We’ve compiled the spring landscape maintenance checklist for your landscape! It’s time to start thinking about waking up your landscape from their long winter slumber.

Spring Landscape Maintenance Checklist

  1. Start up your irrigation system. Change the batteries and check the time and date on your controller. Schedule your controller for spring irrigation.
  2. Check your irrigation system for any clogged valves or frozen pipes and make sure the sprinklers are providing even coverage to avoid dry spots.
  3. Prune any dead or damaged tree or shrub branches.
  4. Cut back flowering perennials and ornamental grasses.
  5. Remove fallen leaves and debris from planter beds.
  6. Sweep and clean hardscape surfaces.
  7. Deep clean artificial turf and look for repairs that may need to be made.
  8. Aerate your lawn. Aerating will open up the lawn to allow water and nutrients to penetrate the soil more effectively.
  9. Apply a slow-release fertilizer to your lawn.
  10. Mulch your garden beds around perennials, trees, and shrubs. Be sure to keep mulch away from the crown of the plant.
  11. Plan summer landscape projects.

When it comes to planning your summer landscape projects, we suggest listing your top 5-10 projects. Whether they be installing a new paver walkway or refreshing DG mulch, you want to start making a plan for those projects. If you need a professional, reach out to them early in the year, so you can get on their schedule.

After you’ve checked off your spring cleaning checklist, you are ready to enjoy a fresh landscape! Starting off your landscaping on the right foot in the spring will ensure a beautiful outdoor space you can enjoy all year long.
