Now that warmer days have arrived, seeds are popping up in home improvement stores, and flowers are starting to shoot up from the ground, it’s time to get started on planning your spring landscaping. Here are three of our best steps to help you plan your spring landscaping and enjoy beautiful flowers and shrubs all season long.
Make a List
First things first, take a walk around your yard and see what damage the winter has left behind. Take a pen and paper with you to make a list of improvements that you want to make, any damaged plants that need to be removed, any branches or limbs that should be pruned or removed, and anything else that is concerning. A list will help you stay on track with your spring landscaping and get what you need from the store.
Make a Plan
Now that you know what needs to be done, make a plan for accomplishing all of it. This might include preparing yourself for doing the work or hiring professionals, like Pinehurst Landscape Company, for helping out. Any tree work should be done by a professional, especially if your tree damage is anywhere near power lines or your roof.
Get to Work
Once you are done planning your spring landscaping, it’s time to get the job done. Work systematically in sections of your yard, or tackle one task at a time. If you have weeding to do throughout the yard, focus on getting that done first. Next, move on to one yard-encompassing task. Working through tasks completely will ensure that you don’t overly tax the plants or yourself. Don’t panic when you see lots of brown in your yard—plants can take a long time to recover from harsh winters or the chemicals that you use to treat the lawn.
