Winter Landscaping Tips for a Beautiful Spring

It may seem like winter just started, but spring is almost here! With the weather already warming up, it’s a good time to start getting your lawn ready for the change in seasons. Not only will you be spending more time outdoors soon, but spring is prime growing season for many types of plants. These are the things you’ll want to do now to ensure a healthy, beautiful lawn in the spring.

You should have already been removing leaves and debris from your lawn, but if you haven’t, go ahead and do that. Letting leaves, pine straw, and other debris gather on your lawn can trap water, which can lead to disease, mildew, and fungus. If you’ve been a little lax, get it cleaned up now. Leaves can be bagged and discarded, often with your regular trash, or turned into an inexpensive, efficient mulch for your trees and shrubs.

Speaking of mulch, now is a great time to spread it around your existing plants. Mulch helps the soil retain moisture, protect roots from the weather, and give your landscaping a neater, more defined look. You’ll especially want to mulch if you’re planting anything new. Adding spring flowers now means you’ll be able to enjoy beautiful colors, lovely smells, and all the other benefits of flowers in your yard.
