Once the spring season arrives, you should reshape your landscape beds.

Over the winter, your landscape beds might lose their defined shape due to heavy snowfall, high winds, or other factors. Once the spring season arrives, you may notice that the edges around them need to be cleaned up. That's why you should reshape them in the spring. To do this, you'll want to edge along their border to redefine their shape and give them clean lines. This will instantly make them stand out and improve the overall curb appeal of your property!

Remove debris from your landscape beds and yard in the spring to create a well-kept look.

Various debris such as leaves and sticks can pile up in your yard and landscape beds over the winter. The debris creates an unattractive appearance and can even attract pests and negatively affect your lawn's health! You want to remove debris from your yard in the spring as soon as possible to prevent it from causing health issues for your grass and plants and to improve the overall beauty of your property.

When a lawn is covered in debris, it can suffocate the grass and prevent it from accessing the nutrients, water, and sunlight it needs to thrive!

Both will also enhance the appearance of your landscape beds while providing several benefits to your plants such as weed suppression, moisture retention, soil temperature regulation, and more!
