Every season has a to-do list for your landscaping. As winter weather starts to melt away, this is the perfect time to get started on your spring designs. The team at Landwork Contractors can help you clean up and prepare your landscape for the new season. To get you started, here is a great checklist for February gardens and landscapes. 

  1. Take Stock- Before you start any spring design plans, it is important to take a good look at what you already have on hand.
  • Go through your tools then repair, replace, or remove old rakes, hedge trimmers, and other tools. 
  • Take Inventory of seeds, supplies, and soil. If you still have seeds from the previous season, you could use them this spring. When properly stored, soil can last as long as six months. 
  • Inspect hoses, drains, driveways, and decks for winter damage. Cold weather can cause a lot of damage to your property. 
  1. Spring Cleaning for Your Outside Spaces

Fallen branches, dead leaves, old seeds, and nuts can clutter your yard. Make sure you take the time to carefully clean up your landscaping. 

  • Remove debris and branches from lawns and gardens. 
  • Get rid of weeds and dead or diseased plants
  • Clear off walkways. 
  • Check gutters when the weather starts to improve.
  • Check lawns for dried or brown patches
  • When the weather begins to change, remove burlap covering from trees and bushes.

  1. Make a Plan!

Once you’ve tidied up and have a list of your supplies, start dreaming. Create a landscape design that will bring color and joy back to your home. 

  • Add trees of different types for all year color.
  • Include spring plantings like bulbed flowers and perennials.
  • Put a dash of annuals to increase curb appeal. 
  • Consider foundational plantings like boxwoods or spruce trees. 
  1. Show Your Landscaping Some Love

Plants need a little extra love after long, cold winter months. Pour out a little extra affection and attention for every inch of your landscaping. 

  1. Take Care of Your Feathered Friends

Birds can be the best friends a garden can have. They keep the insect population down, protecting your favorite blooms and bushes from pests. Make fun bird ornaments or put out a bird feeder to keep them nearby.
