Spring Landscaping: The Ultimate Resource
April 16, 2020
It can be easy to overlook, but your lawn is an extension of your home. Just as your major home systems require seasonal maintenance and care, so does your lawn. Spring is a great time to think about your landscape maintenance habits and make sure you're protecting the safety, comfort, and value of your home.
A well-kept yard is the first line of defense against pests. We all know Florida is host to all sorts of wildlife; an uncontrolled yard is a paradise for unwanted wildlife. Weed, debris, and dense plants are a breeding ground for ticks and mosquitos. Possums, rats, and raccoons also love the coverage and feeding opportunities that dense, overgrown yards provide. If you don't want these furry little friends to take up residence in your yard, keep the vegetation at bay. You can do this by mowing, weed eating, and pulling up invasive plants up from the roots.
Florida is wonderful for landscaping because the of its plant-friendly climate. This same climate means that a neglected yard can go from unkempt to Jumanji in no time! Plants growing in toward your house can creep inside, wreaking havoc with weather stripping, paint, and wood. This can increase your heating and cooling costs, and cause damage that requires repairs. Routine maintenance is a strong component of maintaining the value of your home. Keep your yard out of your house by doing regular walk-arounds and checking the space between your exterior walls and any shrubbery around your home. These shrubs often harbor vines that will begin to creep in as they grow.
Routine lawn maintenance helps your home hold and increase in value by protecting it from damage caused by vegetation and from pests. Once you have a regular maintenance plan in place, you'll love the aesthetic beauty of a well-manicured lawn, and the joy of spending time enjoying the outdoor space as an extension of your home.
