Maintaining the front lawn
A well-maintained lawn creates an appealing impression to anyone who sees it. In some cases, the state of your lawn can be affected by temperature and climatic changes. For example, where snow is common, it is important to use fertilizer to maintain your lawn after the snow melts. In addition, repairing the dead patches, and treating any problematic crabgrass with the appropriate herbicide can give your lawn a great shape. Aerating and dethatching is another way to revive weak lawns.

Trees create a beautiful home if they are well taken care of. It is advisable to have your trees protected during winter using truck protection, and mulches to prevent moisture loss. Be sure to re-mulch the base of the trees, and prune any diseased, broken, or dead branches. Take care of the ground covers by grooming them constantly through raking and addition of fertilizers. Also ensure that all the trees are watered regularly.
Taking care of your garden
Your garden needs a lot of attention to give it the shape it deserves. Start by enriching the soil using organic matter which is a potent, natural source of important nutrients. It is advisable to plant cool-season vegetables as well as flowers. Ensure that the plants have fresh mulches whenever needed and make room for overcrowded perennials. All your fruit trees and bushes should have constant access to water and fertilizer.
Maintaining a swimming pool
A poorly maintained swimming pool can be a source of health problems. After moving to your new home, it is advisable to check whether there is any debris in the pool and have them removed. Also check if there are algae growing in the pool. If you have a green pool, it’s time to have the filter cleaned. Since there will be chemicals used, it is advisable to have the professionals come in and take care of this.

This calls for effective approaches in landscaping and maintenance.
