The winter season may not be your favorite season; it comes with a mess on your neat lawn, patios, and driveways and it happens every year. So, you can’t do away with the season, but you can adopt ways of recovering your neat yard and landscape.
Listed are several ways to clean up your yard after a messy winter season!
The trees and vegetation in your yard shed leaves, branches, and twigs during the winter season, causing debris build-up in your yard. So, you can use a rake to remove all those leaves and twigs lying on your lawn. Also, the delicate and small debris can make a compost pile.
Prune and Trim Shrubs and Tree
The Spring season is the perfect period to prune and trim your trees. You will notice that the storms damaged some branches of your shrubs and trees during winter. So, to enhance the growth of your trees, prune the damaged branches and those affected by diseases. Also, you can remove the burlap if you have your shrubs and trees covered during winter.
After winter, the mulch used to protect your plants may appear stale and unpleasant. Be sure to remove or replace the mulch from your garden; you can also plant new plants for the season.
The most affected part of your landscape during winter is your lawn. The storms and ice build-up damages the good-looking green grass in your yard. While reseeding is mainly done during fall, you can try to fill in the empty parts of your lawn. Also, trim your lawn when the grass is 4-5 inches tall to avoid further damages due to temperature changes.
Fertilize For Spring
Spring is knocking; thus, it is the perfect time to fertilize your yard. Use the ideal fertilizer with crabgrass resistance and strictly follow the given instruction to avoid over-fertilization.
Arrange Your Outdoor Furniture
Since the summer season is coming, it is the right time to get the outdoor furniture from your garage or basement. Get that fancy outdoor furniture out and place it in the best location in your yard.
