Brighten Your Yard This Summer
Long evenings plus bright days equals the perfect opportunity to get your yard back into shape. If Mother Nature wasn’t so kind to it over the winter and spring, take a weekend and add curb appeal.
If the grass is dead and you have no plans to replant it, why not change the design entirely? Rent a backhoe from your local hardware store and rethink your yard. You can add hills or ponds and whatever your imagination comes up with! If you don’t have a truck or a trailer for your rental, look into heavy equipment hauling Los Angeles.
Mow and Prune
Of course, if you have a decent slate to start with, work with what you have. Mow your lawn and sprinkle grass seed and fertilizer over any bare spots. Don’t forget to water nightly (once the heat has died down) to make sure that the seeds take root. Prune your shaggy bushes and shape them back into things of beauty. Don’t forget to pick up all the brush and sticks that you find.
How Does Your Garden Grow
Pull weeds in your flower beds and dig out any plants that have died. Plant bright, blooming flowers in their place and spread fresh beauty bark or dirt over the beds. Don’t forget about your potted plants; replace any dead flowers and give everything a nice long drink.
Moss and dirt tend to build-up on siding, patios and decking during the cold months, so get rid of it by pressure washing away all the gunk. Spray Simple Green all over to naturally kill anything growing beforehand. Make sure you pick a hot day to do this — you are going to get drenched!
Yardwork is a hard, long job, but once it’s finished you have something so beautiful to look at. Take pride in your home and make it shine again.
