The Best Way To Care For Your Lawn

Posted by San Diego Landscaper on Wednesday, 22 December , 2021

Winter is here, but that does not mean that you can stop caring for your San Diego lawn and landscape!  Even during these dormant months, there are ways to help your lawn and garden stay beautiful and return to its full glory in the spring.

San Diego has a very mild climate, so we do not experience the highs and lows that other areas of the country have.  In some locations, it is necessary to “winterize” your yard; here in sunny California, we are able to bypass some of that work.  However, there are still things you can do to keep your lawn healthy and to ensure that it bounces back from the winter months.

San Diego Winter Lawn Care 

A few things that affect San Diego winter lawn care include:

  • The average high temperature in San Diego in December, January, and February is 66 degrees.  While this is not particularly warm, it is warm enough to encourage some growth, so homeowners must consider which plants will be blooming throughout the winter.  The average low temperatures are 49 degrees for December, 50 degrees for January, and 51 degrees for February.  This means that certain tropical plants may be at risk during “cold snaps,” when the temperature goes below these averages.
  • There are an average of only four days of rain during each of the winter months in San Diego.  This time of year is what is known as the “wet season,” as opposed to periods of drought during other times of the year.  While the rain is not particularly plentiful, it is important to plan and take advantage of these days of rainfall to refresh watering systems.
  • Insect activity. Insect species that infest gardens and yards change during the seasons, so it is important to know which insects will impact your yard during these winter months.  Using organic pest control methods can help you take control of insect infestation while still being kind to the environment and ecosystem.  Organic pest control methods can include introducing non-invasive species to control other insects, planting certain types of plants that drive away insects, and using organic insecticides.

    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
