We’ve heard of spring cleaning. However, before spring comes, we need to consider what to do in winter, which means you should winterize your lawn.

If you want that beautiful, luscious green lawn of your dreams once spring comes along, doing your part during the colder months of winter is going to make all the difference. It’s not hard to set yourself up for success if you winterize your lawn.

Check out some of our tips on how to winterize your lawn in 2021!

Mow Lower Than Usual

You want your grass to preserve as much energy as possible during the winter. It’s not going to get nearly as many nutrients as it does during the spring and summer, so setting your lawnmower to a shorter setting is going to make a big difference come spring.

So when you’re getting ready for that final mow of the year, be sure to adjust the height setting and prepare yourself for success over the course of winter.

Consider Aerating Your Lawn

Typically done during the fall, aerating your lawn is a surefire way to set your grass up for success once spring comes along. You’ll find that your lawn will grow thick and healthy. Not only will it look fantastic, but an aerating lawn in the fall means a lawn free of weeds in the spring. Thick, healthy grass leaves no room for those pesky weeds to poke their way through, another major plus.

Often, overseeding your lawn goes hand in hand with aeration. Overseeding makes it easier for your lawn to get the nutrients it needs to thrive, and when these two are done together, it will do amazing things for your lawn come spring.

Fertilize, Fertilize, Fertilize

After you mow your lawn for the last time during the year (at that lower setting like we mentioned earlier!), you will want to be sure to fertilize. The nutrients will be stored in the roots of your grass so that when spring comes along, it’ll be ready to thrive and become green and beautiful again. In fact, fertilizing your grass in the fall may even make it so that your grass can grow sooner, another added plus.

However, you’ll want to be mindful to not over-fertilize your lawn. This will cause something called fertilizer burn. This is where the nitrogen and salt levels in your grass go way too high, damaging your grass and bringing on a yellow tint. It’s the exact opposite effect of what you’re looking for when fertilizing, so be mindful to not go over the top with this project!

Whether you own a residential complex, a commercial space, or a homeowner’s association, you will need commercial landscape service. But how do you budget for it? What factors do you take into account when considering an investment in landscaping?

Why Landscape Service Is Important For Any Business

As a commercial or retail property owner, you need to make a good impression in order to attract customers. And landscaping matters. You’ve all seen that run-down shopping plaza with weedy flowerbeds and a browning lawn due to the latest drought. Your potential customers will drive on by, looking for a better place to shop. Poor maintenance on the outside suggests that the businesses within will lack attention to important details when making any sort of sale or business transaction. As human beings, we simply feel better about well-maintained landscaping and trust individuals and businesses that take care of their surroundings.

Nicely landscaped properties show possible customers or tenants that the owners of that property care about it. If you are a landlord trying to attract new retail tenants or a homeowner’s association trying to entice people to live in your neighborhood, you need to make a positive first impression. Fortunately, excellent commercial landscape service is a relatively inexpensive way to attract new tenants and businesses.

Consider All Possible Landscaping Expenses

Many commercial property owners just think about the basics when planning a budget for landscaping. They plan for the cost of mowing and trimming and some basic flower bed design, but what about cleaning up after spring and summer storms? What about changing up the flowerbed designs to take advantage of different types of colors and blooming schedules? What about irrigation maintenance, pest control, lawn aeration, and removing dead trees and bushes? It is important to consider all landscaping tasks when planning your commercial landscaping budget, including a budget for snow and ice removal services in the winter months.

Focus on Highly Visible Areas

Most of your landscaping budget should focus on highly visible or high traffic areas such as the following:

In order for your grass to properly grow, it needs water, which is why understanding proper sprinkler maintenance is so important.

Sure, there are some fancy techniques that can be applied, products that claim to work wonders, and who could forget those fancy patterns that people create when they’re mowing their lawn? None of these come close to simply watering your yard. It really comes down to the small and simple things. 

So what are the basics of sprinkler maintenance? What are the things you should be keeping an eye out for with your sprinkler system? Check out some of our major points to consider when addressing sprinkler maintenance.

Clean Those Sprinkler Heads

The sprinkler heads are one of the most important parts of your sprinkler system because this is the part that gets that much-needed water onto your grass. However, with it also being one of the parts that’s closest to the grass and everything that comes with it, they can also get dirtier more easily.

Make a schedule for yourself to routinely check your sprinkler heads and clear them out of any dirt, mud, and anything else that might be clogging it up. We recommend doing this on an annual basis.

Stay on Top of Faulty Pipes

You probably don’t think much about your pipes until they’re broken. When they’re working, it’s great. However, once you find yourself facing a leaky pipe (maybe you got a little too close with the garden shovel) or even just normal wear and tear, it’s something you’ll want to take care of right away.

This will keep water from getting to your grass, so it’s important that you take care of it in a timely fashion. Refer to your manufacturer guide to get more details on what the repair is going to look like.

Mend Faulty Wires

The wiring is what directs your sprinkler system on what to do when, and when this stops working, you’re going to notice. Unless you want to manually water your lawn with a hose, we recommend addressing issues with faulty wiring right away.

Use Waterproof Connectors

Water and electricity do not go together, so in order to ensure safety for yourself and for your family, it’s wise to go with waterproof connectors for your sprinkler system. This will ensure that everything is working the way it’s supposed to, and that anything electric is kept safe from potential moisture.

This is an easy way to ensure your sprinkler maintenance is properly taken care of, so if you don’t currently have waterproof connectors, make it a priority to make the switch.

If your property has even just one tree, you know that keeping that tree thriving is a must. And that’s where deep root fertilization comes in.

Think about it! Whether you have a dozen trees on your property or one that stands alone and makes a statement, you want it to look beautiful. And if those trees start dying, it’s going to stand out.

Deep root fertilization is a great way to get dying trees back to their previous luster. However, many homeowners try to do the process on their own, which can do more harm than good. 

In this post, we’ll cover deep root fertilization, how to tell when you need it, and why you should leave it to the professionals.

What Is Deep Root Fertilization?

Deep root fertilization is a special kind of fertilization method used for trees that are starting to show signs of death, or are struggling to properly thrive. The fertilizer is injected into the soil, giving the tree a huge dose of nutrients and coaxing it back to where it was before. If you catch your trees at the right time, this can be a serious lifesaver.

How to Tell When You Need Deep Root Fertilization

So how do you know if your trees need deep root fertilization? One indicator is if they aren’t showing annual growth. If you live in an area with harsh winters, this can really do a number on your trees, and they might need an extra boost to get going again.

Another indicator is if they’re showing signs of death. This could be unseasonably yellow and brown leaves, brittle branches, and overall bad growth.

Leaving it to the Professionals

Ok, so you’ve assessed your trees, and it looks like they’re in need of some deep root fertilization. Time to go and get the supplies and get going on your weekend project, right?

Well, let’s take a step back and look at this.

As mentioned earlier, this is a special fertilization process where you inject fertilizer into the soil around your trees. It requires special machinery and the know-how of how much fertilizer to apply, exactly where it needs to go, and how to apply it.

There is a lot of precision and exactness that goes into deep root fertilization, and leaving it to the professionals is going to be the best route to go. You’ll save time, money, and stress in the process.
