Loving Your Little Landscape

I have never been a natural gardener. For years, I struggled to keep basic houseplants alive, only to kill them at the first opportunity. It was difficult and stressful to buy a home with a yard, but I knew that I might be able to learn what I was doing wrong and correct the problem. To start off, I focused heavily on the lawn, and tried hard to keep it trimmed and well-maintained. Next, I cleaned up the flowerbeds. It was a lot of work, but I knew that it would pay off in the end. When I was done, my front yard was gorgeous, and guess what--it even stayed alive. This blog is all about loving your little landscape.

Winter Is Almost Here: 4 Reasons To Keep Your Landscaping Service

by Charlotte White

Winter is almost here. With the weather changes, you might not think you'll need your landscaping service. A lot of people cancel their landscaping contracts as soon as winter arrives. If you plan to do that, it's time to change your plans. You might not realize it, but landscapers can provide an abundance of services during the winter. Read the list below. Here are four services a landscaper can provide you with during the winter months. 

Winterize Your Landscaping

Now that winter is coming, it's time to get your plants and lawn ready for cold weather. That's where your landscape service comes into the picture. Your landscape service can winterize your landscaping. That includes applying cold-weather fertilizer to your lawn and plants. But, it also includes placing protective ground covering around the base of your trees. A landscaping service can also prune your trees and roses before winter arrives. This ensures that your gardens are protected throughout the winter. 

Residential Snow Removal

If you live in an area that gets snow during the winter, it's time to plan for snow removal. You have two choices. You can shovel the snow by yourself, or you can hire a snow removal service. If you work with a landscaping service, you already have access to a quality snow removal service. In fact, many landscapers offer snow removal services during the winter months. That means your landscaper can keep your driveway and sidewalks clear of snow and ice. And, when spring arrives, they can get right to getting your yard ready for warm weather.  

Holiday Lawn Displays

If you like to decorate your yard for the holidays, but you don't like the hard work, it's time to talk to a landscaping service. You might not know it, but landscaping services can turn into your decorating service during the winter. Landscaping services can hang holiday lights, install rooftop decorations, and take care of other lawn displays for you. When the holidays are over, your landscape service will take the displays down for you. That way, you can enjoy the decorations without the struggle.  

Greenhouse Services

If you have a greenhouse, you know that it requires year-round care. Unfortunately, you don't always have time to dedicate to greenhouse care. That's especially true during the winter. That's where a landscaping service becomes beneficial. A landscaping service can take care of all your greenhouse care. That includes fertilizer and pruning services. Your landscaping service can also help you get your starter plants ready for spring.
