Once the snow begins to melt and your landscape comes back to life, it’s the perfect time to for spring cleanup and to make changes to your yard’s layout, design, or the plants featured in your yard. As one of the leading landscapers in Dracut, MA, the team from Dracut Landscaping has collected some easy tips that can help you revitalize your landscape and do something different with it this spring!
1. Lay New Sod
Spring is one of the best times to lay new sod or replace the grass, especially if it’s brown and looks like it’s seen better days. Installing new sod provides you with the opportunity of having a brand new lawn to enjoy all spring and summer long. Additionally, working with landscapers can help keep it in great shape. They’ll be able to provide all of the necessary maintenance such as weed control, mowing, fertilizing, and keeping it clean and free of debris.
2. Consider Building a Deck or Patio
Do you want to increase the usable square footage of your home while enjoying your yard to the fullest? Everyone wants a great outdoor living area during the summertime in New England. Adding a deck or stone patio can be a great way to make the most out of those spring and summer evenings with family or friends. Doing so will also increase your home’s resale value should you choose to sell it down the road. You can work with us to design a lovely vegetable garden area or a raised bed for you to plant vegetables, herbs, and/or flowers. You can add some nice hanging plants and other accessories like a gazebo to make your outdoor living space truly unique.
3. Perform Fence Repairs
Fences can certainly take their fair share of damage, especially during the winters in Massachusetts. But spring is a great time to give your fence a facelift and perform any maintenance and repairs. Not only will doing so beautify your property, but it also helps keep pests from moving in and making their homes in your yard and garden. For those without a fence around their property, spring is also a great time to install one, and they provide a host of benefits, enhancing privacy, as well as blocking noise and wind.
4. Planting New Shrubs and Trees
If the winter has left your landscape looking a little bleak, bring it back into full bloom by planting new trees, flowers, or shrubs in spring. Shrubs can add privacy to your outdoor space. Trees can provide much-needed shade during warmer weather, and flowers will add color to enhance your overall exterior design.
5. Consider Installing Hardscaping Features
Hardscaping features like a stone wall or waterfall can be a great addition to any landscape, and the spring weather is perfect for such work. Hardscape or water features will add a new dimension to your yard and increase its peace and tranquility.
