Is Your HOA Landscaping Ready for Colder Weather?

If you run an HOA for the residents in the Medford, Oregon area this fall, you may want to consider having your community ready for cold weather as soon as possible.  If the HOA cares for the lawns, trees, or plants in front of homes or a central building, then there may be a big list of things to get done before winter.

Trees

Trees may need pruning services and to have mulch put around them to keep water around the roots as much as possible throughout the winter months. 

Leaves

You may already have leaves falling.  Gathering the leaves is essential so that they don’t become a problem when they get wet.  Leaving leaves on the ground can cause people to slip and fall and may sometimes cause problems for the grass and soil that it covers.  It is best to have leaves removed from the property, and it also looks more managed.

Fertilizing

Trash and Debris

Prune Shrubs

Some shrubs may need a trim to make sure they stay healthy and grow better in the spring.  Any plants that look overgrown or unhealthy should have pruning services so they look good and can withstand the colder temperatures better.

Planting

If new trees are going into the landscaping in your community.  Fall is the time to get them in the ground.  Then, they will grow with the other trees in the spring, so the growth is natural.

Irrigation
