Do you live in Montgomery County? If you do, then you are probably used to seeing gorgeous lawns and landscapes three seasons out of the year. But just because your winter landscape is dormant, it doesn’t mean you should ignore it. Here are some pointers on how to take care of your winter landscape if you find yourself pressed for time.
Pay Attention to Your Landscape Design
For any significant long-term project, planning and design are critical. For your winter landscape in Montgomery County, careful landscape design is even more crucial. Your plants will grow over time, and will eventually die. Don’t leave dead trees in your yard for too long, or it might decrease your home’s curb appeal. Also, be mindful of how different trees and other plants will interact with each other once they take root in your yard – and what might happen once it’s time for them to hibernate during the winter.
Continue to Look After It
Even after your landscape is designed and installed, you should keep looking after it. During the spring and summer, you’ll probably see your neighbors mowing the lawn, trimming the verge, and replanting their gardens. However, all of that isn’t as simple and magical as it looks. During the first three years of your landscape’s time on your property, it will require the most amount of maintenance. Don’t forget to give plants all the water they need, but not too much. And when weeds appear, you’ll have to remove them as well.
Don’t Wait Too Long
Lastly, don’t wait too long to do anything. Maintenance tasks such as pruning watering will depend on the needs of the plants and trees in your winter landscape and the weather you can expect for the near future – when it’s seventy degrees outside, you can expect your landscape to behave much differently than when it is only seventeen degrees outside.
