Springtime Outdoor Maintenance Checklist
Entrust Spring Tree and Shrub Maintenance to a Professional Tree Care Service
Many property owners are likely counting the days until they can begin the annual ritual of outdoor spring clean-up. With each passing week, the amount of daylight is steadily increasing, as are the daytime temperatures, and it will not be long until neighbourhoods will be witnessing such activities as raking, fertilizing, pruning, and planting.
Although the colder weather can seem to drag on forever, it is actually quite remarkable to see how quickly winter can become a distant memory as a property begins to awaken again in the spring. And with some help from the homeowner, trees, hedges, shrubs, and flower gardens located about the property can soon be flourishing anew.
To support the revitalization process of the property, so to speak, homeowners will need to invest an appropriate amount of time and effort in a variety of tree, shrub, and plant care tasks. The following is offered as a template or checklist to assist property owners in this regard:
- Inspect all trees and shrubs/hedges for winter damage
- Prune/trim any such damage to encourage fresh growth
- Shape hedges with hand pruners to permit entry of sun/air
- Flower beds – cut back perennials and remove dead annuals
- Clean out dead leaves, old mulch, and debris from flower beds
- Spread pellet fertilizer on the soil surface around existing plants
- Remove dead patches of lawn, add top dressing, and spread seed
- Fertilize/mulch existing trees; plant new trees to accent open areas
While comprehensive in its own right, the above list may only represent a portion of the full spectrum of spring maintenance needs for a particular property. Depending on the type and extent of their landscaping and other amenities or comforts, a homeowner may also need to dedicate time and effort to such activities as:
- Opening the pool
- Deck/fence repair
- Cleaning the garage
- Painting/staining jobs
- Washing windows/screens
The challenge, then, becomes finding sufficient time to address these types of priorities plus tend to the trees, shrubs, and flower beds too – and all within a rather concentrated period of time at the beginning of spring.
One way to alleviate some of the time pressures inherent with outdoor spring clean-up and maintenance would be to engage a professional tree care service like DreamWorks Tree Services.
