Commercial Landscaping Tips for Spring
To prepare outdoor areas for the growing season, the professionals at Petalon Landscape Management offer these common-sense commercial landscaping tips for spring:
- Perform a general cleanup of the landscape. Fallen leaves, branches and other debris that accumulate during winter should removed. If needed, it’s a good time to repair your hardscaping.
- Assess trees for signs of disease. Spring is the best time to evaluate the condition of your trees, before growth begins. We can then prune your trees and encourage healthy growth with deep root fertilizing and mulching.
- Aerate grass areas. Lawns require periodic aeration to make certain that water, oxygen and nutrients reach the roots. To eliminate unsightly brown areas, Petalon also repairs your lawns by reseeding or installing fresh sod. We also edge lawns for a fresh, tidy appearance.
- Prune with precision. Plants are healthier and better looking when pruned by experts who understand their natural growth habits. Early spring, before the growing season, is an ideal time to prune.
- Adjust, repair and update irrigation systems. Systems left idle during the winter need sprinkler adjustments to ensure a landscape is evenly watered. Spring is also the time to identify areas of standing water for remediation, repair leaks or broken equipment, and update with modern irrigation methods, if necessary.
