How To Leverage End Of Winter For Better Spring Bloom

20002160_sWhile it might seem like the spring season is still very far off, anyone who works in their yard knows that is not the case. In fact, these last few weeks of winter are the real beginning of the spring season for a landscaper because these are the weeks when you can really do some tasks to leverage the spring season in your yard.

The plants in your yard have just been through a pretty harsh winter and survived all of the cold temperatures and difficult elements, if you give them a bit of TLC now, they will pay you back ten-fold in the spring months.

Here are just a few things that you can do around your yard now, to make sure that the spring months are made the most of:

  • Add mulch to your perennial fruit and vegetable garden beds. Make sure to turn the soil and get it ready for planting. Clean out all debris and weeds. If there are any leaves or sticks that have been blown into the bed, this is the time to clean all of that out. Use garden scissors to trim the grass around the edges of the garden bed. And, make sure to dry up any standing water so to avoid a mosquito infestation.
  • Pull out the garden hose and connect it to the outside spigot. Spray the lawn furniture down and get it ready for use. It’s probably best to leave the cushions and umbrella in storage for a bit longer, but the table and the chair frames can be cleaned up now.
  • Think about what you want your vegetable garden to look like and start planning what you will plant and were. Be thoughtful of any vegetables that should be planted near others, and plan your rows carefully. Start looking to source seeds and get all prepared for your vegetable garden planting.

While your plants and garden beds are perfectly fine to be left alone for these weeks, you can really make the most of the spring bloom by doing a couple of simple tasks around the yard during these cold weather weeks.
