Spring is on its way. Before you know it, the leaves will start growing and flowers will begin blossoming. In fact, homeowners may want to take some time out now, before spring makes its way to the area and prepare their landscape prior to the temperature warming up. Here are some incredibly helpful tips to ensure that your lawn and garden landscape is picturesque comes spring.
A Simple Clean-Up Will Do
One of the first things you can do to prepare your lawn and garden for warmer weather would be to conduct a basic clean-up of the area. In fact, some basic landscape maintenance can do wonders along with a full clean of the yard from front to end (or back to front). Begin by simply removing all the debris that most likely accumulated over the cold winter. Be mindful to wear heavy-duty gloves to protect your hands while you conduct this type of cleaning.
Get Your Rake Out
As soon as you finish cleaning up the lawn and garden, bring your rakes out from hibernation. In fact, getting the cobwebs off your rake and using it for the first time this season can be a great way to get you excited for the upcoming warmer weather. But rakes do more than just giving homeowners something exciting to look forward to. Rakes will help you remove any leaves that may have fallen and created a mess in the lawn, garden or yard. However, rakes also are a great way to break-up any clumped up grass which invigorates and stimulates it to grow.
Begin The Pruning Process
Pruning is a key component of landscape maintenance. In fact, spring tends to be peak pruning time. The process of pruning allows trees in your yard to stay healthy while also getting rid of anything that might be potentially dangerous and harmful to the plants and flowers that are growing in your yard or garden.
