It’s common to think about hiring a professional landscaping company during the spring and summer months, but did you know that having an expert’s hands on your yard can be equally important during the cooler months of winter? While winter landscapes are often filled with dormant grass, fallen leaves and vacant flower beds, there are still lawn care tasks that need to be performed if you want to avoid lawn issues during other parts of the year. In fact, neglecting your lawn completely during the winter can mean a dead, barren and lackluster landscape in the spring.
Here are four reasons to hire a landscaper this winter:
#1 New Roots Thrive in Cool Weather
Without scorching temperatures outside, your soil can reach an ideal climate to foster new plant growth. There are several woody plants and perennials that do their best growing during the winter.
#2Lower Maintenance, Lower Cost
Fortunately, your winter lawn won’t require as much time as it does in the spring and summer to look its best. This means you’ll landscaping company won’t need to make as many visits, which can reduce your monthly lawn maintenance bill.
#3 Off-Season Opportunities
Winter is considered the “off-season” for landscaping companies. Without a busy schedule, your landscaping company will have more availability and possibly more discounts. For this reason, many homeowners choose to start larger or more complicated projects.
#4 Better Tree Diagnostics
Trees may not be as pretty without their leaves, but they are easier to evaluate. An expert can better assess the health of a winter tree due to its exposed bark. This laid-back season will give ample time to complete necessary treatments and prevent tree death.
