Landscaping, Decks, and Fences
The landscaping in your yard will need attention each year to stay looking great. Early spring is one of the best times to get on those landscaping and gardening projects before everything starts growing. Trim your trees, bushes, and other plants in your landscaping. Be sure to remove weeds when they are small. Spring is also the time to plant bulbs that will bloom in summer. Early season flowers will be starting to show and summer flowers will start to get their leaves. If you have a garden or are planting in containers, it’s a good idea to get some compost and other fertilizer to enrich the soil.
If you have installed wood decks, fences, trellises, or other wood features outside, you’ll want to ensure they are treated and sealed. Depending on how much sun and water exposure the wood gets, it will need to be sealed at least every 4-6 years if you use a high quality sealant. This will keep the wood from rotting and warping.
