3 Ways to Preserve Commercial Landscaping in Winter

Dormant doesn’t need to mean dull. Winter landscaping can be beautiful, full of texture and interest. There are a few preparations you can do during the winter months that will preserve your landscaping and prepare for a beautiful spring.

Prepare Trees and Shrubs

Bushes and trees need a haircut, and winter is the perfect season to prune them back so they will thrive next spring and summer. Reshaping to ensure the right growth patterns, culling out dead wood and doing corrective pruning can keep your trees and shrubs healthy and looking beautiful. Look for branches that may break with heavy snows and be proactive about pruning those as well. This is also the perfect time of year to have trees removed. Once the trimming and pruning is done, it’s always a good idea to tuck your trees and bushes in for a long winter’s nap with a blanket of mulch. This will help them retain water and moderate the temperature of the soil.

Winterize Lawns

Winterize the lawns one more time by trimming it; the ideal height is between three and three-and-a-half inches. Remove leaves or debris that may smother grass and prevent future growth. Winter is also a good time to aerate, fertilize and overseed, preparing for lush lawns in the spring.

Plant for Spring

Dormant plants are much lower maintenance than those planted during warmer seasons. The cool temperaturesare kind to the new root systems and moisture is usually readily available. This is also the perfect time to plant bulbs that bring a promise of spring, tucking them under a two-inch layer of mulch to keep them warm.
