Don't Let Old Man Winter Damage Your Lawn and Landscape.
Many of us don't think about our lawn and landscape over the winter months, but what we do outside now can have a big effect in the spring. Be sure to remove all leaves from your lawn during the fall. Any leaves that stay on your lawn could smother the grass and create bare spots in the spring. Late fall is also a great time for one last fertilizer treatment before the cold winter months. This will promote green-up earlier in the spring and could help the turf survive winter injury. As always using the correct fertilizer is essential for fall feeding.
Another part of our landscape that homeowners tend to overlook in the fall and winter is mulch. Sometimes mulch will be carried away as part of a leaf removal process and adding a thin layer in the fall will provide a clean fresh look for the landscape. Also, mulching around perennials and landscape shrubs in the late fall and early winter can help protect the plant from winter root damage. If the mulch around your plants in thin or has been worn away by summer rain and the elements then a winter mulch application may be needed to insure your plant health.
Lastly, if you are considering a lawn care service for your home then now is a good time to get estimates and plan your spring schedule. Many fertilizer applications need to be done very early in the spring and spring over seeding needs to be done early for it to be effective. Fall is also a great time for soil testing. A full lab test can be done in the "off season" and give you all the information you need to properly care for your lawn in the spring.
As always, estimates are free so call today to schedule a time for us to come out and inspect your lawn. Please contact us for more information on our products and services and help us do our part to protect the environment.
