We’re excited to finally welcome the warm weather. However, that also means getting outside to maintain your lawn, bushes, driveway, oh and don’t forget those shrubs!

Here are a few tips and tricks to maintaining your property this spring.

  • Start raking up leaves and all of the leftover debris on your lawn that you missed last fall.

  • Test your soil. You should do this once every few years to get an accurate reading of the state of your lawn.

  • Determine if you need to fertilize based on the nutrition requirements needed by your soil conditions. If so, wait until the soil has warmed to ensure maximum use.  And remember, it’s crucial to evenly distribute the fertilizer.

  • Grass isn’t the thing that needs Fert lovin’.  Don’t forget to fertilize your trees and shrubs to get them jump started for the season.

  • Finally, inspect your irrigation system to make sure it’s in working condition. Did we mention we do irrigation services? Contact Peter@shadytreelandscaping.com, our resident irrigation expert, for more information!
