Spring is around the corner, which means your garden in South Florida may need to be prepared for the warmer weather. Preparing for spring is an important part of your yard maintenance, and setting your garden up for success is easier than you may think. Here are a few tips to keep in mind:
Transplant Plants That Aren’t Flourishing
Many times, you plant certain flowers, trees or plants in a seemingly perfect spot, but something outside of your control leads it to become a problem. Even experienced gardeners make mistakes such as planting too close to the property line. The start of spring is a great time to transplant plants to a new area because the cooler weather allows the roots to easily transition to their new spot.
Be Cautious With Pruning
Certain plants, such as hydrangeas, should not be pruned in the spring as you run the risk of cutting out the season’s blooms. Research the pruning guidelines for the plants and flowers that you have to make sure you are not over-pruning this season.
Address Problem Areas
If you struggle to get plants to grow in shady areas or have patches of erosion, now is the time to make a more sustainable plan. Hire a landscaper to advise you on potential solutions so that you can implement changes before the heat of summer strikes.
