Tips for Sprucing Your Lawn and Fence Installation from your Denver Roofing Company


May 10, 2017

Spring is the ideal time to manage your outdoor space and make it enjoyable throughout the summer. Whether you are looking to boost curb appeal, the value of your home, or are preparing to sell your home, there are many things you can do to improve the quality of your landscaping. From landscaping to-dos and lawn care tips for your grass to the premier benefits of installing a fence around your home, try these go-to tips from your local Denver roofing company.

Landscaping To Dos

During the beginning of spring, it is important to assess your landscape and see where things can be improved. You may have plants that have died over the winter months, others that need some love and then there may be some changes you would like to make to your plant beds. Your top priority will be to pick out all dead plants, stems, twigs, etc. from plant beds. It’s also important to get out any weeds and use a pre-emergent to hinder weeds from sprouting throughout the year. Next, during the remulching process, only put one to two inches of new mulch down. Too much can suffocate your plants. Be sure to leave some space around the trunk of each plant.  

Lawn Care Tips

Your grass may be in rough shape from the harsh winter. But with a little TLC, you can restore your lawn to its best. Just as you will with your plant beds, it is important to use a pre-emergent on your lawn as well to help weeds from sprouting throughout the year. Next, look for any dead or brown patches as this can be a sign of insect damage. This is something you can work with a local landscaping company to help resolve. Next, spring is the best time to fertilize your grass. This will help it bounce back from the winter. It is also good to have a plan to water your lawn and potentially consider an irrigation system to help you to not over or under water your lawn.

Fence Installation

Adding a fence around your home can be a great addition to your home. It can serve multiple purposes from decorative to establishing boundaries from the areas on and off your property. Many choose to install a fence as an added safety measure. This can span from protecting your home from intruders and animals to creating a barrier to keep children or pets safe. When it comes to the type of fence you would like to install, you have a few options. Privacy fences are great to create a private space and are often chosen for backyards. Others like smaller decorative fences out front to build character. Have an HOA? Be sure you get permission prior to installing your fence.
