As fall turns into winter, it’s important to help prepare your DeSoto County landscaping for what’s ahead. Our landscaping team has been helping DeSoto county residents with their winter preparations for over 25 years, so we know the best way to treat your plants and other landscaping to help them come back stronger than ever in the spring. Here are a few of our favorite winterization tips!
Help Your Landscaping Get Ready for Spring Now
Clean up your yard.
Fall is the perfect season to spend a little time cleaning up your yard. Since we spend so much time in the yard during spring and summer, there tends to be a lot
of debris at the end of the season. Your clean-up should include removing dead or dying plants, trimming up trees, and cleaning out your flower beds. You might even want to put away or cover some of your lawn furniture to help shield it from the winter elements. A good cleanup of your yard can prevent it from being damaged from winter weather.
Mulch your garden beds.
Putting down a layer of mulch over your garden beds is a good idea. Even if you mulched in the spring, you’ll want to spread a new layer of mulch over any bare soil in your landscaping. This will help regulate the temperature of the soil. Mulch doesn’t have to be fancy; even a layer of dead leaves will do the trick! Avoid the base of trees and around larger plants so the mulch doesn’t prevent them from getting much-needed moisture.
Make plans for spring.
Fall is a great time to plant those spring bulbs, too. Get this important task done before the ground freezes. You can also start planning the rest of your spring garden with the help of seed catalogs, thinking about the edible gardens or new plant varieties that you’d like to try. It’s a great way to fend off the winter blues, too, when you can’t get out in the garden.
