Spring Season Oxnard CA
During the winter, your garden has stood still for a while. In the spring season, the sun will make the trees and shrubs slowly start forming buds again. With an upcoming growing season in sight, it is wise to prepare your garden well for this with a spring turn. Aeratingyour garden is the biggest task in a spring maintenance because the moss has had a lot of time to grow on your lawn. But there are all kinds of other activities that are also important. A good spring maintenance will ensure that your garden will flourish beautifully again. The most important tasks of a spring maintenance are explained below.
Clean up leaves and thatch
Fertilizing Borders The borders must receive sufficient nutrients, which is why they are fertilized three times a year. Namely, in the spring, summer and fall. Use special spring fertilizer in the spring. This ensures that the plants grow faster and make them stronger. It also makes them less susceptible to diseases. In addition, it helps for the flowering of plants that come later in the season.
Pruning There is not much pruning to be done in the spring, such as in the fall and winter. But shrubs, roses and butterfly bushes must be pruned in the spring. You should also pay attention to ornamental grasses and perennials.
Clean Pavers The ornamental paving often gets a green layer after the winter. It can make the paved parts in your garden slippery. As a result, the landscape might also look less maintained in appeal. You can therefore clean the paving again with for example, a high-pressure cleaner or an algae cleaner. With newly placed ornamental pavers, it is recommended to use an algae cleaner. A high pressure cleaner can damage the top layer. The high-pressure cleaner is a good choice for older decorative paving.
Aeration Old grass, moss and felt are removed. This way the grass can get oxygen again. When you perform aeration, it is important that the roots of the grass plants are cut. Sowing is continued after scarifying. As mentioned earlier, aeration will be the biggest task during a spring session. Here, scarifying is discussed extensively and where you should pay more attention to.
Fertilized Lawn The fertilization is done three times a year, just like fertilizing the borders. Namely, in the spring, summer and fall. Special lawn fertilizer can be used for spring fertilization. It ensures that the lawn closes faster. When maintaining the lawn, the process is always first to scarify, then sow and then fertilize.
Clean Up Sheet There may be quite a few leaves in your garden this fall. It is no problem to ignore this, because it can even be good for your garden. Because it can ensure better soil and increased biodiversity. However, it's useful to keep an eye on it to ensure that no plants get buried and suffocate.

Winter Season Oxnard CA
Opinions about the importance of having a garden prepared for winter are divided. Of course, not all gardens are the same. But it is often the case that there are often frost-sensitive plants in gardens, and they are actually not suitable for a garden. In the nature, these plants are in a different substrate. But in the garden they have less space, making them more susceptible to diseases. For landscaping, you want the lawn to always look clean as a green carpet. That is why garden requirements are often higher than in the natural environment. To ensure that all this is achieved, we will also have to prepare our garden in the fall.
So we prepare a garden for the winter to ensure that everything in the garden can survive the winter. But also to promote growth in the spring and to ensure that the garden will look maintained. It is useful to prepare your garden for winter when the soil is not yet hard or frozen. That's why it's good to start in October and November. There are still enough suitable days to work in the garden.
Activities Preparing a garden for winter is less work compared to a spring maintenance. Yet there are plenty of things that can be done. Such as pruning the faded plants. Have the hedges cut one last time for the winter. Protect the frost-sensitive plants against frost. Raking the blades off the lawn so that the grass can get enough light in order to keep staying green. Mow the grass one last time with a cutting height of 2 inch. The outside tap must also be closed and the garden hose brought inside. All trays, watering cans and pots must be emptied to prevent frost damage. In case of a pond, the dead plants must be removed so that they do not rot. It is useful to move plants in the fall if necessary. And the last step is to plant the spring bulbs for them to bloom nicely in the spring.
