We are about halfway through January and before you know it will start to really warm up and spring will be here. With the budding and blooming of new flowers and plants, it will be time to start enjoying your yard again. However, your yard will require some preparation prior to the warm weather. Help your yard bounce back from the rainy winter season and look its best this spring with the proper preparation steps.
- Aerate Your Yard- Aerating your lawn is one of the best ways to promoting a healthy yard. It allows fresh air to penetrate the soil as well as provides new ways for water to reach deep into the soil. This also help prevents over saturation. Aerating should be done towards the end of the rainy winter season. You can rent an aerator and do this yourself or you can have a professional do it as well.
- Take Early Measures to Prevent Weeds- At the first signs of new growth, be sure to take preventative measures against weeds. You will want to pull all small weeds as soon as you see them as they will only become more difficult to eradicate. You can also use different lawn solutions that help prevent the growth of weeds.
- Trim and Prune Your Perennials- Many trees and shrubs should always be trimmed and pruned to help facilitate future growth. Late winter and early spring are usually good times to start thinning out your trees and shrubs.
Preparing your lawn for spring is just as important as caring for it throughout the season.
