Winter Storm Recovery

Winter storms can take a toll on your yard, leaving it barren and brown. But with the arrival of spring, it’s time to give your yard a makeover and bring it back to life. Native Edge Landscape is here to help you recover your yard from the ravages of winter and create a beautiful and sustainable outdoor space.

  • The first step in recovery is to assess the damage. Look for any broken branches or fallen trees, and remove any debris from the yard. This will also help you determine which areas of the yard need the most attention.
  • Once you have a clear understanding of the damage, it’s time to start planting. Spring is the perfect time to add new plants and flowers to your yard. Choose drought-tolerant and native species that are well-suited to your area. These plants will be better able to withstand the challenges of your climate and help you create a sustainable landscape.
  • If your lawn has suffered from winter storms, it’s also a good time to start overseeding. This process involves adding grass seed to an existing lawn to help fill in bare patches and create a fuller, healthier lawn. Be sure to use a grass seed blend that is appropriate for your climate and soil type.
  • For soil health, we use many enriching products. Bio-inoculants for stronger roots and fighting off bad bacteria, resulting in less need of chemical fertilizers and pesticides,humates that enhance the availability of nutrients and water retention in the soil and stimulate root development, soil activators to help improve the health and fertility of the soil and aid in balancing the pH, and growth stimulants to help aid in root strength and development, as well as overall plant health and de-stressing. Do it yourself with products from our sister company, Garden Seventeen.
  • Mulching is another important step in recovery. Spread a layer of mulch around your plants and trees to help retain moisture and suppress weed growth. This will also help your plants to retain their moisture during hot summer months and promote healthy root growth.
  • Another important aspect of yard recovery is irrigation. Ensure that your irrigation system is working properly, and adjust it as needed to provide the right amount of water for your plants and lawn. Consider installing a rain sensor to conserve water and reduce the risk of over-watering.
  • Finally, don’t forget about the hardscaping elements of your yard. Check your sidewalks, patios, and retaining walls for any damage, and make repairs as needed. This will help to ensure that your outdoor spaces are safe and functional for the coming year.

With these steps, you can recover your yard from winter storms and create a beautiful and sustainable outdoor space. Contact Native Edge Landscape for more information on how we can help you recover your yard and create a landscape that you can enjoy for years to come.
