Once you’ve admired the first blooms of spring, it’s time to get down to business taking care of your lawn. With spring cleaning in full swing it’s easy to overlook outdoor areas in lieu of all the inside chores to be done, but the entire yard can quickly become overgrown before you know it. Taking proper care of your yard keeps your plants happy and healthy. Plus, it means your space will be looking nice for you and your family to enjoy. Here are the five repairs you should tackle before summer begins.
Repair the fence
A dilapidated fence is not only an eyesore, it’s a liability. Especially if you have pets or children, repairing a broken fence should be at the top of your list of priorities. Installing a fence on your own is a massive undertaking, so it’s best to call in the experts. The team at Ozark Fence can help install or repair any kind of fence quickly and efficiently.
Clean and/or repair gutters
There’s a good reason for the saying “April showers bring May flowers.” Spring is one of the rainiest seasons, and without proper gutters to deflect that rain from your home, foundation issues could arise. If you already have gutters, be sure to regularly clean them for maximum effectiveness.
Repair or install a sprinkler system
Despite the heavy rain that comes with spring, sometimes your grass needs a little help — especially in areas where there’s little to no rain. That’s where a sprinkler system comes in handy. Having a sprinkler system is great for timed watering, but only if it works of course! Get your sprinkler checked out or repaired from the sprinkler experts at Colorado Sprinkler Service this spring.
Pull weeds and trim trees/bushes
Yard repairs extend to the plants themselves. Get a little dirty spending an afternoon pulling weeds and trimming the surrounding foliage. In doing so you’ll keep the plants you do want healthy and ready for new growth come spring.
Get your lawn mower ready
It’s time to get back into the routine of mowing the lawn. But before you do, check to make sure your lawn mower is still in tip top shape. If it has trouble starting or the blades are dull it will just make the chore of cutting the grass that much harder.
