As the winter season unfolds, many assume that landscaping takes a backseat until spring. However, at DBL Landscaping, we believe that winter offers unique opportunities to transform and prepare outdoor spaces. This post explores how our innovative approaches keep landscapes vibrant and healthy even in the colder months.
1. Understanding the Winter Landscape: Winter presents a different set of challenges and opportunities for landscaping. Plants enter dormancy, and the cold can affect soil and plant health. However, this season is ideal for certain landscaping activities. Pruning, for instance, is best done in winter when trees are dormant. This minimizes stress on trees and prevents the spread of diseases [Source: Arbor Day Foundation, Arborist Advice: Why Should You Prune Your Trees During the Dormant Season?].
