How do I maintain my landscaping?

Regular maintenance tasks involve activities such as watering, mowing, weeding, pruning, fertilizing, and pest control. It is essential to periodically inspect and repair irrigation systems and hardscape features.

What is the best time of year to start a landscaping project?

In general, spring and fall are considered the ideal seasons for planting. During these periods, the weather conditions are mild, and the soil temperature is optimal for seed germination and root development. The mild weather also ensures that the plants have time to establish themselves before the onset of extreme temperatures. However, it is worth noting that planting can be done year-round, depending on the type of plants. For example, some plants require specific growing conditions and may thrive better in different seasons. Therefore, it is essential to research the plants and their growing conditions before deciding on the planting period. During the planting season, it is necessary to prepare the soil adequately. This includes removing any weeds, rocks, and debris and adding nutrients to the soil to support plant growth. It is also crucial to water the plants regularly, especially during the dry season, to ensure that they get the required moisture levels.

How can I create a hurricane-resistant landscape?

When planting trees and shrubs, choose varieties that are wind-resistant and avoid planting them too close to structures. Stake young trees for added support and prune regularly to remove dead or weak branches. Additionally, incorporating hardscape features like permeable pavers can help reduce erosion.
