The weather outside may still be frightful, but the inevitable warm-up is just around the corner. Your landscaping may look sad this time of year — winter has a way of doing that, after all. You can, however, take steps to prepare your landscaping for Spring.
As the temperatures begin to rise, consider the following for spring lawn care:
- Cutting and removing any leftover dead leaves and wood, including ornamental grasses
- Aerating the lawns and seeding where necessary
- Planting perennials — daffodils, tulips, and crocus are great options — where the ground has begun to soften, which will lead to eventual bursts of color
- Fertilizing shrubs
- Ensuring all irrigation systems are clean and ready to go
- Cutting back any dead tree limbs or remove dead trees altogether
- Planting new trees, where possible
- Applying new mulch around beds
