It’s Finally Here…Winter & Holiday Prep

 In Holiday Decorating, Landscaping, Lawn Care, Lawn Treatment & Fertilization, Lighting, Plant Care, Plantings & Pruning

Recently, the temperature dropped and there has been frost in some areas. The cold has arrived! However, as we know, it fluctuates and some days will be warmer. Now is ideal to clean up and prepare to give your home and landscape a festive look. It is also time to winterize trees and shrubs from the cold, wind, snow and ice. Installing burlap wraps or building a shelter reduces moisture loss, keeps them warm and protects them from the harsh winter winds. Lastly, don’t forget to clean those gutters and plan for final lawn care until the spring. We are available to help with any needs during the holiday season and beyond.

It’s Planting Season for Robust Shrubs & Trees

This is also the month to plant hardy shrubs and trees. They focus energy on building a strong root system, which allows them to be ready to grow in spring, and withstand the summer heat. It’s also easier to dig and not as much water is needed. A few suggestions that will look great throughout winter include conifers, evergreens or hollies.

November Landscape & Lawn Tips

  • Plants, trees, perennials, and hardy shrubs need food while they are still actively growing. Like lawns, fertilizer gives them a boost before going dormant for season.
  • To prevent spring weeds, treat your lawn now.
  • Let our experienced team work with you to recommend the best timing, fertilizer and treatment that meets your needs.

Time for Cool Season Herbs

As the weather gets cooler, don’t let that stop you from thinking about herbs. Sage, Rosemary, Cilantro, Parsley, Fennel, Dill, and Thyme are a few varieties that thrive this time of year. Limited space?  All you need is a sunny spot, containers and a few of your favorite herbs.
