Spring Pond Maintenance 

Getting Your Pond Up and Running 

 

Pond clean-outs should be done before plant life begins to fully emerge and pond bacteria haven't started colonizing, usually before the water temperature reaches 55F. A full clean out replaces nutrient rich water with fresh clean water, a process similar to the way spring rains and snow melt naturally flush out our natural ponds and lakes.

  

Cedar Run Landscapes provides full pond services and will soon be starting our annual spring clean outs. Even if you think your pond just needs some tidying up we would be glad to assist you. To be added to our list of pond maintenance customers, contact us at info@cedarrunlandscapes.com.

Plant of the Month

Tiarellas  

 

Tiarella cordifolia is a wonderful native perennial with numerous cultivars. Commonly called the foam flower, this plant is happiest in part to full shade and likes average, medium, or well-drained soils. Depending on the variety, this plant will grow in a clump form to 2 feet wide or spread by runners forming a dense ground cover. Tiny, white or pink flowers with long stamens appear in spring for nearly 6 weeks. These guys will look great in a shaded rock garden, woodland garden, along a border or in a naturalized landscape.Tiarella is also known to be deer and rabbit resistant.   

 

 

Spring Lawn Maintenance

Weed Prevention    

  

If you prefer a weed-free lawn, spring lawn care is an important step in keeping a healthy green lawn. Applying an early spring fertilizer to your lawn will help give it a healthy boost. Incorporating a pre-emergent weed control, which prohibits seed germination, along with this fertilizer will prevent unwanted weeds such as crab grass, nutsedge, or dandelions from taking root.
