New Year – New Landscaping

View this email in your browser New Year – New Landscaping The New year is a time to start fresh.  Whether it’s improving your health, your finances, or your landscaping, there are always ways to make things better. Some improvements that make a difference can be small. And, some can be really big. When it comes to your landscaping, there are lots of ways to make it better.  For a new landscape start with a plan. Rather than randomly adding plants consider what you’d like your outdoor space to look like and how you will use it.  Starting with a design can help you envision the finished project and changes made on paper won’t cost you the time and money installing and removing bad choices will cost you in your yard. Want to freshen up your garden or landscape? If you have an existing landscape or garden, you can make it more exciting and colorful by strategically adding and/or removing plants and trees.  This is less costly than starting over. And, you have the advantage of having mature plants that will give your landscape a finished look from the start. Is your landscaping looking a little drab?

Winter Landscaping Tasks

  Winter landscaping work that makes a difference. View this email in your browser 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.    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. 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! 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. Make plans now for your spring planting.  Don’t wait until February or March to start thinking about planting.  The best time...
