Why Hardscaping Compliments Summertime Fun

They don’t call it spring cleaning for nothing. This is the perfect time of year for Georgians to start prepping their spring landscaping. Before the summer heat becomes unbearable, check out this to-do list for hardscaping and landscaping.

Out with the Mold

Break out the rakes! It’s time to clear out the dead foliage that has been sitting in your flower beds all winter. Leaves, ornamental grasses, and last year's annuals crushed under winter snows and rains make your landscaping prime real estate for mold and rot. Failure to removed dead foliage could cause mold to spread to other plant life in your beds and ruin wooden structures like edging.

In with the Bloom

Pruning is an important part of your spring checklist, because it encourages new growth of your favorite trees and shrubs. Once the threat of hard frost has passed, prune back dead, broken, or twisted branches with shears. Clean cuts are easier to heal and will soon produce new branches. Roses, Hydrangea, and Annabelle respond well to pruning during this time of year as they are coming out of winter dormancy. Check with your plants’ specifications to determine just how much to cut back.

Feed Me

Get ahead of the game by putting down grass seeds and fertilizer. A fertilizer that doubles as a weed killer will ensure your seedlings won't be choked out by unwanted growth. It also means less weed pulling for you. Your back will thank you. Don't forget to treat fledgling trees and shrubs with plant food to aid their winter recovery.

Hardscaping Made Easy

All this preparation wipes the slate clean and makes it easier to plan this spring hardscaping projects. Before hurricane season hits, now is the time to think about retaining walls.

Be the envy of the neighborhood with a new outdoor kitchen, perfect for entertaining and backyard parties.
