Spring Lawn Care Tips


Healthy Landscapes Feature: Healthy Soil; No Plant-Damaging Pests or Disease; Few Weeds; Healthy Grass, Trees, Shrubs, & Perennials.


With snow on the ground, it’s difficult to imagine a lush, spring green lawn awaits under that blanket of winter. But we all know, as soon as the snow melts, spring will burst forth in a frenzy.

Be prepared to create a healthy lawn and landscape with these simple tips!

Eliminate Crabgrass Now: For the DIY, apply Award Crabgrass Preventer: a pre-emergent product designed to target germinating seeds before new shoots can emerge from soil. Because the ground is not frozen under all of this snow, there will be a very short window of opportunity to apply Crabgrass Preventer to your lawn. Apply as soon as the snow has melted!  

If Crabgrass or other weeds are already established in your lawn, we offer two safe and effective herbicides for use on your lawn: Bayer Advanced Crabgrass Killer for Lawns and Ferti-Lome Weed Free Zone. Either of these products could be used to broadcast over a grassy expanse, or for spot-spraying weeds within a lawn. To effectively eradicate crabgrass, spray early at the first sign of the weed emerging.

For a thick, healthy, dense lawn: Top-dress your lawn with Coast of Maine’s Organic and Natural Black Earth Lawn Soil to enrich your soil and aid in moisture-retention. Also, spring is a great time to overseed your lawn to repair damaged grass and fill in bare spots. We offer exceptional grass seed varieties for full-sun, sun/shade, or dense shade lawns. For smaller areas, use quick and easy Rapid Repair Pods to treat dog spots, weed patches, or mole mounds. 

Lawn-safe products to eliminate existing weeds and crabgrass


Early-Spring – before your fruit trees leaf out – is the best time to prune your orchard trees and apply insect or disease control products.

Springtime Pruning for Fruit Trees: Late-winter to early-spring is the best time to prune fruit trees. Pruning prior to leaf-out allows the tree time to heal any wounds before seasonal insects and diseases become prevalent. Pruning early also reduces stress on the tree.

To start: Prune any dead, damaged, or diseased branches. Then, prune any rubbing branches. Also, prune any double leaders by choosing the healthiest leader and cutting the other leader to half its height. When pruning, be careful not to remove more than 25% of the total tree each year.

Fruit Tree Pest and Disease Control: Many fruit-tree safe products recommend treatments in early-spring to eliminate any dormant, over-wintering insects or diseases. For best results, apply insecticides and fungicides early, prior to high insect or disease infestations. The first application can be made when branch tips show new green tissue, or when blossoms are in bud form before opening to flowers.

We offer a variety of natural products for organic gardening, safe for use on vegetables and fruits!

Natural products for organic gardening – safe for vegetables and fruits!


We’re all anxious to get into our gardens this year. It will soon be time to amend the soil in your vegetable gardens, get those veggie starts planted, and rejuvenate your perennial gardens!

Protect your early-blooming bulbs and perennials from hungry critters: Deer and rabbit damage is the leading cause of complaints we hear in the garden center. Take action early to protect your tulips, daffodils, crocus, iris, daylilies, and hostas! For natural alternatives for animal repellents, check out the I MUST GARDEN product line.

If you have been using one variety of animal repellent, consider trying a new scent this year to prevent deer and rabbits from browsing on your favorite plants. Plantskydd spray or granulars, I Must Garden Spice or Mint sprays, and Liquid Fence spray or granulars are all quality products to try within a rotation.

Soil Amendments: If your perennial gardens or vegetables gardens could use a little conditioning, come in and check out our new soils by Coast of Maine. We have a huge selection of organic, nutirent-rich potting soils, composts, soils for raised bed gardens, and soils for vegetable gardens. Work these soils into your garden beds or use as a top-dressing to existing gardens to give your plants extra nurishment.


Natural Animal Repellents help protect your plants from hungry critters!

We’re here to help you with all of your lawncare, landscape, and garden needs!

Happy New Year!


As 2022 comes to a close, we wanted to thank you all for a wonderful season! Here are a few of our favorite highlights:

We were finally able to host our Open House / Customer Appreciation Day again, and it turned out to be our most successful event to date! We enjoyed gathering with old and new customers, friends, family, and our dedicated crew, while celebrating with live music and good food! We look forward to sharing another fun day with you in 2023.

The new Foam Daddy Machine added a whole new level of entertainment for kids of all ages! It was a huge hit at KJ’s New North for the Balsam Lake Labor Day festivities, and a fun addition at many birthday parties. If you’re looking for a new thing for a graduation party, birthday party, or a family celebration in 2023, call us at 715-485-3131 to rent the Foam Daddy!

We created a new Christmas Tree display and sales area next to our waterfall truck! The new site must be much more visible and accessible, because every tree sold!

Our garden center staff member, Summer, received her Professional Garden Center Certification through the Minnesota Nursery and Landscape Association. This is a rigorous, higher learning course similar to a Master Gardening program for professionals in the industry.

Summer and long-standing staff member, LuAnn, went to the Garden Center and Retail buying show this fall and are excited for all of the new products to come in the Spring of 2023! 

We are so fortunate to have a core group of dedicated, hardworking crew members and loyal customers who have become friends and feel like family!

Thank you all for another wonderful 2022! We look forward to seeing you in 2023! From all of us at Balsam Lake Pro-Lawn, we wish you all a safe, healthy, and a very Happy New Year!

August Lawn and Landscape Updates

It’s The Best Time To Overseed, Plant, & Mulch!

August is like a breath of fresh air. The much-needed rain, cooler nights, and warm days are replenishing and rejuvenating for gardens, lawns, and landscapes. We’ve still got time to grow, plan, and prepare!

LAWN CARE: If areas of your lawn struggled in the summer heat and drought, now through mid-September is the time to invigorate your lawn with overseeding, aerating, and dethatching.

To enhance and enrich your lawn, visit our retail center for quality grass seed and seasonal lawn fertilizer. Call us at 715-485-3131 to schedule professional services for lawn aeration and dethatching. Visit our website for more details at

LANDSCAPING: Maybe you’ve worked hard all summer planting, weeding, deadheading, and mulching. But if you’re like most Midwest gardeners, your flower beds got away from you.

With August’s cooler temperatures and rainier weather, now is the best time to pull those weeds, fill in places in the garden that need a little color, and add mulch to those landscape beds.

Mulch not only freshens up your landscaping, it also aids in soil moisture retention, suppresses weeds, and adds winter protection for new and existing trees, shrubs, and perennials. Come in and see our selection of bagged and bulk mulch!

GARDEN CENTER NEWS: Our garden center is flourishing with healthy and hardy plants. Come in for fall apple and maple trees, spring crabapple trees, colorful shrubs, late-blooming perennials, and graceful ornamental grasses.

Reduce plant shock and injury by planting now when the temperatures are a bit cooler and the weather is rainier. Planting now will also help your trees, shrubs, and perennials get established this season, allowing them to flourish next season.

FALL ANNUALS: We have a new shipment of fall-blooming annuals coming in next week – August 25th. Expect to see fall mums, celosia, fall hanging baskets, and fun late-blooming ornamentals.

FALL PLANTING CLASS: Are your seasonal planters looking a little tired? Join us for our fall planting class to brighten up your patio pots and make your home warm and welcoming.

Friday, Sept. 2 from 3pm to 5pm 
Saturday, Sept. 3 from 1pm to 3pm

Class registration fee is $40 and includes a patio pot, fall annuals, soil, and planting support. Drop in anytime during the scheduled class time to create your fall seasonal planter.

Please Call us at 715-485-3131 to Pre-Register!

Thank you for making us a part of your late-summer lawn, garden, and landscaping projects! We look forward to seeing you soon!

From all of us at Balsam Lake Pro-Lawn, Happy August!
