Monthly Gardening & Lawn Care Chores for Zones 5 & 6

Timing is everything when your goal is a beautiful lawn and garden. Help your plants and lawn thrive throughout the year with these monthly gardening and landscaping tips and chores, including lawn care, pruning, fertilizing, and planting.

These month by month gardening tips apply to USDA Plant Hardiness Zones 5 & 6, which encompass all of Western Pennsylvania. Keep in mind that even within zones, climatic factors such as wind and sun exposure, snow cover, and proximity to water combine to produce different "microclimates" which can influence plant adaptability and timing of certain garden chores.
