The first day of spring, March 20, is just around the corner! That’s right, spring is knocking at our door, and we couldn’t be more excited for another great season of landscaping in the great state of Ohio. If you’re looking to spruce up your landscaping this year, now is the time to start planning and deciding how you’re going to tackle your spring garden. Check out these three tips from your friends at Precision Corporation to get started.
1. Make a Plan
The key to a successful landscape design is a well-thought-out plan. Before you dust off your tools or purchase a single seed, you need to form a vision of what you want it to look like and how you’ll get all the work done. If you have a large area to tackle, you may even want to break the work up into stages, so you don’t get too overwhelmed. Even better, consider hiring a professional team to help you with the design and work for guaranteed success!
2. Make Wise Purchases
Once you have your plan mapped out, you’ll need to start purchasing the seeds and plants you want to put in the ground. Several flowers only bloom during the spring and are great to provide a boost of color before the summer flowers bloom. Shopping at a local nursery or home improvement store is a great way to find flowers that are native to your area and most likely to do well in your landscape at home. However, you should also take your yard’s climate into account. Which plants will thrive best depends on several factors, including slope, soil quality, and sun exposure. For the best results, follow the instructions on flower labels regarding sun exposure and watering.
3. Start Prepping
Finally, the last step is to get your hands dirty! Once you have your plan and your flowers ready to go, you’ll need to prep your garden to make sure it is ready to help your flowers flourish. Clear out any debris from last year, including dead leaves or other dead plants. You should also prepare the soil by removing weeds and roots, stirring up the soil, and spreading a new layer of compost.
