Do It Yourself Landscaping Tips

Homeowners often decide that they can’t afford a professional landscaping company so they try to do much of the work themselves. The climate in Utah makes landscaping a bit challenging however. You never know when you’ll get rain, snow or sunshine. It’s often difficult to decide when to fertilize the lawn and clean out those flower beds.

All States Landscaping has built a solid reputation in the Salt Lake City area as a reputable Utah landscaping company. We are experts at performing every type of lawn and garden project, even snow removal. If you are dead set on doing it yourself this year, then we want to offer you a few tips.

The first tip concerns the weather. By keeping an eye on the local weather, you can often tell when the last snow of the season has come and gone. After that, you can begin the removal of any remaining snow and then start cleaning out your flower beds.

Be sure to cut back any dead portions of your plants and bushes. It’s best to purchase the largest trash bags available and be sure to get a sturdy brand that won’t burst open. You can even cut back the lower limbs on small trees if you have the proper tools for this task. This is a good time to check for any damage to trees and bushes from insects or small animals.

Once the debris has been removed from your yard, it is time to fertilize flower beds and lawn. Different types of grass and shrubbery require various types of fertilizer. They also must be fertilized at different times of the season based on their growth pattern and type of plant or greenery.

Once you have your lawn and plants trimmed back and fertilized, it is time to put into the ground any new plants, bushes or shrubs you would like to add to your Utah yard. Be sure to till the soil first so that it is loose and aerated.

Though a beautiful yard is important to most Utah homeowners, their busy lifestyle can keep them from being able to get out there every weekend and do the required work. There’s a lot of hauling off debris and hauling in new plants, not to mention some backbreaking labor required.
