Enhance Your Outdoor Lighting

Shorter days and icy walkways create a need for functional landscape lighting around your property for added security, safety, and usability. Winter is a great time to install any or all of the following:

  • Pathway lighting – Illumination is needed along the pathway to your front door or garage or to various areas around your property, to provide safe passage for your family and guests.
  • Security lights – Floodlights, motion lighting, and other types of strategically placed lighting can help to deter criminals from theft and vandalism.
  • Stair lighting – Prevent tripping by placing lights on each stair to enhance safety.
  • Accent lighting – Highlight architectural features or other focal points around your property.

Install a Fire Feature

Nothing is more inviting on a cool winter evening than a roaring fire, which can provide a source of light and heat, with flames that are perfect for roasting marshmallows for s’mores. Professional design, installation, and placement of your fire feature will enhance the safety and enjoyment of your fireplace or fire pit and ensure it will last for years to come.

Prepare for Spring

Winter is a great time to get your garden ready for the spring by completing the following tasks:

  • Prune many varieties of trees and shrubs while they are dormant and before spring growth begins.
  • Plant new trees during periods of dormancy to minimize the disruption to the growth process.
  • Plan ahead to determine your course of action for the spring, including any changes you want to make to plant materials or hardscaping.

Keep Watering

As long as the outdoor air and soil temperatures remain above 40 degrees, continue to water your grass, fruit trees, and shrubs as needed during periods when the weather is dry. With no snow cover, plants may be deprived of vital moisture and may suffer root damage or be more susceptible to diseases.
