Landscaping in the Winter 

  1. DO NOT buy cheap mulch in your garden for the winter. It is a GREAT idea to add mulch to your garden in the winter, however, you must read the ingredients in the mulch, and make sure you are buying good stuff to last through the snow and freeze. Certain mulches that show a “discounted” price, will he harmful to your garden throughout the winter. Key to Landscaping in the Winter!
  2. DO NOT forget to rake the leaves. Don’t leave the leaves. Pick them up, do 1 last mow! Give your grass a chance to breathe in the winter.
  3. DO NOT cut the grass to0 short. Cutting the grass “too short” before the ground freezes.
  4. DO NOT Ignore the bugs. If you were having a bug problem, a spider problem, or worse before the snow falls, do NOT ignore it until spring. They can come back stronger than ever next spring. Key to Landscaping in the Winter!
  5. DO NOT miss out on the deals! After planting and gardening season wraps up, there are TONS of stores that practically give away their garden equipment. DO NOT miss out on the sales, and get garden supplies in the winter, to save in the spring!
  6. DO NOT use weed killer in the winter! Good weed killer should be applied in mild or warm temperatures. Do not use them in cold temps, it will cause more harm than good. Key to Landscaping in the Winter!
  7. Use the RIGHT fertilizer. There are different types of fertilizer that can be used in all 4 seasons. Make sure you purchase the correct one during the cold months. Here is a list of different types to use, if you are applying yourself.
  8. DO NOT forget final manicuring. Aeration should be completed well in advance of the winter freeze so you can give your landscaping a chance to recover before the ground freezes over.
  9. DO NOT forget to water your outdoor plants. If there is no snow or no rain, do not forget to water your plants. They still get thirsty in the winter.
  10.  Start planning for the spring early. It is never to early to start your ideas for planting. Have a plan and the right tools, so once that deep freeze leaves us, your garden season can last longer.

Top dressing is a process of applying compost, soil and sand over the surface of your lawn. It has been preformed on golf courses since the sport was invented in Scotland, but has only recently become popular on home lawns. For the best results on residential lawns, a top dressing should have a higher content of compost.

Good Soil is living soil. One tablespoon of soil can contain billions of microorganisms. This practice is a way of restoring the balance to home lawns, building good soil and increasing soil flora.

Benefits Of Top Dressing

  • Significantly increases soil water retention.
  • Adds organic matter to soils.
  • Compost top dressings with the right biological components can help reduce lawn diseases.
  • Adding compost helps reduce traffic stress.
  • Compost incorporated into sandy soils helps with water retention.
  • Can help reduce thatch.
  • Neutralizes soil’s pH.
  • With core aeration, it helps change soil structure.
