Spring cleaning also means cleaning for Spring!
They say April is supposed to come in like a lion, but we didn’t expect the entire pride! Four storms in a month has meant just endless heavy winds and snow, taking down innumerable trees and branches. Have Gerbert & Sons take a look at the trees and bushes Mother Nature has “pruned” for you- we’ll remove any broken, diseased or dead limbs and branches and suggest new plantings to replace ones that didn’t make it through this especially harsh winter. While you’re sprucing up the yard, now is a great time to freshen up the edges of your garden beds so they’re in perfect shape when the green shoots finally start to raise their heads! Overwintering pests and diseases can hide out in old seed heads or dead leaves and stalks, so be sure to rid your garden of this debris before introducing new plants. By the end of the month, it will be time for pansies and snapdragons, along with other cool-season annual plantings, weather permitting of course! Once the weather people can confidently say we’re done with the snow, perennials and grasses can be cut back before new shoots pop out, and plants such as hostas should be divided. Don’t forget to take a look at your house plants and encourage new growth by cutting back any that have become leggy over the winter months.
Call Gerbert & Sons to have your yard looking like winter never happened!
