The winter months can wreak havoc on our yards. On top of that there’s many things we put away, cover up or just ignore in the winter. Here’s a handy list to get your yard ready heading into spring.
Clean up the obvious
Once the snow leaves there’s going to be some litter and waste that may have blown in during a storm. If you have a dog you may also have some other clean up to do that was hidden under the snow.
Rake your lawn
You’ll want to break out your rake and give you lawn a pass. Get any dead leaves, twigs, and pinecones off the lawn to help keep your lawn nice and healthy going into the spring.
Clean up garden beds
Remove any dead leaves or stalks from perennials and plants. You can also add some plant fertilizer to the soil once the frost is gone to help established plants.
Inspect you trees and shrubs
You’ll want to walk around your property and inspect trees and shrubs for any broken or damaged limbs. Removing these now will prevent them from falling in the spring or summer unexpectedly.
Organize your tools
You may have stowed some items in the winter. Get them ready for use and make sure they’re in good working order.
Take out your garden hose, patio furniture and anything else you had stashed in the shed or garage for winter. Uncover your AC and unwrap any shrubs/perennials you had protected from the snow and ice.
Walk your lawn
Look for damaged spots to fill with fresh soil and seed once it’s warm enough.
