Summer is about to come to a close and fall is getting ready to hit Nebraska. Fall is one of the most beautiful times of the year, and we all try our best to enjoy every bit of it before winter arrives. If you have been thinking about doing a landscaping project this year, whether that’s putting up a new fence, building a deck, or replanting your trees, now is the time to do it before we are covered in snow. This is also a time to be proactive about your lawn and take the necessary steps to winterize it before the first freeze hits. By doing this, not only will you be prepared for winter weather, but you will also be prepared for spring when the ice melts and it’s time to maintain our lawn again. We spoke to local lawn care and landscaping professionals about the landscaping projects you still have time to complete, and what you should do to protect your outdoor space against the soon-to-come bitter cold.
