Cleaning Up Your Lawn and Garden After Winter

Useful Advice to Restore Your Lawn and Garden in the Spring

It was a long, harsh winter but spring has finally sprung. As the ice and snow melts away and your lawn and garden begin to emerge, you may notice that your yard could use a serious spring cleanup. Though you might be anxious to get out there and clean things up, there is a right and wrong way to do it. For instance, performing work that doesn’t need to be done during the spring, can actually damage your soil and plants. However, a thorough clean that is done properly will prepare your yard for a season of healthy growth and ultimately, help your home stand out.

How to do a Spring Lawn and Garden Clean-up the Right Way 

Go on and give your yard the kick start it needs after enduring the winter season. After all, spring cleanups are essential to ensuring your lawn and garden stays healthy all summer long. Here are a few easy steps to perform a spring garden cleanup and why it’s always best to work with a professional landscaping company:  

  • Make Sure Your Soil is Dry: If you begin your spring cleanup too early, you may be inadvertently compacting the soil. Soil compaction can make it challenging for plants to grow, so it’s best to wait for the soil to get dry before walking around in your garden. To test the soil, take a small handful and squeeze it into a ball. At waist height, drop the ball and if it remains in its shape, it indicates that your soil is still too moist. If the ball breaks, it may be safe for you to proceed with your cleanup. An easier way to determine whether or not you should be starting your cleanup is to contact your local landscaper. 
  • Make Way for New Growth: In the fall, you may have left old leaves and dead stems as resources for animals to take shelter during the during. However, it’s time to get rid of these materials in order to make way for new growth. You may also have to deal with and remove things like litter and animal waste that may have ended up on your property during the winter. Since some debris can be hazardous, you can rely on a professional landscaper to remove these materials from your property safely. 
  • Prune Trees and Shrubs: Even if you’ve protected your trees and shrubs from winter by wrapping them in burlap, removing the protective layer may still reveal winter damage. It’s important to carefully prune any damaged branches to encourage new growth. Additionally, if you have perennials, be sure to trim off any dead leaves or branches to also help boost new growth. Pruning is a delicate task, so if you have little experience and need professional help, reach out to your landscaping experts. 
  • Rake and Fertilize Your Lawn: If there is a thick layer of leaves on the ground, they should be removed or they may prevent new growth. Gently use a rake and add the excess leaves to your compost bin or save them to use as mulch. Or, you can scatter any extra leaves in between any larger perennials that are planted farther apart as an effective way to keep weeds from growing. Once your lawn is free from leaves, you can apply a fertilizer, or have a professional do it for you, to get it ready for your summer enjoyment.

The Differences between Evergreen vs. Deciduous Trees

Helpful Advice for Choosing the Right Plants and Trees for Your Outdoor Space 

When it comes to choosing plants and trees for your yard, it’s important to consider including evergreen or deciduous plants based on the intended purpose. Not all greenery functions in the same way, and one of the biggest differences between evergreen and deciduous trees involve their foliage and how they adapt to different seasons. For instance, evergreens do not need to drop their leaves in order to conserve water during certain periods of the year, whereas deciduous plants will drop their leaves and remain dormant in the winter to reduce water loss and ensure they survive the cold weather season.

A Guide to Christmas Tree Safety

Advice From Your Trusted Landscaping and Tree Service Company

With the holidays quickly approaching, it is time to start decorating your home for Christmas. However, when it comes to setting up your tree, there are several safety tips you must keep in mind to ensure this Christmas season is memorable for all the right reasons. Decorating your Christmas tree can be one of the most carefree and enjoyable parts of the holiday. However, be sure to exercise caution during the process to prevent fires and other tree related injuries. Read below to learn more about Christmas tree safety from your professional landscaping service. We want you and your family to enjoy a safe and happy holiday season.

4 Christmas Tree Safety Tips  

Christmas trees are a perfect addition to any home during the holidays. Each is beautiful and unique, but a decorative tree can pose a serious risk if you do not follow proper precautions during set up. Here are a few safety tips for this holiday season:

  1. Buy Fresh Trees: When shopping for a Christmas tree, select one that is green and fresh. Look for a pine or spruce tree because they have flexible needles that bend, not break. In addition, needles that are hard to pull off are indicative of a fresh tree. Finally, inspect the trunk and ensure that it is sticky with sap. A fresh tree is less likely to become a fire hazard. If you are buying an artificial tree, look for a “fire resistant” label.
  2. Tree Placement: Once you have selected the right tree, cut off roughly 2 inches from the base and place it in a secure, water-holding stand. Make sure you keep water in the stand at all times to prevent your tree from drying out. Avoid placing your tree near fireplaces, radiators, or other sources that emit heat. Do not place your tree where it blocks doorways or exits.
  3. Inspect Your Lights: For Christmas trees, only use indoor lights that do not emit heat, such as LED lights. If you are using multiple strands of lights, plug them into various circuits around your home so you do not overload a single electrical outlet. Check for broken sockets, frayed wires, and loose bulbs. Discard and replace any damaged lights immediately. Lastly, ensure that your Christmas tree lights are unplugged in the evenings before bed.
  4. Ornamental Attachments: Take proper precautions when hanging ornaments from your Christmas trees. Use a ladder or step stool for out of reach places in order to avoid knocking your tree over. Fragile ornaments should not be on the lower part of your tree where children and pets have easy access. Additionally, lighted candles or flammable items should never be placed anywhere on your Christmas tree.

Choose an experienced landscaping and tree service company for all your landscaping and tree needs.
