When you think of lawn care, it is probably safe to assume you think about the spring or summer months. However, there can be a large variety of plant life growing in your yard that needs to be pruned during the colder winter months. And the more you prune and trim back these plants, the more organic waste and debris you will create. Because of this, it is important you know how to take care of this organic debris properly, even during the winter.
Dealing With Organic Debris
During the dead of winter, a lot of plants are dormant, which means it can actually be one of the safest times for you to prune any non-spring blooming plants you may have in your yard.
Pruning these plants during their dormant periods is also beneficial to the plants themselves because it gives them a lot of extra root energy, which can help with growth in the remaining branches leaving you with a much healthier plant come spring. As well, a properly pruned plant is more likely to produce more flowerings and fruits. Some selective trimming during the winter months is also a great way to help some plants and trees defend themselves against pests and disease, which can help reduce the amount of spring cleaning you need to do when the time comes.
Winter Pruning Tips
When doing winter pruning, it is best to do so on a mild and dry day, and you should take care to always start pruning the dead or diseased branches out first before moving onto the overgrown, smaller branches. Removing these can help circulate more light and air down the crown of the tree.
Winter Debris Cleanup
When you are done pruning your plants and trees for the winter, you will be left with a lot more organic waste than you may be used to. Hiring professional junk removers is a quick and easy way to make sure the job is done quickly and properly.
