Davis Kee Outdoor is dedicated to helping our customers create beautiful and healthy outdoor spaces. January is a great time to start planning for your lawn and landscape for the upcoming year, and we have some tips to help you get started.
January is the ideal time to start preparing your lawn for the spring. Begin by removing any leaves or debris from your lawn to ensure that it can properly breathe and receive sunlight. This will also help prevent the growth of mold and mildew. If the ground isn’t frozen, you can also aerate your lawn by using a lawn aerator or by renting one. Aerating your lawn will help improve the soil’s ability to absorb water and nutrients, which will lead to a healthier lawn.
January is also a great time to start planning any landscaping projects you may want to tackle in the upcoming year. Consider adding new trees, shrubs, or flowers to your yard to add color and interest. When choosing plants, be sure to select varieties that are native to the Chattanooga area and can tolerate the area’s climate. This will ensure that they are well-suited to the local environment and will require less maintenance in the long run.
January is a great time to plant trees and shrubs. The cool temperatures and dormant soil make it easier for plants to establish roots before the spring growing season begins. When planting, make sure to dig a hole that is twice as wide as the root ball but only as deep as the root ball. Backfill the hole with the soil you removed and water well.
In addition, mulch can be applied around trees, shrubs, and flowers to help retain moisture, suppress weeds, and moderate soil temperature.
Overall, January is a great time to start planning for your lawn and landscape. By following these tips, you can ensure that your lawn and landscape will be healthy and beautiful for the upcoming year.
