Although we are experiencing spring, summer is just around the corner. While you may have given your yard a quick spring cleanup, there are more things to do to prepare your lawn for the hot days ahead. Complete these tips to keep your landscape looking great by summer.
Every year your lawn can receive a makeover by adding several things like a garden, flowers, or a shrub to help enhance your landscaping. Now is the time to inspect your yard and start planning. Keep your landscape looking great by summer, and plan accordingly.
If you have gardens and plant beds, you should utilize early spring to clean up leaves and dead debris to promote new growth. It’s also good to rake any dead grass and leaves if you have grass. This will help you avoid fungus and enable your grass to grow when it wakes up by summer. If your yard has trees, early spring is ideal to complete any pruning.
Freshen Up Your Grass
After you rake your turf, it’s time to help it wake up. Early spring is ideal for aerating, fertilizing, and seeding, producing the best landscaping results for your yard in the summer. You’ll probably see the signs of aerators. In addition, aeration helps loosen the soil and help new turf grow. Plus, a good fertilizer will give your grass the nutrients it needs. If you must seed any areas of your yard, now’s the time to do that too.
Sometimes adding fresh mulch can help. Mulching can assist your plants in retaining water, keeping weeds at bay, and even stopping insects. Our team has earned the expertise to know when to mulch and which methods work best.
