The team at ProScapes can’t believe that after another successful landscaping season in Hudson, NH, we’re getting ready for fall. The air is already starting to cool off, and we are preparing our homes for the changing weather ahead. We know there are many homeowners out there who love working on their own gardening and lawn maintenance, so here are a few chores we want you to remember to plan for winter:
Fall is the ideal season for shrub transplanting because as your shrubs move into their dormant stages, they require less water and attention, which in turn protects against the stress caused by moving the plants.
Similar with transplants, fall is another great time to prune your shrubs and trees. Landscapers in the Hudson, NH area often suggest waiting until this season to prevent disease from growing and also allows the tree or shrub to heal slowly.
Weed and fertilize
Weeding and turning over your soil while the ground is soft will save you lots of time and hard labor in the spring. Fertilizer will provide your plants with the nutrients they will be going without during the winter season, as well.
If there is one lawn care tip most important for the Hudson, NH climate, it’s to mulch! Mulch provides your plants with the warmth they need during the winter season and protects them against the harsh elements they will face.
Prep sprinkler system and outdoor faucets
The last thing you want is to deal with cracks and other concerns caused by ice in the winter time. Take time to learn about your particular system, disconnected all hoses, store them properly, and remove remaining water from the inside of pipes to prevent freezing.
If you find that these tasks are too much to handle, give our team a call! We would love to help prepare your landscape for the cold seasons ahead and survive for another year of beautiful blooming next spring!
