Getting Your Yard Ready for Winter Tyrone, GA
Winter Trees

Summer leaves are turning beautiful shades of orange, yellow and red. The air has become crisp and you’re breaking out your winter coat. You’re switching from iced coffee to hot tea. Autumn is one of the most beautiful and alluring of all the seasons. But what should you be doing to prepare your yard for the wet, harsh and freezing elements to come? There are some important things you should do to prep the outdoor landscape of your home for wintertime. Here at Lanier Yardscapes, we’re happy to share some wisdom with you to make sure your yard stays healthy through the cold months to come.

Don’t Leave the Leaves

A great place to start when prepping your yard for winter is gathering up all the fallen leaves, acorns, pinecones and debris that the autumn winds gifted into your yard. This can be a time-consuming task but it is important to add to your schedule when you’re winter-prepping. Leaves left around will become gooey, nasty and slippery once fall rain and the first snowfall of winter come around. These leaves, if not properly cleaned up, can harm your grass. Leaves left around through winter can also potentially stain your deck or patio. Save yourself the extra effort during spring cleaning by clearing your yard now.

The Last Mow of the Season

Cutting your grass before it’s covered in snow and rain is going to make a huge difference in the quality of your lawn when spring rolls back around. Determine which areas of your lawn are prone to snow coverage, and cut these areas down. We suggest 4-5 inches for snow-prone areas. Too short grass and cold temperatures plus winter wetness could damage your grass roots. While too long grass under wetness and snow can grow mold and mildew and other nasty things nobody wants to deal with in springtime.

Drain The Pipes

Don’t forget to drain your irrigation system! The last thing you need is your pipes freezing. Frozen pipes could easily break or be damaged. This is easily avoidable, just drain them now before it’s too late. You can take your hoses and other external sprinklers into a dry and warm place while you’re at it. Better safe than sorry when it comes to your summer appliances – keep them dry and safe from winter weather.

Find a Winter Fertilizer

You may think you don’t need to worry about your grass in the winter, but a good winter fertilizer will promote root health all winter long and leave your grass growing back more beautifully than ever come springtime.

This seems like a lot of work, but your yard will thank you when winter is over. Plus, it saves you time in the long run. Lanier Yardscapes is happy to help with the job.

Alex C.

Lanier Yardscapes came out to my property swiftly upon inquiry to give an estimate for our outdoor lighting project. I had several quotes, but it was the customer service and attention to detail that made our choice to go with this company. Communication process was smooth and during installation they took care to treat our home with respect. I would highly recommend this team in my own personal future projects or any interested in making their outdoor space enjoyable.

Jason R.

Alex and his entire Team were amazing! They were concerned with every detail and took the time to get everything just right, not stopping until we were completely satisfied. We highly recommend them.

Barbara F.

Alex and his crew do great work! They are all very nice guys, respectful and courteous as they work. The attention to detail is exemplary, and the whole crew take pride in the job they do, something that’s hard to find these days. They work as a team, and when Alex is on site, he works just as hard as everyone else. Very pleased with my landscaping, they are professionals.

Nikole L.

Lanier Landscapes did an excellent job! Ron and his crew worked hard and made sure that everything was done to our specifications. The crew was also very knowledgeable and cleaned up after themselves. When we learned that our sprinkler system needed an overhaul, they informed us ahead of time what kind of pricing we were looking at. Easy to work with! Ron was a hoot!

Bill M.

Alex Lanier and his crew did a wonderful job with a new stone patio for my back yard including some Landscaping and mulch! My wife is overjoyed. Not only did they do a great job but when I wanted a minor adjustment they came back out and did it for me for no charge. He also came in under budget for the mulch and did a Super job! It is a shame you only get 5 stars they deserve a 6 star rating. I will defiantly use them again and would highly recommend them to anyone else. Just know that because they are so good you need to book them well in advance.

Charles H.

Fantastic experience! Very professional in all phases of grading, irrigation preparation and sod installation. All of the crew were as nice as could be. We had some time constraints and Alex and his men handled them without hesitation. Stellar outfit!
