Five Winter Landscaping Maintenance Tasks
To Keep Your Yard Looking Great

Spring, summer, and fall are all busy seasons for landscaping.  But landscapers can often forget that there are things that can be done in the winter to help keep your landscaping looking good through the rest of the year.  Since the winter is a time when trees and plants growth slows down considerably, there is not much trimming that needs to be done.  But, don’t let this slow down your landscape crew!  There is still plenty to do and the winter is a great time to work on special projects.  

  1.  Got erosion problems?  Rock jobs such as swale work can be done in the winter.  And, your landscaper will thank you for not waiting for summertime to accomplish this labor-intensive job.
  2. Perform a thorough inspection of your existing irrigation system.  Extra time not spent on trimming can be used to work on evaluating and repairing your irrigation system.  And, you’ll likely save money on your water bill once all those pesky little leaks are fixed!
  3. Have your major tree trimming done.  The branching of trees can be better seen in the winter when trees have dropped their leaves.  Mistletoe and witches broom are also easier to locate without all the leaves present.  Tree trimmers whose work has slowed down are more likely to give you a better deal, especially when you have multiple trees trimmed.
  4. Make plans now for your spring planting.  Don’t wait until February or March to start thinking about planting.  The best time to plant is in the early spring.  So, have your plan ready in the winter.
  5. Have your landscaper  work on doing detail work that they don’t often have time for during the rest of the year but that makes a difference in how your yard looks.

Enjoy the wonderful Tucson winter weather!

WHAT IS THE FLOWER FOR THE MONTH OF JANUARY?

January Birth Month Flower: The Carnation

The carnation comes in several different colors to convey different meanings, much like roses. A pink carnation means affection, while a red carnation means ‘I love you.’

White carnations mean pure love, striped carnations means regret that a love is not shared, and yellow means rejection or disappointment. (from the Old Farmer’s Almanac).

Character is the ability to carry out a good resolution long after the excitement of the moment has passed.
