Tips for the holiday season

The holidays are a time for family, friends, and good cheer. But they can also be stressful, especially if you’re hosting guests at your home. In addition to all the cooking, cleaning, and decorating you must do, you also have to ensure your home is presentable. That includes your landscaping, which is the first thing your guests will see when they pull up. Here are some tips to help you get your landscaping ready for the holiday season.

get rid of dead leaves and debris

One of the first things you should do is get rid of any dead leaves or debris that might have been collected on your property over the course of the year. Rake them up and dispose of them properly. Not only will this give your property a neater appearance, but it will also help prevent pests from taking up residence in your yard.

trim your trees and shrubs

If you have trees or shrubs on your property, trim them before guests arrive. Overgrown branches can obstruct views and create an overall unkempt look. Plus, branches hanging over your roof provide the perfect walkway for pests to enter your home. A quick trim will do wonders for the appearance of your landscaping and keep it safe from critters.

apply a fresh coat of mulch

Another thing you can do to spruce up your landscaping is apply a fresh mulch coat to flowerbeds and other planting areas. This will give them a neat, finished look and also help prevent weeds from growing.

Preparing your home for the holidays doesn’t have to be daunting. By following these simple tips, you can ensure that your property looks and feels its best when guests come to visit. Happy holidays!
