Preparing Your Yard for Spring

The winter season is underway and while it may not seem like it, the time is now to start planning for your springtime projects! Winter can leave your yard, trees and shrubs weakened after so many months of dormancy beneath a layering of snow. To help your yard and landscaping recover fully after this winter season ends, an obvious but necessary first step is to conduct a thorough cleaning.

Get started by picking up branches, leaves and any other debris that has collected over the winter. Raking, naturally, is necessary, but an air blowers will also be very useful. By thoroughly cleaning up your yard, you’ll avoid the risk of debris getting caught up in the blades of your lawn mower. Yard debris can also impede fertilizers and nutrients from absorbing correctly into the soil.
