Lawn Care Tips for Spring

Spring is the perfect time to handle all those lawn care tasks on your to-do list. Our real estate agents know that a lush, green lawn also helps your home look inviting to potential buyers. Check out these spring lawn care tips to get your yard looking its best.

  1. Clean Up Your Yard
    When your yard has dried out from the latest round of rain or winter precipitation, set aside time to pick up any debris and dead vegetation. Focus on picking up leaves, wayward rocks, and sticks. If you have snow that's refusing to leave, use a shovel to gently spread it out so that it'll melt quicker.
