Winter landscape care is equally as important as the way you take care of your lawn and garden during the other seasons of the year. While the things you’ll need to do will vary, it’s important not to let the little chores slide as they can make a big difference during the growing seasons ahead.
Flowers especially need a little extra TLC. You should make sure to cut back dry stems on your perennials to the soil. This helps prevent disease and infestation. You will also want to make sure to compost your dead plant debris while you are at it. This will give you a fresh pile of healthy compost to apply in the spring.
It is also a good idea to apply a layer of winter mulch. This helps prevent mice and other rodents from nesting in the soil, and it also provides a layer of insulation that will keep your plant’s roots healthy and hearty.
