Winter

It's our business at TPS Landscaping to be aware of how your landscaping will look in all of the seasons. While some people don't think of winter as a time to focus on landscaping, we definitely want your yard to look the best it can all year round. It's what makes our Asheville and Hendersonville, NC area so beautiful!

Some of our days are getting really nice and warm! No doubt that it’s got you thinking spring and being outdoors. As you prepare for spring and begin to think about your mulching needs, there are few things to keep in mind.
Prepare the area:

Pull weeds or cut them close to the ground, if you are mulching for weed control. While not strictly necessary, it will help the mulch, and anything under it, to lay flat, and it will slow down the weed growth. Remember, mulch prevents weed growth by excluding light.
Enrich the soil and dig the beds, if you plan to do so.
Lay down anything you want under the mulch, such as landscaping fabric or plastic.
Add a generous thickness of mulch. The depth of mulch is really important if you want to retain moisture and prevent weed growth. Aim for at least two to four inches (5-10cm) of depth.

Better yet, if you don't want to deal with the hassle of mulching (and it can make for a tiring day), give us a call! We have a Mulch Special of 10% off (when we spread it) until the end of March!


Of course, when winter comes, you can hole up indoors like everyone else. Or you can add an elegant fire pit to your patio and enjoy the outdoors year-round. If you're opting for the latter, the question is really a matter of maintenance—which fire pit best serves your needs? Here's a rundown of three types of outdoor fire pits to help you decide:


Just because it's winter doesn't mean you can't adorn your porch and yard with beautiful plants! Most people assume that, if their landscaping doesn't already include planted evergreens, then decorative greenery is out of the question for the cold season. But as long as you consider your local climate before purchasing, potted plants can be your best friend.


Christmas may have already come and gone, but that doesn't mean your curb appeal has to get any less festive! While you might be packing away the jingle bells and electric candy canes, there's still a variety of outdoor decorations that will brighten up your winter style.
