Although snow is on the ground, Spring is on a lot of people’s minds. Warmer weather warms people’s spirits. Now that it’s February, it’s the ideal to start planning your landscape design if you know that your property won’t be as beautiful as you’d like or rank high in curb appeal come Spring. You can count on Carroll Landscaping to take your home exterior to the next level. In the meantime, here are some surefire ways to ensure your landscape is spring-ready.
Clean Your Yard Before Spring
Yards can take quite the beating when fall and winter come. The cleanup process can be extensive because of snow and debris. The first step to clean up your yard as the new season comes is to clean up debris like leaves and twigs piled up during the colder seasons. You don’t want to overwhelm yourself, so it’s best to clean periodically. You can also implement landscape maintenance by cleaning up in the form of mulching. You can take leaves and debris and compost them or break them down even further and recycle them as mulch.
Examine Your Yard After Inclement Weather
The goal is for your landscape to look full of life. Dead, hanging branches can detract from the beauty of your landscape. Once the snow melts, we recommend looking for dangling tree branches and removing them: one, your safety matters. Two, you’ll save yourself time on cleanup later in the spring season.
Get a Handle on Weed Control
February and March are ideal times to get a jump start on weed control. If your landscape suffers from troublesome weeds, you can apply crabgrass and pre-emergents controls during your mulching process. The rule of thumb to adhere to here is to use pre-emergent only if the temperature is under 55 degrees. You can use pre-emergent before the ground thaws. However, if you wait until warmer weather comes, this process will be less effective.
