It’s finally time to throw open the windows and doors and enjoy the sweet smell of springtime air. As you enjoy the sun on your face and the breeze in your hair, you may notice that your landscaping could use a little rejuvenation.
If you neglected your residential landscaping service over the winter – no judgment, and you’re not alone. While it is always recommended to continue your residential landscaping service year-round, you are not too late in the season to still take advantage of fresh landscaping for summer.
Springtime residential landscaping services can give you everything you need to beautify your garden just in time for summer. What might this work entail? Well, it really depends on the current state of your landscaping and what you would like it to look like in the end. Spring residential landscaping services often include but are not limited to the following areas.
A major Yard Clean Up
This is where your landscaper will chop all the grass that has become overgrown, deadhead flowers, weed landscaping beds, and apply the first round of fertilizer.
Your trees and shrubs will get a nice once over, removing any dead branches, pruning and trimming back overgrowth where needed. Last year’s mulch will get cleared out, and a fresh batch of much will get put down.
If your property needs it, clean-up services can include moss removal, power washing, and seeding. Whatever your landscaping needs to shed the winter blues, your residential landscaping service team can take care of it.
Getting Ready for Summer
Once all of last year’s mess has been cleared out, your residential landscaper can be focusing on getting your yard ready for summer.
A high nitrogen fertilizer is often applied to give grass, plants and flowers the nutrients they need after a long, wet, cold winter.
Trees and shrubs will get a once over to ensure that they are still in good health (not to worry if they aren’t, there is almost always a solution). If lawn or tree pests are an issue on your property, pest control options can be looked at.
Full-scale turf-edging, mowing, and trimming will also get underway, and these maintenance services will continue throughout the spring and summer. If you are planting, your residential landscapers will probably also begin introducing spring plants now, with summer plants coming a little later.
Continued Residential Landscaping Service
The easiest way to ensure that your landscaping looks great year-round, regardless of the season, is to maintain your landscaping services all year. But isn’t that expensive? No, not as much as you may think.
Fall and winter require a lot less work than spring and summer landscaping; there’s no need for regular lawn mowing, weeding, watering, or fertilizer. And, if your landscaping is correctly maintained over the winter, then come spring, there is a lot less to do – and that might actually save you money. Plus, your landscaping will look great all year, which is nice, especially in West Coast climates, where we can enjoy outdoor spaces most of the year.
