The ultimate Massachusetts spring cleanup checklist

1. Do your winter cleanup

First things first, let's clean up that winter debris. Rake up any leaves, twigs, and other remnants that fall and winter left behind. This will not only make your yard look more presentable, but it will also prevent any damage to your grass from rot and mold.

2. Prune like a pro

Trim up the branches on your trees and shrubs to help them grow strong and healthy come summertime. Removing dead or damaged branches will give your plants the fresh start they deserve! Pruning will also help plants thrive during their spring and summer growing seasons.

3. Mulch your flower beds

A little mulch can go a long way in refreshing the look of your garden beds. Not only does it help prevent weeds from sprouting, but it also helps retain moisture and keeps your plants happy and hydrated all season long.

4. Show your lawn some love

Aerate your lawn to help it breathe and absorb nutrients more efficiently. If you don't have an aerator, rent one from your local home improvement store or contact the ND Landscape Services team. After aerating, consider applying a slow-release fertilizer to give your grass the boost it needs to grow lush and green.

5. Plant fresh flowers

Once you've cleared the clutter from your flower beds, it's time to get your hands dirty and plant new blooms. Spring is the perfect time to plant annuals, perennials, and even some veggies! Consult with your local nursery to find out which flowers are best suited to the Massachusetts climate, or contact ND Landscape Services.

6. Transform your lawn with hardscaping

Consider adding hardscaping elements to your yard, such as a stone walkway, retaining wall, or fire pit. These features add a touch of sophistication and charm. They also provide functionality and can even increase the value of your home.
