As your go-to residential and commercial landscaping service company, Muddy Paws Landscaping is here to provide you with the ultimate guide to seasonal yard maintenance. With our expert tips, you can keep your landscape looking beautiful year-round.

Spring: As the flowers begin to bloom and the trees start to bud, it's time to kick off the new season with some yard maintenance. Start by cleaning up any debris that has accumulated over the winter months. This includes leaves, branches, and any other clutter that may have gathered in your yard. Next, take the time to fertilize your lawn to promote healthy growth. This is also a great time to plant new flowers and shrubs to add some color to your landscape.

Summer: The summer months are all about maintaining your yard's health and beauty. Make sure to mow your lawn regularly to keep it looking neat and tidy. Water your plants and lawn as needed, especially during hot, dry spells. It's also important to keep an eye out for pests and diseases that may be affecting your landscape. If you notice any issues, contact us at Muddy Paws Landscaping for professional help.

Fall: As the leaves start to change and fall, it's time to prepare your yard for the winter ahead. Rake up fallen leaves and clear out any dead plants to prevent them from creating a home for pests during the colder months. This is also a good time to aerate your lawn and apply a winterizing fertilizer to ensure that your grass stays healthy throughout the winter.

Winter: While the winter months may seem like a time to sit back and relax, there are still some tasks that need to be done to maintain your landscape. Keep an eye on your plants and trees, especially during heavy snowfalls or ice storms. Make sure to remove any snow from your plants to prevent damage. This is also a good time to plan and prepare for any landscaping projects you may want to tackle in the spring.

Year-Round: In addition to seasonal maintenance, there are some tasks that should be done year-round to keep your landscape looking its best. Regularly prune your trees and shrubs to promote healthy growth. Keep an eye on the health of your plants and address any issues promptly. And don't forget to regularly clean up any debris that may accumulate in your yard.
