Get Your Yard Ready for Winter

Winter is just around the corner, and now’s the time to start thinking about how you can prepare your yard for those upcoming cold months. To help you get started, follow these tips to help you get your yard ready in no time.

Give Your Yard a Trim

In order to keep your landscaping healthy and help prevent diseases like blight, it’s important to take some time to trim plants that need trimming. It’s also good for making your plants grow in thicker and healthier next season.

Aerate Your Yard

Aerate your yard before the cold weather hits. This gives it a chance to soak in nutrients that it can store in the soil during winter and also breaks up any dry soil you might have which blocks those nutrients from soaking in.

Condition Your Soil

Once you’ve aerated your yard, give your soil a good conditioning to help your lawn grow in green and lush in the spring. You may also want to spread some fertilizer, which will also aid in proper growth in the spring.

Plant Some Seeds

Many people aren’t aware that they can actually do planting in the fall, but it’s true. You can plant trees and shrubs before the ground gets too cold and give your plants some time to adjust to the soil.

If you’re busy and don’t have time to give your yard the proper landscaping it needs, you may want to consider hiring a professional to get your yard ready for winter.
