Here are some tips from the pros at Muddy Paws that will help you achieve a beautifully landscaped property no matter the season. Spring: - Spring is a time of renewal, and your landscaping should reflect that. Start by cleaning up any debris that has accumulated over the winter months. Rake leaves, clear out flower beds, and trim any dead branches or plants. - Consider planting new flowers, shrubs, or trees to add color and vibrancy to your outdoor space. Choose plants that are well-suited to the spring weather in your area. - Don't forget to fertilize your lawn and freshen up your mulch to give your landscaping a healthy start to the season.

Summer: - In the heat of summer, it's important to water your landscaping regularly. Consider installing a sprinkler system or set up a watering schedule to keep your plants healthy. - Keep an eye out for pests and disease in your plants. Address any issues promptly to prevent them from spreading to the rest of your landscaping. - Consider adding outdoor lighting to highlight the beauty of your landscaping during the long summer evenings.

Fall: - Fall is the perfect time to plant new trees and shrubs. The cooler temperatures and increased rainfall make it ideal for planting. - Keep up with leaf removal to prevent them from smothering your lawn and plants. Consider mulching your leaves rather than bagging them for added nutrients. - Take the time to aerate and fertilize your lawn in the fall to promote healthy growth in the spring.

Winter: - Winter landscaping is all about maintenance. Make sure to regularly clear snow and ice from your walkways and driveways to prevent accidents. - Consider using winter-friendly plants like evergreens or winter berries to add some color to your landscaping during the colder months. - Protect any delicate plants or shrubs from harsh winter weather by covering them with burlap or other protective materials.
