Restoring Your Lawn
After a harsh winter or a season of neglect, your lawn can look worn out and patchy. Restoring it to its former lush glory doesn’t have to be a daunting task. Begin with assessing the damage. Clear out any debris and leaves. Aerate the soil to improve air circulation to the grassroots, allowing them to breathe and absorb nutrients more efficiently. Once that’s done, consider overseeding the patchy areas with the right grass seed for your region. Lastly, water regularly and fertilize with a balanced mix to encourage growth. Within a few weeks, with the right care, you’ll notice a greener, fuller, and healthier lawn greeting you.
Spring is often considered the rebirth season for plants, and pruning plays an integral role in ensuring they thrive during this period. As the days grow longer and temperatures rise, plants push out new growth. But before they do, it’s essential to remove dead, diseased, or overgrown branches to channel their energy more efficiently. When pruning, make clean, angled cuts and avoid tearing the bark. Remember to sanitize your pruning tools between plants to prevent the spread of diseases. Whether it’s shaping your rose bushes or thinning out a fruit tree, a good spring prune prepares your plants for a season of abundant growth and blooming.
Sprinkler System Audit
A well-maintained sprinkler system is essential for a thriving landscape. As seasons change, so do the watering needs of your plants. Conducting a sprinkler system audit in early spring ensures that your plants receive adequate water without wastage. Begin by checking for any visible damage like broken sprinkler heads or leaky pipes. Turn the system on and observe if each zone covers the intended area without overspraying or creating puddles. Adjust the timing according to the plants’ requirements in each zone. Remember, a properly calibrated sprinkler system not only conserves water but also saves money and promotes a healthier garden.
