How to Spring Clean your Yard

 In Home Maintenance, Self Storage, Uncategorized

Spring is just around the corner, which means we will have our yearly spring cleaning duties to think about. One that is not often thought of is the cleaning and decluttering of our yards. Listed below are some steps to help you in getting your yard back into tip-top shape this spring.


Remove the Trash

Winter weather brings in fierce winds. The winds tend to carry various debris and trash that end up getting trapped in your yard. Once the snow and ice clear you will definitely notice how much has accumulated over the past few months. Once the trash is bagged and removed, take the time to pick up any fallen branches or twigs. You can save them for later when it’s time to gather around the summer fire pit.


Trim and Prune your Plants

Trimming and pruning your worn bushes, trees, shrubbery, and plants that were left standing in the fall, as well as other winter-worn plants that need it will keep your landscape healthy and thriving for the warmer seasons. Be careful not to prune you plants too much and remove healthy growth.


Tend to the Lawn

While most over seeding should be done in the fall, you can do thinner areas in the spring if you notice any rough spots in your lawn. This way your lawn should be lush and green when you are ready to enjoy the warmer season. Next, wait until the grass is at least 4-5 inches tall before you resume regular mowing. Doing this will ensure your grass to be green and thriving for the warmer months ahead.


Bring out the Patio Storage

When the weather warms up enough for you to enjoy being outside in the fresh air, it is time to finally bring your patio furniture out of storage. Having them placed in a storage unit at All American Self Storage in San Mateo guarantees that they will be ready for use when spring finally arrives. A good dusting and maybe a wash of the linens to your patio furniture will make them look pristine and ready for you to enjoy.
