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 has been in the business for a long time, and we have seen many instances of the consequences of ignoring cold weather landscaping preparations. Here is what you should be paying attention to!
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 it won’t be a headache later with icy weather.
- 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
