Just because it’s wintertime doesn’t mean your yard is obligated to look like a mess. Sure, you have a busy schedule, and all of your beautiful spring blooms have finally expired. But that means you have a new opportunity: the opportunity to winterize your yard so that it looks organized and presentable during the colder months. Here are a few ways a company that offers professional landscaping services in Las Vegas can help you get your property in shape for the holiday season and beyond.
Many plants and shrubs require pruning or tying back in preparation for the cold season. In fact, some plants will not return the next spring if not properly taken care of in the fall. Choose a company with plenty of experience in landscaping services, as they will best know how to prepare your flowerbeds and bushes for winter. They will be able to tell you which plants should be left alone, which might produce seeds or pods to harvest and plant the following spring, and which should be pruned or tied back.
Chances are, you have cool-season turf (grass) in your yard. That means it will greatly benefit from a fall fertilization. In fact, grasses that are cool-season typically grow their strongest in the fall! Your landscaping company can recommend the right winter fertilizer to nourish the roots of your grass (where it stores nutrients for the spring to come) and help it grow back full and healthy next season.
During the summer and fall, a surprising amount of debris can build up in your yard. At first glance, you might not notice much of a difference. But look a little closer and you’ll soon find that you’ve accumulated a solid layer of dirt, twigs, leaves and more. This is only natural; over the course of summer, rain, wind, rodents and other factors come together to add a lot of nonsense to your beds. Luckily, a good landscaping company can take care of this for you in no time. They’ll be able to carefully rake out the offending debris and remove it from your premises, so you don’t have to worry about bagging it up and dragging it to the curb.
Getting rid of old plant matter
Did you know that leaving dead fruit or flower plants in your beds can actually promote the growth of diseases in the soil? Now that you know, you’ll want to make sure all old plant matter is disposed of before winter sets in. Ask your landscaping services company to take a look, and make recommendations about how to handle winterizing fruit and vegetable beds.
If you want to rototill your beds, now is the time to do it. Every good landscaping company knows that it’s possible to overdo it on the rototilling, so they’ll be sure to turn over the soil just enough for good results.
