“Service to sing about”

This is our motto at Meadowlark Garden Service. Have you heard the Meadowlarks singing recently? To me, this is a sign that spring is here. However, spring in Colorado is a roller coaster of temperatures and weather conditions. So while we are excited to get outside and clean up our yards and maybe plant some flowers or start a vegetable garden, we to be need cautious, too. Here are some things you can do at this time of year.

  • Cut back any remaining perennials to the ground
  • Cut back ornamental grasses
  • Prune shrubs except those spring flowering shrubs such as lilacs
  • Rake pine needles and leaves off lawn areas
  • Carefully clean up flower beds by gradually exposing new growth
  • Clean up vegetable garden and prep soil
  • Plant cool season vegetables such as peas, spinach, kale
  • Plant pansies, dianthus for color
  • Aerate and fertilize the lawn
  • Remove tree wrap
  • Start designing flower beds and containers
  • Visit nurseries and garden centers for ideas
  • Clean and sharpen tools

These are just a few things to do now. If you need help or have any questions please give us a call.

Joined our team this spring after moving to Colorado from Washington.  He has extensive experience in landscaping and lawn maintenance.  He was the owner and operator of IJ Grounds Maintenance where he was responsible for maximizing the sales and service by making sure the customer is satisfied with the job completion.



A Colorado and Douglas County native, my love of gardening and planting started at a young age. I have fond memories of helping my Dad tend to our yard, and plant our garden. I have always preferred digging in the dirt, than getting my nails done at the salon. Now, after raising three kids, I back doing what comes naturally, working outdoors, and getting my hands dirty.



It”s great to live and work in Colorado.  My job at Meadowlark Garden Service is support the team and have their backs. I enjoy working outdoors. I feel that it’s the best place to be in our great state. I keep coming back to Meadowlark during the busy season, because I”m always learning and I have a supportive team.
