Spring gardening cleaning

The Ultimate Spring Cleaning Checklist

Undoubtedly, a spring clean is the best method to prepare for the remainder of the year and prepare for the warmer weather. So that you and your home are fully prepared to enjoy the warm weather, we advise spring-cleaning the exterior and your garden.

Do you feel overwhelmed and unsure of where to begin with your yard’s spring cleaning? With our complete outdoor spring cleaning checklist, Pulse Lawn Mowing and Gardening has you covered!

Keep in mind that if you don’t have the time, you don’t have to complete all of these activities at once. Spread them out over several weeks or months instead. Just take little, manageable steps, one at a time. You should be able to tidy up your garden before the end of the season with a little patience and dedication.

Your garden could require a little TLC after a difficult winter to get it ready for the coming of spring. Here are some actions you can take to make sure it’s in excellent condition!

Weeding Garden Beds

In the spring, you may notice an increase in the number of weeds. Weeds can start to sprout up any place there is some open space, consequently, they might start to appear in bare garden beds or even among tiles and concrete. Weeds can be treated chemically by spraying them with weed killer or physically by taking the entire plant out (including the roots). There are numerous online methods for weed sprays that combine washing up liquid, salt, and vinegar if you’d prefer a less potent chemical approach.

Update Your Plant and Soil Choices

Your winter vegetables, herbs, and other plants will probably need to be removed because many plants are seasonal, and you should start getting ready to plant something fresh for the spring. Corn, basil, strawberries, and zucchini are some of our favourite springtime plants. Refreshing the soil in your potted plants may also be a good idea because they can lose nutrients and their capacity to hold water over time.

Maintain a Trimmed Lawn

While the winter months usually cause lawns to develop more slowly, the Spring months frequently see an increase in growth rate. Get outside and trim your lawn if you see that it’s growing a little long before it gets out of hand! You may either use our lawn mowing methods (just make sure your mower blades are sharpened first) or hire professionals like us to cut your grass for you.

Dethatch and Aerate Your Lawn

Spring is an excellent time to aerate your grass after a harsh winter. Aeration works by enhancing drainage and facilitating the delivery of oxygen and light to the grass roots, promoting the optimal growth of your lawn. By removing material that has accumulated between the grass and soil, lawn dethatching helps your lawn recover quickly. Before aerating, we advise dethatching your grass, and top-dressing immediately after.

Top Dress Your Lawn

Top dressing is a technique for maintaining a beautiful, healthy lawn by incorporating materials like sand or organic compost into the grass. This material serves as a solar barrier and keeps your lawn’s roots cool during the summer. The best time to top dress is in the early spring!

Consider hiring professionals to restore and maintain your garden to its best shape, especially if there are any of the jobs on this list that you don’t want to do. With our extensive selection of services, the knowledgeable staff at Pulse Lawn Mowing & Gardening is here and prepared to make sure your garden and outdoor spaces are prepared for the warmer months.
