Make Your Yard Stand Out This Spring
*In this blog from Johnson’s Landscaping Service, factors and tips to make your landscape burst with beauty are written about. Steps to avoid, as well as beneficial steps are evident as well.
Spring is one of the most important times for landscape maintenance, and proper care keeps your yard looking fresh all year round. Here are some quick tips that will help maintain a beautiful landscape:
The first step in maintaining your garden is to take stock of the landscape. Check the soil to make sure it is ideal for your garden, making sure it’s got the correct pH levels. Winter weather can alter your soil, creating an environment that can hinder the growth of your plants, such as the compacting of soil. It’s also good to check on other factors that may affect your landscape, such as drainage or how weather and climate affect your plants. Before doing any other work, it’s good to mow your lawn to help promote better root development.
One of the biggest mistakes homeowners make in landscape maintenance is improper watering. To ensure proper watering, install a simple drip-irrigation water system, which can be attached to a spigot with a timer. This way, you can maintain your garden without having to worry whether or not your plants are getting enough water. It can also be beneficial to lay down fertilizer to help stimulate growth early in the season. Be sure to check what kind of fertilizer is best for your plants, as if it is not used properly it could actually damage your plants. If there are patches of dead or brown grass, seed your lawn and cover it with fertilizer to bring your grass back to life.
Spring-time landscape maintenance will set the tone for the rest of the year. A properly maintained lawn will help your house look great, and can even help raise the value of your home. Money Magazine wrote that landscaping can bring up the recovery value of your home by 100 to 200% at selling time. So whether you’re trying to sell your house, or just want a beautiful yard, following these simple tips can help enhance your garden year round.
*Watering the right way is essential to the health of your landscape. The correct and ideal soil will also make big differences. Caring for your landscape the correct way will result in absolute beauty. Landscape maintenance is the key to displaying your bountiful and beautiful property.
