While life in Alberta seems to be slowly becoming more normal, there are a few restrictions (like social distancing) that aren’t going to be going anywhere until we have a vaccine. Calgarians are smart people, so as businesses begin to reopen, we’re still going to spend much of our time at home instead of frequenting restaurants and theatres as we once did. But with the warm sun overhead and blue skies stretching to the mountains, staying at home doesn’t mean staying in the home, which is probably why so many Calgarians have been asking if they can still have their yard landscaped this year. The answer? A big YES!
The last nights of frost are likely behind us. The soil has thawed and the grass is green once more. If you haven’t already booked a spring cleaning for your yard, now is the perfect time. Over winter, garbage seems to magically appear; decaying leaves have gotten mixed up into your lawn grass, and your yard has become a sort of dishevelled headache you don’t want to deal with. Spring cleaning is an important step in ensuring you have a yard you enjoy spending time in. With beaches and national parks closed, it’s going to be necessary for Canadians’ mental health to spend as much time as possible outdoors in our own yards. Having your property professionally spring-cleaned is the first step.
One trend we’re excited to see is that many Calgarians are taking this time of family-isolation as an opportunity to do more gardening and spend more time in their yards. Living and working outdoors is incredibly good for your mental and physical health, so we can’t overstate how happy we are to see Calgarians taking the initiative to spend time outside during these challenging days. But while you may have plenty of time to mow the lawn and garden now, there are some things, like aeration, that you just won’t have the equipment to do yourself. That’s okay! Five Star Landscaping is open, and we’re here to help Calgarians with all of their landscaping needs.
If your lawn is compacted or otherwise could use the boost that aeration provides, then give us a call to schedule your yard! Our experienced Calgary landscapers will be by in no time to aerate your lawn, and we can promise that aeration is a social distancing-approved process!
Many Canadians are feeling like their life is suddenly on pause. Spring may have arrived and summer will be coming soon, but the human-world seems to have stopped despite the natural world moving forward without us. We aren’t making plans for our summer vacations nor do we know what summer will even look like. One way to relieve this stuck feeling is to make visible progress on the projects that are important to you.
Many Calgary homeowners have dreamed about landscaping their yard, and this year may be the perfect year to do it. Until a vaccine is released — which will likely not be until the fall of 2021— we’ll all be living isolated in our own homes. That means a long summer this year and next year and that you’ll be spending most of your outdoor time in your own yard — so you might as well enjoy it! By working with the Calgary landscapers at Five Star, you can craft the backyard oasis that you’ve always dreamed of.
In all likelihood, the next two summers will likely be spent largely at home. The world may be reopening slowly, but until there is a safe and effective vaccine, it’ll be important for Calgarians to continue staying at home as much as possible to protect our communities. Knowing that, why not make your yard a place that you love spending time in? Work with the professional Calgary landscapers at Five Star to design and actualize the yard you’ve always wanted.
