This Week on YouTube: March 17, 2018

It’s not official yet, but it looks like spring is finally here! With new videos ranging from first spring cleanings, lawn cuts and fertilizing tips, the lawn care community on YouTube is abuzz with excitement about the warmer seasons ahead and the business that comes with it! So here’s this week’s round-up of the best videos on spring cleaning from last week. Enjoy!

Hedge Trimming (Viburnum & Loropetalum)

UAG member Bradley Behr of Copper Creek Cuts kicks things off with an extensive hedge trimming video. Nothing says spring like a freshly trimmed hedge! Brad identifies two commonly found hedges. Can you name them?

Effective Spring Application of Herbicides

Jason Creole of Lawn Care Life shares his tips for applying weed control herbicides both before and after the appearance of grass. Knowing when to apply the herbicides, the amount to use and type of product required for specific type of grass can make a world of difference when it comes to a great lawn!

First Cuts of the Season

POV...now that’s what we like to see. Get in the shoes of this landscaper and see the work from his point of view. Check out Tony’s Lawn Care as he takes us on a tour of one of his jobs.

Bagged or Bulk Mulch, What do you Prefer?

UAG member Johnny Crooks of Blades of Grass, LLC gives us his view on this question about which is a better option - bag vs. bulk mulch. A task several landscapers are also likely to be doing as the weather gets warmer. Pricing is an obvious factor in this debate and there are many pros and cons between the two options.

Collect a soil sample and get custom fertilizer recommendations

If you’re really particular about using the right mixture and dosage of fertilizers for a customer,, you might want to consider getting help in the form of a soil test kit which Tim Linden of Grass Daddy demonstrates. In a few easy steps, you can get vital information about your soil and receive recommendations on the type of fertilizer you should use.
