Top 3 Spring Landscaping Tips

Spring is in the air and that means a renewed interest in what’s going on with the landscaping of your rental property. Spending a few hours tackling some neglected projects outside can make a huge difference in the entire look of your property. After all, not only do you want to make it appealing and welcoming to your current tenants, you also want to give the right impression to those who pass by. You never know when you might be in the market for a new tenant.

1. Weed

This might sound like a chore that is both tedious and unnecessary but you’ll be surprised at the transformation that occurs in your landscaping. Without the brown and dried-up weeds clogging your garden beds and other areas of your yard, the property will look neater and more pleasant. The foliage that you want to highlight will have the attention it deserves.

2. Prune

Pruning is an activity that delivers results that you’ll see at a later date. Though it can make your trees and shrubs look less than beautiful at the current time, there are huge benefits later in the future. Pruning provides your landscaping with two benefits:

  • First, it cleans up the messy growth that could also be unhealthy.
  • Second, it removes dead material that allows new growth to appear in all its beauty.

3. Cutbacks

Spring is also the ideal time to make cutbacks to larger trees and plants. Whether it is because bushes have become unruly enough to partially block access to windows or because they are simply making the landscaping look messy, completing cutbacks now makes the property look cleaner and well maintained. Putting off cutbacks until later in the spring or even during the summer could damage the plant so severely that its growth is stunted or it dies.
