4 Ways To Take Care Of Your Yard In The New Year

As you work on New Year's resolutions for yourself, be sure to make some for your home as well. The outside of your home impacts both the curb appeal of the home and the relaxation and joy you get out of your home. This year, make some New Year's resolutions to take better care of the landscaping of your property. Here are a few ways you can achieve that goal.

Get Your Trees Professionally Trimmed

The best time of year to have your trees professionally pruned and trimmed is right at the end of the winter or very early in the spring. At this point in time, your trees are dormant, making it an ideal time to trim them. There are also not a lot of funguses or diseases in the area that can harm your tree, reducing the likelihood that trimming your tree will result in your trees getting a disease.

By trimming your trees at the end of winter, you will shape the growth of your trees when spring hits. Your trees will be set in shape for a great growing season.

Removed Diseased Trees from Your Property

If you have any dead or dying trees on your property, quit waiting to have them removed. Get them removed as soon as possible. This is a task that you can even have taken care of this winter. Getting rid of dead and dying trees will increase your safety and will make your yard look great.

Treat Your Yard

At the start of spring, treat your yard right. Put down fertilizer to help your yard grow. If your yard is looking a little thin, put down some grass seed. If weeds have been a problem in the past, you can even put down weed control treatments that will prevent weeds from growing in the first place.

After the initial treatment, treat your yard to some fertilizer every four to six weeks from early spring through early fall. Regular fertilizer treatments will help keep your yard looking great all year.

Add New Plants

Finally, it can be easy to just get used to how your yard looks and to stick with it for years. However, it is a good idea to mix up the appearance of your yard. Bring in a landscaping company and have them help you choose some new bushes and flowers that will help enhance the visual appeal of your yard. Adding new plants and flowers to your yard can really bring the landscaping and the space together.

This year, include a resolution to take care of your landscaping in the new year. Start by getting rid of any dead or dying trees and then by having your existing trees pruned this winter. Then, treat your yard right with new seeds and fertilizer this spring, and add in some new bushes and flowers to your landscaping.
