First off, and this seems easy, but take care of your lawn. Be careful walking on your grass in early mornings if frost is present because your foot prints can do damage. Also, the Star Nursery landscaping experts offer these others insights: “Mowing should not be often needed during this month. Fescue should not be cut short at any time. Fertilization with high nitrogen fertilizers like WinterGem™ is appropriate now.”
Pruning is also very important in January. Prune deciduous trees and shrubs and also roses. Roses need to be dormant to fully thrive in the next blooming season. By pruning them back in the winter, this allows them to rejuvenate and to be beautiful in the spring and summer.
