Help Your Yard Flourish With Proper Winter Landscape Care

Just because winter has arrived in Colorado doesn’t mean that you can forget your home’s garden and landscaping for the season. Ongoing landscape maintenance is necessary during the winter months to have an eye-catching winter landscape and to help your garden and yard thrive come spring and summer. Neglecting winter landscape care can damage your investment in plantings and landscaping and make it difficult to get back on track come spring.

Winter Landscape Care from Lifescape Colorado

Our team at Lifescape Colorado can help you with all of your winter landscaping needs and help you create a yard that offers year-round appeal. Here are a few ways that we can help to make your winter landscape shine and and prepare for a bountiful spring:

1. Water plant material.

The plants and shrubs in your Colorado landscape need moisture to be able to survive the cold winter months. Our climate tends to produce mild and dry winters. Even though we get a lot of snow here in Denver, 12 inches of snow only equates to 1 inch of water, so we can’t count on natural precipitation to water our plantings. New plantings and trees often require supplemental water. Appropriate irrigation is important for winter landscape care, and our landscape professionals at Lifescape Colorado can help you to determine your watering needs.

2. Prune dormant trees.

Winter is the ideal time to shape up dormant trees and keep them healthy by pruning them. Make a point to remove any dead, damaged, or diseased limbs that take away from your home’s beauty or that could be damaged by heavy snow and ice. You can even save your clippings for seasonal decor around your home.

3. Mulch now, benefit all year long.

We are currently adding mulch to our clients’ landscapes to reduce winter injury to plants, retain moisture and help with weed control in the spring. Mulch also contributes to soil health and fertility and helps prevent erosion or mechanical injury from lawn equipment.

4. Install landscape lighting.

Brighten up your winter landscape and help fight seasonal doldrums by installing landscape lighting. We offer energy efficient lighting solutions that will give your yard an ambient glow and offer a myriad of benefits, from safety to aesthetic appeal.

Beat the Spring Rush for Landscape Design-Build Projects

Spring is the busiest time of year for landscape installations and design-build projects. As the temperatures warm up, Denver residents are thinking about outdoor entertaining and ways to improve their landscape. Because of the influx of calls that landscape companies receive in the spring, it may take longer to get started on and complete your project.

Winter, on the other hand, tends to be the slowest season. As we begin 2018, you can get a jump start on your landscape design and construction project and benefit from having the undivided attention of experienced architects.

How Our Design-Build Process Works

Our landscape architects at Lifescape Colorado have more than 40 years of experience in designing and building custom residential and commercial projects. We begin the design-build process by walking the project site with our client to gather information about goals and discuss high-level design ideas. We then take this information to draft a conceptual landscape plan that is within the client’s budget. Once the design and construction plans are approved by the client, we begin construction. Each project has a foreman and operations manager on site to ensure that construction goes smoothly.

As you can see, multiple steps go into the landscape design-build process, and getting started early in the year will help to expedite your project.

Benefits of Beating the Spring Rush with Your Design-Build Project

Another advantage to beating the spring rush with your landscape design and build project is that you’ll get to maximize your enjoyment of the finished product. By starting early, you can begin enjoying your new installation as soon as the temperatures in Colorado begin to warm up. Being proactive and starting your landscape project in January or February can also save you money.

Don’t wait! Take advantage of this slower season in landscape design and contact us at Lifescape Colorado to learn more about our design-build process and get your project started early.
