Spring is almost here in Maryland! That means it’s time to start seriously thinking about what your 2020 landscape is going to look like. Luckily, we have assembled a helpful guide to help you get started!
Tidy it Up
It’s almost time for spring cleaning. With spring comes new growth and new opportunities for improvement. So, don’t delay, and get around to cleaning up your gardens and landscapes as soon as you can. Get rid of weeds and make any necessary changes, such as pruning, that you think you need to do. The recent run of warm weather might have already gotten some plants started on growing, so be careful that you don’t damage them while you work.
Prepare the Soil
The cold winter has taken its toll on your home, and your landscape is no exception. Refresh your soil and add some mulch or compost. If you see weeds, it’s best if you get rid of them before adding a new layer of soil. Then you might have to wait several weeks and give the soil time to settle.
Add Your Plants
Now that the soil is all aerated and ready, it’s time to add your chosen plants. This is where you’ll be able to have some fun and be creative. Taller, larger plants go towards the back while shorter plants go in front. Show off your personal style by playing with colors and mixing up the unique shapes that plants have to offer.
Keep it Maintained
As the weeks go by, you can’t ignore your landscape. It’s understandable if you get busy and real life pulls you away from taking care of your garden, your trees, and all of your other landscape features. That said, don’t forget to maintain their health as spring arrives for real and then gradually becomes summer.
