Tis’ the season for still warm weather…which might be the case for now but soon enough it will get chilly in the south so making sure your landscape is ready for it is very important! Get a jump on your lawncare cold weather landscaping prep so you can focus on the most important thing – hot cocoa!
Start With Winterizing Trees and Shrubs
Getting your landscape ready for winter can be as easy but make sure you are prepped. Give your landscape a walk around and address any broken tree limbs, weak branches, damaged or dying trees and scrubs. If these are addressed before and snow and ice hits, they can be a headache later if they fall or break.
Here are a few ways to prep your landscape for cool weather:
- Hydrating your landscape before winter is crucial. This will help prevent desiccation.
- Make sure your watering and mowing schedule is adjusted for the cooler months.
- Wrap new trees and scrubs with covers
- Protect plants and trees with exposed roots by adding a layer of mulch at the base
