Start Preparing NOW for Spring & Summer
Spring is just almost here, and dreams of warmer weather, more hours of sunlight and blooming flowers will soon come true. We have almost made it through another dark, cold winter, and will soon be rewarded with beautiful blooms, bees and warm rain showers. The spring equinox will arrive before you know it, and if you want to get a head start on your landscaping and garden, you have just a few weeks left! Here’s where to start:
It’s likely that you haven’t been spending too much time outside lately, and your yard may have even been covered with snow recently. It’s always a good idea to take a walk around and check on the status of your lawn, shrubs and landscaping. Are there any plants that have been damaged over the winter? Are there any spots that just seem too empty? Make a list of problems to address and ideas you want to bring to life. This is a great time to revisit how you used your outdoor spaces last year, and you wish-list of features like more outdoor seating or walkways.
Make a Plan of Action
It’s easy to put off tasks that will take up for first warm weekends of spring, but before you know it, you’ll be halfway through the season and it will be too late to start that vegetable garden or have spring flowers blooming for your family and neighbors to see. Do your research to find the right time to plant things for your growing zone, or find reputable professionals to revamp your landscaping and schedule services now for early in the season.
Cleanup & Maintenance
Start the season with a clean slate by raking flower beds, pulling weeds and laying down mulch. Take time to prepare your lawn equipment as well. Your lawn mower, edger and blower may need cleaning or tune-ups to help keep your outdoor spaces looking beautiful and prepare for the seasons to come.
