Don’t Skip Winter Cleanup for Your Yard

Posted by San Diego Landscaper on Saturday, 15 January , 2022

Cleaning up your yard and performing routine maintenance is not quite as exciting as choosing new plants or enjoying new water or hardscape features.  However, cleanup and maintenance are every bit as important as planting or building, perhaps even more so.  With a good cleanup and maintenance schedule, assisted by a professional, you can enjoy your yard and garden for years to come with a minimum of effort.

What Should Your Yard Cleanup Schedule Look Like?

For most San Diego residents, “winter” is a relative term.  While we do not have a long, cold snowy season like other parts of the country, winter is still a time in which specific yard tasks are easier to do and should be scheduled accordingly.  A few things you can focus on during the winter months in your San Diego yard include:

  • Changing your watering schedule. Many people stop thinking about watering once their routine is set, whether it involves turning on sprinklers manually or setting up an automated schedule.  However, your watering schedule should change during the winter months when needs are different.  Depending on the types of plants you choose, you will most likely need to adjust the amount and time of watering to keep those plants happy during both January and July.
  • Clean out dead annuals. If you have annual plants that have finished their life cycle, now is the time to clean them out.  You can leave those areas dormant for a bit to rest and replenish the soil, or you can fill them with different plants that have an alternative growth and blooming schedule.  This helps you to protect your soil from erosion and, with a bit of planning, adds different nutrients to your garden bed.
  • Plant winter food crops. If you are trying a bit of organic gardening, you are in luck!  San Diego’s climate allows you to plant food crops year-round, and the winter months are perfect for certain plants such as leafy greens.  By taking advantage of the winter cool down, you can produce great organic food from your yard and save a little on your grocery bill while helping your family stay healthy.

The help of a professional landscaper and yard maintenance company is invaluable in creating and maintaining a healthy, well-groomed yard all year.  Consider using a professional yard company to ensure that your garden and surroundings are beautiful, functional, and well-designed, then keeping that company to maintain your new yard in all its glory.

    Juniper Landscape Company has been fantastic. Before them, we ran through three or four other lawn and landscape maintenance companies who did spotty and sometimes outright poor work, were not always reliable and who ended up creating problems for us in a variety of ways. That experience led us to subscribe to Angie's List... Read More
