Are you looking to add something new to your homes curb appeal but don't know where to start? Or maybe you want to revamp your current yard but have questions and concerns. Here to help is Red Mountain Landscaping, your local landscape and home experts.
The first step you'll want to take is: PLANNING! We recommend starting any landscaping project in the spring around the months of April and May allowing your plants to grow and thrive through the long summer months. This also eliminates the possibility of the ground freezing which might be the case if you start during the winter.
If you are unable to do this in the spring time for any reason your next best option is fall but you may need to add some addition TLC to you landscape (i.e more frequent watering/ pruning)
Spring is the perfect time to start your next landscaping project for a number of reasons; we'd like to share some of our knowledge with our customers because we're not doing our job unless we're giving you all the information you need to to make the best landscape for your home.
Here are the main reason we believe you should start your landscaping to do list this spring:
1. Spring is often associated with rebirth, which you probably know is accurate if you've had plants dwindle from the harsh winter winds. Keep the seasons in mind when thinking about not only when you want to plant but what you want to plant too.
2. By beginning planting in the spring your new greenery is introduced to the perfect weather conditions. Because its not too hot yet it can slowly become accustom to the high temperatures summer bring us. Another advantage this has is your plants rooting to your soil with ease.
3. As we've stated, planning is the most important step in all of this. Summer does bring its joys, BBQ's, relaxing by the pool and longer days. You'll want to spend your summer enjoying your new yard but you won't be able to do this if it's still in the early stages of growing. Not to mention trimming leaves and pulling weeds on 100 degree days. YIKES.
4. Everyone's heard it "the early bird gets the worm" and this is especially true here. Starting you project in the spring will allow you access to the newest design ideas and trends! Many landscaping companies see heavy supply and demand in the summer so by starting before the herd, your yard will be a priority over anyone who starts later.
These are some of the best reasons we can think of to keep you informed on how to properly care for your yard! If you have any landscaping questions, want to try something new or have any concerns you can always call your local professionals to assure you on any project.
