Spring has arrived! It’s time to get outside and begin creating the perfect landscape for your home! As the weather continues to warm, your garden and grasses will continue to bud with new growth. But, the winter has no doubt left its mark on your yard with broken branches, bare patches and some additional cleanup that needs to take place. As a trusted name in residential landscaping for Lakeville and surrounding areas, we’ve put quite a bit of thought into this. So, here are a few tips from the professional landscaping specialists here at Environmental Design to help you get your yard spring-ready.
Revive with Raking
Carefully rake up all of the dead leaves, debris and pine cones that have gathered on your lawn over the last several months. Raking helps loosen the soil, improving air flow and encouraging your grass to grow.
Re-Seed Bare Patches
If you notice any bare patches in your lawn, loosen the surface and spread a mixture of grass seed and compost or fertilizer over the bare spot. Tamp the surface with your rake to firm in the seed. If you aren’t comfortable doing this on your own or if the issue is wide-spread, give your expert residential landscaping company a call and we can help!
Apply a new layer of mulch to your shrubs and trees; providing a depth of between two and four inches. It can help your plants retain moisture; helping them grow throughout the spring and summer. Residential landscaping experts like us know a lot about mulching and fertilization, so give us a call if you want to learn more!
Refresh with Water
Get your new plants off to a good start by thoroughly soaking the soil before putting them in the ground. And once they’re in the ground, keep the soil slightly moist at all times during the beginning of growing season until plants become well-established. A good rule of thumb is to “water once a week and water deep.” If you have any questions about how to properly water your lawn, ask a residential landscaping company like us for guidance.
