Today is the first day of spring! We’ve been getting used to some pretty spring like weather thus far and it’s exciting to finally be in the season of colorful blooms, fragrant outdoor aromas and gorgeous landscaping! Are you wondering what you can do to get your yard ready for spring? Take a look at 4 things you can start doing today:
1. Cut back last season’s growth on ornamental grasses. You want to get rid of the old before the new comes in, because separating the two is quite a difficult task.
2. Rake the lawn to remove all debris and dead grass that collected during winter. This is also good prep for the first mowing.
3. If you planted perennials for winter interest, now is the time to cut them back and clean them up.
4. Time to plant early season veggies. If the ground is workable here are some that would be great to plant: carrots, peas, lettuce, spinach, radishes.
What are you looking forward to seeing in your yard this spring?
