Get the Soil in Shape
Maintaining soil conditions is a year-round thing. You need to make sure the soil is power packed with nutrients. You need to invest in fall fertilization. This may involve a considerable amount of time and money. However, the results will astonish you. Winter damage can wreak havoc on your turf. Fall fertilization helps in strengthening your plants for a strong comeback during spring.
You should also make sure that the flower beds don’t have any debris on them. This is an important job for your landscaper. Flower beds need to be aerated and fertilized if you want blooms to appear in the next season.
Functional Irrigation System
It is important to make sure that your irrigation system works year round. However, it is even more important during the spring season. It is best to have a professional look over your irrigation system during colder months if you haven’t had it maintained in a long time. Winters are usually more relaxed before the busy system hits to prep your system and discounts may be available.
Additionally, irrigation systems that are in working order will need to be winterized. This allows them to remain in working order come spring. Winterization can also help in reducing your water bill. If you want, you can consider upgrading the system with soil sensors and atmospheric sensors to prevent overwatering.
