The growing season is a prime time for the life in your landscape to grow and glow, but our landscape maintenance experts also know how to prevent unwanted growing, such as weeds. We know how to differentiate weeds from the real plants, so that weeds don’t choke out and overshadow your flowers.

Other problems during the growing season can include increased amount of insects that are bad for your lawn, as well as diseases.

Plan Ahead

Planning ahead is fundamental. A big part of lawn care is simply planning, which means making sure you have all the materials and know the methods that will lead to success. Getting ahead and planning early will have many benefits for your landscape.

If you work with our landscape maintenance team early, we can help to put your landscaping visions on paper. You will also be able to use what you have learned the past year to make sure you plan your routine and spacing for your plants in a way that is optimal for growth.

Tidy Up at the End of the Season

There is a lot of work to be done at the end of the season. You may just want to put it off until the spring, but failing to complete certain tasks sooner rather than later can actually cause harm to your landscape and lawn.

You need to make sure your lawns are clear of leaves. If you compost, raking your leaves will help create fertilizer for the coming season. Additionally, leaving leaves on your lawn can essentially kill your grass by blocking sunlight.

If you leave weeding until spring, you’re going to have many more than you remembered having. Get a head start on that now so that you have less to worry in the crucial springtime.

It’s also important to check for insects and dead spots. If you find any dead spots, now is the time to add grass seed. You may also want to consider adding mulch to your lawn to protect your delicate soil.

Seem like a lot? We can help. Hiring one of our landscape maintenance experts to deal with your lawn care at the end of the season can save you much needed time and energy.

Add Beauty During the Winter

It’s a common misconception that there is nothing you can do to maintain your landscape’s beauty during the winter.

Some plants do, in fact, continue to look great into the colder months, even after they have died off. With these plants, it’s important to continue making them look as healthy as possible by trimming off broken, hanging, and dead-looking branches and adding mulch around the base of the plants.

A great plant for your landscape in the winter is holly, which will brighten up the exterior of your home with its lipstick-red, festive berries. Small evergreen trees will also add a pop of color in your winter landscape.

By working on your winter landscape, you will also be planning ahead. Going into spring, having a healthier landscape will lead to better, longer spring and summer growing seasons.
