In our June blog, we provide these landscaping tips for summer, autumn, winter, and spring:


Spring: The Awakening Season

  1. Soil Testing: Before planting, get a soil test. This evaluation will guide your fertilization choices, ensuring plants get the proper nutrients.


  1. Pruning: It’s the best time to prune most shrubs and trees. Remove dead or diseased branches to pave the way for new growth. The Spruce has a list of the 12 best pruners of 2023.


Summer: Full Bloom and Growth

  1. Regular Watering: With higher temperatures, ensure you adequately water your plants, especially newly planted ones.


  1. Mulching: Protect plant roots from the summer heat and conserve moisture by spreading a layer of mulch around your plants.


Autumn: Preparing for the Chill

  1. Leaf Removal: While autumn leaves are picturesque, leaving them on your lawn can suffocate the grass. Regularly rake or use a leaf blower.


  1. Plant Bulbs: For spring blooms like tulips and daffodils, plant them in the fall.


Winter: Dormancy and Protection


  1. Winterize Sprinkler Systems: Drain and winterize your sprinkler systems to prevent pipe bursts before the first freeze.


  1. Protect Delicate Shrubs: Use burlap wraps or windbreaks for vulnerable plants to shield them from harsh winter winds and snow.
