10 Tips to Prepare your Home for Spring Landscaping

Once the first official frost is no longer a threat, don’t you just want to run out into your yard and start spring landscaping?   All winter long the excuse of it being too cold, or everything is covered with snow is no longer an issue. Now that spring is here, gardening, landscaping and increasing your curb appeal is on most people’s minds. Depending on your geographic location and what type of soil and plants are native to your region will steer you in the right direction for your home.  Here are 10 tips to also help you prepare your outdoor home for gorgeous landscaping.

1.)  Know your climate: Before you get too excited in the garden area or nursery of your local home improvement store, know the climate for your home.
