When spring arrives, your yard might not be looking its best. A long winter can lead to a lot of dirt, mildew, and dead plants around your property. This is why spring cleaning is so important. If you want your yard looking its best this summer, start preparing now. Here are three spring cleaning tips for your yard this year.
One of the first things you should do is clean up the debris in your yard. This could be anything from cigarette butts to old weeds. Perennial weeds live for more than two years, so do your best to clean them up now to avoid cleaning them in the summer. If you need help, bring in a weed control service to take care of it for you.
There are many different approaches you can take to clean up debris. Trash and compost can help eliminate most of it. So, assess the damage that’s appeared over the winter, then grab a rake and start cleaning it up.
Your yard’s walkways need to be accessible, but a winter’s worth of snow and grime can make them dirty. Take some time to wash them. For lighter dirt, your garden hose might handle everything. But, if there’s too much, or it’s packed too tightly, you can consider renting or buying a power washer to take care of it. Once the walkways are clean, not only will your yard look better, but you can easily see any places that are broken and need to be fixed.
If you have lawn furniture, you should check it over during your spring cleaning. As you have a weed control service come in, you’ll need to move your furniture aside. This is a great time to inspect it for damage. Replace anything that’s broken and could injure someone. Then, consider whether it’s time to upgrade anything. This could include pieces of furniture or cushions. A few changes can make your yard look bright and inviting for summer.
Whether you’re working with a weed control service or doing all the work yourself, spring cleaning is an endeavor. If you’re not sure where to begin, start with these three tips. They will get you in a good position to get your yard ready for the warmer weather.
