Spring is also the season to consider the following landscape services of Tommy Pollina Landscape:

Mulching

Mulch is organic material that is placed over soil.. Spreading mulch or mulching provides the following benefits to your landscape:

  • Inhibits the germination of seeds from most weeds
  • Reduces the need for the use of herbicides
  • Lessens the need for constantly cultivating bed lines
  • Moderates soil temperature on hot sunny days
  • Retains moisture during dry weather decreasing the need for watering
  • Keeps the soil in a loam state which allows your plants and bushes to flourish
  • Inhibits soil runoff during rain storms

Annuals Planting

Annuals refer to flowers that grow, bloom and die in a single season. Petunias, begonias, geraniums and pansies are some popular annuals. Perennials are flowers that once planted will bloom every year such as tulips and roses. Most gardens have a combination of annuals and perennials. When you're assured that the Chicago weather will stay above freezing, it's time to plan your annuals planting.

Please call (847) 698-6868 or contact Tommy Pollina Landscape Company to order your flats of annuals and schedule installation.

Fertilizing

A properly balanced lawn fertilizing program is necessary if you want a good looking lawn throughout the year. Fertilizing your lawn in the spring helps the grass develop a dense rooting system. A dense rooting system makes it difficult for any invasive plant species to take hold and ruin your lawn.
