Prescott Landscape Professionals recommend using the winter months to plan and prepare for spring

As we settle into the winter months in the central highlands, now is the perfect time to plan ahead and make changes to your landscape. How about replacing overgrown shrubs and trees or adding a new water feature? Maybe you’ve been thinking about new pavers for your old concrete patio. It’s never too early to have professional landscapers come and help you bring to life your vision for a yard that fits your home and lifestyle.

Josh Crothers, Owner of Prescott Landscape Professionals, said many people believe landscapers don’t work too hard during the winter months.

“This just isn’t true,” he said. “We’re busy helping clients with clean-up, winter pruning, and planning for the warm months ahead. It’s the perfect time to redesign your yard and plant new trees too.”

Winter is also a time to check in on the health of the trees and plants around your yard. When your trees go dormant, particularly evergreens, it’s also a great time to prune them so they’re lush and blooming in the spring.  Landscapers will tell you that the best way to stimulate a plant to grow is to cut it back, and sometimes way back. Fruit trees in particular thrive on being pruned and the elimination of the upright shoots. If you wait until spring, you may cause excessive loss of sap and it can lower fruit yields. Pruning can be tricky, so it’s best to hire the experts so your landscape will be alive and well this spring!

Trust Prescott Landscape Professionals for everything your yard needs to look its best and survive the cold months ahead.
