Spring lawn and landscaping tips for a beautiful yard

“For 30 years, the main question I’ve been asked when we’re designing landscapes is, ‘Can I have a low maintenance landscape?’ The answer is ‘yes.’” – Ken Hyatt, Village Green

It’s never too early to start thinking about how to care for your lawn and landscape in preparation for spring. Getting a head start on caring for your grass and plants could mean the difference between a healthy, green lawn and a landscape that is under constant duress from weeds, pests and the elements. 

So what measures can you take to ensure that your lawn is not only properly prepared for the warm weather months, but is on its way to filling out a beautiful landscape that your neighbors will envy?

On this installment of the Angie’s List Experts podcast, Ken Hyatt of Village Green offers his expertise on the subject, sharing tips on how to prepare your yard for spring and how to create a cost-effective, low maintenance landscape.
