Each day that passes brings us closer to warmer weather and spending more time outside. If you’ve been hibernating inside your home during this icy winter, you might notice that your yard is in need of a little TLC. You might have plans for spring cleaning within your home, but we challenge you to take a look at the outside as well. Not sure where to start? Here are a few tips to freshen up your landscape in preparation for the spring season.
Cleaning up debris
This winter season, the New River Valley got hit with not only snow but ice storms as well. Because of this, you might notice more limbs and debris have fallen in your yard than usual. The first step to getting your landscape ready for spring is to take a walk around your property and pick up any extra debris leftover from the winter season.
One service we offer at Back to Nature is Bed Cleanup. In addition to cleaning up around your property, you’ll want to make sure your flower beds are refreshed and tidied up. This includes removing overgrown weeds, dead leaves, etc. Whether you’re looking to update your current setup or redesign your bed completely, our goal is to minimize the maintenance work for you to be able to keep the bed looking beautiful for the remainder of the year!
One of the visual reminders that spring has arrived is the arrival of bright, colorful flowers and greenery. After your plant bed has been cleaned up, one of the best ways to freshen up your yard for spring is to add a pop of color and beauty to your landscape.
From simple shrubbery and trees to your favorite springtime flowers, we offer plant installation services at Back to Nature to eliminate the stress on your end. You pick out the greenery you want to be planted – we do the hard work!
An act of labor, mulching can be time-consuming and hard work – but it’s so worth it! Not only does mulch add curb appeal, but it also provides key nutrients to keep your soil nice and healthy. This is another service where we can come in and take the workload off your hands, leaving you with a worry-free, quality mulch job complete.
Update Outdoor Gathering Space
Due to the current time we are living in, gathering indoors can be challenging and potentially unsafe. That’s why many people are turning to host friends and family outdoors, especially when the weather is nice outside. There are several ways that you can update your outdoor space to not only ‘wow’ your guests, but safely spend time together at a comfortable distance.
Patios have been huge for our New River Valley clients this past year and allowed people to have a cozy spot to enjoy outside the home. Choose between stone, brick, or concrete, and let us transform your backyard into a new space to gather with friends and family. Add in a fire pit and a grill with some comfy patio furniture and you’ve got all the ingredients for a fun day with guests. Pro-tip: update outdoor lighting around your patio space to keep the party going into the evening time!
Water features are another great way to enhance your outdoor space and create a relaxing atmosphere right in your backyard. With our experience and knowledge in horticulture techniques, we can create a customized pond or babbling waterfall for your landscape design.
All of the ideas mentioned above can be implemented by our team at Back to Nature. Having a functional, appealing outdoor space is more important than ever, and our team has the expertise to complete jobs customized to your liking. Contact us to get started on your spring refresh projects today!
