While the first official day of winter isn’t until December 20th, many of us are already firmly in winter mode. As you survey your property with a mug of hot cocoa in hand, what do you see? If you can’t help but add more and more items to your landscaping to-do list, don’t fret! You don’t have to wait for warmer weather to get work done in your outdoor spaces. Consider starting one of these winter-friendly landscaping projects, and don’t forget to contact Lehnhoff’s Supply for landscape and hardscape supply delivery.
Landscape Supply Delivery Makes it Easy to Build a Patio or Deck
Although freezing temperatures and precipitation can get in the way of installing hardscape features like asphalt and concrete, some of the milder winter days are definitely conducive to other types of projects. Build a natural stone patio or deck this winter to have a stunning space that’s ready for relaxing and entertaining guests in the spring. Natural stone walkways, patios, and driveways add both practicality and beauty to a property, and constructing them in the winter can minimize disruption to nearby plants that may be dormant in colder weather.
Make Changes to Your Property’s Slope and Drainage
If you’ve noticed pooling water or soggy grass throughout the year, think about making some improvements to your property’s drainage. Regrade problem areas or install a French drain to redirect water and minimize the risk of damage during next year’s spring showers. You can also try leveling out slopes, creating a terraced garden, or making other changes to your landscape’s topography with a truckload of fill material from Lehnhoff’s Supply. Make sure to work on warmer days if excavation is on your agenda, though — digging into frozen ground can be nearly impossible.
Prepare Garden Beds for the Growing Season
Some of us spend all winter fantasizing about how we’ll flex our green thumbs in the spring. Putting in some work before the weather warms up allows you to hit the ground running at the start of the growing season. Create a new raised bed or two to house your vegetables and flowers, or revamp some in-ground beds for your favorite perennials and annuals.
