Clarity in the Cold
Dormant Season Landscape Maintenance
We all have noticed the leaves falling, the shorter days, longer nights, and most of all the cold. As everyone settles in for winter hibernation Mack Landscape Management, LLC. is gearing up for the winter season.
Property maintenance objectives and preventative care can be done more effectively around this time of year. As leaves fall off your deciduous trees the cracks, stressed limbs, and disease becomes more apparent. The structure of your trees and shrubs are reduced to skeletons at this time so shaping and thinning to reduce winter storm damage is a breeze.
Winter is the best time to treat your trees and shrubs if they show signs of disease. Pests, blight, and funguses go into dormancy at the same time your plants do so the risk of spreading the infection by way of pruning is reduced to nothing. There is no need to sterilize our saws after each cut so the process is much more time effective which in turn saves you money.
If you have noticed any drainage issues or flooding after the past few rainstorms please let our Storm Water Division know and we can address the problems before the ground freezes and those puddles turn into ice. If the winter is as mild as the forecast we can continue to clean and redirect gutter and downspouts to remedy your water issues in the short term. In the long term we can discuss plans to change grades and install systems to effectively and attractively solve your drainage issues.
The Snow is Coming and So Are We!
As for this season, Mack Landscape Management, LLC. has compiled its initial plow routes. If you have not responded to our emails concerning snow removal contracts, please call or email us so you aren't snowed in after the first storm. Our staff is waiting to hear from you!
For the more ambitious who are sick of dealing with the snow altogether, why not consider a low voltage heating system for your drive or walkway. Never slip and slide again!
It also happens to be the best time to schedule meetings with our Salesmen to plan for Spring and Summer projects. When your property is barren of perennials and deciduous cover imagine it a blank palette to explore new goals and projects. We encourage you to take a stroll around your property and make an inventory of what you would like to change or improve. Our staff is eagerly awaiting your call. Winter passes by quickly, much like daylight this time of year, and we will be filling our Spring schedule fast.
Mack Landscape Management, LLC. has taken the initiative. We are currently evaluating your properties to alert you of any concerns or suggestions we have from our perspective. Our foremen, salesmen, and the owner, Eric Mack, are all participating in this endeavor to compile emails for you. You will be hearing from us soon.
We here at Mack wish you a Happy Holiday Season!
