Tips from Swingle Lawn, Tree and Landscape Care

Put your landscape to sleep for the winter

DENVER - Pleasant conditions and unusually warm weather stretches on in the front range.

But before you put your lawn to rest for the winter, now is the perfect time for Indian Summer chores.

Homeowners should test their soil for moisture by sticking a screwdriver into the ground. If it goes into the ground easily, there is no need to water your lawn.

Fall mulch will aid in a spring recovery. Adding mulch to a depth of two to three inches around trees, shrubs and flower beds is beneficial.

Pruning out dead wood from small trees and ornaments should also be finished before old man winter sets in. Homeowners are advised to call a professional if work requires them to get off the ground.
