Spring is here!
Time to cleanup your yard and garden.
The snow has melted, the grass is starting to turn green, the peepers are out. It’s official… Spring is here! This year you can follow these 5 essential steps for Spring Yard and Garden Cleanup to make your life easier and your yard and landscaping beautiful.
1. Prepare your gardens
Your gardens have been covered in snow and dead leaves all winter long. It’s time to uncover those roots, freshen up the mulch, and let the flowers thrive and bloom.
Get Busy Gardening shared a checklist to follow when starting out on this task:
- Prune shrubs
- Remove winter mulch
- Brush back leaves on top of plants
- Pull any dead annuals
- Remove dead growth from perennials
- Clean up your vegetable beds
- Pull the weeds
- Edge your garden beds
2. Enhance your flower beds
Do you want more gardens? Do you want to move flowers around, plant new shrubs, remove plantings? Now’s the time!
Perennials can be split in the Spring, so that’s a great time to use your existing plants to populate a new garden bed. Or, we can start fresh and create the wecolming front garden or cozy backyard oasis you’ve been dreaming of.
Once your existing gardens are cleaned up and your new gardens are in place, we can spread new mulch and make your landscaping look clean and fresh and ready for summer.
3. Freshen up your Lawn
If you want to have a lush, healthy lawn, you need to take some steps to allow it to grow and thrive. According to Good Housekeeping, this is the most essential step in your spring outdoor yard care routine.
- Remove debris- including sticks, leaves, and even dog poo
- Rake any patches of dry dead grass to allow the roots to grow and fill in the thin patches
- Seed any areas that have damage from heavy traffic or heavy snow areas
- Roll the lawn to even out the surface
4. Wash away the grime
Your patios, decks, sidewalks, driveway, fencing, and house all gather grime and dust throughout the winter months. Let DS Handymen wash it away for you. Our pressure washing service will make your hardscaping and home look good as new.
