It is a new year, and that means many of you have a list of New Year’s resolutions. Maybe you are trying to remodel your home or tackle another home improvement project, but what about your lawn and landscaping? As a lawn care company serving Elk River, we have a few suggestions on what should be on your New Year’s resolutions list.

Start Planning

It is never too early to start planning for spring. Start thinking about what you would like to have planted, and start thinking about what tools you will need for your lawn care. You should take a look at your lawn and landscaping to see if there is anything you would like to change for the upcoming warm months. Do you want to transplant anything? Do you want to plant a new tree or shrub? Sketch some designs and start thinking about any changes you would like to make. Transplanting trees is usually easier in the cold months, so now might be the best time to do that.

Start Cleaning

Like we have recommended before, winter weather does not mean you should stop lawn care chores. Even if you only take a few minutes each week, be sure to keep debris off of your lawn and out of your flower beds. Take some time every week to look around your yard and landscaping for toys, leaves and anything else that might be sitting on your lawn.

Spring Start Ups

Sure, January is not when you want to schedule your spring start-up for your irrigation system. But now is the time to start planning for that. When would you like to be on our schedule for your spring start up? Be sure to give us a call soon to make that appointment. That way, you will not have to worry about this aspect of lawn care because it will already be scheduled and taken care of!

With a little bit of planning and preparation early this year, your lawn care chores should be easier to handle once the warmer weather hits. Believe it or not, spring is right around the corner! Take some time to plan your lawn care in advance to make your life a bit easier once the seasons change again.
