Spring is just around the corner! It’s time to get the seeds and bulbs ready for planting! Have a landscaping project you’re dying to start? Now’s the time to begin. As the snow begins to melt, the rain goes away, and the sun emerges from behind the clouds, you know that spring is arriving. Garden Winds has a few gardening and landscaping tools to help you get started on your outdoor project.
Repair any pickets you may have on the home. If you have natural stone, block or stucco wall type fencing, fix splits, replace missing sections and give it a new coat of paint. With real wood fencing material, change out any deformed or missing segments and put some fasteners where needed. Definitely re-stain or repaint your hardwood fence with new paint. Regardless of type of fencing you have, confirm your fence is all standing up level and not sagging or loose. Adjust gate hinges and latches.
So, your kids finally head off to college and you decide that it is time to break down the wall that divides your room from theirs. It might be nice to have a nice big over-sized master bedroom, but is it something that is going to make your home more difficult to sell if the time comes? If you have less than four bedrooms in your house, pause and truly think about it before you start ripping things apart. Homes with three or more bedrooms tend to sell more quickly and hold a higher value than the ones that have fewer.
Cover any landscape or items that you want to protect from paint. Accidents happen and paint can be spilled or dripped on a prized plant or hardscape. Putting out drop clothes will protect your items and make the process a little easier for your exterior painting crew.
You’ve conceived the perfect backyard escape for yourself with undeniably gorgeous landscaper, lush green grass and a relaxing outdoor living space. A swimming pool is the only thing missing. If you wish to add some Zen-like peace and calmness to your life with a pool, have you considered an Infinity Edge pool? They are beautiful to behold as well as useful, and you will never grow tired of looking out your window and viewing water falling over into the horizon. Infinity Edge pools are cutting edge in swimming pools, and offer more than a place to cool off. They can be a serene experience and unlike any swimming experience you may have had.
A soil-testing laboratory can also determine the soil’s salinity. This is evaluated by measuring the electrical conductivity of the soil. A good topsoil should have less than 0.5 mmhos/cm.
Once you see how wonderful backyard landscaping can be you will want to have barbecues or cookouts all the time. Maybe even invite the extended family over for a little reunion. The entertainment possibilities are endless when you have a backyard landscaping job that you can be proud of. If you don’t think you are up to the challenge yourself, you can always hire a professional to do it for you.
