Even the mildest winter can take a toll on the plants, trees and shrubs that surround your property. Low temperatures, harsh winds and heavy rains may damage vegetation to the point where you need to replace it. Fortunately, using these winter landscaping tips can help!
Do Regular Inspections of Your Property
The best way to solve landscaping concerns is to spot them early, while they’re still minor. Take the time to periodically walk around your property and note areas of concern, such as ponding water. Talk to your local landscaper about your observations to make sure you address them in the most effective way possible.
Winter months are often a great time to cut back shrubs because they’re basically dormant. The plants have slowed their biological functions considerably, so pruning is less likely to cause them harm. Instead, pruning them now primes the plants for healthy new growth in the spring. It also keeps plants from looking unkempt and overgrown, interfering with the health of surrounding plants.
Layers of mulch placed in the fall don’t always last all winter long; they can be disturbed by wildlife or blown around by the wind. You may need to add more mid-winter. It’s an important way to help plants survive cold snaps and hold onto moisture by adding a layer of insulation to flower beds, trees and shrubs.
