After a long winter of slumber, your yard really starts to wake up in the springtime. From trees, shrubs and flowers to a big green lawn, your yard needs help to stay healthy, grow to its potential, and showcase all of its natural beauty. Spring landscaping including smart lawn care and continual lawn maintenance is important to support all of these things and keep your curb appeal impressive throughout the seasons.
Early spring is a good time to for the fertilization of your grass, plants and trees. A light fertilizing is best for their overall health to start out with, then later on a larger supplement can be applied to keep flowers blooming, trees strong and grass nice and green. A professional landscaper, like ourselves at Organic Nature Lawn Care, can check the pH in your lawn too, and advise you if lime needs to be added as well.
Your lawn may need aeration and reseeding to fill-in any bare spots, or just to thicken your lawn as a whole to give it a smooth carpet-like appearance. Aeration helps with compaction over the winter and gives the roots of your grass room to breathe for strong growth throughout the season.
Mulching is very helpful to flowers, shrubs and trees to retain moisture and help to discourage weeds from growing. It also serves as a decorative look when you add pine bark nuggets, shredded mulch or pine straw to your landscaping. This can be easily taken care of through your landscaping contractor as an addition to your lawn care maintenance program.
Spring is the busiest time of the year for your yard with planting, weeding, mulching, fertilizing and much more. Giving your plants and grass a head start will go a long way to keep them strong and vibrant season after season. With the proper spring landscaping, lawn care and lawn maintenance plan, your yard can live up to its potential and provide endless hours of enjoyment for you and your family.
