It may still be cold outside here in Southern New Hampshire, but believe it or not, spring is right around the corner. And before you know it, it will be time to play in the backyard and spend time outside again. But spring and summers are short here on the East Coast, so you want to take the time to enjoy them as much as possible. Get a head start preparing your lawn for spring with the tips from the professionals at Alliance Landscaping.
If you are tired of battling weeds year after year with no sign of letting up, then here’s a valuable tip for you; start early. Right now, you have a unique opportunity to eliminate all the weeds in your Auburn area yard and prevent them from germinating and taking over your yard. How do you do that? With pre-emergent weed control. Pre-emergents are specially designed liquid or granular applications that prevent seeds from sprouting. The only way this works is if you apply it before your grass starts to green up. Do it right, and you will notice a significant reduction in the number of weeds you see in the summer.
Trees and shrubs need your attention too. They may seem like indestructible objects, but trees are quite vulnerable outside of a forest setting. In the forest, the sheer number and proximity of trees naturally protect them from pests and diseases. But alone in our yards, trees stick out like a sore thumb to insects and the various diseases they carry with them. You can protect your trees with dormant oil in the spring to eliminate any overwintering pests and ensure your trees stay healthy.
Your lawnmower is the workhorse of your yard. Whether you use it to mow your lawn, mulch leaves, or transport lumber, your lawnmower is an essential tool in your lawn care regime. And like all tools, they need to be maintained from time to time.
Gutters are amazing yet simple architecture achievements, yet most people never give them a second thought. If you live in a place where there are no large trees, you may never have to check on your gutters. But many people live in areas where their gutters can get clogged with leaves and other debris. When our gutters become clogged, they cease to function properly. Water can back up and overflow, eroding the ground around your foundation. Over time, water can seep into cracks, make them worse, and even cause basement flooding. Clogged gutters can also attract pests like mosquitoes, who will use them to lay their eggs.
No one wants to think about these pesky creatures, but unfortunately, they aren’t going anywhere. As the weather warms up, ticks will emerge from their overwintering spots and hatch their eggs. They carry harmful diseases for both you and your pets, including Lyme disease. Don’t allow them to chase you indoors this year. Be proactive and include tick control in this year’s spring planning.
