Pick Your Plants and Flowers With the Season in Mind

Fill your landscape with plants and flowers that are seasonally appropriate.  Though the climate of central California is relatively mild, it is important to take seasonal temperature changes into account when planting.

Wintertime ushers in poinsettia season! Be sure to move your poinsettias inside at night to prevent freezing. Even though many flowers & plants are dormant this time of year, it is important to plant trees, perennials, shrubs, and bulbs at this time. This will allow them to establish a solid root system before spring. Similarly, if you haven’t pruned your roses, now is the time! Remove spindly, dead or crossing branches and do not leave any buds. Pansies and snapdragons are other winter-friendly blooms that will give your landscape color during the cooler months.

Synthetic grass from SYNLawn Fresno can be customized to accommodate a wide variety of planting beds and existing landscape elements. Artificial grass can be manicured to complement almost any shape and design of natural plants, trees and flower beds.

Winter Curb Appeal & Maintenance

There are certain steps that need to be taken to properly maintain the appearance and functionality of your home. Be sure to clean your gutters and drain water from hoses before the temperatures drop. Coil up hoses and bring them indoors for the winter. Water expands when it freezes and may damage the hose if left outside.

The winter season is an especially good time to focus on the front door to make the entrance of your home inviting to guests.  Try a new coat of paint on in a vibrant shade or rich jewel tone. Keep light fixtures clean and in working order. Subtle wintry decorations, such as small lights on your shrubs or a festive wreath on the door, will welcome guests into your home.
