3 Steps to Prepare for Spring
There are three basic steps to start preparing your lawn and landscaping for the spring. The first step in preparation is winter pruning since most plants are dormant in the winter, this is a great time to prune which will promote fast regrowth in the spring. One of the most important aspects of pruning in the winter is to remove any dead or diseased branches. Once all your plants and shrubs have been pruned, it's necessary to edge and redefine your landscaping beds. Now that the beds have been reshaped, laying new mulch is the final step in preparing your landscaping for spring. Our final suggestion is to add a pre-emergent herbicide to your new mulch to optimize weed suppression.
