Lawn Care During Winter.

It's starting to look a lot like Christmas, and it's starting to feel like it too! Lawn Care During Winter in Florida.  Those temperatures are dropping quickly, even in usually warm and sunny Florida. During the winter months, it's important to make sure anything living outdoors, like various plants and luscious green yards, get the proper attention.

Watering your lawn may not be something you think is necessary as much during the winter, but you would be wrong. You should keep up with the same lawn maintenance that you would any other month out of the years. The amount of water used may change slightly, especially if it's a rainy winter season - which happens in Florida often. But a healthy lawn should get at least 1"-1 ½" of water a week, with waterings being 2 to 3 times a week. So while it's not necessary or recommended to water every day, it is essential to keep up a similar routine in the winter. It is also important to be wary of various frost warnings and making sure pipes don't freeze overnight.

Some may think watering before a freeze comes to a bad idea and could damage their green grass come spring. On the contrary! Watering before a freeze comes in can actually help the grass protect itself from a potentially damaging frost. Make sure to tend to the lawn a day or two in advance to give the grass time to absorb the water and strengthen in time to fight the incoming freezing temperatures.

Just like with watering in the warmer months, it is highly damaging to your yard to over-water or under-water it. Make sure to pay close attention to your watering schedule, especially if it's set on an irrigation system. Seasonal adjustments are part of the maintenance on an irrigation system, so it's highly recommended to figure out the adjustment settings or call out those who installed the system and have it set up for the cold weeks ahead.

What Your Neighbors Are Saying About Mansfield Landscaping

Just had Mansfield landscape do our yard and am very happy with not only the work done, but with the large size and healthy quality of the plants and palms. The crew was wonderful and completed a major job in a half day. Extra plants were added and all the beds received extra mulching at no extra charge. I would highly recommend this company to anyone looking for a good, reliable landscape company.

Mansfield did our landscaping in the last 3 weeks and we couldn't be any happier. The did a phenomonal job in a short amount of time and we are ecstatic. Please feel free to come by and see ours on Evinston Court.

Thank you so much for replacing the plants in our yard that did not survive the winter. Everything looks so beautiful, and I am very grateful to you and your employees for doing such a wonderful job.

Mary Ann Flynn (The Villages)

I wanted to take a minute to personally thank you for the great job you and your staff did on my back yard at my house. Everything turned out so beautiful. Every time I call you, I receive great, on time service at a fair price. You cannot ask for anything more than that.

Thanks again for having your staff stop by and put out the colorful annuals, just in time for Stephanies wedding. It really added that finishing touch to my already beautiful yard. Thanks for everything.

We agree with Angie. Our landscaping was done by Mansfield Landscaping when we purchased our new home. Almost two years later one of our Sylvester palms was dying. We contacted Steve, and 2 days later the dying Sylvester was removed and new one planted...and at no cost. That is what we call service! We still receive compliments on the landscaping wall, islands, etc. Highly recommend Mansfield Landscaping.

My wife and I presented our landscape ideas to several landscapers in The Villages but no one quite made an impression until we contacted Mansfield Landscaping. We viewed several of their job sites and were fascinated by what we saw and in talking to the homeowners, knew we were headed in the right direction. Ron and his crew took our thoughts and within two days turned them into reality. Their talent and experience is reflected in the work they do and the end result was beyond our expectations. Once again, thanks Mansfield Landscaping for a job well done.

Steve did a fantastic job. I enjoyed the relationship with Steve. I spent two or three hours at his nursery talking to him.

My home is for sale and Steve has certainly improved it's curb appeal both front and back. He's very innovative. His suggestions have worked wonders!
