When the weather turns colder I often get questions about our winter landscaping tasks in the park. I personally feel like we have more to do in the off-season than we do when we are open. The off-season is full of projects that prepare us for the coming year.
During the season our job is to maintain the park for our guests. The hedges are trimmed, the turf is mowed, the flower beds are changed from pansies to summer annuals to mums and everything gets watered and fed as needed. All of this happens before the guests arrive.
However, during the off season we have all day, five days a week, to move plants to other locations, make room for new attractions and landscape the finished product. We can even change entire sections of the park. There also is continued turf mowing, leaf and mulch removal, flower planting for the coming season, shrub pruning and even trimming of the crape myrtles.
As you see, there is a lot to do in the off-season. I’d love to hear what you do in your personal gardens during fall and winter.
I hope you’ll continue to follow the blogs through the winter season so you’ll find out about our progress.
