Winter landscaping is a crucial time for cleanup. There is maintenance involved throughout your property that can be done to your home now in order to help you fully appreciate your landscape and allow it to reach its full potential come springtime.
Winter is the season that reveals to you the true form of the landscape of your yard. Now that all the leaves are down you are able to see the real structure of your surroundings, as well as the hidden debris/trouble of dead trees, downed branches, garbage and wreckage normally hidden in the growing season. Winter landscaping also reveals the actual form of the plants on your property, allowing your landscape professionals to correct any crossing or overlapping branches that are visible and to create a plan to take effect by spring.
