Here are some spring tune ups for your yard. If you are thinking of selling, these hints will get you ahead of your competition in creating the best curb appeal.
Survey Your Yard
Make note of tree limbs that should be removed. The ones that need the attention are those that overhang structures. Hire a specialist to maintain large trees. Rake mulch from the beds planted with bulbs before foliage appears, and refresh the mulch in other planting areas after soil warms. Check fences, steps, and pathways for disrepair caused by freezing and thawing.
Clean Tools and Order Plants
Tune up tools so everthing is ready when things start growing. Make note of what is missing, and order tools for the new growing season. Choose new plants for the garden so that you are ready for your spring planting.
Get Ready To Mow
Get your mower and leaf blower (if you have one) serviced. If you are able to do it yourself safely and properly, sharpen the mower blades yourself. Refill the mower with oil, install fresh spark plugs, and lubricate moving parts if necessary. Clear the lawn of winter debris and look for areas that need reseeding before you mow the lawn for the first time for the season.
Prune Trees and Shrubs
Remove dead and damaged branches from trees and shrubs after these plants resume spring growth. Thin and trim summer-blooming shrubs after they flower.
Clear the planting areas as soon as the soil can be worked. Remove sod, weeds, and debris. Spread your compost or manure over the soil and then cultivate it into the soil.
Apply balanced fertilizer around trees and shrubs when new growth appears.
Start a Compost Pile
Start a compost pile or start a compost bin if you haven't done so in previous years. This has to be turned regularly. This will be ready next spring.
