After a long winter, most yards need some basic maintenance and landscaping to prepare for the warmer weather. You will likely find that your family spends more time outdoors as the weather gets nicer so it’s important to have the yard prepared so that everyone can enjoy your outdoor space. When preparing for spring cleanups, it’s best to call in a professional landscaping company so they can complete the work for you and your family can head outdoors to enjoy the sunshine and beautiful weather. The following are some of the most common landscaping tasks that need to be completed after the winter season.
Fall and winter usually means that your yard is full of leaves, limbs, and other debris that have accumulated during the cooler weather. This can leave a mess in your yard, plus it can inhibit the growth of new plants. To start the year off right and prepare for a beautiful green lawn, it’s helpful to have someone mow the lawn early and to weed, fertilize, and seed for new grass if necessary. If you want a lush lawn when it’s time to spend your evenings outdoors, it’s essential to re-mediate any problems with the grass that may have happened throughout the fall and winter. Cooler weather can change the pH of the soil but this can easily be repaired by a knowledgeable landscaper.
Spring weather means that it’s time to add new flowers and plants to your yard. When planting new foliage, especially trees and other larger plants, consulting a landscaper can help ensure that you have plants that will thrive in your particular area. A landscaper can check soil conditions in the area where you want new plants so that they will grow beautifully throughout the spring and summer. A professional landscaper can also deal with any issues that you may have with flower beds, retaining walls, or other outdoor structures to prepare them for the spring.
Winter weather can lead to issues with trees and shrubs on your property and can weaken limbs, leading to a potentially dangerous situation. A landscaper can check your trees and trim any weak limbs that need to be removed. They can also assess the health of your trees and do any mulching, fertilizing, or other treatments so that trees are healthy and can continue to grow, providing cooling shade for your yard.
