Do you consider your lawn care when planning your holiday decorations? Just in case you haven’t, we want to provide some useful lawn care tips for maintaining your beautiful lawn through the holidays. This is especially important due to the time of year and the typical landscape conditions around this season.
Winter Lawn Care Tips
Your lawn doesn’t do a lot of growing during the colder months, so repairing damage to your lawn can take a bit longer and increase the chances of dead patches. Let’s get into some seasonally relevant lawn care tips. We’ll cover lawn care tips for warmer months in a blog post within the first quarter of 2018.
Holiday Lawn Decorations
Large lawn decorations can cause flattening of grass, extra moisture retention, and block sunlight from reaching the grass. This isn’t such a big deal if it’s only for a short period, but more than a few weeks can make a noticeable difference.
When placing large inflatables or anything that requires ground stakes, be careful to not puncture irrigation lines. If you are unsure of where your irrigation lines run under the ground, please contact us so we can help you identify hazard areas.
Sprinklers are another thing to look out for. Be sure that lawn decorations don’t cover sprinklers if your irrigation system is still active. This is also a great time to consult with us about calibrating your irrigation system, at which time we can go over any detailed questions about this aspect of your lawn and holiday decorations.
Rooftops with debris are likely to encounter issues if you hang lights before clearing your rooftop. This could create a fire hazard so this is really important to consider.
Since a lot of people are likely to drive around over the holidays to see all of the houses lit up at night, it should be obvious that we think you should schedule a visit with us to make your yard as beautiful as possible before putting in all the hard work of hanging lighting and other decorations.
Thinking About The New Year
Looking even further into the year, we are coming up on New Year celebrations. 2018 will certainly open with a lot of fireworks and potentials for fires. Scheduling a lawn care visit with us will leave your yard looking great, but also free of leaves and other combustible debris, reducing any potential fire hazards.
We want you to be safe this year so here is a link to more firework safety information from AccuWeather.
