Now, you might be wondering, why bother with a spring cleanup?

As Spring begins to grace British Columbia, we understand that your first instinct might not be to rush into the garden when it’s still a bit chilly out. Who wants to wrestle with their unruly yard in sub-10° weather? But fear not! Our Deca team is on the move early, so you can stay snug indoors while your yard gets the care it deserves.

Well, besides the pure joy that a beautiful garden, a lush green yard, and well-groomed trees can bring, a proper spring cleanup is like hitting the refresh button for your outdoors.

It clears away the debris and clutter that winter has left behind, creating a healthy environment that’s perfect for nurturing a thriving ecosystem in your garden. You see, British Columbia’s winter can leave quite a mess, and it’s essential to give your garden a clean slate for the new season.

So, what’s on the spring cleanup checklist? Let’s break it down for you.

Grass Care in Spring Cleanup

Grass Care in Spring Cleanup

Your yard is the heart of your outdoor space, and ensuring its health is key to having a beautiful home and a successful spring cleanup. Here in British Columbia, your yard might have endured some damage during the winter, so it’s time to give it a little makeover.

If wildlife or your playful kids have turned certain areas of your yard into high-traffic zones, you can use topsoil, grass seeds, and fertilizers to patch them up. Additionally, be sure to clear away any winter debris that could create bare spots. Lastly, at Deca, we recommend a round of fertilizer and lime treatment for the entire lawn. Think of fertilizer as a nutritious meal for your grass to help it grow strong. Lime is like an alkaline boost for your lawn. You see, if your yard’s pH level is too low (acidic), it won’t effectively absorb the nutrients from the fertilizer. Given the generous rainfall in British Columbia, yards here can quickly become overly acidic. Without the lime treatment, your results may fall flat. So, including these steps in your spring cleanup routine will have your outdoor space looking so good that everyone will be envious.

Spring Cleanup for Perennials

Spring Cleanup for Perennials

In British Columbia, perennial plants are in abundance! Perennials are those sturdy plants that grace your garden for more than two years. This category includes trees, shrubs, and other larger plants. When it comes to spring cleaning your perennials, here’s what you need to focus on.

First, bid farewell to any dead, ailing, or disease-ridden branches. This not only tidies up your garden but also allows the healthy branches to thrive by getting more light and accessing water and nutrients more easily from the soil. Second, you should trim or remove any branches that are blocking paths, walkways, or roads. This not only prevents pedestrians from colliding with branches but also keeps you in the good books of your city – no one wants a complaint about overgrown branches.

Mostly, you’ll be clearing away the dead debris, or for smaller perennials, giving them a trim to encourage new spring growth.

Spring Cleanup: pot Gardening

Just like the other areas, your garden will have gathered its fair share of winter debris and clutter, especially in beautiful British Columbia. It’s important not to rush into a spring cleanup before the ground has thawed. But once it’s ready, roll up your sleeves and get to work. Start by clearing out any remaining leaves, branches, or other foliage.

Next up, those pesky weeds. They tend to take up space and steal the spotlight from your lovely flowers. To give your flowers the best chance to bloom, you’ll want to create plenty of space for them. Call your local Deca team to get rid of the clutter, tame those unruly weeds, and clear the way for a vibrant garden this spring.

Walkways & Patios

In British Columbia, we get our fair share of debris falling from the sky, and that means keeping the walkways and patios clean can feel like a weekly chore. These areas are where you’ll likely enjoy your yard the most, but if they’re covered in dirt and grime, it’s hard to appreciate your beautiful outdoor space. To avoid this during your spring cleanup, take the time to clean your outdoor furniture, inspect for mold and mildew, and consider pressure washing your pathways to give them that fresh, clean look. Many of our Deca franchisees also offer pressure washing services to help you achieve that spotless finish.

Keep an eye out for the last frost, and remember, we’re here to help. In British Columbia, our Deca family is excited to assist you in making your dream yard a reality. Feel FREE to reach out for your annual spring cleanup – we’re just a call away!
