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.
