As January wraps up, you may be thinking about warmer temperatures, sunny days and beautiful afternoons spent in your yard with your family. While the weather may still be on the cool side, it is a great time to start preparing your lawn and landscaping for spring and summer. There are steps you can take now that will prepare your lawn for the next season. Your current efforts may not seem helpful in the moment, but you are laying the foundation for a beautiful yard in the next few months.
At Pinestraw Place, we can evaluate your yard and help you identify things that may need some work. This includes improving the health of your grass, replacing landscaping or adding additional things that will improve the visual appeal of your yard. Some of the other things you can do that will help prep you and your South Carolina yard for spring include:
- Do routine maintenance on your lawnmower, including replacing parts and sharpening blades.
- Treat your yard for weeds or unhealthy growth that may impede healthy growth in the spring.
- Determine which type of fertilizer will be best, which we can help you do, as well as help you know when to lay it.
- Fill in bare spots in your yard by laying sod, planting shrubs or laying down grass seed.
It may be hard to believe, but this is the best time to prep your lawn and plants for warmer temperatures, more rain and spring growth. If you have concerns about your yard’s health, your landscaping needs or what should be done about the current state of your grass, we can help. Reach out to us today to make an appointment for a member of our team to come to your home, speak to you about your concerns and create a game plan that will help you achieve your yard goals.
