Caring for your lawn and garden in colder weather

It may not be winter yet, but smart homeowners and business owners know that now is the time to start thinking about your yard next year.

For those living in the West, winter and early spring can be frustrating times for those who are really into gardening, landscaping and other outdoor law-related pursuits. This quiet time of reflection can quickly turn to disappointment that the snow just keeps falling along with the realization that summer is a long, long way off.

True, yard care isn’t quite as demanding in January, February and March (some years, even April) as it is during the summer months.

But there are definitely some things that can be done in the cooler weather to keep your landscaping in great shape and get your outside. And we don’t know about you, but it always feels good to have an excuse to get outside for some fresh air during the cooped-up winter months.

The winter, too, is a great time to start planning for next year. You can start thinking about the plants you’d like to experiment with, what flowers to grow, or what new birds you’d like to attract. It might also be a great time to brainstorm how to get those pesky squirrels out of your bird feeder or how to finally grow lush grass in the shady spot in your lawn.

So, there’s still lots to do either as the weather turns cool. Here are a few suggestions to get your started. We suggest making a check list, or print out ours! You can keep in on your fridge all year round as a reminder of what to add to your list of weekly chores.
