Prepare Your Landscaping Equipment And Property For Planting Season

Posted on

Now is the time to consider how you would like to improve the appearance of your property. Before you know it, it will be spring and planting season. Use the tips below to outline your gameplan and prepare your yard for the impending additions that you have chosen.


Inspect, Repair, And Replace Equipment

The sprinkler system, garden tiller, hand tools, and any other landscaping equipment that you own should be inspected so that you can depend upon each item when you are ready to plant items on your property. After plugging in the sprinkler system, check the drip emitters that are secured inside of the tubing that the sprinkler system is constructed of. If any of the emitters are clogged, pull them out by hand and use a scrub brush to loosen debris that is stuck inside of each emitter.

Use a damp scrub brush or sponge to clean the garden tiller's blades so that the blades move freely when the tiller is pushed across the ground. Use a sponge and soapy water to clean hand tools. If any of the items you own are damaged and you are unable to fix them, stop by a gardening center to purchase replacement items. 

Choose Plant Varieties And Purchase Supplies

If you are unsure of what types of plants you would like to purchase, take the color of your home's exterior, lawn decorations, and any other permanent fixtures on your property into consideration when contemplating plant varieties.

Choose plants that tend to grow well in the climate that you live in. If you are someone who doesn't have a lot of free time on your hands, choose plant varieties that won't require much maintenance. Purchase seeds, small peat pots, and potting soil. Plant the seeds and keep the pots inside of your home until you are ready to plant the seedlings outdoors. 

Clear Property, Mark, And Maintain Your Land

Decide where you want to plant the seedlings. An area in front of your home or next to a patio will beautify your property and provide you with easy access to the plants. After clearing the property and using stakes to mark the land, you are all set to plant the seedlings. After planting the seedlings, install the sprinkler system next to the new additions. Turn on the sprinkler system regularly so that the roots of each plant remain moist.
