Early Spring Landscaping: The Elements Of Early Treatment

Posted on: 28 December 2021

When it comes to landscaping services, early spring is often the busiest time. You might wonder why you should reach out to your landscaper in the early spring, and the reasons could surprise you. Don't fall into the misconception that you don't need landscaping until everything is back to growing lush and thriving. In fact, early spring landscaping services are among the best things that you can do for your lawn. Here's a look at some of the things you should discuss with your landscaper.

Check For Winter Damage

The first thing that you should do when the freeze of winter is finally over is to call your landscaper for a general well-check. He or she will come out and examine the shrubs, trees, and other foliage on the property to make sure that everything weathered the winter temperatures well and will bounce back as spring brings its vibrancy and new growth. 

If anything did sustain apparent damage over the winter, the sooner it's addressed, the better. Your landscaper can give you recommendations for the best course of action and will help you to do what's necessary to help your plants recover.

Test Your Irrigation

Once your landscaper has done a thorough evaluation of your foliage, he or she will move on to your irrigation system. After the winter season, it's important to test your irrigation system to be sure that it's holding pressure and distributing water as it should. After all, any residual water in the system over the winter could have frozen and broken an irrigation line, so it's important that you test the system early so you can repair it if needed before your watering cycles start.

Fertilize Your Yard

Early fertilizer application can be the one thing that makes the difference between a yard that grows back lush and green this spring and one that just holds on and sort of fills back in. Talk with your landscaper about the best early-season fertilizer product for your yard and have them treat the grass as well as your ornamental foliage so that it all has the best possible start after the long winter months.

Your lawn has been through a lot throughout the winter with snow, freezing temperatures, and minimal nutrient access. The more proactive you are about setting it up for growing season success, the better luck you'll have as it starts to come back from dormancy.

Constructing and Filling Raised Garden Beds

Hi there, I am Kirk Blathers. I would like to share my knowledge about raised garden beds, so I created this website. My raised garden beds house tons of bulbs that push up out of the ground as soon as the warm weather arrives. Alongside the beds, I have a few tubs full of fresh herbs and vegetables that climb the trellises. I would love to share the information I've gathered about created raised bed frames from scratch. Some people have used actual bed frames while others created the beds out of wood materials. I will also discuss soil, seed, and fertilizer selection for each bed size and type. I hope that the information I share will help you create a beautiful set of raised beds for your yard. Thanks.
