It can be easy to let commercial landscaping slide once the calendar flips past spring and summer, but the off-season is still a very important period. It’s an ideal time to plant new seeds, blanket the soil and handle any hardscaping projects that’ve been waiting on the backburner. Here are a few pointers to help you get the most out of your property all year round.
Sowing the Seeds
Warmer seasons bring new growth, but before that happens, the seed must be planted. Adding plants or trees can start in the autumn and carry into the initial stages of winter, before the harsher chill sets in. Less heat during these seasons means less evaporation and moister soil, making it easier for new flora to start taking root.
Spreading mulch can provide an immediate visual boost to your grounds, but it provides a number of even more important perks, such as:
- Reducing potential erosion
- Combatting growth of unwanted weeds
- Promoting ideal soil moisture levels and temperature
It’s clear to see that proper mulching can save you plenty of time on future maintenance. In the meantime, it delivers major benefits to soil while naturally beautifying the area; skipping this process is definitely not recommended.
Fall and winter are perfect times to reinvent your property through strategic hardscaping. From minor additions like rock formations, to major renovations like new sidewalks and retaining walls, the colder months can provide key opportunities to focus on some of the non-organic components of your commercial sprawl.
