Aside from the warmer weather, one thing that people look forward to in spring is its bright greens and colorful blooms. To make sure that the plants in your garden flourish and look attractive, you must take proper care of your flowerbeds. A little effort is all you need to enjoy a lively and pleasant yard.
Here are tips on how to clean up your garden beds in spring from a trusted outdoor living company.
Weed Your Garden Beds
Before starting to remove weeds in your yard, be sure to wear gardening gloves. These gloves will make your task easier. Instead of simply pulling from the leaves, grip from the tip of the root. Doing so will keep the weed to break off from the roof. You should pull up and twist when pulling out the weeds from the ground.
Consider Adding More Plants
If you have more space on your garden beds, consider adding more plants. New additions to your landscape will add more life and color to your outdoor living space. When choosing plants, always be mindful of the sun, soil, and water requirements of your flowerbed. At Backyard Reflections, our experienced team can help you choose the best plants for your yard. You can count on us for your spring and fall plant bed cleanup. We also specialize in tree pruning, irrigation maintenance and pond start-up.
Get More Wood Chips
Thick layers of mulch can help keep weeds from growing. Adding more mulch to your garden beds will keep them fresh during the warmer months. Experts suggest having two to four inches of mulch down. The amount of mulch you will need depends on the size of your garden bed and the thickness you prefer.
