Blog Seasonal Landscaping Tips from Muddy Paws: Keeping Your Garden Vibrant Year-Round Apr 20, 2024

As the seasons change, your garden requires different care to ensure it remains vibrant year-round. At Muddy Paws Landscaping, we understand the importance of maintaining a beautiful outdoor space no matter the time of year. That's why we've put together some seasonal landscaping tips to help you keep your garden looking its best throughout the year.

Spring: 1. Clean Up: Start the season by cleaning up any debris left over from winter, such as fallen branches or dead leaves. This will give your garden a fresh start. 2. Prune and Trim: Trim back any overgrown shrubs or trees to encourage new growth. Pruning also helps improve the overall appearance of your garden. 3. Plant Colorful Flowers: Add pops of color to your garden by planting bright, colorful flowers that thrive in the spring weather.

Summer: 1. Water Regularly: With the warmer temperatures, your garden will need more water to stay hydrated. Be sure to water your plants regularly, especially during hot, dry spells. 2. Mulch: Mulch helps retain moisture in the soil, prevents weed growth, and protects plant roots from extreme temperatures. Apply a fresh layer of mulch to your garden beds in the summer. 3. Keep Weeds in Check: Stay on top of weed control by regularly pulling out any unwanted plants before they have a chance to spread.

Fall: 1. Rake Leaves: Keep your garden tidy by raking up fallen leaves. Leaves left on the ground can suffocate your plants and cause mold growth. 2. Plant Bulbs: Fall is the perfect time to plant bulbs for spring blooms. Consider planting tulips, daffodils, or crocuses for a burst of color next year. 3. Clean and Store Garden Tools: Before winter sets in, clean and store your garden tools to prevent rust and damage.

Winter: 1. Protect Plants: Cover sensitive plants with burlap or a frost cloth to protect them from harsh winter weather. 2. Feed Birds: Help out our feathered friends by providing bird feeders with seeds and suet. 3. Plan for Next Season: Use the winter months to plan out any landscaping projects you want to tackle in the spring.
