TAMPA, Fla. (PRWEB) January 16, 2018

As winter peaks, you may think it's time to bundle up inside and forget about your landscaping. However, there are key tasks to complete during the colder months that will help your landscape burst into spring. MaintenX is helping Florida businesses landscaping look its best throughout the holiday season.

"We're lucky in Florida to experience relatively mild winters," said Bill Schaphorst, MaintenX's VP of Business Development. "However, there are still a few precautions to take that will help keep your landscaping in top shape this season."

For more than 30 years, MaintenX International has been helping local businesses with their landscaping needs. Here are some tips to help keep your landscaping at its best.

Keep Your Plants Happy
Florida gets less rain in the winter months, so make sure to provide adequate water to plants. It is especially important to water new plants, as it will help the plants take root. It is also important to ensure you have a layer of mulch as it provides a number of benefits like regulating moisture levels, reducing weed growth, and helping to retain heat from the sun.

Don't Leave Fallen Leaves
As the final leaves fall from your trees and plants, don't leave them on your lawn. The leaf-cover can prevent sunlight from reaching your grass, causing blades to turn limp and brown, creating a spotty look on the lawn.

Prevent Power Accidents
Holiday decorations and lighting are festive and fun. Remember to point out power sources and cords to your maintenance and landscaping crews. This communication will help identify any hidden hazards, keeping your holiday decor and work crews safe from harm.

Cover Delicate Plants
When the temperature dips below 40 degrees, it's wise to cover your more tender landscaping with an old blanket or sheet. Avoid using plastic covers, though, as these will retain condensation causing leaves to burn once the sun returns.
