3 Spring Landscaping Tasks that need your attention NOW!

3 Spring Landscaping Estimates You Need Now!

Spring is more than just a season; it's a canvas waiting to be painted with the vibrant colors of renewal and growth. However, this canvas doesn't reveal its masterpiece by chance. It requires the artful hand of planning and precision to bring out its full potential, especially when it comes to your home's curb appeal.

In the world of landscaping, timing can often mean the difference between a breathtaking garden and a lackluster lawn. The all-important first quarter of the year is booking season — a crucial time for homeowners who aim to welcome spring with a landscape that turns heads and stands the test of time.

Dethatching of Turf

Think of dethatching as spring cleaning for your lawn. Over time, a blend of living and dead plant material — known as thatch — can build up in your turf, preventing necessary moisture and nutrients from reaching the soil beneath. At Well Done Landscapes, we've transformed many a lawn by meticulously dethatching, allowing grass roots to breathe and promoting healthier, thicker grass. But here's the catch: this process should be scheduled and completed as soon as the frost leaves the ground, and before grass enters its peak growing season, usually in early spring.

Why Waiting Is Not an Option

It's simple: turf maintenance must align with nature's schedule (which is certainly not convenient with that commute to Boston or Providence for work). Dethatching too late in the season can stress out growing grass, inhibiting its natural recovery and potentially setting it back for the entire year. Early birds catch the healthiest worms, and those who book their dethatching sessions early avoid the bottleneck of jobs that rush in as spring temperatures climb.

How to Tell if Your Lawn Needs It

Walk across your lawn — feel spongy resistance? The telltale sign of a thatch buildup. You could wait for clear evidence like a soggy lawn after a rain or patches that fail to green up. However, a proactive approach will always win the day.

Spring Cleaning Essentials for Your Lawn

  • For small lawn areas (5,000 sq' and less) a spring rake and alot of elbow grease for you do it yourselfers out there!
  • A gas powered dethatching machine for larger areas such as the majority of lawns around the South Eastern Massachusetts area

Spring Clean Up and Mulching

Ah, the annual rite of passage to declutter for rejuvenation! Well Done users across the region have sung our praises for the difference our Spring Clean Up and Mulching services have made to their homes' aesthetics and the overall health of their landscapes. As blossoms begin to bud, getting rid of winter's detritus and preparing the soil with a fresh mulch layer is a gesture of care that your garden repays in full with robust growth and vibrant colors.

Why It's a Job for Now

Spring clean up must be timed so you're not too early to the party, left cleaning up after late frost or too late to have a substantial effect. A mulch refresh holds essential moisture and safeguards roots against temperature fluctuations during early spring, especially in unpredictable climates. Plan for your clean up to be completed before April showers roll in, and secure your mulch layer before late spring when temperatures really start rising.

Your Checklist for Renewal

  • Clearing dead leaves and debris.
  • Trimming and pruning shrubs and trees that have endured the winter poorly.
  • Edging beds for a clean, defined look.
  • Applying a layer of mulch to help soil retain moisture and keep weeds at bay.

Pre-Emergent Weed Control

Weeding is one of the most despised but vital gardening tasks. However, if approached with the deliberation and timing it deserves, the battle against weeds can be far less daunting.

Why Act Now

Pre-emergent herbicides work best when laid down before weed seeds begin to germinate, typically when soil temperatures consistently creep above 50°F. By preventing weeds from establishing themselves, this method gives your plants an uncrowded environment to flourish.

In the Nick of Time

The window for effective pre-emergent application is narrow and easily missed. Applied too soon and the results will fade or miss the targeted weeds, apply too late and you've got weeeds... everywhere! Plan to have yours administered early in spring, usually around the time you see the forsythia bloom.
