Finish Yard Improvements Now to Enjoy Outdoor Living This Summer

Summer’s nearly here, but before you can break out your flip-flops and chaise lounge, you should prepare your yard. That way, you can enjoy the outdoor living that you love when summer arrives. Here’s a step-by-step guide that will make sure you’re ready.

Spring Debris Clean Up

Some winter storms carried high winds, bringing down branches and whipping old leaves into yards. Additionally, the normal winter wear-and-tear on your yard can mean that your property isn’t yet ready for pool parties and cookouts. The first thing that you concentrate when preparing your yard for the summer is organic and inorganic debris clean up. Once that’s done, you can move onto some design aspects.

Annuals and Perennials to Create Curb Appeal

Now, it’s time to concentrate on the placement of and types of plantings that you’d like as a part of your landscaping and total outdoor living package. Consider the look that you want—like a stand-alone area that’s designed with bright and colorful annual flowering plants, or maybe perennials that surround your walkways and lead guests to your front door.

Mulching Beds and Edging

Mulch goes hand-in-hand with plantings, because mulch retains moisture, controls weeds, and regulates temperature during the hot summer months. In addition to keeping plantings and trees healthy, mulch looks natural and draws the eye to your plantings. Organic mulch, in particular, is becoming more popular, since the natural decomposition process also provides nutrients to the soil. Edging creates a clean look around the mulch and helps to keep it from washing away.

Seeding and Sod Installation

If you have bare patches or whole areas where your grass hasn’t grown due to disease, heavy foot traffic, or other problems, you should fix them now before the heat of summer makes it much more difficult to install new grass. Also, if you’ve re-graded or you have new construction, you’ll need your entire lawn re-seeded. This can be done through over seeding or hydro seeding. If you want your lawn to be installed quickly, then sod may be your best choice.
