The summer months are quickly approaching. As the warm weather brings our families outdoors, we want to ensure that any residue from last winter is thoroughly taken care of. Give the yard some TLC, and do not delay spring cleaning. Weather permitting, outdoor spring cleaning can take place from late March to early May. Keep in mind; spring cleaning is not solely meant for aesthetics; it is essential for your yard’s health and future health. The best solution to ensure proper spring maintenance is by ensuring you are fully equipped with the top three essential landscaping supplies ahead of time. At FSI Landscape Supply, we suggest suitable tools, mulch, and landscape edging.
Over time your arsenal of landscaping tools may look like they have been through many adventures and projects. Although the tools may work, they may not work as effectively as they once did. When using older landscaping supplies, tools, and equipment, may also be a safety hazard. Rust, broken, or malfunctioning pieces will not help complete the job any quicker and will most likely cause double the work. It is recommended to remove all soil and debris to prevent caking to maintain your landscaping tools’ longevity. This includes any equipment that has been used for chemical applications. Any residue left sitting can cause corrosion. Once the debris and other agents have been removed, it is best to ensure they are thoroughly dried before storing your equipment. By taking proper care of your landscaping supplies, it will extend the life expectancy. However, if your toolbox is in need of an upgrade, do not hesitate to replace them. At FSI Landscape Supply, our dedicated team of landscaping professionals can assist you in finding the appropriate tools for your landscaping projects. As well as offer the best landscaping advice on how to maintain the condition of your landscaping supplies.
Landscape edging offers aesthetics and separation. Although, it is not necessarily a landscaping tool for spring cleaning. Landscape edging helps maintain the appearance of the lawn and landscape design. In our article titled “The importance of landscape edging,” we mention how weeds, grass/ grass seeds, and other debris can migrate to areas where they do not belong, resulting in the disruption of the lawn’s health and aesthetic. Weeds and random grass peeking through the foundation of a new patio or garden beds can look unsightly and give the impression of an unkept landscape. At FSI Landscape Supply, we offer aluminum and plastic edging, perfect for keeping weeds, seeds, and plant roots in place. By incorporating landscape edging, you can create a neat and organized lawn ready for the summer months ahead.
Materials such as mulch are also considered to be an essential landscaping supply for spring cleaning. Mulch decomposes over time. Its placement may be disrupted by heavy foot traffic as a result of a busy household that may include pets, or perhaps natural weather elements can also disrupt its placement. Therefore, to maintain the aesthetic and finish this year’s spring cleaning, consider replacing the mulch. As mulch comes in various colours, its addition can enhance the surrounding plant life’s vibrant natural colours.
