Winter Landscape Maintenance

Landscape Maintenance PlanA few weeks ago, in our blog “Landscape Maintenance Tips to get your Lawn ready for Winter,” the landscaping experts at Urban Gardens outlined the benefits of fall landscape maintenance. A beautiful yard will not stay that way for long without regular maintenance, ranging from basic pruning to mulching and so much more. Unfortunately, many homeowners do not have the time to adequately maintain their landscape. People are pretty busy these days. There isn’t always time for watering, pruning, mulching, and fertilizing. So what do these homeowners do?

The Benefits of Fire Pits

Benefits of Fire Pits“Winter is coming.” You don’t have to be a Game of Thrones fan to know that much to be true. Fall is in full swing and the weather is quickly dropping. We have even seen a few snow flurries recently. Because of this, people everywhere are covering their patio furniture and heading indoors, neglecting their landscape until the weather warms. But why? Who said you can’t reap the benefits of your beautiful backyard throughout fall and winter?

The Benefits of Fire Pits: The Perfect Winter Addition to any Landscape

If you love the great outdoors, a fire pit could be the perfect addition to your backyard. Benefits include:

  1. Entertainment: Do you like hosting parties? Is your home the local hangout spot for friends and family? If so, you NEED a fire pit. It is the perfect way to extend your parties well into the night, providing both light and warmth.
  2. Roast those Marshmallows: Nothing beats gathering around an open fire and roasting some marshmallows. But it doesn’t stop there. Add a grill to your fire pit and you can cook just about anything over the open flame.
  3. Focal Point: A fire pit could be the focal point your landscape so desperately needs.
  4. Home Value: A professionally built fire pit can add to your home value, while also making your home easier to sell. That’s what we like to call a win-win.
