Although we’re still in the midst of falling snow and cold winter temperatures here in Ohio, it’s time to start thinking about prepping your property for spring. At Rice’s Tree Service & Landscaping, we provide these services to all home and business owners throughout the Medina area. If this is something you enjoy doing yourself, we recommend the following clean-up tips for a beautiful, thriving landscape in the coming spring.
1. Clean Up the Yard
When the snow has melted, there’s often a mess left underneath it. This can occur even if you cleaned up your yard in the fall. Wind, thunderstorms, ice, and snowplows can deposit large tree branches, stray garbage, and other items on your property. Clean up all tree branches and limbs, fallen leaves, trash, and any other items from the yard, bushes, and flower beds.
2. Inspect Trees & Shrubs
The harsh winter weather can do quite a number on your yard. Windstorms can blow over unhealthy trees, and ice and snow can damage unsuspecting bushes. Inspect the trees, shrubs, and plants in your landscaping for any broken or damaged areas. You can prune them yourselves or call in a professional like Rice’s Tree Service.
3. Lay Down Fertilizer
While you can diligently take care of your lawn every fall, there will still be dry patches of grass and ailing trees and bushes that will need a boost in the spring. Adding fertilizer to your lawn, soil, trees, plants, and flower beds will give them the nutrition they need to grow and thrive when the warmer weather hits. If you’re unsure of what type of fertilizer to use in your yard, feel free to give us a call. We’re happy to help.
