Dry Winters and Your Landscape
Winter snow, though beautiful and tranquil, can really damage your landscape in ways you wouldn't think. Dry air, snow, and frosty morning can leave your flowers and plants looking down and unmanaged by the time spring rolls around.
Dry winters can also bring on extra debris that can cause fires. So what can you do to keep your yard up and looking its best? Well in order to answer that, we have to look at what a dry winter really means.
Windy Winter Days
Blowing snow can cause pile ups on some areas of the lawn, while other spots may see less accumulation, causing more damage in some areas. Winds can also lead to downed branches from trees and shrubs.
So what do you do?
Shake the branches of your trees to remove the snow pile up with a broom. And prune before the winter season starts (We can help with that!)
The cold air that sticks around for months is dry and lacking in moisture.The dry air, especially when combined with the wind, can cause plants of all kinds to dry out.
What can I do?
Prune and Fertilization before the cold sets in.
Fire's As a Result of Debris
Due to the dryness and wind that comes with the winter months, fire's are a high risk this year. Though this monsoon season granted us with moisture, the expectation is that the next coming months we wont be as lucky.
