Your commercial landscape in Maryland experiences a lot every season. In spring, your property pushes through some intense growth with the warm temperatures. With proper care, your commercial landscape can survive the summer’s heat and storms. Then we have fall. It’s a time of cooling temperatures when your trees and shrubs regroup and prepare for winter. Check out this fall guide on how to prepare your commercial landscape for winter.
Keep Up with Leaf Removal
At Edward’s Lawn & Landscaping, we know leaf cleanup can feel overwhelming during autumn, especially if your commercial facility has many trees. But leaf removal is essential to prevent snow mold and any dying grass. We suggest raking or blowing leaves into manageable piles and eliminating them. Otherwise, you can request our leaf removal services. Call us today at 443-341-6539!
Clean Up Trees and Shrubs
Another way to prepare your commercial landscape for winter is to clean up your perennials, trees, and shrubs. They will naturally need maintenance to maintain their shape and health. For trees and shrubs, make sure to perform fall fertilization and correctly prune them to promote new growth and disease resistance.
Fertilize Your Grass in the Fall
During autumn, take the time to prepare your commercial landscape for winter through fertilization. This approach helps increase nutrients in your lawn and grow stronger roots at this time of year. Consequently, this may aid your lawn’s health come springtime, making it robust and healthier.
Perform a Final Mowing
Later in the fall, you’ll want to mow your commercial grass for the last time. This is a winter landscape tip you can’t neglect. During this mow, you trim the grass slightly shorter to prevent the possibility of snow mold buildup. In addition, tidying up grass in fall is a significant task to prioritize, help avoid lawn problems, and ensure spring success.
Aeration and Overseeding Matters
Autumn is an ideal time for some additional turf maintenance through aeration and overseeding. Aeration allows your grass some time to develop stronger roots while exposing the soil to a great dose of nutrients. Additionally, overseeding can thicken your lawn up when collaborating with aeration. This is because aeration creates the perfect holes for turf seeds to contact the soil and germinate.
