Denver landscaping projects you can complete during quarantine
May 6, 2020
The state of the world, and the United States, is unpredictable right now. When are we going to resume life as normal? No one knows. While you are stuck inside (or maybe making the personal decision) to stay inside, there has never been a better time to start working on house projects...particularly landscaping. We’ve compiled our list of four things you should be doing now to help create a beautifully landscaped Denver yard
Project #1 - Clean
Cleaning applies to more than just indoors, it applies to your yard as well! Outdoor cleaning includes picking up twigs, trash, large rocks, etc... pretty much whatever accumulates on your yard throughout the week. Keeping your yard free of debris is the best way to ensure healthy growth, and a beautiful looking yard. Something else you can do? If you have siding, take a look to see if there is any algae growing. You can remove algae growing on the side of your home with some warm water and vinegar - but avoid using a power washer. This can cause your siding to come off!
Project #2 - Seeding
If you are noticing some bare spots in your yard, there has never been a better time to do a light seeding. Grab some grass seed (we recommend checking to make sure you buy the same type of grass that is in your yard) and do a light seeding yard-wide. After you are done seeding, be sure to place some cover down (we recommend some dirt) but hay will work as well. Make sure when planting in the spring you do so early, so that you can enjoy mild temperatures.
Project #3 - Weeds
Whew. Weeds. Weeds can be one of the biggest nuisances when it comes to landscaping and yard maintenance. There’s never been a better time to work through picking weeds (ensuring to get the whole root), and spraying your yard.
Project #4 - Mulching
Mulch is going to be your best friend when it comes to maintaining moisture around your plants. Mulch is not only a beautiful addition to your landscaping, but it’s heavy weight and makeup will ensure it maintains as much moisture as possible. Now this is something you should definitely do closer to the warmer months, but we recommend starting to budget for this now. Mulch can get pricey - but it’s worth the cost.
