New Years Check-In: Landscape Maintenance
As we approach the third month of the year, it’s a good idea to look back and see if you’ve been keeping up with the things you said would be handled during the colder months. When it comes to your landscape, there are a number of things you should be doing to keep it in tip-top shape for the spring, and preserving it long term. Below, we’ve listed a few things you might have let fly under the radar, but should consider taking a look at.
When it’s not covered in snow and ice, your lawn is likely one of the most important things in regard to your home, because it covers most of the property. Similar to you, it needs air to live, and winter can only get in the way of that. When the snow melts, make sure that you pick up sticks and leaves that can get in the way of their growth, so you can ensure green grass all season!
Shoveling snow is no fun, and damaging your paving stones are just as bad! If you’ve been using a metal edged shovel or a snowblower with a tough blade, damage might be on your paving stones. It’s a great idea to be mindful of this, as well as using safe ice-melters when necessary, in order to prevent them from eating the finish and stone
Similar to the patio and walkway area, your driveway also takes a beating during the colder months. If your plan was to seal up cracks and refinish the uneven areas, there’s no better time than now to do so. This can help you understand what needs to be done in order to maintain sensitive areas of your home like this one.
Of course, there sometimes just isn’t enough time in the day to do all of this winter maintenance yourself. If you’re finding that your efforts have fallen a bit short, let a professional team handle the tough stuff so you can relax when you need to!
