Prepping Your Landscaping For Winter
Fall is a colorful season filled with pumpkin spice lattes and warm sweaters. Yet, it’s also the season that’s keeping your yard from being decked with snow. Winter is right around the corner, which means now is the best time to ensure your yard is as ready as can be for the colder season. With that in mind, here are a few fall landscaping ideas to ensure your curb appeal stays appealing all season long.
Make sure your walkways are in great condition
Your walkways are your safe-haven during the winter months. With properly placed sidewalk salt, they’re the ice-free paths guiding you from your car to your front door. Unfortunately, the winter weather can have a major impact on your walkways if they’re looking a little worse for wear. Water can get into the cracks in the stone or pavement, expand when frozen, and cause more damage. If you’ve noticed a few cracks here and there in your walkways, it may be worth your while to have them sealed or redone to keep them looking their best.
Give your plants a good mulching
You may be used to spreading mulch during the spring to help your trees and plants recover from the winter months. But it’s also a good idea to mulch your plants during the fall, too. This is because mulch helps to provide an extra boost of nutrients to the roots. It also gives your plants the ability to retain moisture when the winter air gets too dry.
Don’t forget to wrap your shrubs or other plants
To keep your shrubs and other plants, like rose bushes, from dying in the chilly winter conditions, don’t forget to give them the extra warmth they need. Wrap your shrubs and plants in burlap to keep the ice, high winds, and heavy snow from damaging the plants you’ve worked hard to take care of all year.
