Spring is here and it’s time to get the outside of your home looking as great as the inside. This means a little Spring yard maintenance. We have a small checklist to get you on the right track.
Clean Your Gutters
This needs to be done before you do any other type of yard work, unless you have trees above your branches that could get debris in them.

Prune Dead Or Damaged Branches from Trees and Bushes
Taking care of dead or damaged trees/bush branches can not only promoting a fuller plant. It can protect your home from a dead branch from falling on your home. Use the proper trimming tool to trim up those bushes. If the trees around your home are too large, please hire a professional.
Clean Debris From Flower Beds And Around Plants
In the fall we rake our yard to clean up the leaves but it’s nearly impossible to rid your yard completely. Clean out your flowers beds and remove mulch if you have old mulch from last year.
Compost ( If you want)
Why not start a small composting bin to let nature do it thing. Rid your yard of all the debris. It’s also a great place to put the gutter debris after you clean your gutters!
Prep Your Lawn For Seeding
Spring is a great time to reseed your lawn in preparation of summer. Use a rake to loosen the problem areas and sprinkle with grass seeding of choice.
Neaten Up Hardscape
Your hardscape can take a real beating in the winter. With snow falling and melting moving the dirt around your hardscape stones. Brush off your stones and fill around as needed to keep that great hardscape look.
