Now is a great time for Spring landscape maintenance!
With a lot of people being stuck at home, now is a great time to get some chores done around the yard so you can feel good about your landscape as everything starts to green up and families spend more and more time outside! Here are some things that are perfect to get done around the yard right now!
1. Trimming shrubs and trees around the house: Making sure that limbs and shrubs are trimmed away from the siding, soffits and roof around the house is a great way to prevent rodents and other critters from making their way into your home, along with preventing any damage from happening to the exterior of your home.
2. Blowing leaves and debris from rock foundation beds: Organic debris left in rock beds will break down and turn to dirt within the rock, leaving weeds a great place to call home.
3. Trimming trees: Right now is the perfect time to trim trees and large shrubs because there is no leaves, making for a lot less weight and cleanup to do afterwards.
4. Make sure drainage is operating correctly: Look at gutters and make sure that water is getting discharged far away from the home as well as making sure your sump pump is working correctly.
