Tempe landscaping company
, Corona Landscape, has outlined several recommendations for winter landscaping. During the first months of the New Year, homeowners need to cover their plants at night if they want to avoid frost bite and fertilize winter lawns.
Usually in early February, frost bitten and over grown plants can be cut back after the threat of frost has past. Fruit trees should be pruned in February as well.
œHomeowners should be careful not to neglect winter maintenance if they want to have attractive landscaping year-round, said Ed Bambauer, owner of Corona Landscape. œWinter, like every season, requires some special treatments for your lawn and plants to ensure they flourish.
The average first frost date in Maricopa County varies from November 21 to December 12. The last frost date ranges from February 7 to April 3. Although covering frost-sensitive plants is important to preserve them, homeowners should also be careful not to over-protect them.
To keep their grass green during the winter months, homeowners who have over-seeded their lawns with ryegrass need to fertilize. Homeowners can add appropriate nutrients to insure healthy growth by applying a thin layer of organic fertilizer each winter month.
These recommendations will help Arizona homeowners create and maintain a healthy winter landscape that will provide a good foundation for next year's growing season.About Corona Landscape
