5 Quick Tips to Prepare Your Landscaping for Spring

| 1/31/2020 12:00:00 AM


While you may feel like Old Man Winter will never relinquish his grip, the robins will return before you know it. Now is the time for preparing your spring landscaping projects. Beautifying your home's exterior makes it more pleasant to return at the end of a long day, and it improves your property value significantly. 

What do you need to do to get ready for the coming season? While the earth renews itself after its long winter's nap, you can help it along the way. You can also create considerable curb appeal, even if you're not looking to sell. Here are some preparations you can make:

1. Perform a Thorough Cleanup 

Before you plant, you need to prepare your canvas like an artist. It's time to break out the rake and clear away the accumulated debris. Plus, leaves left lying under winter's blanket can cause snow rot disease, so quickly brush away any autumn strays. This process also aerates the soil, making it receptive to treatments. 

Then, you'll need to help any bald patches grow back by planting grass seed and using environmentally friendly weed killers to combat invasive growth. It's a wise idea to apply lawn food to give the soil and grass the nutrients it needs for a healthy growing season.
