We are in the midst of summer now and you just walked outside and realized your yard is an absolute disaster. Yeah we have all been there. Time gets away from us and the last thing that we think about is the yard. Sometimes taking care of the yard can feel like an overwhelming tasks.
So you procrastinate and procrastinate and then before you know it you have knee high grass or bushes bigger than your house. The reality is that like most things in life by procrastinating and not taking care of it you will just make it harder on yourself. So don’t wait any longer to get the yard under control.
Ok so you are now thinking, I can do this. Then you look at the yard again and your like I don’t even know where to begin. Do not fret you can tackle this monstrosity. So where should you start, what needs to be done first?
Simply mowing the grass on a weekly basis is the single best thing and fastest way to get your yard under control. Either hire someone or schedule time for you to do it yourself. YOU HAVE TO MOW THE GRASS!!! It is not going to cut itself. When you mow you have to trim every time. I know it’s not fun sometimes, but by simply trimming you have just made your yard look amazing.
You got the yard mowed now you have to start tackling the garden beds and other wild messes that may be in your yard. I would suggest starting with the smallest bed or section and work your way up. The clean up stage consist of getting rid of the weeds, debris, and dead plants. You will also need to trim the bushes. If you don’t know how to do this I would suggest hiring a professional or taking the time to learn. This part of the game is going to take a lot more initial time, but if you do a 30 min weekly check thereafter it will stay awesome!
