With the first day of Spring only a few weeks away, snow on the ground, and more on the way, we can only hope this to be true!

Snow or clear skies, here are some fun things to keep your mind off the weather.

Spring Lawn and Landscaping Care

In anticipation of the long-awaited warmer temperatures, here is a quick checklist to help you get your yard in shape for the season ahead.

  • Inspect your trees and shrubs. Look for any branches that might be broken or damaged and prune them or have them removed by a professional.
  • Test your soil. Test your soil once every few years to make sure it has the proper pH balance and mix of nutrients.
  • Fertilize your lawn. The decision about whether or not to fertilize should be based on the nutrition requirements needed by your soil conditions.
  • Fertilize trees and Shrubs, too. Most plants, trees, and shrubs will benefit from proper fertilization with a slow-release product just before mulch is applied.
  • Control Weeds. Spring is a good time to apply pre-emergent weed control for weeds such as crabgrass.
  • Make planting beds neat and tidy. Rake the old leaves and debris from plant beds and create neat, natural edges around the beds using an edging tool.
  • Add an inch-thick layer of fresh mulch in plant beds and around trees. Don’t let the mulch touch tree trunks and never let the mulch accumulate to more than a 3-inch depth. Mulch not only makes planting areas look neat, but also helps to retain moisture in the soil, keeps roots cool in the summer, and insulates them in the winter.

Does all this sound a bit overwhelming? Afraid you might not have time for everything? My husband can help!
