Spring has sprung! Now that we are in the end of the month of April, it is easy to see signs of spring all around us. The soil is warming up, buds have bloomed, daylight is lasting longer and allergy season has arrived! Spring always brings about the time for projects and plans. Homeowners are looking to clean and reorganize, to tackle projects that were left dormant all winter. It’s that time of year for spring home maintenance projects. For both inside and outside of your home.
This is the time of year to clean your gardens. Be sure to get rid of all the debris from winter. The damage from the cold weather and storms can wreck havoc on your property. Take the time to remove all dead branches, leaves and material from your yard. It is time to start fertilizing your lawn, in order to allow grass to come back green, without patches. Cleaning the planting beds, adding mulch will help with new flower growth. Being sure there is adequate irrigation to the soil. Especially in the coming weeks where the sun becomes stronger. Water is vital at this time of year.
Spring home maintenance requires due diligence. It takes time and patience to properly care for gardens. The time and effort that is put in and spent on the property will show in the weeks to come.
