5 Ways to Get Your Backyard Spring-Ready!

Mar 13, 2017

 

 

Spring is coming! That means spending more time outdoors, so it’s time to get the backyard ready. Here are five ways to get your backyard space ready for relaxing and entertaining:

  1. Trim the greenery. Trim the bushes, shrubs, and trees. Think of it like a haircut! Pruning can give new life to plants, especially when removing dying or dead parts. Look into the types of plants you have in your yard to see if any require special pruning.
  2. Wash the patios, walkways, and fences. Pressure washing can make a huge difference. Get rid of moss, dirt, and debris for a fresh look without breaking the bank. Some things you may need to scrub with a brush, but for driveways, wood, and cemented areas, a pressure washer will work quickly and effectively. 
  3. Add some style and function. Decorate and furnish your backyard space with items you’ll use and enjoy. Set aside spaces for sitting, eating, and lounging that will encourage you to spend more time outside. Don’t forget to add lighting! Strings of lights and tiki torches are a great way to add a little ambiance to your backyard paradise.
  4. Spruce things up with some new plants. Flowers, trees, and bushes can add lasting color and life to your yard. Look for hardy plants that don’t require much water to create a low-maintenance yard. Planters allow flowers and bushes to grow in places where there is little dirt, and can add even more style to your space. 
  5. Care for your lawn. If you have grassy areas and you take pride in your lawn, now is a good time to take care of brown spots. Reseeding is one option for remedying a dead lawn. If your lawn continues to die despite proper care, consider having the soil tested. That may tell you if the soil is missing a certain nutrient, or has too much of another.
