Welcome to the 2016 Lawn Season!


Posted on by plsadmin

Weekly lawn mowing has officially started and if you are anything like us you are rejoicing over the change of seasons. If this warmer weather has got you thinking about all of your landscaping plans for the season, but you aren’t sure which project to tackle first, our service list may be able to help point you in the right direction.

Have you ever wondered which services happen during which month? For example, when is the best time to trim lilacs? When is a better time to aerate, spring or fall?

Here is a list of the services we will be offering this season along with our recommendations for what is the optimum time of year for each service to be completed. If you would like pricing for any of these options, please send us an inquiry to: info@petersonlawn.com
