Each year the seasons come and go — and in Northern Colorado, that means exchanging our warm, sunny summer for a chilly, potentially rough winter. While the seasonal change does not bother most people, the way that the winter months affect their yard might.

As a residential landscape design company in Northern Colorado, we spend most of our summer designing and creating beautiful outdoor landscapes for homeowners in Loveland, Fort Collins, and Greeley. While these outdoor living spaces might not be as usable during the winter months, there are things that you can do to “winterize” your landscape and prepare it for summer use once the cold winter months end and the spring thaw arrives.

In today’s blog post, we are going to discuss a few tips and tricks that you can use to prepare your beautiful landscaping for winter. Continue reading to learn more.

Where did the summer go? Another beautiful one has come and almost gone here in the most beautiful place to live this side of the Mississippi. Yes, we are fairly lucky to live here in Northern Colorado. The Front Range is a magical place to be pretty much the whole year round, but when we get the kind of moisture we experienced this summer, the combination of blue sky and lush green is a healthy reminder of just how great we have it.

Summer is starting to wrap up, and soon it will be fall. Many people adore fall for its crisp air and vivid foliage. They especially like fall if they've been mowing their lawns all summer and are ready for a break. They'll probably be mowing for a little while longer, though, because Colorado autumns tend to be mild and heated in the middle by what we call "Indian Summer." However, that doesn't mean you can't get started prepping your landscape to go to sleep and embrace fall in all of its glory at the same time.

The team at Showcase Landscape & Irrigation loves fall, and we are proud to be helping home and business owners in Loveland enjoy fall while looking ahead to winter. Our passion for landscaping has shown us opportunities that can make all the difference, and we want to share what we know with you!

Spring is in the air! At Showcase Landscape & Irrigation, we love this season.

Understanding just what will work for your property and budget is very important, and our expert team can help.

Winter-and-Your-Lawn-5a99c17d7a47a.jpg

Winter continues in Colorado, and though spring is on its way, it is going to be a while until it shows up. At Showcase Landscape and Irrigation, we know that this season is your grass's resting time. It needs the winter to rest up for the spring and summer, which can be very tiring for it. However, even while dormant, it isn't dead. It can still be affected by the weather, and winter can be pretty brutal. The winter will affect your grass's summer, and in today's blog, we want to discuss some of the effects cold weather may be having on your lawn right now.

Help-Your-Landcaping-Through-A-Dry-Winter-5a3939a581279.jpg

We've had a pretty warm, dry fall so far, and as we hit December, we're all wondering: where is the snow?

In Colorado, we depend on cold season snow to water our trees, shrubs, and lawns. However, we don't really get a consistent, even amount. Winter can be particularly hard on plants here because of our dry air, low soil moisture, low precipitation, and temperatures that fluctuate all over the place. People assume that the plants are asleep when they're really in deep distress due to drought. Even worse, we're seeing an increase in lawn mite activity. Lawn mites suck the moisture out of both the blades and roots of the grass, causing serious damage. If you don't supplement your landscaping's water, it can suffer permanent problems. In today's blog, we want to talk about winter watering and how to handle it.

Fall is a time when people tend to stop caring for their lawns. School has started, the days are getting shorter, and many Coloradoans have their eyes on ski season instead of caring for their slower-growing lawns. However, dismissing your lawn in the fall is a mistake. This is a key season for its health, and neglecting it now can put it at risk for the coming winter and spring.

So just what happens in your lawn during the fall?

Many people are familiar with the practice of lawn aeration - we’ve all seen lawns poked full of holes, cylindrical clumps of dirt scattered throughout. But while you may be able to recognize that aeration has taken place, you may not know the reasons behind this important aspect of lawn care. As the name implies, aeration allows for air to reach the roots of your grass. Water and nutrients are also delivered to the roots, allowing them to grow strong and deep.
