The Commercial Landscape Spring Cleaning Checklist

The Commercial Landscape Spring Cleaning Checklist - Blog - Brilar - landscape_flowers

As spring arrives, it is a great time to focus on the appearance of your commercial property. After winter wreaked havoc and buried your grounds in snow, it is finally time to focus on cleanup and renewal. The professionals here at Brilar can brighten up your grounds and prepare it for growing season with the following tasks.   

Removal of all Leaves and Debris

In the fall and winter, trees drop their leaves. Throughout the winter, it may not feel efficient to try to clean up the debris, but it is crucial come spring. Spring cleanup can start with removing all sticks, leaves, pine cones, and more from the landscape. This includes accumulations on hard surfaces, in gutters, and throughout the grounds.

Inspecting for Snow Mold

Cold-weather fungi are responsible for what is known as “snow mold”. As the temperatures warm, you may begin to see gray circles popping up all over your lawn. When your lawn is covered with snow, mold can begin to form beneath the blanket.

The damage only appears when the snow melts and the spring weather appears. If we spot snow mold, we will take measures to increase circulation of air to decrease the long-term effects of this mold on your landscaping.

Cutting the Perennials

Perennials are plants that live for more than two years. In early spring, we can cut back these plants. If there is any debris, we can have it hauled away so that you can focus on landscape improvements.

Picking the Annuals

Let us take the guesswork out of creating an attractive and well-performing bed.  With the help of field trial data, we can point you to the annuals that will give you maximum performance with less maintenance. 

Applying Fertilizer

Spring is a time for new growth. If you want your plants and trees to remain healthy, then we recommend and can help with, applying fertilizer to the soil to promote fertility and health.
