January Landscaping January is one of the coldest months of the year and landscaping is not always top of mind. However, there is much that can be done during this cold winter time to prepare for spring and a productive growing season. Pugh's Earthworks understands this and focuses on the things that help to keep them a top performing landscaping firm. This knowledge comes from being in the industry for over 25 years and the continual learning through landscape certification programs and trade publications. Some of the important landscaping actions to take in January are below: Tool Maintenance - Sharp blades on mowing equipment is key to a more beautiful and healthy lawn. The Pugh's Earthworks landscaping technicians work on the mowers to make sure blades are sharpened or replaced if needed. In addition, time is spent making sure all landscaping tools are cleaned and lubricated. Tools include not just mowers but also, pruners, loppers, leaf blowers and weed eaters. Dirt left on tools can eventually lead to spreading soil diseases to the landscape and also cause deterioration of the tools. Pruning - Not something that is always commonly considered is pruning shrubs and trees during the winter months. However, this is actually a good time as the plants and trees are in dormancy. This action makes the plants healthier plus it can be a time saver when Spring finally arrives. Also, for those that live in parts of the country that receive heavy snowfall, brushing the snow off of the branches prior to it freezing can protect the plants from breakage or permanent disfiguration of the shrub or tree. Fertilize - January is a good time to put down food for the lawn as well as herbicide for weed and disease prevention. This is also a good time to place fertilizer around the drip line of trees.

When it comes to seasonal landscaping care, winter is one of the most challenging due to the cold conditions, including the potential for snow and ice. The freezing ground can also make it difficult to do some of the most common landscaping and lawn maintenance tasks like weeding and planting. Here are some tips on how to care for your lawn in the winter: Surprisingly, lawns can get over-watered in winter months. That means you should change your sprinkler system to water sparingly during these months. Stop any type of heavy traffic on the lawn. During the winter months, the grass is not as resilient as the summer time. It's especially important to keep off the lawn in the morning when the grass can be brittle due to the frost. Remove all organic debris from your lawn, including leaves and fallen tree branches. Leaving that debris on your lawn can cause bacteria and disease to flourish as well as attract insects and other pests. Use a rake to remove this debris. To prepare for spring, you may want to apply fertilizer toward the end of the winter season when the temperatures are starting to warm back up. Spread cool-weather grass seed to help promote a lush look in the spring time. Use a spreader like you did for the fertilizer. Lower the height of your mower by a notch or two so that the lawn is not too short when you start to mow again. Keep an eye on the changing weather conditions. While turf can be resilient and tolerate extreme winter, certain inclement conditions can be harmful over an extended period of time. If you are still not sure, we're here to help!
