As the seasons change, so do the needs of your landscaping. The professionals at Reliable Landscape understand the importance of keeping your outdoor space looking its best year-round. That's why we've put together some seasonal landscaping tips to help you maintain a beautiful and healthy landscape throughout the year.


1. Clean up debris: After the winter months, your landscape may be littered with fallen leaves, branches, and other debris. Be sure to clean up your yard to allow for new growth and prevent pests from taking up residence.

2. Start planting: Spring is the perfect time to add new plants and flowers to your landscape. Choose a variety of colors and textures to create a visually appealing garden.

3. Mulch your beds: Applying a fresh layer of mulch to your flower beds and around trees and shrubs can help retain moisture and regulate soil temperature.


1. Water wisely: During the hot summer months, it's important to water your landscape regularly. Water in the early morning or late evening to avoid evaporation.

2. Prune as needed: Keep your trees and shrubs in shape by pruning any overgrown or dead branches. This will help promote new growth and keep your landscape looking tidy.

3. Add some shade: Consider planting trees or installing awnings or pergolas to provide shade for outdoor seating areas.


1. Rake leaves: As the leaves start to fall, be sure to rake them up regularly to prevent them from suffocating your lawn.

2. Plant for next year: Fall is a great time to plant bulbs and perennials that will bloom in the spring. Be sure to follow planting instructions for each type of plant.

3. Aerate your lawn: Aerating your lawn in the fall can help improve soil drainage and promote healthy root growth.


1. Protect your plants: To prevent frost damage, cover delicate plants with burlap or move them to a protected area.

2. Keep pathways clear: Shovel snow and ice from walkways and driveways to prevent slips and falls.

3. Plan for next year: Use the winter months to plan any new landscaping projects or upgrades you'd like to tackle in the spring.
