With winter in full swing, you may not give too much thought to the state of your lawn, garden, or landscaping features; buried under all that snow and ice, why would you? According to the team at Mason, OH’s Dan’s Organic Lawn and Landscaping, the area’s best landscape services company, now is a good time to start. Preparing your property for the upcoming season of yard work before Spring arrives means you’re making it easier to handle the eventual work you want to get completed, which means better end results.

But what do you do? How do you prepare your property for spring plantings and work? Let’s take a look:

Initial Assessment: Take a look at the entire lawn and think about what you would like to do come spring. Do you want to promote more tree growth? If so, cut back some of the branches. Are there blank spots in the lawn? You’ll want to fill those up to prevent crabgrass growth.

Cleaning It Up: The major task of this preparation work involves clearing the yard and garden of old, dead leaves, branches, and other debris. What you do not want is a suffocated lawn or garden that hasn’t seen the sun since October, so get the rake out and get to work.

Mulching for the Future: Mulch is like your best friend when it comes to ensuring the health and vibrancy of your property. Fertilizer and mulch should be spread over flower beds, a 3” layer of mulch should be placed around trees, and lawns should be aerated and fertilized.

Of course, if you’re looking to make your property look better than ever, consider working with the professionals at Dan’s Organic Lawn and Landscaping. No other lawn care and landscaping service can compare in terms of quality of work, expertise, and cost.
