Rejuvenate and Maintain Lawns: Tips for Spring Lawn Care
Spring is here! That means warmer temps and a seemingly brighter sun. That also means it's time to rejuvenate and clean up a yard that has more than likely been a little neglected during the fall and winter months.
Have no fear. The Grounds Guys® have some great tips to help you manicure your yard. Your lawn will be the envy of the neighborhood!
- Remove Debris
Besides covering lawns, fallen leaves from the fall months can collect in shrubs and flowerbeds. Rake the ground between the shrubs to remove any leaves that have collected there over the last season.
Some trees and shrubs need pruning in the fall while others are best trimmed in spring. Take time to trim trees and shrubs and remove any unnecessary branches.
- Dispose of Timber
Clean up fallen timber. Winter months can add extra weight to branches causing weaker ones to break. Remove any fallen branches to avoid tripping and mower damage.
- Clean the Flowerbed
Adding fresh mulch to a flowerbed helps insulate plants and conserve moisture. Once unwanted debris is removed from the flowerbed, add fresh mulch to protect plants.
- Service the Irrigation System
Before putting the irrigation system to work for the spring and summer, check lines and sprinkler heads to ensure they are in working order.
By following these tips from The Grounds Guys you will be able to maintain your lawn for the spring and summer months.
