Dreaming of warmer days and for the winter thaw to bring a little warmth into your life? So are we! Even though there may still be snow on the ground, if you want to hit the ground running once Spring arrives, it’s never too early to start planning your seasonal yard maintenance. Learn how to get a jump start on spring yard care below.

Start Early

As we mentioned above, it’s never too early to start planning your spring and summer landscaping wishlist, especially if you’re looking to make any major changes to your hardscape (i.e. installing a pathway or building a patio). Using the winter months to design a plan of attack will put you ahead once the snow finally melts.

Seasonal Clean Up

Once the weather begins to stay consistently warmer, one of the first steps you’ll want to take to revitalize your yard is clearing out any debris that may have collected throughout the colder months. Broken branches, leftover leaves, and dead grass are all a good place to begin.

Tidy Your Flowerbeds

Whether you have perennials planted or are looking to add some new greenery to your property, you’ll want to make sure your garden beds are clear of any dead plants and are neatly trimmed and mulched in advance.

Fertilize and aerate your lawn

The cold can be harsh on grass, especially if the summer and fall months were subject to volatile weather as well. Spring is your lawn’s fresh chance to breathe again. Give it a chance to thrive with some extra nutrients and you’ll be surprised how quickly it regains its lustre.
