As the winter weather starts to taper off, it’s time to start planning your yard for spring. If you’re unsure of how to get started, here are some tips to consider for gearing up your landscaping for the warmer weather, and don’t forget that the Hansen Lawn & Gardens Ltd. team can always lend a helping hand to bring your dream yard to life!
Think About What You Want To Be Done
Before you begin, it’s important to think about what elements you’d like to include in your landscaping design. Are you looking to remove old flowerbeds or re-sod your lawn? Or, did you plan on pulling weeds, cleaning up the layout a bit, and maximizing your space? Regardless, it’s a good idea to plan out what you want to be done – everything from annual chores to those stubborn projects that you’ve yet to find time for. Reaching out to a professional landscaping team such as ours will ensure you have the right plant life and materials for your climate, sun conditions, and atmosphere! We’ll take care of everything including the appropriate digging tools, specific soil types, fertilizers, and herbicides.
Are You Going for a New Look or Considering a Landscaping Project?
Are you considering having a vegetable garden set up, or a well-manicured flowerbed? Or, perhaps your style teeters more towards a rustic layout, complete with plenty of untamed wildflowers amidst newly installed flagstone pathways. If you’re planning to have a new addition made to your yard, such as a pergola or walkway, it’s a good idea to turn to a professional landscaper. This way, you won’t have to worry about deciding what plants to include or what materials and tools you will need to have on hand if you do not already have them. For example, we at Hansen Lawn & Gardens Ltd. supply all the tools, materials, plants and manpower to get the work done according to your vision. We’ll also find out what type of pests can impact your landscaping and organize fencing or proactive materials that can help protect your garden or veggies from damage.
Get Ready for Planting
Plants, vegetables and flowers will all have their own unique requirements for planting, especially when it comes to timing. You should consult with a professional landscaper or study a planting chart to ensure you are planting each breed at the appropriate time.
Estimate Space for Growth
Having adequate space for various plants is important, as it allows for them to reach their maximum potential. We recommend checking the growth and height requirements and estimating how big the plants will grow to be before considering placing them in your garden. Our landscaping team will go over the details with you if you choose to work with us, ensuring that every angle and potential outcome is covered.
Map It Out
Another handy tip for planning your yard for spring is using the time now to map out how everything will look before the digging season arrives. You can draw up a rough layout of your yard and map out where each of your desired plants will be placed or turn to a professional landscaper to carry out the task for you without hassle. Once the warmer weather arrives, they can use stakes or any other materials to do this, so everyone has a better idea of how it will look when planted.
Create a Maintenance Plan
Landscaping requires lots of maintenance and after-planting care. Consider hiring a professional landscaping company who can take care of all the watering, pruning and general maintenance of your garden so you can sit back, relax and enjoy the beauty it provides.
