Spring Yard Cleanup Checklist

Spring is one of the most important times of year to make sure you are properly maintaining the health of your lawn. A spring cleanup is essential to setting yourself up for a beautiful outdoor living space once the nice weather is here! Whether you are attempting this yourself or hiring a professional landscaper to take care of your cleanup, here’s what you need to make sure you’re doing.

Removing Debris

There is always significant debris leftover from winter, whether or not there were a lot of storms. High winds cause branches, sticks, leaves, and other debris to pile up across your grass. Along with being unsightly, without removing the debris you will not be able to take any further steps to improve the health of your grass. Removing this debris reveals your grass underneath and leaves clear space for planting & mulching.

Dethatch

Spring is the time of year to dethatch your lawn. Detatching means removing the layer of weeds, dead grass, and roots that accumulate on the lawn’s surface throughout the year. Lawns should be dethatched at least once per year. Spring is a good time for this because following the dethatching, you can start planting!

Seeding & Planting

Spring is the time to plant the seeds for summer & fall! Go over your grass with fresh seed to have a luscious green lawn once the warm weather is here. Plant whatever you want to see bloom in your edges where you will place mulch.

Mulch & Edging

Mulch is like the finishing touch of your spring yard cleanup. Mulch comes in a variety of finishes, including dark, natural wood, and red stained. Keep in mind that more natural stains of mulch will best keep their color throughout the season.
