Prepare for Spring With These 5 Landscaping Tips, Fairfield, Ohio

Spring landscaping has a major effect on the curb appeal of a property. Whether it’s an expansive front lawn or a garden in front of the house, each section requires care to produce a positive first impression. If you’re unsure of where to start, here’s a guide to ensure that everything is properly prepped for the coming season.

5 Landscaping Tips for March

1. Clear the Garden

Dead or dying plants smother delicate shoots and prevent them from reaching their full potential. Clearing these away will boost the garden’s growth. Start by using an air blower or rake to remove piles of leaves. Go back through the area and pick up any leftover bits of debris to provide plenty of space for fresh greenery.

2. Apply Weed Preventer

Give your plants a chance to thrive by putting down a good granular weed preventer such as Hi-Yield™ weed preventer with dimension.  This will strengthen new growth while reducing the chances of weeds choking out the young plants. Applying these products before the soil temperature reaches 50-60 degrees is the best way to ensure success.

3. Mow the Lawn

landscapingGrass needs to be cut often during the first weeks of growth. Otherwise, the blades get too tall and prevent the roots from properly reproducing. Maintaining a mowing schedule of every five days during the first six weeks of spring will produce the lush, green lawn that you desire.

4. Trim Back Plants

Trimming back ornamental trees and perennials allow them to grow back healthier than ever. It boosts the flow of nutrients and focuses all of the plant’s energy into producing new shoots. Keep an eye out for new buds to ensure that you don’t accidentally cut them off before they germinate.

5. Put Down Mulch

Soils that drain well make it difficult for gardens and trees to retain moisture. Putting down a 2 inch layer of mulch is the simplest method for combating this issue. The shade that it produces will prevent the roots from drying out and help the greenery to flourish. However, it is best to wait until the damp winter soil dries somewhat before applying the mulch.
