Planning Your Spring Landscaping Project | Orange, Milford, West Haven, CT

lawn-care-643563_1280 (2)After a the long and unforgiving Connecticut winter finally starts to come to an end, and the warmer temperatures of the spring season slowly begin to arrive, there are some steps you should take to make sure that your lawn is in tip top shape when it comes time for you and your loved ones to start spending more time outdoors. Spring is considered by professionals to be the most essential time of year to put in the groundwork on your property in order to make sure it looks great for the rest of the year. We have below put together a list of crucial tasks to perform in early spring that will help your outdoor area stay happy and healthy so you can enjoy it.

The first task, which has to be done, is to remove all of the waste, which inevitably has accrued on your property during the winter. Connecticut is known for its harsh winters and there is likely to be some fallen branches and left over leaves among other things once the snow has melted away. Not only can this debris make mowing your lawn nearly impossible, it also blocks sunlight water and seeds from getting where they need to go.

While many landowners mistakenly believe that mulch is simply used for aesthetic purposes the reality is that it has several other highly advantageous components. Mulch helps your soil to maintain higher levels of moisture, which means less work for you because you have to water your lawn less often. It also protects your trees and other plants from hot summer temperatures. Mulch also prevents soil erosion during heavy rainstorms and keeps your plants from drowning.

It is strongly advised that you shaper or replace your lawn mower blade every couple of years. We also recommend mowing your grass high because it allows your grass to grow at a broader level and maintain a sturdier root structure. Keeping your grasses roots strong allows it to tolerate prolonged heat pests and other hazards of outdoor life.

Connecticut lawns have to tolerate a lot of damage during winter months and this often leads to thatch buildup. Doing basic maintenance tasks on your property provides many added benefits including but not limited to:

  • More access to water and air
  • Less thatch
  • Lawns can breath
  • Overall improved health

Much like in the house, spring-cleaning is essential on your land as well. Based in Hamden, CT and serving the New Haven and Fairfield County areas, Affordable Landscaping and Tree Service offers spring service maintenance to fully prepare your land for the upcoming warm weather.

Our specialist ensures that your property is neat tidy and healthy throughout the entire project so no worrying about your lawn being a mess while it’s worked on.

We have selected a few of our personal favorite winter plants that will add more green, interesting shapes, and will even blossom outside your window in the heart of winter. These plants will make terrific additions to your winter garden plans.

  1. Planting a holly shrub is a great and convenient method of sprucing up a dreary winter landscape. The majority of hollies are deciduous, which means they will not lose its leaves over the winter, giving you much needed color to your landscape during the dull Connecticut Winter.
  2. Plume grass is a beautiful feature to add to your landscape during the winter months.

Plum Grass can also be removed from your outdoor landscape and be harvested for indoor arrangements. Plume grass when it is bunch together in a decorative fashion, can may spread to 5 feet. You must take into account that it possesses weak stems, which are particularly vulnerable during the cold winter months when high winds may occur, so it may be in your best interest to plant it in a wind protected location.
  3. Babyberry shrubs are very popular for winter landscape design because they are very adaptable and require extremely low maintenance during the witner months. Barberry shrubs make great additions to the landscape and are known for their rich color and year-round garden interest. If you live in a heavily populated area, they are known for thriving in urban conditions and can even be grown inside a container of some sort.
  4. Birch trees make will make a wonderful addition to your landscape. Birch trees can grow to be over 90 feet tall or more and possess beautiful fall leaves that turns bright shades of orange and yellow. Another popular feature of birch trees is the bark that begins to peel off the tree as the cold weather sets in. Depending on the type of birch tree, the bark can peel off in a very thin fashion and in the majority of time it appears as a white color.
  5. The Winterberry holly is a deciduous type of holly, which will typically shed its leaves in during the early days of November, leaving behind an array of bright red berries. Most species of holly are either male or female, so you’ll have to pair them up to get berries. The best time to plant winterberry hollies is in the Spring time or early Fall seasons.
