Shopping Locally at Your Essential Hardware Store is More Important Than Ever

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, March 25, 2020
Monnick Supply in Marlborough and Framingham

As a majority of retailers shut down to curb the spread of coronavirus, hardware stores are considered essential business and can remain open. Now more than ever we are beginning to understand the importance of shopping locally. We ask you, our neighbors, if you are doing any work around your home while you are at home through this crisis, to please shop at Monnick Supply in Marlborough and Framingham.

It might seem unreasonable to think you can pick up a can of paint or mulch, lawn fertilizer, seeds, and more right now. But much like grocery stores, hardware stores are deemed essential and permitted to be open. And, as a locally owned, family owned and operated hardware store, would like to express our appreciation that our doors remain open.

Monnick also has a full equipment rental department available. We rent everything from drain augers to wallpaper steamers to mini excavators. Monnick also has a full-service repair shop to get your spring equipment ready! We repair items from chainsaws and trimmers to lawn tractors and commercial lawn equipment. We are also offering free delivery in Marlboro and Framingham as well as curbside service.

As an essential retailer to the Marlborough and Framingham families and businesses we serve, Monnick Supply is committed to keeping both of our stores open during this time of crisis. Contact us.

Spring Lawn Care Plan with Scotts

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, March 17, 2020

The weather is warming up and soon it will be time to start thinking about spring lawn care.

1. Clean Up

Kick off the growing and mowing season with a quick spring cleaning. Grab a lawn rake to rake out dead grass and dead remnants of annual grassy weeds, such as crabgrass, goosegrass, and barnyard grass. Pick up any sticks or other debris that has accumulated on the lawn over winter.

2. Mow High

Double-check your mower deck height, and position it to cut grass at the highest possible setting for your grass type. Cutting high encourages grass plants to grow thicker with deeper roots, which creates a lawn of healthy grass that will help to crowd out weeds.

3. Apply Fertilizer

Lawns wake up from winter dormancy with an appetite. Apply Scotts® Turf Builder® Triple Action. Not only will it feed and strengthen your lawn, but it also kills weeds like dandelions and clover and prevents future weeds. Feed again two months later with Scotts® Turf Builder® Lawn Food to keep grass lush and strong. With all products, be sure to follow label directions.

Be sure, too, that you have just the right spreader for your lawn. The super-simple Scotts® Whirl™ Hand-Powered Spreader is great for small yards, while the larger Scotts® Turf Builder® Edgeguard® DLX Broadcast Spreader will easily cover lawns up to 15,000 square feet. For even bigger lawns, turn to the Scotts® Elite Spreader, which can hold enough fertilizer for up to 20,000 square feet.

4. Beat Weeds

Spot-treat dandelions or wild violets using Scotts® Spot Weed Control For Lawns. This weed killer controls weeds without harming grass. By spraying, you avoid disturbing grass roots and unearthing dormant weed seeds, both of which can happen when you hand-weed.

5. Patch and Thicken

Repair bare spots in both cool- and warm-season turf using Scotts® EZ Seed®. Timing is crucial for success: Aim for an early spring sowing for cool-season grass and a late spring sowing for warm-season grass. If your lawn is worn and thin, thicken it by overseeding. In the north, overseed with Scotts® Turf Builder® Thick’R Lawn™ , a product specially designed for thickening up thin lawns that combines grass seed, fertilizer, and a soil improver into an easy-to-use product that is applied with a Scotts® spreader. In the south, use the appropriate Scotts® Turf Builder® Grass Seed product for your grass type, and get your new grass off to a good start by using Scotts® Turf Builder® Starter® Food for New Grass.
