Things to begin thinking about…
It’s the time of year when we begin to get motivated about the upcoming spring season. Doing a few early preparations will bring great benefits all year long. So while we wait for mother nature to give us the go ahead, there are a few things that we can be thinking about. One small secret to executing our spring garden is by starting off with a plan. Maybe you would like to plant a vegetable garden this year, maybe a raised bed? Think about trouble spots from last year and how you can rectify them early this year to make your yard a welcoming environment and a place that you will really enjoy coming home to after a long days work. If container gardening on your deck is a better prospect for you, think about investing in a couple of decorative pots that really make a statement. In container gardens, plants are easily transitioned from season to season.
Now is the perfect time to get your lawn mower in for service, this way you are ready when the time comes and you will also beat the eager gardening crowd. Turn on your outdoor spigots and attach hoses.
Over the winter leaves and debris gather and live in drainage areas. Keep in mind that a great place to discard your cleared material would be in the compost. Rake out any existing leaves and debris, pick up small branches and add them in the compost pile as well.
