BLOG Seasonal Splendor: Year-Round Landscape Maintenance Tips from Green Turf Jun 19, 2024

As the seasons change, so do the needs of your landscape. At Green Turf Landscaping, we understand the importance of year-round maintenance to keep your outdoor space looking its best. In this blog post, we will provide you with some essential tips for maintaining your landscape throughout the year. Whether it's spring, summer, fall, or winter, there are specific tasks you can do to ensure your property remains a seasonal splendor.

Spring: 1. Clean Up: Start the season by removing any debris, fallen leaves, and branches from your yard. This will allow new growth to emerge unimpeded. 2. Pruning: Trim back any shrubs or trees that may have overgrown during the winter months. This will help promote healthy growth and maintain the shape of your plants. 3. Mulching: Apply a fresh layer of mulch to your flower beds and around trees to help retain moisture and control weeds.

Summer: 1. Watering: Make sure to water your plants regularly, especially during hot summer months. Deep, infrequent watering is ideal to encourage deep root growth. 2. Fertilizing: Feed your plants with a balanced fertilizer to promote healthy growth and vibrant blooms. 3. Pest Control: Keep an eye out for pests and treat any infestations promptly to prevent damage to your plants.

Fall: 1. Raking: As the leaves begin to fall, be sure to rake them up to prevent them from smothering your lawn. 2. Planting: Fall is a great time to plant new trees, shrubs, and bulbs. The cooler temperatures allow for better root development. 3. Aeration: Consider aerating your lawn to improve soil compaction and promote healthy grass growth.

Winter: 1. Protect: Cover sensitive plants with burlap or protective wrap to shield them from harsh winter weather. 2. Snow Removal: Keep driveways and walkways clear of snow and ice to prevent accidents and ensure safe passage. 3. Planning: Use the winter months to plan for next year's landscape projects and design updates.
