5 Things You Must Do In Your Yard For Spring

If you want to help bring your lawn and gardens out of hibernation and give them a kick start for the growing season. These are the top things to do for spring.

1. Fertilise Your Lawn 

Its time to fertilise your lawns! With the warmer weather arriving its time to green up your lawn and give it a good kick start to the growing season. See our Summer 2013 Newsletter (found on our website) for information on what type of fertilisers suit your lawn best. If you don’t have the time, feel free to call us and book in a fertilising service for your lawn.

2. Weed the Garden 

It’s time to get out and give the garden beds a good weed. Since things have been slow to grow in winter we tend to ignore them, but if you don’t get out there and clean them up now, they will be out of control in a matter of weeks. Time to get out in the spring sunshine and pull them out quick!
Weeding can be time consuming and messy. If you would prefer to leave this to a professional, we are more than happy to provide you with a quote.

3. Add Wetting Agents to Lawns and Gardens 

Since we have had quite a dry winter, it is highly possible that your soil has dried out. When soil has been dry for an extended period, it loses its ability to absorb and retain water. To make the most of the rain coming our way, applying a good wetting agent to your lawn and gardens this month is a must.

4. Mulch 

Yes, I know we are always going on about this, but its time to do it again! Mulching is the best thing you can do for your garden. Not only does mulching make it look clean and fresh, it is also a great way to nourish your garden, retain moisture and keep the weeds at bay. Give us a call to organise a quote and to discuss which mulches will suit your needs and budget the best.

5. Clean and Mend 

Now that warmer weather is coming, we will all be spending more time outside eating, relaxing and entertaining! This is a great time to check outdoor furniture and outdoor entertaining areas in preparation for summer BBQ’s and parties. Wooden furniture may need to be repainted or re-oiled. Nuts and bolts should be checked and tightened. Clean the barbecue and refill the gas bottles. Paving and other hard surfaces will benefit from a vigorous sweep to remove accumulated leaves and dirt. Pavers may need to be weed sprayed and have a new layer of sand added. Mossy or slippery paths can be high pressure water cleaned.

If you are more of a supervisor than a worker, we are happy to do any of this work for you while you sit back and have a nice glass of spring wine. Call us for a quote.
