7 Landscape Services for Spring

Spring is a busy time when it comes to maintaining your landscaping. This can be the opportune time to hire a landscaping service to help improve the beauty of your outdoor space. Here are seven one-time landscape services that can save you time this spring when you hire a professional.

  1. Yard cleanup. Before you can begin planting, edging or mowing, you need the debris from winter cleared away. Hire a landscape service to perform yard cleanup and remove all the branches, leaves and other debris from your yard.
  2. Aeration. If you have thick thatch that is confining your grass roots, your lawn may not be getting the water and nutrients it needs. A landscaper can aerate your lawn to loosen soil and perforate thatch.
  3. Mulching. Did you lose mulch over the winter? Have a landscaper deliver and spread new mulch in your gardens and landscape areas.
  4. Overseeding and fertilizing. Is your lawn sparse? Overseeding and fertilizer can help boost grass growth. Landscape pros know the right fertilizer and seeding methods to get the best results.
  5. Update your irrigation. Don’t wait until summer to update your irrigation. Get a new system installed before the hot weather arrives.
  6. Add new features. Update your patio or backyard with some new features. Consider an outdoor fireplace or fire pit to add light and warmth to your outdoor living space.
  7. Upgrade your outdoor lighting. Outdoor lighting can help you enjoy your landscaping at night or make your home more secure or safer. Consult a landscaper on ways to update your outdoor lighting for function and aesthetics.

Give your yard the professional help it needs this spring by hiring a landscaping company. It will save you time and ensure your yards are ready for summer.

Planning for Spring Mulch Installation

Spring is the time for many once-a-year landscaping projects. New flowers can be planted, trees can be pruned and your lawn can be aerated or seeded. Another project you want to add to your spring landscaping to-do list is mulching. Spring is the perfect time to add mulching to protect your landscaping from unwanted weeds and help with moisture loss prevention.

What Mulch Type is Best?

Mulch can be many different materials. It can be plant clippings, bark, pine straw, wood shavings or even rock. The right mulch depends on where you are using it and what you want to achieve. Organic mulches like bark, wood shavings and pine straw can have the benefit of adding nutrients to the soil as they decompose. Rock and gravel do not add nutrients, but also does not decompose or need replacement as often.

To determine the best mulch for your landscaping, discuss the options with your local landscaper. Many quality landscape companies will deliver and install mulch. They can help you decide which will work best in different areas. You may want pine straw for sloped areas as it is less likely to wash or blow away and bark around your tree roots. Rock can look beautiful and give your landscaping a clean appearance. Professional mulch installation can make your yard look neat and tidy while preventing weeds and moisture loss.

As soon as your planting is done, schedule your mulch installation. You will want your mulch in place as soon as possible to stop weeds before they begin sprouting up around your shrubs, flowers and other plants. Most mulch only needs to be added once a year, helping protect your landscaping until next spring.
