Landscaping Resolutions for the New Year
Why limit new year’s resolutions to your lifestyle when you can make landscape resolutions for 2023? We’ve compiled our suggestions for the year: update your landscaping; create a comfortable outdoor space; commit to Florida-Friendly Landscaping principles; invest in property maintenance; and plan ahead.
Winter Landscaping To-Dos
While chores like mowing are not a priority during the winter, Florida homeowners can take on other landscaping tasks during the winter season. Clear and re-mulch garden beds, remove fallen leaves, plant annuals, check for mistletoe, sow ryegrass, and prepare for freezes.
Manage Those Cool-Weather Pests
While most pests are active through the summer, some turfgrass pests like the fall armyworm, chinch bug, sod webworm, and mole cricket might persist through the winter. Take preventative steps to reduce the risk of infestation and manage pests appropriately if a problem does arise.
What to Do with Your Live Tree After Christmas
10 million Christmas trees end up in landfill every season. Choose an environmentally friendly way to dispose of, repurpose, or recycle your tree this year: recycle it through a community program, create pine straw mulch, make a wildlife refuge, or enjoy a safe campfire.
Gifts for Gardening Lovers
Christmas is fast approaching and it’s time to start contemplating the perfect gift for the gardening lover in your life. We’ve compiled a list of gadgets and holiday plants to help you find the right gift for your special person.
Create a Wildlife-Friendly Landscape
Create a wildlife-friendly landscape that attracts native insects, birds, organisms, and other creatures. Plant a pollinator garden; provide shelter throughout your property for insects and small critters; install water sources like bird baths or fountains; and select native plants to support beneficial wildlife.
