Spring is just around the corner. Most homeowners are planning their spring cleaning. While spring cleaning will take care of your home interiors, you should also prepare your landscape for the best bloom of the year. At DNS Landscaping, we are the trusted residential and commercial landscaping service providers in San Antonio, TX. We recommend the following tips to have your landscape ready for spring.
1. Clean Your Yard
Begin the preparations with a yard cleanup. Remove any debris that may have accumulated in the yard during the fall and winter months.
- Remove all twigs, leaves, and other debris
- Use rakes and air blowers
When you remove all the debris, you are creating a clear and clean space for the spring blooms. This also prevents any debris from getting stuck in the lawn mower when working on the lawn. The debris could also interfere with the absorption of fertilizers.
Make sure to remove:
Raking also helps in breaking up and rejuvenating any clumped-up grass.
Pruning is an important step in preparing your landscape for spring. It helps get the best results for your shrubs and trees. Some of the key benefits are as follows:
- Improved tree and shrub health
- Removal of hazardous limbs
- Keeping shrubbery in elegant shape
- Revitalization in spring
Pruning also helps in maintaining the shape and size of the vegetation which contributes to the curb appeal.
3. Mow Early
You should start mowing before spring sets in. It is a common mistake to mow late and less frequently. When you allow the grass to grow high before cutting, it can cause the roots to get stunted. It is recommended to start early and mow more frequently. This can give you a thicker and fuller lawn.
4. Apply the Right Fertilizers & Weed Treatment
It is recommended to seek professional help for fertilizer and weed treatment. When it comes to fertilization, use a combination that feeds the grass. You should also use pre-emergents and weed killers. This can help ensure that your beds will have a full and beautiful bloom throughout the season and the lawns stay clean.
You cannot ignore edging when preparing the landscape for spring. It helps define the line between the lawn and landscaping. It prevents the grass from entering the beds. Besides, it will give a clean and well-defined look to the landscape.
6. Consider Mulching
Ask your landscape maintenance service whether the area needs mulching. There are many benefits to it:
- Improved plant health through controlled moisture absorption
- Preventing weeds from growing
It is important to determine whether the old much is good enough or needs to be removed.
So, make sure to take these steps to prepare your landscape for the spring season. At DNS Landscaping, we can provide you complete landscaping services to improve the health and curb appeal of your outdoor space.
