As the last of the cold weather and snow fades away, we are seeing the first pops of color breaking their way through the landscapes. Spring is the time of year that we get to work with a clean slate and bring our gardens to life.
A common mistake by many is waiting for the warmer months to begin to tend to their yard. March is the perfect month start preparing gardens for springtime and create your game plan for the season. Plan now, enjoy later. That way, when the warm, beautiful days arrive, you will be able to enjoy your yard to its fullest.
Your garden and landscapes are an investment. After spending the time, money, and resources to design and install them, you will need to make sure they are properly taken care of. By using an aftercare program, you are guaranteeing that your gardens will continue to grow and thrive through every season. Without proper maintenance, a landscape will lose its value over time.
Tips for Preparing Gardens for Springtime:
- General cleaning of gardens and planting beds
- Laying down a good spring fertilizer to help wake things up
- Corrective and Selective Pruning of perennials, shrubs and evergreens
- Cut back any old growth before new growth emerges
- Spot Seeding Turf Areas
- Redefine Planting Beds
- Cultivation and Weeding of Planting Beds
- Add urns, planters, and fountains to enhance your gardens
