Giving Your Lawn a Fresh Look: Season to Season Landscaping
Everyone desires to get a beautiful, green lawn. However, some people are too lazy to clean their lawns, even on a beautiful windy day. On the other hand, if you are looking to clean your dirty, overgrown lawn, then here are some effective tips for you to keep your season to season landscaping looking great.
Trim Overgrown Grass, Shrubs, Hedges and Trees
This basic step will be your first move to take out some time from your busy schedule and trim the untidy grass, trees, hedges and shrubs. Don’t just keep on trimming everything that comes in your path.
You might not want to annoy your neighbor by even trimming his well-kept bushes. In the spring season, you will have to spare a lot of time to cut down the overgrown plants.
Make sure that you trim the dead branches from your shrubs and trees. It is better to use a lawn mower for cutting the grass and giving it a nice shape. For cutting hedges and shrubs you can use a hedge trimmer or a pruning saw. Make sure you know how to use these tools.
Aeration is quite beneficial for the grass. A core aerator will help air and water to reach the roots faster, resulting in enhanced development and growth of the plants. However, you should be aware that aeration is done when the temperature is between 55 and 60 degrees.
Removing Debris After the Winter Season
The end of winter months means that you will have to clear any debris that is present in your lawn. It’s time to use your rake when it is warm enough for the snow to melt. Raking your lawn and removing debris will increase the airflow and help to melt the snow. After you are done raking, you will observe that new grass blades have started to appear.
Raking too hard might be harmful to the grass. Your lawn will be often wet in the spring season. Use your rake in a manner that does not harm the root structure of the lawn. To prevent damage, it is better to use a plastic rake.
The fall season can be annoying as you must clean your lawn from top to bottom. You can use a leaf blower to remove all the fallen leaves and twigs.
