Month of MAY – Pest and Disease Control!


Here are a couple of ideas for you to do in May that will help you with your pests.

If you have broad-leaved weeds in your lawn already, and if hand weeding seems too onerous to you, aptreewrapply herbicides to them (but do so on a day relatively free from wind). Payne’s carries different products that will kill weeds in your lawn, stop by and ask our gardening experts what would be best for your lawn.

Before they have a chance to flower or set and distribute their seeds, dig up invading clumps of dandelions (get those roots!).
