Do you think it takes you a long time to get out of the house in the morning? A good approach is to prep as much the night before. Get you outfit picked out and set up your coffee station. The less you have to do in the morning, the more you can relax and prepare for your day. The same prepping principle should apply to getting your garden ready for spring. Here’s what you should do to make that happen:
It’s time to go through the entire garden with a sharp pair of pruning scissors. You want to prune back spring-blooming shrubs and trees. You should also thin out any summer blooming plants you might have. Pay special attention to any dried branches. Those have to go to make room for new growth.
A garden and lawn are left alone in the winter. Before spring arrives, it’s time to bring those areas back to life and that starts with weeding. This is vital for any garden or vegetable bed. The more weeds you can pull out at the root now, the less chance you have of them coming back later in the growing season.
Compost is a process that turns your organic waste into nutrient rich fertilizer but it doesn’t happen overnight. What can go into compost? Good brown sources include garden trimmings, dry leaves, pine needles, straw, wood chips, shredded paper products and sawdust. Green sources can be found in grass clippings, green leaves and plant material, animal hair and manures, as well as kitchen wastes. Once that mix is all together, it will break down with the help of some carefully placed worms. Their digestion of the materials will become that rich source of nutrients. If you start composting this season, you’ll be in great shape for the fall and beyond.
Along with the weeds and pruning scraps, you’ll also want to get rid of the bigger eyesore items that might be scattered throughout your yard. This can be anything from a children’s playground set to a withered gazebo. Those big structures and the rest of your yard debris can be quickly cleared by Junk King Denver.
