark mulch.

*Check your herbs and veggies on a regular basis for any damaging insects.

*Be on the lookout for whiteflies, mealy bugs, aphids, slugs and snails. These can damage your investment in plants.

*If you have any stubborn broadleaf weeds you can spray them with Bonide Weed Beater for Southern Lawns now that temps are well above 80.

*If you are ready to apply your second application of lawn fertilizer use  Microlife 6-2-4 organic fertilizer, Nitro Phos Super Turf or Nitro Phos Sweet Green before the end of June.

    Thank you so much for the great service every time we come in. I do have a question…..2. We are just now fertilizing (2nd). This won’t damage our grass will it? Also, I have some Virginia something weed growing intermittently in the yard. Can I use Bonide Weed beater to treat it?

    Thank you!
