NORCROSS, GA, January 08, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Landscaping supplies and professionals can turn your yard around during the mild winter months and make it look great even as it faces the dip in temperature. The local wall stone experts at Bulks Landscape Supply offer the following tips for business and home owners:
Know the Importance of Watering Your Plants
The most overlooked and yet one of the most obvious things any landscaping needs is water - and just the right amount of it. During the fall, the leaves dried up, and during this time, many people thought that their plants did not need water. However, this is wrong. Trees, shrubs and even evergreens need the right amount of water because they are constantly losing it through their leaves and spines. Plants store water during the fall to use during the winter to stay healthy.
Understand How Much Mulching is Needed
Adhere to the rule of using not too little and not too much. The right amount of mulch is very important to help your plants insulate their roots from the cold and protect themselves against excessive water loss. However, adding too much mulch can encourage rodents, such as rats, to set up residence on your lawn. Buying professional landscape supplies, or hiring a professional to come to your home or business to mulch your yard for you is advised.
Coat the Plants with an Anti-desiccant
Plants with large leaf surfaces and pines lose water all throughout the wintertime, being unable to draw much of it from the ground. A good anti-desiccant will help your plants retain most of their water by giving the surface of your plants a waxy coating that helps prevent evaporation. A knowledgeable landscape supply store can recommend a good anti-desiccant, or a local professional can go to you to help you apply it correctly.
Invest in Quality Fertilizer
Fertilizers that are rich in nitrogen help your plants absorb all the nutrition they'll need before their root systems shut down for the cold season. Potassium applications also help keep plants healthy when the temperature outside is low.
Call on the Experts
As previously mentioned, hiring a landscaping supply professional is the best way to make sure you have all the proper products, tools and expertise at your disposal. "Our team is knowledgeable of year-round upkeep and can guide any consumer on how best to maintain their beautiful landscaping throughout the winter season we're in right now," says Candice Sanchez, General Manager of Bulks Landscape Supply.
Instead of doing it all by yourself and running the risk of making a mistake, it's easier to hire a professional and know you're in good hands.
