Seasons Greetings-December Tips

Many people look at December as one of the busiest months of the year. After having made it through the Thanksgiving holiday, many are caught up in the hustle and bustle of preparing for Christmas. While traditions vary by family, many individuals are found shopping, wrapping, decorating, cooking, preparing to travel, or preparing to host out of town visitors. Whatever it is that is keeping you so busy, we wanted to encourage you not to forget about maintaining your outdoor space this time of year. After all, what you take care of (or don’t take care of) will effect your spring landscaping.Happy Holidays
