Spring Gardening Checklist to Beautify Your Home

Spring is almost here and it’s time for all the beautiful things that come along with it—renewal, new beginnings and gorgeous gardens! Whether you’re selling a home and want to make a great first impression, or just bought a home and want to try out your green thumb, here’s a quick checklist of easy tasks to improve your home’s curb appeal.

1. Renew the Lawn 

 

Now is the perfect time to give your grass a nice refresh. Clear away any weeds and winter debris and look closely for areas that need to be reseeded. This means any barren spots or patchy areas that have worn thin. Here’s a great tutorial on how to reseed your lawn.

2. Prune Your Shrubs 

 

Timing is everything when it comes to pruning. Spring-flowering shrubs like azaleas, lilacs and forsythia should be pruned immediately after they bloom. This gives your shrubs time to produce new branches and blooms during the rest of the growing season.

3. Plant New Flowers

 

The fun part! It’s officially growing season and now’s the time to make new beds for a colorful display of flora that will take the exterior of your home to a whole new level. According to the gardening experts at Home Depot, the best day to begin planting is on an “overcast day when rain is in the forecast.” Whether you’re planting from bare-root or using container-grown plants, follow these steps to achieve the best results.

4. Get Your Mulch On


After you’ve planted your flowers, sprinkle a generous layer of mulch over your garden beds. This is key for overall soil health and gives your new plants a great foundation on which to thrive. Wood chips, straw, bark and grass clippings are all good options to keep away weeds and retain moisture.
