Winter officially begins this week and the holidays are in full swing. While things do slow down a bit in the landscaping world during this season, there’s always work to do at a commercial property.
Keep these items in mind during the winter to help maintain or enhance your commercial site’s curb appeal:
• Fert Applications – Apply fertilizer rich in potassium and phosphorus to give grass areas a strong foundation for the growing season
• Pruning and Tree Removals – Pruning should be performed on any overgrown branches higher than 13 feet (if weather permits), as they may fall during snow or a storm; diseased or dead trees should be removed as well
• Color Changeout– Seasonal foliage adds color to a property’s curb appeal, and is a great welcoming touch for customers as they approach a business (especially during dark and grey winter days)
• Bark or Mulch – Winter is a good time to install bark, as it attributes to the overall health of the soil, minimizes growth of weeds, and gives a site a refined touch year round, along with color (depending on type of bark or mulch)
