Driving up your driveway and seeing a lush green lawn and well-maintained landscape can make you feel proud as a homeowner. It also welcomes friends, family, or other guests. But usually, the winter season wreaks havoc on landscapes, leaving you feeling overwhelmed or discouraged about getting your landscape ready for spring. So today on the blog, explore four affordable ways to spruce up your landscape so that you’re ready to entertain as soon as the weather breaks.

Clean up

The first thing to start when sprucing up your landscape is to clean sidewalks, walkways, paths, driveways, porches, and patios. Remove debris from these areas, pressure wash if needed, and relocate any items you won’t need for spring and summer. It may also be a good time to bring out your outdoor furniture and cushions if you stored them during the winter. Also, clean out your garden beds from any leftover leaves and twigs that fell during the winter.

Refresh with mulch

Mulch is an affordable way to spruce up your garden beds. You can purchase dyed and natural mulch from your local garden center, which is usually pricier, or find a local place that grinds stumps and dead trees for natural mulch that costs less. Most garden centers will deliver mulch for a small fee, or you can opt for bagged mulch and haul in your own vehicle if you don’t have a truck and trailer for loose mulch by the scoop. Be sure to measure your beds and calculate how much mulch you need in advance so that you don’t have to pay for delivery fees more than once or make multiple trips to the store.

Feed your lawn

As soon as grass growing season starts, feed your lawn, or hire a professional landscaper in Kingsport to handle the job for you. Lawn feed provides micronutrients to the grass root system to promote healthy, lush green grass. If you aren’t sure which type of lawn feed to use for your specific grass type, consult a professional landscaper or ask for advice at your local garden center if you prefer to spread lawn feed yourself.

Add a splash of color

Plant some spring blooming plants and flowers in your flower beds or pots that you can place around your landscape. Adding this splash of color gives your landscape a fresh look for spring and you’ll enjoy their pleasing scent as well. Ideal plants that are affordable are pansies, hyacinths, and tulips. However, tulip bulbs should be planted the previous fall, although you can purchase potted tulips if you didn’t set your bulbs out in time.
