Winter is Coming!
Posted In: General News Posted by Hank Dugie on 11/18/2013


Winter is coming, and with it, the unpredictable Texas temperatures we have all come to know and love. To help ease the increased burden of the holiday season’s shopping, cooking, and preparing for the visiting in-laws, we have assembled a short list of ways you can protect your yard from colder climates. A little preparation now will save you a lot of headaches and money later.

Mulching
Installing mulch promotes healthy root activity, controls weed growth, helps prevent erosion and moderates soil temperatures. This is especially important for young or recently transplanted shrubs and trees. Do this before the first freeze to insure roots are properly protected from damage.

Trimming & Pruning
Besides aesthetic appearances, pruning promotes new growth and allows plants to produce more flowers in the spring. It also creates greater ventilation in your flower beds, decreasing the probability of harmful diseases and pest infestations. Dead or damaged limbs can be trimmed at any time of the year, but heavier maintenance work should be done late fall when plants are dormant.

Local Business Recommendation
KiKi Landscaping & Construction is a family owned and operated business in League City with more than 27 years of experience in the lawn care industry. We sought their expertise for the creation of this list.

Notice: Local business owners interested in being featured in this blog are welcome to send a brief description of their company along with a topic idea.
