May 23 SPRING CLEANING CHECKLIST FOR YOUR LAWN
It’s time to give your lawn and backyard a little TLC! The inside of your house needs a good spring cleaning…so why not the outside, too?
Here’s a checklist of all the tasks you should aim to accomplish every Spring to give your yard a much-needed facelift.
- Clean Up Debris
The most unpleasant yet important part: cleaning up the winter mess. Rake up dead leaves and collect twigs for composting. Dispose of other debris in the garbage or recycling.
- Mow the Lawn
If the weather isn’t quite favorable for mowing yet, at least get the lawnmower cleaned up and ready for action.
- Treat Bare Patches
Clean up dead grass, reseed, and fertilize in areas that need it.
- Prune Trees and Shrubs
You even want to prune all your plants before you do all that raking in the beginning!
- Aerate and Re-Edge Your Gardens
Your lawn may need to be re-edged after a winter of neglect. This especially goes for any plantings or garden beds. Soil needs to be freshened up to allow plant roots to absorb water and nutrients.
- Beat the Weeds
Get a head-start on those weeds before they get the chance to take over!
- Put Down Fresh Mulch
Mulch insulates soil perfectly and helps prevent weed growth. Plus, it gives your yard a fresh and sharp look, highlighting its beauty right in time for the warmer weather.
- Plant Fresh Blooms
Need a pop of color? Some fresh annual plantings in your yard are the icing on the cake.
