4 Tips for Proper Upkeep

NEW YORK, NY, August 14, 2019 /24-7PressRelease/ — The truth hurts, but fall is upon us. It’s time to sit back and relax with a pumpkin-spiced latte, crockpot chili, and Football Sunday. While you’re relaxing and enjoying the brisk air coming through your windows, your plants might not be feeling the same way. John Mini Distinctive Landscapes shares a few tips that will help keep your plants safe from the unpredictable fall weather.

Keep Maintaining

Maintenance of your landscape is important, especially if it’s a commercial landscaping area. John Mini offers a thorough cleaning of landscape debris, cutting back perennial plants for winter preservation, irrigation deactivation and shutdown, applying anti-desiccant to evergreens and shrubs, and more. Having professionals take care of your landscape saves you time and also prevents your plants from dying.

Keep Debris Away

Landscapers can’t work on your land every day, all day. So, it’s your job to know how to protect your plants during off times. Keeping debris away is important, especially if rain or even snow is coming your way. Fall weather has been growingly unpredictable the past few years, so it’s important to plan for anything. If leaves and other debris are falling on your flowers, shrubs, and features with bad weather coming, chances are those plants will be smothered. If possible, try to clear out as much debris as you can before the weather destroys your beautiful scapes.

Spread Mulch

Spreading mulch is something professionals can do for you, but in case something happens to your landscaping when the professionals are not around, it’s important for you to know that this is an important step when protecting your bulbs and plants. Mulch provides food for your plants during and after the cold seasons. It also holds water for plants to drink during those October Indian summers.

Add Mums

If your landscape includes flowers and plants that thrive in the summer, contact your maintenance professionals to prepare them for the colder seasons. Once prepared, you don’t want your landscape to look bare. The best solution is to have plants and flowers that thrive in the fall. Mums are a great fall flower. They come in a variety of different colors and will withstand the cold October nights. There are other flowers that even thrive in the winter to keep your landscape looking sharp and clean all year long. Contact us today to move those beauties in!
