A Warm Start to January 2023
This winter has been mild, so far. Though there is still the chance for snow and colder temperatures in the coming months. As we wait for the weather to turn, there is still always something that needs to be done for your lawn and property. And, as we are seeing now, a January thaw is not unheard of in the Northeast, allowing you a bit of time to work outside.
Winter Lawn Care
While you are outside, don’t forget to look at the lawn. It’s important not to leave any debris or leaves. They can smother grass and cause disease, as well as invite insects and other pests to cause damage. And you may not know it until early spring when the weather gets warmer. If there are leaves on the lawn, rake or blow them into beds and use as mulch instead of bagging.
Here are a few tips to help keep your lawn healthy:
- Take a rake and drag it over the lawn to break up soil clumps.
- Water the lawn with a garden hose spray, so the soil stays moist and won’t dry out.
Plan for Property Improvements
Prepare now for any changes or additions you would like to make before spring arrives. A stone patio, fire pit, outdoor kitchen or sitting area. Our experienced team can work with you to discuss needs, budget and timing.
Don’t forget…container plantings. They add a pop of color and are great for patios and entrance ways. Annual contracts are also available for four season plantings.
