Mid-April Clean Up - What to do and What not to do on your landscaping...

Updated: Apr 19

Hey everyone, the weather is slowly starting to change for the better, the sun stays up longer and bulbs are beginning to bloom.




What should you do or not do


You may be wondering what sorts of things you can do to your yard and outdoor space to make sure you make the most of the upcoming warmer seasons so I’ve come up with a list of some can do’s and some don’ts this early in the season.


Do:

  • Rake up the dead stuff from your lawn allowing some fresh air into the grass. Overdress and seed to make sure the grass gets a good chance to get an early start.

  • Clean up the beds, get rid of winter debris, weeds etc. Add some soil if needed or mulch if that’s your preference.

  • Put some annuals out in urns or planters if you are dying to have some colour around. Just be sure to watch for frost warnings and cover them up or bring them inside if it looks likely.

  • Start thinking of what you do want to plant when the time is right. If you’re not certain, call or send me and email and I can work with you to come up with a plan that will bring your outdoor space to life just the way you imagined it could be!

Don't

  • Plant anything! Too early, the ground is too cold, and the risk of frost still exists.


That’s all for now, check back often for quick tips and ideas.


Keep those fingers dirty!
