Cold March, Still Need Landscape Tips

Did you know this March had the most days of below-average temperatures since 1981? April’s nearly here. Warmer weather is (FINALLY!) just around the corner. You can enjoy landscape improvements you make in April for the entire warm weather season in Wisconsin. A custom-designed brick patio or pathway will improve the value of your home and the natural beauty and warmth of brick and stone adds a touch of elegance to your property. Increase the patio and pathway nighttime beauty with commercial-grade landscape lighting. Custom-designed light can create stunning evening beauty for your home.

Late-March Landscaping Tip

Don’t forget to check and clean out your gutters. The high winds of the past couple months may have deposited unwelcome branches and other materials that can clog up your gutter drainage.

Anticipating Your Lawn’s Return

We have had a brutal two months to close out this winter season, but that doesn’t mean spring temperatures aren’t right around the corner. While the forecasters tell us another visit by Mother Nature’s snow machine is not out of the question, we’d like to remind you that sensible gardening has to pay attention to the erosion that’s possible with the spring melt.

Especially in cases where your home is built on a steeper grade, runoff from piles of snow can quickly become gushing torrents, carving ruts into the sides of your property.

One way to avoid these issues is to push your end-of-season snow banks further away from your house. Be sure to watch for and avoid blocking off any drainage culverts.

Another way is to consider a terracing job once the warmer weather is truly in swing. Proper drainage will ensure your basement stays safe and dry, while also increasing the curbside appeal of your house, raising its market value.
