Although it is true the year began a couple of months ago, the Chicago winter has largely prevented any real landscaping work from being completed. With temperatures dipping well below freezing, the idea of planting new material, and revamping mowing efforts was a pipe dream. However, as the month of March is here spring will be soon enough. This means that the weather gets warmer, and conditions for landscaping are perfect. The temperature transition is the real beginning of the year for landscapers, as this is when work can first be done. In an effort to beat out the commercial competition, property managers will be itching to get their property prepared to take on healthy growth and beautiful additions. Not happening while you sit idle, your landscape must be actively prepared if you want to maximize the value of your landscape in 2022. Here are 5 steps to prepare your property for the new year.

5 Steps to Prepare your Property for a New YearInitial Spring Clean-Up

It is not at all unusual for the winter to bring along bad weather, debris, and the falling of leaves atop your turf. Mulch can be messy, decorative rock washed away, and even your turf could look unkempt. Before you attempt to remedy the many places in your landscape that need it, giving your property a fresh start is a right move. Debris and leaves left alone on your property can be hazardous to both humans, and your landscape. Have our professional crew sweep through your property, and get a breath of fresh air in preparation for the oncoming season.

Fertilization: Lawn Maintenance Must

Keeping your lawn green is at the top of the priority list, especially after it goes dormant during the cold. Simply put, the roots of your turf need nutrients to survive and thrive, and they can often be tough to come by in the early stages of spring. An initial fertilization treatment can give your lawn the boost it needs to start the year off on the right foot.

Get Rid of Weeds

Whether it be pre-emergent applications to prevent future weed growth in your immaculate landscape, or post-emergent control options to eradicate a current infestation, weeds must go. During the winter they can creep in on your unsuspecting lawn, taking over your turf before you know it. Both eyesores, and unhealthy, nobody likes weeds.

Install a Fresh Layer of Mulch5 Steps to Prepare your Property for a New Year

Many people do not know this, but mulch is actually supposed to be replaced every one to two years. Especially on vast commercial and municipal properties where large amounts are required, timing can be lost in translation. If you do not routinely replace organic mulch, you miss out on the benefits of weed prevention, moisture retention, and nutrient addition. The beginning of spring is the best time, giving your plants support early on.
