Time to ditch your winter coat and blanket – spring time is here! Go find your landscaping clothes because it’s time to welcome the warm and blooming season of the year. Begin getting your hands dirty with these five early landscaping tips that might just get your neighbors jealous.
Clear Your Front Yard
Even without us telling you, we’re probably sure that you know the first thing to prepare for landscaping is to clean up. Get rid of fallen branches, leaves, or debris that have scattered around your yard. Make sure that everything is cleared up.
Plant New Grass
Check if the soil is in good condition for planting. If you’re not sure about this, have a professional conduct a soil test to know what nutrients your soil needs to absorb. To improve your soil, you can add organic matter at the time of planting. Doing so will help protect your soil against scorching heat, plant diseases, and pest infestation.
Prepare Your Mower Blades
Now would be the perfect time to sharpen your mower blades if you haven’t done this during winter. Unplug the lawn mower before taking the blades of for your safety. Freshly sharpened blades will cut the grass precisely rather than just tearing the grass.
Have An Inspiration
Get inspired by the landscape design next door or you may try looking around the area. Some homeowners flip through home magazines or search through the Internet. Nothing beats the will of a person who is inspired.
Plant Your Garden
Not only will you be needing grass for landscape, but if you really want to make your front yard look extra special, then you might want to invest in beautiful trees, shrubs, and flowers. Make sure that the colors compliment your home’s color scheme.
