Repairing Last Year’s Flooded Landscapes

Flooded Farm

It is a new year and spring is here, so it’s time to get flooded landscapes back into shape. Bare spots in the lawn can be reseeded or resodded when the ground is dry enough to work. Thin lawns will benefit from fertilization, especially if you did not fertilize last fall. Trees and shrubs can be planted in early spring as soon as the ground is dry. The lack of snow this winter will allow people to establish these plants earlier than in most years. However, it’s too early to plant vegetable seeds in the garden because most of the state is susceptible to frost damage at least until mid to late May.
