BLOG Seasonal Landscaping Tips from RCB Landscape: Keeping Your Garden Green Year-Round May 03, 2024

As the seasons change, so do the needs of your garden. At RCB Landscape, we understand the importance of maintaining a green and vibrant landscape year-round. That's why we've compiled a list of seasonal landscaping tips to help you keep your garden looking its best in every season.

Spring: 1. Start by cleaning up your garden beds. Remove any debris, old leaves, and dead plants to make way for new growth. 2. Prune your shrubs and trees to promote healthy growth and shape them for the upcoming growing season. 3. Add a fresh layer of mulch to help retain moisture and suppress weeds. 4. Plant cool-season annuals like pansies, violas, and snapdragons for a pop of color.

Summer: 1. Water your garden deeply and infrequently to encourage deep root growth. Early morning is the best time to water to reduce evaporation. 2. Deadhead flowers regularly to promote new blooms and keep your garden looking fresh. 3. Monitor for pests and diseases, and take action immediately to prevent damage to your plants. 4. Consider adding drought-tolerant plants to reduce water consumption and keep your garden thriving in the heat.

Fall: 1. Continue watering as needed until the ground freezes to help plants prepare for winter. 2. Plant spring-flowering bulbs like tulips, daffodils, and crocuses for a burst of color next year. 3. Clean and store garden tools to keep them in good condition for the next growing season. 4. Remove debris and fallen leaves to prevent pests and diseases from overwintering.

Winter: 1. Protect tender plants from frost by covering them with burlap or a frost cloth. 2. Take the time to plan and design your garden for the upcoming year. Consider adding new features or reorganizing existing ones. 3. Feed the birds to bring life and movement to your garden during the quieter winter months. 4. Use the winter months to research and plan for any landscaping projects you want to undertake in the spring.
