Now that winter is gone, it’s time to welcome spring back. Even though it has only officially been spring for a week or so, it’s only a matter of time until the weather fully warms up again. That means it’s time to fix up your landscape and restore its full beauty. Here is a guide on how to do that!
Repair Lingering Winter Damage
Winter is behind us, but that doesn’t mean you’re out of the woods just yet. Even in a mild winter, it can still leave signs of damage on both your landscape and your hardscape features. Inspect hardscaping and water features to see what the freeze-thaw cycle and the effects of nearby road salt have down to them. Also look at the fences around your property, since they can be damaged or destroyed by wind, rain, hail, and sleet.
The next step is to do whatever you can to clean up. Clean up fallen tree branches, acorns left behind by hungry squirrels, leaves, rocks, and other loose bits of rubbish that can become a serious eyesore. Pull up any weeds you see that are threatening your lawn and garden before they can turn into another problem as well.
Put Down Fresh Mulch
Fresh mulch makes a huge difference. It boosts your curb appeal and also helps nurture the plants in your garden while stopping the growth of any weeds that are lurking in there. Plus, it balances out soil temperature and moisture levels, which are essential for helping your plants make it through the long summer that is sure to come.
Start Up Irrigation
Don’t forget to start up your irrigation systems! If you’re not sure how to do this, then it is a good idea to call a professional who will know what to do!
