Frequently Asked Questions
Landscaping is a very intricate art. Plants need specific amounts of water and sunlight to grow properly. While we recommend asking a professional, if you are having troubles with your garden, there are things that you can do yourself to ensure your garden gives you years of enjoyment. Below, are some questions that the Garden Doctors staff get frequently asked.
Question: Is there anything I can do in the garden during winter months?
Actually, the fall and winter seasons are the best time for doing landscape work in Louisiana. During the cold winter months, plants are dormant (sleeping) above ground, but if planted during this time of year, the roots will grow deep and establish the plants for the upcoming spring. This promotes flowering and new growth. Also, new landscaping requires less water during these cooler months.
Question: My lawn looks terrible in the winter. Is there anything I can do?
Yes. Winter rye grass is very inexpensive, and looks fantastic. Apply the seed over your dormant, brown lawn, and within a week you'll have a bright green lawn. You will have to mow your lawn, but the results are worth it. Each blade of winter rye grass is needle-thin, so there is no bagging required. The winter rye will die off as spring comes into bloom, and your existing lawn will come back to its beautiful green color.
