Spring Cleaning Landscaping Tips
Mulch is often a nice additive to beautifying the barren space of planter beds and natural dirt areas. Aside from an aesthetic base, which is pleasing to the eye, mulch holds in moisture for less watering requirements, reduces weed growth, and provides nutrients to the soil. Mulch varieties are various, some of which you can often find left by your tree contractor. By adding mulch you will add color and texture to create a wonderful enhancement and benefit to the property.
Refresh and Color it!
Freshen the flower display at entries, clubhouses and pools with new flowers. Often landscape contractors refer to color as an annual flower, which is seasonal, giving an average life of 3-6 months. Although a bit more expensive than perennial plants, annual plant color makes a huge impact on emphasized areas. For associations with minimal budgets, consider perennial plants giving seasonal color year after year without costly change-outs. If a project has an annual color bed, now is a great time to change the annuals to spring and summer flower varieties.
Fill in voids in the landscape with a planned design matching your existing palette.
Plan a new design to freshen the look of an old palette. Don’t be victim to a lack of planning and design to accommodate the theme of architecture, color and micro climate. Consult an architect or a designer to work with your landscape contractor to find ideas that will work long term for your community and your budget.
Make sure that your landscape contractor has the proper irrigation timer settings for a spring and summer watering cycle. Be conscious that your automated irrigation is dialed in for the upcoming season. Ensure your irrigation technicians are preparing for the summer “hot spot season”, so that your community will have a head start on the summer heat.
