Late-Summer Tree Care Tips 

If you have newly planted trees this season, are looking to plant new trees this fall, or have existing landscapes, here are a few things to consider. 

Watering: It’s important to keep your trees and landscapes adequately watered during this time. To thoroughly water, give the ground a deep soak (area should be wet without being soggy) once or twice a week depending on the amount of rain. 

For an easy watering option, use a slow-relase Tree Watering Bag. Just fill the irrigation bag with water, and the bag will slowly water your tree over a 5 to 8 hour duration. This will deeply saturate the ground over a longer period of time, giving your tree the water it needs to grow strong and healthy roots. 

Tree Guards: Now is the time to protect your trees with tree guards or tree wrap. Place plastic tree guards or tree wrap around the trunk of your trees to protect against deer scrapes, rabbit and small animal damage, and winter sunscald.

Mulch: Late-summer to early-fall is a great time to mulch your trees and landscapes. Mulching is an effective weed barrier and aids in ground moisture retention. Mulch also insulates plant roots, protecting your trees, shrubs, and perennials from winter damage. 

Late-Summer Lawn Care 

Now through the end of September is the best time to overseed, re-seed, or establish a new lawn.  

Grass Seed: If areas of your lawn struggled in the summer heat and drought, invigorate and enrich your lawn with overseeding. Just 3 to 5lbs of seed is needed to overseed a 1000 sq. ft. area. Visit our retail center for quality grass seed, seasonal lawn fertilizer, and organic Black Earth Lawn Soil. 

Call us at 715-485-3131 to schedule professional services for lawn aeration and dethatching. Visit our website for more details at

Come in and see us for all of your garden, landscape, and lawn care needs!

Summertime is primetime for pest issues and damage caused by deer, rabbits, moles, squirrels, aphids, mites, Japanese beetles, scales, leafminers, black spot, powdery mildew, and much more.  

Are these pests attacking your plants?

Our retail center carries a variety of organic, natural, safe, and easy-to-use products for your fruit trees, ornamental trees, roses, flowering & fruiting shrubs, perennials, vegetables, & houseplants.

Deer, Rabbits, Geese, Squirrels, & Moles: Here are some tips for mammal pest control.

1. Apply different products or scents at each application. Deer & rabbits can eventually get used to the same product, no matter how effective it may have been on the first application. If your go-to animal repellent is no longer doing the job, try a different product or a variety of scents.

Mix up your routine & switch to Milorganite, I Must Garden Deer Repellent in mint or spice, Liquid Fence in a granular or spray, or Plantskydd spray. Most of these products are available in a variety of sizes & applications, depending on the size of the area you may need to cover.

2. Apply regularly. We have found it is best to apply any type of deer or rabbit repellent every two weeks, or after a heavy rain. Like most gardening activities, you have to keep up on it to keep it looking nice.

Pests & Disease on your Fruit Trees, Ornamental Trees, Shrubs, & Perennials

Protect your fruit trees, shrubs, & perennials from insects & disease with Fruit Tree & Plant Guard or Horticulture Oil. These sprays are safe to use & guard against a wide variety of insects & disease covering many stages of pest & disease development. 

Neem oil, Spider Mite Control, & Fungicides are also safe & effective products that protect your valuable plants from a variety of pests & disease.

If you have questions about the type of products that would work best for your situation, come in and talk with our knowledgable staff!
