Spring is nearly upon us and the great outdoors is calling. And the outdoors of your home is calling for spring yard preparation and care.
Homeowners and renters across America are looking forward to another season of baseball, picnics, Easter egg hunts, and the like. But they've got to get their yards in shape for spring first.
Tis the Season for Weeding, Seeding, and Feeding
Of course, not every homeowner or residential tenant has a lawn or, in some cases, even a yard. And we all know that not everyone really looks forward to having to deal with the lawn again each spring.
Between dandelions, crabgrass, ragweed and all the other common lawn grass pests, applying some TLC to one's front and back yards is often a major undertaking. However, it be safely said that almost everyone with lawns loves having a lush, green, and healthy one!
And where one lives in the United States has much to do with both the type of yards one has and the steps required to prep and maintain them.
But the vast majority of homes around the country share most of the same type of typical lawn care needs and requirements, and other than places like the Southwest states or perhaps in the higher reaches of the Rockies or the Sierra Nevada, lawns are largely much the same.
And there are certain tasks and steps that are commonly carried out by conscientious homeowners and others - whether that's done enthusiastically or a bit grudgingly.
When Spring is in the Air and Daffodils Appear
Sure, not everyone gets the daffodils. Or even crocuses. But every region in the country has their own signals that spring is arriving.
As the folks at The Spruce describe it,
The exact timing of lawn care tasks depends upon the climate in your region. If you get snow in your area, start when you are confident the snow has stopped. Or, start your yard work when the local forsythia plants begin blooming or lilac bushes begin to flower.
We've combed the Internet and have put together a brief tip sheet to help guide your own spring yard prep efforts along with sound advice for dealing with the inevitable yard waste removal chores that come along with yard maintenance and cleanup.

Depending on the size of your outdoor spaces and the types of plants and greenery you have, the piles of debris and yard waste can get overwhelming. For those who are not composting, this means figuring out the best way to remove and dispose of all the "green" rubbish and other waste materials.
And then there's all the organic debris, yard waste, and assorted trash and junk that accumulates in the course of any new landscaping efforts you decide to do. All that "stuff" has to be hauled away and disposed of.
If it doesn't fit in your residential trash and recycling bins, what do you do with it?
Successful Spring Yard Prep Requires All-Year Maintenance and Upkeep
Once spring has come and begins to glide easily into the early summer months, homeowners and tenants both know that the work never really ends.
In addition to mowing, watering, and occasional feedings, lawns almost everywhere have a stubborn tendency to sprout other things besides lawn grass. Which is why tactics for keeping spring weeds at bay are critical for maintaining that lovely lawn you worked so hard on at the start of spring.
So, what is a yard guardian to do?
According to The Spruce,
Dandelions are cheerful yellow flowers that are also stubborn perennial growers, first making their appearance in the spring. To get rid of this weed, snap off their flower stems before they produce seeds. Or, if you are more ambitious, dig them out by the roots using a tool that will extract the entire root and keep it from resprouting. A variety of weed-popper tools are available that do a good job.
But staying on top of the seasonal lawn maintenance tasks, especially your spring yard prep and regular yard waste removal will ensure that you have a wonderful outdoor space to enjoy all year long.
