After a long winter, spring is finally here to clear away those last remnants of snow and bring in the blossoms. Unfortunately, it’s not so simple. Nutri-Lawn Burlington knows that it takes work to transform your lawn from the barren winter landscape that it becomes from October to March into the gorgeous, verdant oasis that you want it to be in the spring and summer.
One of the most important things to include in your spring landscape maintenance is a great drainage system. Use your Nutri-Lawn lawn care services to redirect the excess water away from your grass and gardens. Read on to find out how you can use your Nutri-Lawn Burlington lawn care services to drain your lawn properly, and avoid the consequences of too much water.
Spread the mounds
Your first enemy from the spring thaw is the excess of snow surrounding the lawn. In order to combat this foe, spread the snow! These piles can bring about mould, disease, and inevitably dead grass if the piles aren’t spread out. Though these can be combated later with your Nutri-Lawn lawn care services, it’s better to avoid the hassles if you can.
Use some of the time spent on your spring landscape maintenance to spread the snow, and if you can, push it closer to the road. This will allow most of the run off to go in your street gutter, rather than drown your lawn.
Dig some trenches
One of the most common lawn renovations for spring landscape maintenance is the trench. Digging a few trenches can help you direct excess or poling water to areas that need it away from those that don’t
Two basic trenches that you’ll find popular are the French drains and downspout drains. These are great for feeding the extra water to your gardens to revitalize them after winter.
Level your lawn
The last thing you want to deal with in your Burlington landscape services is the melted snow drifting towards your home’s foundation. Make sure your lawn is properly leveled so that the water flows to the street instead. Any lawns that slope towards your home are improperly leveled lawns. Nutri-Lawn Burlington can help you readjust your lawn in a way that will better handle the flood.
Water harvesting is key
Water harvesting allows you to conserve water, and to shift the flood from your lawn. One great conservation option that Nutri-Lawn Burlington recommends is to use rain barrels. Rains barrels can be placed in major flood areas around your lawn to collect water as the rainy season begins. These are areas under gazebos, eaves, etc. You can then use the water to feed your lawn or garden, therefore effectively doubling its role in your Burlington landscape services as anti-flood initiative and irrigation system.

Clear everything out
A clogged drain won’t be able to fulfill its functions. Take a wander through your yard and clear out the drains, trenches, eaves, and gutters to make sure none of these are backed up. And make sure to keep up on this de-clogging routine. Maintenance is key!
