Take Advantage of Slower-Growing Grass in the Winter

Posted by San Diego Landscaper on Sunday, 26 July , 2015

People who do not live in San Diego and who may not be familiar with our climate here tend to assume that it’s sunny and 75 degrees every day of the year if not warmer. All of us who actually live here, though, understand that while we do not exactly live in the Midwest or in the Northeast with all of their seasonal changes, we do have some degree of differences between summer and winter. As such, those of us with yards need to learn to manage them properly based on what the calendar says and what the yard is doing at any given time.

One of the things that people who have yards likely notice is that their lawns simply do not grow as quickly in the winter as they do during other times of the year. Many who need to mow their lawns at least once per week when it’s warm can let them go for at least two weeks now. That frees up time to do other things. Below are a few ideas to keep in mind for how to make use of this time. Anyone who needs additional help should seek the input of experienced San Diego landscaping professionals as soon as possible.

Handle Your Weeding

One of the things that homeowners can do during this time of year is to get ahead of the weeding that needs to be done. Generally speaking, weeds do not grow as quickly during the winter as they do in the summer either, so that should provide you with an opportunity to pull them out completely. It’s also a time when preventative measures can be taken so that the weeds that would otherwise return in a few months will have a much harder time doing so.

Handle Structural Needs

Aside from lawns, many yards also contain fences and patios that add to their overall look and functionality. This is a good time to put an extra coat of sealant on that fence or to thoroughly power wash that patio so that when it does come time to get back into your regular spring and summer routine you have one less thing to worry about.

Handle Any Plans

The winter is also a time to reassess things as they are needed. This includes a reassessment of the yard and any outdoor structures that exist. If you decide that changes need to be made, now is a good time to make them because plants are not necessarily in full bloom and the lawn will not need your full attention every week. Winter is the time of ideas for any homeowner.

If you are ready to take some sort of action with the outdoor portion of your property but you need help in putting those plans together or hashing out certain ideas, you need to seek the help of San Diego landscaping professionals who have been working with homeowners around the county for many years.

    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
