How to Prepare Your Landscape for Spring and Summer

spring and summer

Spring means spring flowers! But there are a few steps to take before you can enjoy those colorful blooms.

The sun is out, weeds are starting to emerge from their wintery hiding places, and everyone is heading outdoors to enjoy the weather. This week is the perfect time to prepare your landscape for spring and summer, before it’s too late. Here are our top tips to help you get your landscape in order and enjoy the beautiful spring and summer sun.

Take Stock of Your Commercial Landscape

Take a walk around your commercial property with a piece of paper (or a cell phone) and take notes of everything that needs to be repaired. Potentially hazardous things can include loose debris, broken pavement, or potholes. Fix unsafe conditions first so that your property looks great and is safe for all residents and visitors.

Check Your Irrigation Systems

Now that the chill of winter has faded, make sure that all of your outdoor plumbing and irrigation systems are still in good order. Your irrigation system is an important part of preparing your landscape for spring and summer, as it’s almost impossible to get a lush lawn and gorgeous garden without it. If you have the budget, it’s also the best time of year to upgrade your system to a drip irrigation method that targets plants and uses less water.

Clean Up, Clean Up

Winter can leave a lot of debris behind, whether that means downed tree branches or excess leaves left over from the fall. Clean up your landscape before continuing your maintenance so that your lawn isn’t damaged by any rotting or diseased branches and plants.

Fertilize

Spring is the best time of year to grow your lawn and landscaping, so apply fertilizer throughout your property. Take the time to choose one that is appropriate for the area and designed for your grass seed type, soil type, and environmental restrictions.
