Winter Home Landscaping Tips

home landscaping rossville root's nurseriesEven though it’s winter, there are still a few important things to do to care for home landscaping in Landisville. For example, did you know it’s important to keep heavy items off of your grass during the winter months? Read on for more tips on how to maintain and care for your home landscaping this winter.

As mentioned, be sure to keep heavy items like trash cans, sleds and toys off of your yard during the winter months. These items can flatten the grass and either cause your grass to grow in horizontally or not grow at all in the spring time.

If your trees need to be pruned, you should make sure it is done during the cooler dormant season. A professional home landscaping company can take care of this for you since it takes a steady and knowledgeable hand to accomplish this correctly and safely. If you prune your trees now, you will help encourage new growth during the warmer spring and summer months.

Along the same lines, if you haven’t done it already, now is the time to “dead head” your perennials. This means you trim off the old and dead growth to make way for the new growth for the upcoming spring months. If you are unsure of how to do this part of your home landscaping tasks, visit us and let us know. We will be happy to answer your questions and show you how to do it yourself.
