Can you believe it?! It's time to embrace the sights, sounds, smells, and sensations of spring.
After such a long, cold winter, springtime is a joy to behold. The icy, grey days are mostly finished, and green, sunny days and blue skies are emerging. The sensations of spring are always something amazing to experience. Here's a little taste of what's to come.
Spring sights will "wow" you with pops of color in all directions; bluer skies, greener grasses and a mosaic of blossoms appear before you. Its sounds will tell you Mother Nature is alive as if she's rising from a long winter's nap; birds tweet and twitter as wildlife scurry and skitter within the leftover leaves and atop the emerging grass. You'll hear the pitter-patter of raindrops.
Spring's scents will intoxicate you with an array of aromas; from trimmed lawns and fragrant blossoms to fresh dirt and falling rain, you're in for a treat. And spring's sensations will electrify you with warm sunshine and cool breezes.
Mother Nature has remodeled. And after the winter we had this year, we'd expect nothing less! Yet, as is the case with remodeling the interior of your home, to achieve the full effect-and make an impression-a thorough cleanup job is involved when your landscape transitions from winter to spring.
As any tree care professional will tell you, attractive, healthy trees don't just happen. While trees may be low maintenance, this doesn't mean one should ignore caring for their tall, leafy outdoor companions.
Safeguarding your landscape investment means seasonally tending to your trees. And spring is a great time to take a good look at how the trees in your landscape are faring and review the important steps to ensure their good health throughout the year. Looking for another helpful checklist?
