Landscaping checklist for Sandpoint Idaho

Cabin fever is setting in!!! Here at On Track Lawn Care and Landscaping we are constantly on the go. Between doing snow removal, meeting with folks for landscape projects for 2019, working on Business taxes, Landscape design work, and constantly working on business related tasks sometimes we forget the Spring is coming fast!

March is almost always unpredictable. Shrubs can be covered with snow early in the month, and a couple of weeks later, temperatures can warm up enough for your plants to come to life! This year it seems as though we are a few weeks ahead of schedule with the weather. We would not be surprised if we start seeing plants and trees come to life towards the end of February.
