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. They need fuel just like the grass and proper placement and use of fertilizer in the winter will ensure trees are healthy and strong.
  • Landscape Design – During the winter months is a great time to hire a landscape design technician and start charting the landscape dream for your commercial property. The certified Pugh’s Earthworks landscape designers will work tirelessly with our customers to draft the exact landscape design to address every commercial client’s desires. Every aspect of your landscape will be addressed including proper plants, irrigation, lighting and environmental efficiency.
