Essential Garden Maintenance Tips For Winter

As the winter season approaches, you are probably thinking of how to make your cherished garden ready for the coldest months of the year. To help you out, we here at Kite Landscapes are happy to provide you with some smart tips that you can use to maintain your garden for winter.

1. Clear Garden Debris

Walk around your garden and collect dead leaves, twigs, and other unpleasant garden debris. This will help you in keeping small rodents and pests under control as they are fond of sheltering under piles of debris during the cold months of winter. If you have a big garden or struggle with gardening and need professional assistance, we are available to clear and remove the debris for you.

We have the latest tools that enable us to work fast and more efficiently. While clearing the debris, we also pick and throw away questionable plants and weeds that might be harmful to your favourite plants. Instead of throwing away all collected debris, we encourage you to make organic manure, utilising as much garden waste as possible, that you can use to boost the growth of your garden plants.

2. Protect Your Trees

Strong winds can easily bring down both weak and strong trees; ice and snow can break branches, damage leaves, and topple trees, and that’s why they need maximum protection. Our certified and highly-skilled tree surgeons are professionally trained to perform both minor and complicated operations such as dead wood removal and tree wrapping to protect your trees against winter damage.

If you have problems with rabbits or mice, we do our best to cover the trunk of trees with high-quality plastic tree collars or wire mesh to keep the stubborn animals away. Our tree surgeons’ highest levels of skills combined with genuine commitment and hard work enable them to offer the best services possible.

3. Spread Mulch

Make sure you spread mulch at the base of your shrubs, trees, and flowers. This layer of insulation applied on top of your garden plays a major role in limiting frost penetration and preventing sudden changes in soil temperatures, which in turn protects the roots of all plants. We offer a wide variety of mulch such as straws, wood chips, chopped leaves, and grass clippings.
