Spring Landscaping: Steps to Spruce up your Landscape

Share this post:

Check for winter damage

Although we had a very mild winter, the temperature fluctuations can still have an impact on your landscape.  So before you do anything, take a look around your property to see if you see evidence of damage caused by cold air, strong winds and snow. 
  • Do your evergreen trees have browning and/or broken tree limbs?
  • Are there any brown spots on or holes in your lawn?
  • Is there any damage done to your plants from salt used during the winter?
  • Are any plant roots exposed?
Once you have a good idea of what needs fixing you can pick a starting point and decide if you would like to complete the projects yourself or hire a trained landscaping professional. 

Clean up garden beds

Cleaning up your garden beds is one of the quickest ways to transform your landscape. Simply remove dead and dying plants, fallen leaves, and weeds. This will help your planting beds look beautiful and well-cared for. This will also give you a chance to show off your thriving plants and improve your home’s curb appeal.

Get rid of destructive insects

As you clean up your garden beds, you should also be on the lookout for insect eggs, especially in early spring. By getting rid of them early, you stop them from feasting on your flowers and plants later. Be sure to look on the underside of leaves, the top layer of soil, and other areas in your planting beds.

Cut back Perennials

Any perennials left from the previous year should be cut down to the ground. This is actually good for you plants-especially those that are damaged or diseased. Check back soon there is more to come!

But if you’re looking to get the job done quickly, you can hire a professional landscaping company in New Milford, CT.
