How to Prep Your Landscaping for Spring

As the weather begins to warm, it’s a good idea to examine your yard and check your landscaping. It may be time to get out there and start to prepare your landscaping for spring. We have a few tips to get your yard in summer-ready condition.

Get Your Fertilizer Ready

Winter weather can kill your plants, grass, and trees. To counteract these negative effects, adding fertilizer in the spring can ensure that your yard looks great.

Be sure to read the instructions on the fertilizer you buy so that you apply it properly. Too much fertilizer can be a bad thing and will ultimately harm your landscaping.

Clean Up Your Gardens and Yard

Remove all leaves and tree debris from your yard and gardens and mow your lawn often. By cleaning up your yard and keeping your grass trim, you’ll ensure that your grass has the ability to grow in thick. Don’t be afraid of over mowing your lawn (assuming the weather hasn’t been too dry), if you mow every five to six days your grass grow in thicker.

Check your garden plants and trees for dead spots that may have appeared over the winter. It’s important to trim your plants and cut out any dead spots. If any plants or flowers are primarily dead, it may be a good idea to remove them completely.

Replace Your Mulch

Spring is a great time to replace the mulch in your gardens and landscaping. The winter can wear away your mulch, making it look dingy and depleted. By laying down a fresh, new layer of mulch, you can reinvigorate your garden beds.

We recommend a dyed mulch, cypress blend mulch, or pine bark if you’re considering replacing your mulch. It will make your landscaping look great and has the durability to last for a long time. If you’re looking to update your mulch you can order online or give us a call.
