Whether you’re keeping a nice garden or your yard is bare, it is still important to keep it clean. Not only does it keep the mosquitoes from entering our home, but it also makes it pleasing to live in. If you do not want to end up paying for a lawn mowing service or spend a greater time mowing it yourself, follow these tips and do it on a regular basis.
Clean your roof regularly.
Okay, but how does the roof have anything to do with the ground? Well, first off, it’s near the trees. It is the first one to receive dry leaves and twigs before they hit the ground.
Even though you always see to it that your ground is free from tree trash, it would still get dirty if your roof is dirty because this trash will be flown by the wind to the ground. Get a broom and be sure that all the trash is off the roof surface. Once the roof is done, get a long stick and cover the tip with a rag tightly. Be sure to get all the dirt on the gutter using this DIY tool.
Clean out Tree Stumps.
Tree stumps are cool if they blend in well with the yard’s landscape or if they’re being used as a table for your garden’s conversation area. But if they’re irregular in shape and are rotting horribly, they need to be dug out as soon as possible.
Cleaning a tree stump takes a lot of hard work and the right tools and if you have neither, you can hire a professional tree pruning service to do all the digging, cleaning, and polishing for you. This is a one-time fee compared to a long-time brooding of your yard’s problem.
Get a nice furniture set-up
by improving the outdoor standard on your furnitures. It can be as simple as a new set of chairs, a porch swing or things that could easily be used as storage. Like deck storage boxes for example. Or my favorite – buying a hammock stand and a relaxing hammock to go with it! (courtesy and inspiration from: https://royalhammockheadquarters.com)
Trim the lawn.
Just like you regularly trim your hair or even change hairstyles, your lawn could also need a little TLC. Do it yourself if you have a lawn trimmer or hire a professional, just make sure to evenly cut and clean the edges that are near the planting beds or cemented areas so they’ll look neat and won’t grow on completely different directions. Using a simple thing as a lawn mower could increase overall look of your garden with a simple measure.
Plant on bare patches.
Do you have kids or pets that just love to dig everything on the yard for no reason? Plant a seed on them (the patches, not the kids)! Just use your green thumb and make sure that the seeds will grow just fine in that area. If you opt to plant flowers on them, throw 3-6 seeds to make them look like totally planned bushes of flowers and not just simply a cover-up for your kids’ crime.
Loosen the soil.
After a cold season, the soil on your lawn will be hardened and it would be hard (no pun intended) to keep your flower beds alive if the soil is preventing the flowers and the grass to grow. Make sure that you loosen the soil as regularly as possible and allow the roots to breathe. This also makes the grass and other plants to get more nutrients, thus keeping them healthy.
