Taking Care of Your Landscape after a Storm

Lawn Care AerationAfter a storm comes through, you find yourself dealing with a lot of cleanup. Here are some tips to help you get your lawn back into shape:

  • Wash Everything Off – Is there a lot of mud and debris on your plants and around your property? You’ll likely want to wash everything off after the storm. Take some time to rinse plants that have been coated in mud or covered with other debris. This task is particularly vital if you have had any flooding that involves salt water, as salt has chemical properties that can damage everything from plants to steel and even concrete.
  • Remove the Damage – Now that you’ve cleaned everything off, you should take the time to remove any damage. Prune your plants and trees, haul away limbs, and get rid of any other growth that may be in the way now that the storm is over.
  • Be Mindful of Bacteria –While working in your yard, it’s important to remember that you should avoid storm water.  It is full of bacteria and can be very harmful to you.  You should also avoid drinking any water and be especially careful if you have any open wounds.
