It is no surprise it is cold this time of year in Kansas City. After all, it is still the winter season! The good news is, we are often blessed with warm weather days that allow us to get out in the landscape and get some much needed work done!
That is great, but what can I do? Well, here are a few things you can do to get your landscape ready for Spring on a nice Kansas City day during the Winter.
- Remove all loose debris such as sticks, leaves, and old acorns from your turf. This will allow fertilizer and weed control access to the soil where it needs to be.
- Remove all loose debris from your landscape beds, rake any mulch that has spread out into the lawn, and re-define those bedding edges.
- Most importantly, if we have had little moisture, make sure and water your lawn and plants if possible. It is winter, but those living plants need water to survive.
That is all you need to do in Kansas City to get a jump start on your lawn and landscaping. You will be ready for fertilizer, weed control, and some fresh mulch to get your lawn and landscape in tip-top shape for Spring. Make your Kansas City lawn the best on the block!
