The cold of winter is nearly gone, which means the time for spring growth is nearly upon us. When temperatures rise, and nutrients become increasingly present in the environment, plant material, turf, and trees alike will be itching to get going for the year. This means that the time is now, and it is imperative that you get on top of your landscaping for the year. Certain services will assist in new growth, and then keep your landscape looking good all year long. If you do not set a solid foundation in the spring you could be looking at browned turf or dead plants, both symptoms of a property left to fend for itself. Do your property a favor, and start your spring landscaping now. These services will be most beneficial in your efforts, and we wish you a season of beautiful growth.
Fresh Start: Spring Clean Up
Before anything else, the best thing you can do for your property, and landscape, is clean it up. There are a myriad of reasons that debris may find its way into your property, from storms to children playing. Nevertheless, debris, trash, and weeds all prevent your lawn and landscape from reaching their full potential. Not only are they visual eyesores, but leaving them atop your green material fosters an environment where pests and disease may thrive. The best medicine is to take care of it all at once, so let Pezza set your property straight before you do anything else.
As the month of March approaches, your lawn will be leaving dormancy and entering a period of growth. This is arguably the most important growth, as it sets the tone for the rest of the year. Nutrients are often hard to come by in the colder stages of spring, so the best thing to do is artificially add them with a fertilization treatment. Your lawn will thank you as a combination of nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium are added to your soil. Literally making your lawn greener, while contributing to soil health and root development, fertilization is an essential lawn care service. It gives your lawn the capability to push through the spring, green as can be.
Install a Fresh Layer of Mulch
Whether it be a commercial property or a residential property, everyone loves mulch. It is one of the most valuable landscape supplies, contributing to your landscape in diverse ways. Putting down a one to two-inch layer atop your plant beds can prevent soil compaction, weed growth, and even retain moisture. As organic mulch decomposes, it even adds nutrients to your soil. The deeper and stronger your roots grow within your soil, the better off your turf will be long term. Remember, mulch should be replaced every one to two years, so even if you already have mulch installed it could be time for a refresh.
Bulbs: Spectacular Spring Color
If you are looking for an easy way to add color to your landscape after a winter of bleak dormancy, bulbs are great. They are easy to install, low maintenance, and offer plenty of creative options. Easily placed anywhere from containers to plant beds, they are very manageable for any type of property. Consult with our team at Pezza for all of your spring flowering options.
