While you might not be able to get outside and enjoy your backyard as much as you would like to this winter, now is a great time to start planning any improvements you would like to make this summer. By doing so, you will have a firm idea of what you would like to do to your property as the weather turns warm again. Here are 3 ideas for improving your backyard that will help you start planning now.
1.Research What You Want to Do
Since the advent of Pinterest, planning the yard of your dreams is now right at your fingertips. Search for backyard and landscaping improvement ideas on Pinterest and other home improvement websites like Better Homes and Gardens or HGTV. Another great way to research is to visit your local garden or flower show. In the Philadelphia area, the Philadelphia Flower Show begins on March 5th. Here you can get some great ideas and inspiration on projects you would like to do in the coming spring.
2. Get Ready to Plant Seeds
If you plan on growing your own vegetables and plants now is the time to start planning. Purchase any seed germination kits and equipment you might need, and plan which veggies you would like to plant and which seeds you will purchase. If you are starting a garden from scratch look at your property and look for the location that will be best suited to growing vegetables. Finally, develop a seed starting schedule and identify your last frost date to help you decide when to start your seeds.
