With spring cleaning to look forward to, a lot of homeowners dread all the activities that spring will bring, and prefer to start early. This is a definite possibility with garden and lawn care projects, and you’ll find that starting them early can be very rewarding as well, for a number of good reasons:
- For starters, in the winter, gardening tools are a lot less expensive than in the spring, when everyone starts to look for them. So, by starting to look for them early, you might even be able to save a lot of money.
- Although some gardening tasks are easier in the spring, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t prepare for them as early as possible. If you do, that means you’ll have a lot more time later on.
- Getting a head start with gardening and lawn care projects will also help you get a more affordable rate if you have to hire someone to do it for you. Since the demand isn’t as high, this is a definite possibility.
- Finally, you needn’t worry that your soil is still frozen or that your plants and bushes are not yet ready to grow. Between cleaning your garden, tending to your lawn, getting rid of weeds and working on your soil’s alkalinity, you’ll find there are a lot of important tasks you can do without delving into the most important ones yet. Finally, you may be asking how to make your grass green and the answer is wait until early spring, but you certainly can buy the fertilizer now, when it’s less expensive.
