Landscape Innovations Offers Winter Landscaping Care

Spring and summer are always very busy times for landscapers. We are busy with multiple landscape design projects and our lawncare in Franklin, TN. However, in the winter many home owners in Tennessee stop thinking about landscaping and lawn care around November. But, winter landscaping can actually get your yard’s springtime off to a better start. 

Winter Landscaping Care Includes Planting Trees

Planting Trees and Shrubs

Winter is a good time to plant trees and shrubs in Tennessee because we have such mild winters. Unlike northern states where the ground is frozen almost all winter, Tennessee offers plenty of planting opportunities during the winter. 

Leaf Removal

Raking and removing leaves in the fall is usually not a one-and-done task. Some trees take months to lose all their leaves, which may require multiple visits. In reality, leaf removal is often needed well into the winter months to keep lawns healthy.

Winter Landscaping Care Includes Weed Removal

Typically, people think of weed removal as a summer lawn care service. But did you know that some weeds actually thrive in cold weather. Chickweed, henbit, and shepherd’s purse begin their germination and growth in the late fall and early winter. 

We offer weed removal specifically for weeds that thrive in the fall and winter months. Taking preventative measures helps stop the spread of weeds. 

Mulching Is Also a Winter Service

Winter mulching protects perennial plants from cold weather damage. It also helps block winter weeds. For best results, mulching should be done after the first hard frost.  

Landscape Planning

Winter is a good time to start planning landscaping for your property because you can get a much better “picture” of your space.  Annuals are dead, perennials are leafless or in dormancy, and evergreens are in plain view. It’s a good time to have a landscape designer come out and assess your landscaping needs.
