Spring Into Yard Clean Up: Tips from Code Enforcement

Early spring is a great time to clean up your yard and prepare it for the warmer months ahead! Here are some tips for spring yard cleanup: 

Remove debris: Clear out any dead leaves, branches or other debris that may have accumulated over the winter. This will help prevent pests and diseases from taking hold in your yard.

Prune trees and shrubs: Spring is a good time to prune your trees and shrubs to promote healthy growth. Be sure to remove any dead or damaged branches and shape the plant as desired.

Plant new trees and shrubs: If you’re looking to add some new greenery to your yard, spring is a great time to do it! Just be sure to choose plants that are appropriate for your climate and soil type.

Mulch: Adding a layer of mulch to your garden beds can help retain moisture and suppress weeds. Be sure to use a natural mulch like wood chips or shredded leaves.

Clean gutters: Gutters can become clogged with leaves and debris over the winter, so be sure to clean them out in the spring to prevent water damage to your home.

As for tree removal, the best time to do it is during the dormant season, which is typically in late winter or early spring. During this time, trees are less likely to be actively growing, which makes it easier to remove them. Additionally, tree removal companies may offer lower rates during the dormant season.
