Colorado springs wintercare for yards

Though landscape plants are dormant and brown in winter, they need to be watered periodically. By winter watering, your lawn, landscape plants and trees will have a much better chance of greening up when the warm weather of spring returns.

  • Choose a warm winter day with air temperature above 40 degrees and unfrozen soil.
  • Water one to two times per month from November to April.
  • It is important to water newly-planted lawns, trees, shrubs and flowers.
  • Established lawn and trees, especially those in sunny, wind, or exposed areas should also be high priority
  • Water slowly so it can soak in.
  • Use a hose-end sprinkler or watering wand since automatic sprikler systems are off during the winter.
  • Remove the hose from the spigot after watering to prevent freezing damage.
  • To figure out how long to water, put out cups to catch some of the water. Water until you can measure 0.5 – 1′ deep in the cups.

Susanna, we usually get a 3-4 foot deep frost and the water would just flow across the surface. I would never think to water in winter
