Tasks to Do For Your Landscape or Lawn Every Winter

Did you know that there are several tasks you need to do in your garden during the winter season? As soon as the winter season officially starts, perhaps you can get a layer of fresh snow on your ground. However, though you aren’t actively harvesting, maintaining, growing, and planting at this time, some chores are as important as the primary ones in order to maintain your landscape, lawn, and yard according to Danville Landscapers. To now some of these, keep on reading this post:

Store and clean garden tools

Winter season is the best time to hoard your tools and have them prepared for the following season’s required chore. Repair, sharpen, clean, and store and never forget to take note of which tools or equipment would have to be changed.

Eliminate and store your hoses

This task is one of the least fun to do for landscaping. However, having a broken water spigot can surely spoil the fun more. So, make sure to get rid of all of your hoses from the spigots, drain the water out, and then hang them up in the garage or shed during the winter.

Finish a final cleanup

Nobody would want to head out and clean up your yard during winter especially if you are already cozy and warm inside. This task is thankless until your each at the following spring and you have a messy garden. Get rid of cages, non-permanent trellises, containers, and cages, then clean, fix, and store. This way, you already have a clean slate for the following year.

Remove dead leaves

Have you observed some of the meme circulating on social media that encourages you to leave your leaves on the lawn throughout the winter season to give shelter to bugs and more? Scratch that. It’s basically true in theory given that your lawn is a forest floor. However, it is not. In fact, leaving dead leaves throughout the freezing season can only develop disease problems. Hence, take time to head outside, rake the leave up, and put them into the compost pile.

Keep up your lawnmower

One of those tasks that we usually fail to do is maintaining our lawnmower. If we neglect to do this, we can eventually encounter some issues about it as we do lawn-mowing during the springtime.

Prune with a purpose

When you just feel bored and felt the urge of heading to your garden with your pruners, consider aborting that mission. You should never prune just because you want to keep busy. Make sure to just prune your plants or trees if you have a purpose for it, particularly during the cold season. Eliminate dead limbs that can fall every time cold winter winds pass. Moreover, think about trimming up your deciduous trees and evergreen shrubs since this season is the perfect time for them. This is because you can clearly see the form of your trees without any leave that blocks the view. Any perennials that have experienced the cold season and look sad would require a trim as well.
