As spring blossoms, many property owners begin spring-cleaning and putting their homes and businesses in order. But don’t forget to step outside and give the landscape attention too! Spring cleanup of outdoor spaces is a must for home and business owners who want to revive their lawn and clear away the harsh aftermath of the winter season.
The experts at The Grounds Guys offer these tips on how to spruce up lawns and landscapes to prepare for spring growth:
Clean up debris.
Rake the ground around shrubs and plants to remove dead foliage and fallen leaves. Also, remove old mulch and weeds.
Check irrigation lines, sprinkler heads, and flower bed borders. Replace or repair anything broken. Refill gravel or sand between stepping-stones and pavers. Check fences or trellises and repair broken or rotted wood areas.
Compost yard waste.
Place cuttings, leaves, foliage, and old mulch into a compost pile. Check out The Basics of Building a Compost Pile at http://www.groundsguys.com/news/basics-building-compost-pile for tips on how to build a compost pile.
Prune trees, shrubs and plants.
Take time to trim wild growth and remove unnecessary branches. Cut back winter-damaged plants to prompt new growth.
Remove fallen limbs or broken branches.
Large limbs and branches may have been broken due to high winds, heavy ice, or snow build-up. Walk the property and pick them up.
Replace damaged lawn patches.
Check the lawn for dead or damaged patches. Plant new seed or sod in these areas.
Wash away mold and mildew.
Using a pressure washer, clean away mold, algae, or stains from patios and walkways.
