We promise, winter IS coming! It might not seem like it now, but colder days will soon be here. Even though it feels like early spring some days, we need to make sure our lawns are prepared for the colder months. Bell Sod and Hydroseed have been in the business for a long time, and we have seen many instances of the consequences of ignoring cold weather landscaping preparations. Here are common landscape areas you should be paying attention to this fall when winterizing your lawn:
Trees and Shrubs
Give your yard a walk through and assess any issues that you might find. This means checking for damaged or dying trees and weak branches. Tackle these issues now so you don’t have to worry about then when icy weather comes. The last thing you want is a frozen tree to fall on your property!
- Help prevent desiccation and water your lawn before the cold weather arrives.
- Adjust your watering and mowing schedule for the dormant season.
- Have you recently planted a tree or shrub? Wrap them up to protect it from the elements.
- Protect plants and trees with exposed roots by adding a layer of mulch at the base
