While the temperatures outside might be cold, spring will be here before you know it. Is your yard ready? Here are a few tips to help you get things in tip-top shape, so you have a beautiful space to enjoy with family and friends.
Assess your lawn
Take a good look at your lawn and see if there are signs of disease, rot, or pests. Are there any bare areas or swampy areas? Now is an excellent time to start addressing those issues, so you have a good foundation for your spring lawn.
Check your plantings
With the cold temperatures, did any of your plantings sustain damage? Take this time to remove any dead plants and snip or trim off damaged limbs. If pruning is needed, this is a great time to get that done as well, plus it is easier to do without all of the leaves getting in your way.
Remove debris and overgrowth
Nothing quite feels like the freedom of a blank canvas. If your yard is buried beneath debris... extra pieces of lumber from last summer's projects, bricks from your old patio, play equipment the kids have outgrown, etc. OR if you can no longer see your yard because it is lost in overgrowth, this is a great time to clear that all away.
Remove moss on hardscapes
Winter brings a lot of wonderful things, but moss is not on that list. Give your pavers and other hardscape surfaces a good cleaning to make them safer (i.e., not slippery) and extend their lifespan. If you opt to powerwash this growth away, be extra careful not to destroy the material used in between blocks or stones that keep your surface stable.
