Screen It Green
Remember to screen it green! All trash and recycling containers must be stored inside a garage or accessory structure. Trash and recycling bins should be stored inside a storage area such as a garage or shielded by a natural landscape barrier.
Grass & Weed Control
Ensure grass and weeds do not exceed a height of 6 inches. This helps ensure properties are properly maintained and prevents maturing seeds from spreading to adjacent properties. Read more.
City crews work hard to keep Dublin beautiful through regular litter removal along right-of-ways. Despite these efforts some residents and commuters continue to litter, whether they realize it or not. Help keep Dublin beautiful by remembering to securely fasten trash and recycling bins and reporting litter when you see it.
More isn’t always better. Many Dublin residents use up to 3x more fertilizer on lawns than is necessary or healthy. Using too much fertilizer is wasteful and can make lawn and local water unsafe for people, pets and children. Together, our efforts can keep it Greener in Dublin.
Spring is the time to focus on these areas of the yard:
The City’s Horticulture experts plant, prune, water, weed and everything in between. Our knowledgeable staff is here to answer all your lawn care, gardening and planting questions.

Pruning, or cutting away dead or overgrown branches and stems, is important for tree health.
Cutting back perennials ensures they will stay healthy and re-bloom in the fall. Here’s how to do it.
Plants and lawns need hydration, especially in the summer months. Here are some tips to do it right.
It’s never too late to mulch. Spring is the best time to lay down mulch, but any time you can get it down can help prevent weeds, retain moisture, protect from mower compaction, add nutrition to plants, and increase curb appeal.
May, after the last frost date is the time to plant flowers! Plant like a pro with these tips.
