Winter Planting & Projects

 

When you are thinking about landscape projects but you’re in the middle of winter, you may not get a rise of enthusiasm. Most folks think in terms of warm weather as the time to accomplish most outdoor tasks. However in the dormant season from October-February, the planting of certain shrubs and trees can be rewarding! 

 

*There is less stress on the plant

*The root system becomes established before the next growing season

*Less watering is required

*The amount of maintenance in the coming year is reduced

*In certain cases the expense of the project can be reduced 

 

                                                                                                         

 

There is no question that a tree planting project is best done in the cold weather months!
