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 lawn-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 ways 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 still there are some things that can be done to keep your landscaping in great shape and to lessen the workload when the weather warms up.
Plus, 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. So, chin up and let’s get to thinking about how we can make the yard even better this year.
Now, bundle up, get outside and make your job easier come spring sunshine!
