Spring CleaningApril 10, 2020
With spring in full swing, your grass is growing, flowers are blooming, and your yard is teeming with life. A thorough spring cleanup is a great way to kick off the new year and make way for new growth.
Lawn and garden debris accumulates over the colder months and creates obstacles to emerging perennials. Clearing your beds before new blooms have sprouted is much easier than trying to do it while protecting young, delicate annuals.
Now is a good time to prune away any dead, dying, or damaged limbs or branches. Before leaves and buds have fully filled in, it’s easy to identify which branches need to go. Pruning early also helps your trees and shrubs focus new growth toward the healthy parts of the plant, resulting in robust development.
Lawn equipment works best and lasts longest if it’s well maintained. Now is the time to make sure your mower blades are sharpened and that any other lawn equipment is in good working order.
Spring is an exciting time of year that’s full of new life and promise. Thorough cleanup and lawn prep are key to making the most of the new growing season.
