Hurdle Land and Realty is ready for the Spring Thaw. Here are some quick tips on how to take care of your own land.
With the Polar Vortex leaving ice and frostbite behind, no one is more excited than Hurdle Land & Realty for the Spring thaw. Green grass, vegetables, and prime hunting weather are what make Spring one of our favorite seasons of the year. What is the best way to prepare for Spring so that your land is at its prime by the warmer months- would you believe the best time is now?
- How wet is the ground? Land that’s too wet clumps up and will start to harden into little ball shapes, which are hard to break up later. These clumps can make the ground unpliable during gardening season.
- Don’t compact the soil. When soil is compacted the soil loses the air pockets that plants need to grow and get oxygen.
Remove Litter and Debris
- Make sure you clean up all the litter and debris around your property. The dead, moist leaves that have been covering your yard for weeks are smothering the soil and need to be removed so that the ground can receive the oxygen your property will need to flourish.
- Prune your perennials, trees, and bushes! This is a great time to start trimming the vines that have run away from the plant or that have died. Late winter offers a great opportunity to see where the vines have overgrown so you’re able to cut them. If you wait until Spring you’re more likely to miss one hiding behind the growing plants.
