Steps to Cleaning up your Yard this Spring

  • While we may still have a few weeks of winter left to endure, that doesn’t mean we can’t start prepping our spring cleaning to-do list. One of the items on your list should be cleaning up your yard. Winter weather will have put its stamp on your yard and you will need to put in some effort to get it back to where it was last year. To help you with this process we at 1st Choice Storage in Miami have provided you with some steps you should take when you are cleaning up your yard this spring.
  • Remove the Trash
  • Winter weather brings in fierce winds. The winds tend to carry various debris and trash that end up getting trapped in your yard. Once the snow and ice clear you will definitely notice how much has accumulated over the past few months. Once the trash is bagged and removed, take the time to pick up any fallen branches or twigs. You can save them for later when it’s time to gather around the summer fire pit.
  • Trim and Prune your Plants
  • Trimming and pruning your worn bushes, trees, shrubbery, and plants that were left standing in the fall, as well as other winter-worn plants that need it will keep your landscape healthy and thriving for the warmer seasons. Be careful not to prune you plants too much and remove healthy growth.
  • Tend to the Lawn
  • While most over seeding should be done in the fall, you can do thinner areas in the spring if you notice any rough spots in your lawn. This way your lawn should be lush and green when you are ready to enjoy the warmer season. Next, wait until the grass is at least 4-5 inches tall before you resume regular mowing. Doing this will ensure your grass to be green and thriving for the warmer months ahead.
  • Bring out the Patio Storage
  • When the weather warms up enough for you to enjoy being outside in the fresh air, it is time to finally bring your patio furniture out of storage. Having them placed in a storage unit at 1st Choice Storage in Miami guarantees that they will be ready for use when spring finally arrives. A good dusting and maybe a wash of the linens to your patio furniture will make them look pristine and ready for you to enjoy.
