Sadly it is that time of year, time to get your garden ready for winter. Time to get that last harvest out of your vegetable garden and time to get the last cut flowers from your fall flowering perennials and shrubs.
Spring is an ideal time to plan your own lawn care program. Maintaining a healthy lawn can certainly be a difficult challenge for homeowners, but with a few helpful tips from our professionals, you can have a head start to a lush lawn in no time!
As soon as the snow melts and it’s comfortable to be outside, you can begin your spring clean up. At Winterberry, we use a combination of tools & techniques: mechanical blowers are used to clear out leaves and small debris, and raking is performed for turf and areas around plantings where leaves accumulate over the winter. These must be cleared to avoid problems that stem from lack of air circulation, such as mold. Raking alone will achieve the desired result: beds and turf areas completely cleared of any debris. Besides removing sticks, twigs and leaves, it important to rake out any dead or matted areas of grass.
