If you are interested in an organic lawn, then NOW is the time to put down your pre-emergent. We used Jonathan Greene (Thanks Paul!) Weed control (corn gluten). It is pretty powdery so wear a mask when laying it down. We have cleared all the beds of weeds and leaves, pruned our roses and are ready for the spring. I’m also in the market for a simple trellis for my “new dawn” roses that I planted last fall. I’m excited to watch them grow.
