How To Start Spring Landscaping

Now that winter is over, it’s time to really address the needs of your landscape. If you want to ensure that your landscape looks it’s best this summer, now is the time to get started! After all, winter can sure cause some damage to your greenery so it’s best to give your lawn plenty of time to recoup its losses.

Early spring is a good time to fertilize your grass, plants and trees. A light fertilizing is best for their overall health to start out with, then later on a larger supplement can be applied to keep flowers blooming, trees strong and grass nice and green. As professional landscapers, our team at Mountain View Landscape can check the pH in your lawn too, and advise you if lime needs to be added as well.

Your lawn may need aeration and reseeding to fill-in any bare spots, or just to thicken your lawn as a whole to give it a smooth carpet-like appearance. Aeration helps with compaction over the winter and gives the roots of your grass room to breathe for strong growth throughout the season.

Another early landscaping project is mulching. Mulching is very helpful to flowers, shrubs and trees to retain moisture and help to discourage weeds from growing. It also serves as a decorative look when you add pine bark nuggets, shredded mulch or pine straw to your landscaping. At Greenskeeper you can easily add mulching as an addition to your lawn care maintenance program.

Spring is the busiest time of the year for your yard with planting, weeding, mulching, fertilizing and much more. Giving your plants and grass a head start will go a long way to keep them strong and vibrant season after season. With the proper spring landscaping, lawn care and lawn maintenance plan, your yard can live up to its potential and provide endless hours of enjoyment for you and your family.
