The temperatures outside are indicating that we are creeping closer and closer to the winter months! It’s important this time of year to ensure that as we grow ever-closer to the dormant months, that our lawns are prepared. Simply Green Lawn Care has been in the business for a long time, and we have seen many instances of the consequences of ignoring cold weather landscaping preparations. Here is what you should be paying attention to this year to keep your lawn and landscape protected and healthy!
Trees and Shrubs
Give your yard a walk through and assess any issues that you might find. This means checking for damaged or dying trees and weak branches. Tackle these issues now so it won’t be a headache later with icy weather.
- Help prevent desiccation and water your lawn before the cold weather arrives.
- Adjust your watering and mowing schedule for the dormant season.
- Have you recently planted a tree or shrub? Wrap them up to protect it from the elements.
- Protect plants and trees with exposed roots by adding a layer of mulch at the base
