Outdoor activity has slowed down for the season. As plants and trees lay dormant and the air turns chill, the to-do list shortens for your tree and landscape needs. Assuming you’ve taken care of all the safety precautions for extreme and unpredictable weather, your outside maintenance can leave you at a standstill.
If this Nashville winter has you in a lull, use this checklist for tasks that may have been on the backburner, until now.
1. Collect firewood — this is a perfect time of year to cozy-up to a fire during cold, bitter nights. Be sure you have enough firewood to last you the rest of the season, even through the summer. (Campfires, anyone?) If you need any help, The Parke Company is always readily available to answer any questions, as well as offering customers firewood services.`
2. Leaf and garden bed clean up — Some things just need to go on the backburner. We get it. If cleaning up your garden beds was one of them, then this is a great time to go ahead and get it taken care of. Make sure garden beds are ready for spring prepping, and clean up all those leftover leaves from autumn. If you need extra assistance with cleaning, mulching or composting, The Parke Company is always more than happy to make sure these services are completed in a timely and safely manner.
3. Holiday decorating — Christmas, New Year, Valentine’s Day — they all need a little bit of decorating cheer. Although Christmas and New Year are behind us, take some time to bring a little “love” to your mailbox, door or garden for Valentine’s Day. Decorating for a holiday is always a great way to liven up a dormant garden and lawn. For the holiday season, the Parke Company decorated a portion of their client’s mailboxes. Feel free to ask The Parke Company any questions regarding decorating techniques and services for your mailbox for the upcoming holidays.
This time of the year can often be slow one. So take advantage of the simple things, such as gathering firewood! Get all those odds and ends finished before life gets too busy. The more you can get done now, the less you have to worry about when spring arrives.
