National Backyard Day is here!






Get your yard ready for spring with these essential tips for homeowners in Western North Carolina and Upstate South Carolina. From lawn care to garden prep, make the most of the season!








As the temperatures begin to rise and the days get longer, it's time to start thinking about gettin that yard in order for Spring. For homeowners in Western North Carolina and Upstate South Carolina, this means taking steps to ensure your outdoor space is ready to flourish in the warmer months ahead. Is your yard up to par for those Southern Spring Garden Parties?



Here are some essential tips to help you get started:


Just Push That Winter Clutter On Out

Get those kiddos out there earning their keep! Start by removing any debris that has accumulated over the winter months, like fallen branches and leaves. This will help prevent mold and disease from taking hold in your yard and give you a clean slate to work with.

Rake and Aerate Your Lawn

Dig out those golf cleats! Raking your lawn will help remove dead grass and thatch, allowing new growth to come through. Aerating your lawn will help improve soil drainage and allow nutrients to reach the roots of your grass, promoting healthy growth.

Fertilize and Seed

Ready for that green? Spring is the perfect time to fertilize your lawn and apply grass seed to any bare patches. Choose a fertilizer that is specifically formulated for spring application and follow the instructions carefully to ensure the best results.

 Prune Shrubs and Trees

Take some time to prune any shrubs and trees in your yard to remove dead or damaged branches and promote healthy growth. This will also help improve air circulation and reduce the risk of disease. Let those Azaleas get their bloom on before snipping those Southern Charmers.

Plan Your Garden

If you have a garden or plan to start one this spring, now is the time to start planning. Consider what vegetables, flowers, and other plants you want to grow and start preparing your soil accordingly. If you're like us, you forget what is going to pop up where - write it down!

Mulch Flower Beds

Adding a layer of mulch to your flower beds will help retain moisture, suppress weeds, and improve the overall appearance of your yard. Choose a mulch that complements your landscaping and spread it evenly throughout your flower beds. Even better, start making your own this year, by getting some compost bins set up!

Whether you're a seasoned gardener or just starting out, taking the time to care for your yard now will pay off in the months to come.
