The Definitive Guide to Seasonal Landscape Maintenance

Landscape maintenance

Did you know that landscaping can boost the resale value of a property by fourteen percent? And that nearly half of home buyers would reduce their offer on a house by twenty percent if it looked unappealing from the outside? It’s clear from these statistics that landscape improvements can greatly benefit a property, bringing with it transformations that turn a drab backyard into something extraordinary. But whether you’ve created a beautiful and colorful arid-looking landscape in Santa Barbara or a lush and thriving wildlife garden, any landscape requires maintenance and upkeep to keep it looking its best throughout the years.

A good program for landscaping maintenance changes with the seasons.  Homeowners may fall into the trap of only tending to their lawns and gardens during the warmer seasons, leaving outside areas to degrade and decay over the winter. This guide can help apply an all-season approach to landscaping to keep properties looking amazing throughout the year. With the right techniques, home landscapes can appear fresher and more vibrant in the spring and summer and, at the very least, a little less dead in the colder months. Combined with a stringent cleaning and maintenance regime for hardscape areas, you can keep the exterior of your property looking beautiful year round.

The infographic below was developed by Mainland Aggregates to give a comprehensive overview of landscape maintenance.  Check out how to care for your yard and garden areas throughout the seasons.  From planting in the spring to scarifying in the winter, there is something to be done every month. Read on to learn the secrets behind a beautiful landscape.
