March comes in like a lion and out like a lamb, as the saying goes, leaving spring weather in its wake. With Valentine’s Day behind us and the close of February approaching faster than two lovers’ heartbeats, we thought it’d be a good time to talk about preparing your landscape for spring. Here are a few ideas to get you started in your garden as the start of spring approaches.
Perennials: Plant them to give your landscape a flourish of color quickly. From crocuses to irises, daffodils, tulips, and more, there are many beautiful blooms to choose from that make an easy addition to any garden.
Prep Beds: Fertilize all of your beds and planting areas with two to four inches of fresh mulch. Be sure to also add fertilizer to your lawn after raking and aerating your grassy spots.
Pruning: Ridding of dead leafs, pruning flowers and the like will promote growth in your garden.
Irrigation: Though April showers bring May flowers, now is the perfect time to check up on your irrigation systems and make sure they are functioning properly so that your plants and lawn can be adequately watered to ensure a fruitful garden.
