Spring is here, and it's time to ready, set, grow!

Preparing a property for summer can be overwhelming, but ensuring a welcoming and well-maintained environment for your customers, clients, employees, and neighborhood starts with the spring cleanup. We're here to help with three easy steps to prepare your property for the season.

Ready : Exterior Cleanup: 

Start by thoroughly cleaning your property's exterior. Remove any debris from walkways, parking lots, and outdoor areas, such as leaves, branches, and trash. Power wash the building's exterior, windows, and sidewalks to remove dirt and grime accumulated during the winter months.

In the Northwest spring, moss accumulates on walkways, siding, and gutters and will also need removal. Not only is power washing extremely satisfying, but it instantly freshens up the appearance of your property and creates a positive first impression.

Set : Landscaping Refresh:

  • Focus on revitalizing your landscaping to enhance the curb appeal of your commercial property.
  • Trim back overgrown shrubs and trees, and remove any dead plants or branches.
  • Clear out weeds and mulch flower beds to suppress further weed growth and give a neat and polished look.

This is when you should first fertilize your lawns and flower beds. We recommend a slow-release fertilizer high in nitrogen to aid in new growth. This is also the time of year for the first mowing of the season. Remember that your first mow should be no shorter than 3.5 inches to guarantee thick healthy turf.

Grow: Planting and Irrigation

This is the best time of year to plant most perennials, trees, and vibrant seasonal flowers to add pops of color. It's also the perfect time to remove unwanted plants and shrubs while the ground is still soft and roots need to be established. This is also the time you should consider your irrigation and drip-line systems. Test your lines for leaks, breaks, and damaged sprinkler heads. Consider upgrading old and leaky heads to highly efficient sprinklers and nozzles that will save water and money. Upgrading timers to the latest local weather-based technology should also be taken into consideration for additional water savings and potential rebates
