Here comes fall!! This summer was definitely one for the books but can I say I am quite excited to be snuggled up with a warm blanket in my home watching movies in this cooler weather. With it getting cooler outside you may want to make sure your yard is ready for this change. Do you have hoses you don’t plan on using during the cold? You may want to cover those so your pipes don’t freeze. We may get a good amount of snow this winter so stocking up on deicer or kitty litter should help you get in and out of your driveway no problem. Also, don’t forget about that garden. Make sure you have pulled all vegetables and fruits that wont make it through the freezing months. If you plan on still growing through the cold season then make sure you have your stock ready. Being proactive is always better than being reactive. We can build you a new sitting porch for watching the snow fall or to watch your kids playing in the snow making snow angels or snowmen. Can even install heaters to keep you warm outside. Don’t have to be cold while outside in your own yard. If you have ideas, lets talk. We are one call away at 425-224-2004.

Over the past year, many of you put your heart and soul into your garden. Millions of people took up gardening during the COVID-19 pandemic, and according to the National Gardening Association, 67% are growing or planning to grow vegetables, herbs, and fruits in 2021.
Any gardener knows that plants depend on sunlight to grow, and shorter days and freezing temperatures can do all kinds of damage. So with autumn and winter just on the horizon, you may be wondering how to protect your plants for the cooler months ahead.
“While it can sometimes be a big undertaking, when homeowners take additional steps to prepare their gardens for the winter season, their efforts will show in the health of their plants come springtime,” says Garrett Magee, one of the founders of landscape design firm Manscapers.
below, Magee offers his top tips for green thumbs to keep their garden in peak shape through the fall and depths of winter. if you’re concerned about how your fruits, vegetables, herbs, and flowers will fare, read on.

Tune In To The Weather In Your Area
Prepping your garden for cooler months will depend on where you live.
“If you live in a cold winter climate like me in New York, you’ll want to make sure all your gardens and planters get a good layer of mulch to insulate your plants. Think of it as putting a blanket around your plants to keep them warm through the winter months,” says Magee.
He says to ensure mulch doesn’t touch the trunks of trees and shrubs to prevent rot and other diseases.
“For ceramic and terra-cotta pots, you want to make sure you store them in a cool, dry place where they won’t freeze and crack,” he says.

Bring Your Herbs Inside For The Winter
“If you want to access your edible garden during the winter, bring it inside. While some herbs like basil will survive the first frost, they generally don’t do well in cold temperatures,” says Magee.
Plus, you’ll want your herbs at arm’s reach as you prepare those hearty stews. Magee likes to repot his herbs into plastic containers ahead of the colder months “and keep them near the kitchen so I can easily reach them while I’m cooking.”
