Marylanders are starting to dust off their gardening gloves and restart their sprinkler systems. The recent spate of warm weather lends itself well to gardening and outdoor projects, but what should homeowners do to maintain their properties in the month of April? Let’s explore some popular maintenance tasks and projects for Maryland homeowners this time of year.
How Home Gardeners Should Flex Their Green Thumbs in April
While it’s tempting to stop, relax, and enjoy the mild weather, home gardeners know that April is a make-or-break time for gardening and landscaping. Early bulbs are already producing bunches of blossoms, and homeowners may take some time to prune spent flowers while leaving bulbs and foliage intact. April is an excellent time to transplant trees and shrubs, and homeowners should start to harden off their transplants for mid-spring planting. If you’re looking to expand your garden, it’s the perfect time to add to it; organic soil from Lehnhoff’s Supply is ideal for in-ground and raised garden beds! April is the time to plant annual seeds and perennial vegetables and divide perennials if they are overgrown.
Common Hardscape Projects for Homeowners
Folks who are itching to spend more time outdoors have plenty of opportunities to do so, and homeowners should take advantage of April’s mild weather to update their hardscapes. Adding crushed stone, gravel, and flagstone is a great way to create visual contrast and incorporate different textures. Retaining walls, planting beds, and rock gardens are some excellent projects for homeowners who want to incorporate natural stone into their landscapes. Lehnhoff’s Supply has a massive inventory of natural stone products to suit any hardscape!
Homeowners Should Prepare Their Outdoor Spaces for Summer
This month, homeowners should consider their plans for the rest of the spring and summer. If laid-back evenings under the stars are on your agenda, a new stone fire pit or patio might be a great project. Likewise, those who plan to entertain guests later in the summer may want to consider installing landscape lighting or additional walkways to keep the flow of the party more accessible.
