So you’ve decided your yard could use a little work. Maybe you’ve just moved into a new property and found the previous residents have left you an impenetrable jungle as a moving in present. Or maybe you’ve left yourself the gift of uncontrolled weed growth through a bit of good old-fashioned neglect.
Well, no matter – there’s no time like the present and, with a bit of work, you can have a beautiful, landscaped yard too. Here a few tips to help you along!
Start with the clean up. It might not be much fun but you need to know what you’ve got to work with. How much of a clean up of course is up to you. You might just need to clean back the growth and tidy up any left over debris from winter or fall to unearth a beautiful, tidy yard waiting underneath or maybe you want a completely blank canvas, and are going to strip everything back to the very beginnings – either approach is fine! Checklists are also great to stay organized.
