Spring Is Here – Get Your Yard Ready For Summer
Here in New England we are coming off one of the worst winters I can remember in a VERY long time. Now that Spring has finally arrived I’ve been busy planning spring landscaping projects that will ensure our yard is looking it’s best this summer.
Each Spring I do several things around the yard that help keep our lawn looking great all summer. These tasks all require a small tractor because of the size of our yard. If you don’t own a tractor or you’re in the market for a new one you might want to check out the selection at The Home Depot. They have a huge selection of tractors and accessories to help with spring landscaping projects.
Some of my Spring Landscaping tasks include the following:
- Lawn Core Aeration – Aerating your lawn is a great way to help promote better lawn root growth which ultimately means a thicker healthier lawn. If you’d like to learn more about aerating your lawn check out my lawn core aeration article. Trust me you’ll need a tractor for this task!
- Lawn Fertilizing – Fertilizing your lawn is a very important spring project if you want a greener, healthier lawn this year. If you have a large yard like mine you’ll also need a tractor for this task so you can pull a large spreader around the yard.
- Yard Clean Up – Lastly I always clean up the yard after a long winter. I use my John Deere X300 mower to town around a small cart that I collect all the brush and dead plants from last season.
So when you think about it mowers and tractors are far more useful than you might think. Sure they help keep the grass cut all summer long but they can be extremely useful for other tasks like the ones I’ve pointed out above. So if you’re in the market for a new mower or tractor why not check out the selection at The Home Depot website. On that site you can compare different brands and models side-by-side before even stepping into a store.
