Before starting the hard work of moving things around and cleaning, take time to walk through your backyard.

Spring is a beautiful season, and all the changes in the landscape with trees and plants growing and changing leaf might cause to clog up and create water blockages. The obstruction of drains and gutters can increase the chances of moistening damages. Make sure to clear out all drains and gutters to avoid the headache of drainage or even worst moisture issues.

Cleaning the Backyard

With all the heavy inspections and repairs ready to be done and fixed, it is time to tackle the cleaning of your backyard. Start pulling up all the leaf, and any weeds that have sprouted. It is also a good time to make some holes in the soil to aerate and help the grass and your plants to absorb the water and all nutrients. If your grass is irregular, add topsoil and grass seed to help to grow up in good shape.
