Winter Garden Maintenance Service Malahide
Just as your garden has four distinct seasons of growth and rest, it has four distinct seasons of landscape and garden maintenance. What you have to do depends on the time of year and the type of tree or plant. Here are checklists for seasonal lawn care; trees, shrubs, and ground covers; flower and kitchen gardens; and hard landscape elements to make the work easy to tackle no matter the time of year.
Winter Lawn Care
- If your lawn is green in winter, lightly dose with nitrogen fertilizer in late winter.
- For optimal winter lawn care, avoid walking on it if it is dormant or frozen, and use alternatives to salt (sand or kitty litter) as appropriate.
Winter Trees, Shrubs, and Ground cover Maintenance
- If rain and snow are lacking, water newly planted evergreens.
- Plant bare-root roses as soon as you can.
- Prune fruit trees in late winter; spray with dormant oil.
- Wrap trees with tree guards to protect from rodent damage.
- Wrap tender foundation shrubs in burlap.
Winter Garden Maintenance
- Review wintering bulbs, discarding those that are soft or rotten.
