Michigan winters can wreak havoc on your garden beds and lawn. Autumn is the best time to take steps to prepare your yard for whatever winter may bring. A professional landscaping company will make sure that your lawn and plants survive.

Professional Winterizing For Your Backyard Landscaping

There are several steps that can be taken in order to protect your lawn and garden from the harsh elements of winter in Michigan. A great place to start is checking the pH levels of your soil so you know which fertilizers and lawn care products to use. Using lime products will help treat acidic areas while sulfur treatments correct alkaline areas. Next, make sure to pull all weeds out of your garden beds. Perennial weeds will compete with your other plants for nutrients in the spring hindering their ability to grow. Lastly, cover your garden beds with either burlap or mulch to insulate the topsoil. An experienced landscaping company can make sure all of these tasks get done properly before winter rolls in.

Winterizing Your Lawn

There are lawn fertilizers that are meant specifically for preparing your grass for winter. They are made with a high potassium content to help fortify your lawn. Aerating your lawn before the winter allows water and air to get down into the roots of your grass. It promotes healthy growth in the spring and can be done quickly by a professional landscaper. Spreading grass seed while temperatures are still somewhat warm will help new growth in the spring as well.
