Once the snow has melted and the temperatures begin to rise, it’s time to start thinking about getting your yard ready for spring planting. Before you can even begin to plant flowers and new shrubs, you’ll most likely need to perform some much-needed yard maintenance. The team at Rice’s Tree Service & Landscaping recommends the following six steps for a beautifully groomed yard in the Broadview Heights area.
1. Spring Cleanup
One of the first things you can do to prepare for spring planting is to clean up any debris in your yard that may be leftover from the fall and winter season. Wind and snow can carry a multitude of items onto your property, such as:
- Dead leaves
- Stray garbage
- Yard debris
After you remove all of this yard waste, you’ll have a lawn ready and waiting for planting flowers, adding shrubs, and creating a beautiful landscape.
2. Bed Edging & Maintenance
Once the debris has been removed from your yard, it’s time to bring life back to the landscape with careful flower bed edging and maintenance. Our professional team will repair or replace any bed edging that has been damaged, as well as perform these flower bed maintenance tasks:
- Remove old mulch and add new mulch
- Divide any overcrowded perennials
- Add nutrient-rich garden soil where needed
- Pull weeds and prune flowers
- Anything else that’s needed!
3. Shrub Trimming
Unfortunately, shrubs and bushes can become damaged during harsh winter weather. In order to keep them healthy and give them their best chance for optimal growth, they need to be pruned and trimmed correctly. Our professional landscapers know the best methods and times to prune the variety of shrubs in your yard, such as:
- Flowering shrubs
- Evergreen bushes
- Fruit bushes
- Small trees
- And more!
