Get Your Whittier Yard Ready For Spring!

by The Domis Team

Make your Whittier Area yard the envy of the neighborhood this spring! Prepare your yard for spring today so you can spend less time tending to it in the coming months and more time enjoying its beauty! Get started on these lawn care tasks and marvel at your yard's beauty!

 

1. Start Seeding

We have already started to experience very warm days. Before the temperatures rise anymore, add grass seed or sod to bare and thin spots around your yard. This will allow it to root before weeds can grow.

 

2. Remove Debris

Make sure to remove any branches, leaves, and other debris from your yard. Not only will it make your yard simply look more attractive but it will ensure proper growth for grass and plants.

 

3. Prune & Fertilize

Remove old growth from plants and prune trees and shrubs so new spring blossoms have room to bloom. Add some slow release fertilizer with pre-emergent herbicide to your garden plants, shrubs, and trees. This will help your beautiful spring plants grow while keeping weeds at bay.

 

4. Start Planting

Get that green thumb in gear and start planting your perennials, trees, and other plants. With all the rain we have been getting, these plants will appreciate the wet soil and will take root better now than when we start to experience even warmer temperatures.

 

5. Maintenance Your Mower

Keep your lawn mower in tip top shape all spring and summer by giving it some TLC right now. Sharpen the blades, give it an oil change, and replace the spark plugs and air filter.
