The outside of your house can say a lot about you as a homeowner. A meticulously manicured and landscaped yard can show that you’re a neat person who really cares about keeping up appearances. Conversely, a gross lawn might suggest that you’re a slob who’s not concerned with how your house looks, and that you don’t care what your neighbors think. You may even be the person in your neighborhood that nobody wants to live next to because your yard looks so bad!
Folks in the first group know that yard maintenance in Las Vegas is a year-round process. Every season requires different chores in order to ensure a perfect yard. Now that winter has almost passed, it’s time to look ahead to what you should be doing for your yard this spring:
- Prep your lawn mower: Assuming you have grass, the first thing on your to-do list for the spring is to get your lawn mower ready for the summer mowing season. If you’re handy with small engines, you may be able to prepare your mower yourself. But if you aren’t, your best bet is to take it into a professional. A small engine service shop will tune your mower up and sharpen the blade to get it ready to trim your lawn to perfection. You’ll also need to get new gas for your mower and set your mower blade level to three inches for the first cut of the year.
- Rake your lawn: You’d be surprised how much debris can blow into your yard over the course of the winter. Before you run your lawn mower for the first time, you’ll want to make sure all of the sticks, leaves and other windblown objects are up and off the grass. If this doesn’t sound like something you want to do, give us a call! We have all of the right equipment to clean your yard quickly and efficiently.
- Lay down sod and grass seed: Areas of your lawn can die during the winter, especially if there’s a sudden cold snap. One of the biggest steps in spring yard maintenance in Las Vegas is fixing dead patches of grass before it gets too hot outside. Our professionals are more than happy to thoroughly fix any dead areas of grass to ensure your lawn looks as good as new in 2017.
- Plant trees and flowers: Spring is the best time to get any new plants into the ground! This is especially true for small saplings and tiny shrubs. The longer your plants are in the ground, the stronger they’ll be when the scorching sun starts beating down on them in July and August. While sunshine is great for plants, too much sun and heat can cause them to shrivel and die. Don’t go digging in your yard with a shovel. We have all of the right tools to dig deep holes to help ensure your plants thrive throughout the year.
