Winter Pruning

Believe it or not, you can still get some plant work done even when the summer months have long passed by. Pruning on shrubs and trees can help to shape them, while at the same time helping the beds themselves. Landscape beds can benefit quite a bit from careful corrective pruning during the winter. It makes a big difference and the best time to do it is from winter up until the month of March. Taking off dead wood and taking care of clean up can improve plant health and landscape appearance.

Splitting Up and Replanting Perennials

Perennials are often multipliers and if you split them up and plant them again, they can grow some more. If you do this, you can keep them from growing too much and also clean a bed up at the same time. Perennials can be moved to new areas to provide decorative growth. This preserves their health as well. By dividing the plant, it can help preserve how they bloom.

Tree Removal

You may end up deciding that you want to remove trees from the property. The good news is that during the winter, the availability may be up. You may even be able to catch a better deal in the process!

Lawn Aeration and Seeding

It’s a great time to aerate the lawn in winter. Why? Reducing compaction and making space for the grass to breathe in the spring. You can also seed in the areas where turf needs help or bare spots are so that grass will grow later and restore lushness and a verdant color.

Plant Bulbs

Putting bulbs into the ground before it freezes over will mean color in the spring! Pigmentation will take place in the form of tulips and other flowers like daffodils or crocuses. They will always provide a property with that natural beauty that shows up early in the season!
